Not usually anti-Boston but I've had more than enough of the Red Sox of late with their hockey beards and incessant "grittiness". Go Tigers!

I have too but I picked them to win. I have absolutely no one left to root for. I don't particularly care for any of the 4 teams left in the playoffs, although I do admire the Cardinals organization.

I would've picked meteor, but I assume it's a boring meteor made of rock and ice, and not a meteor made of churros.

Thus, I picked Detroit, they have better pitching.

I always root against the Red Sox but I picked them for the series. They seem like a team of destiny right now. Saw the Peavy interview after the clincher and he raved about their team chemistry. I am sure he feels like he went from hell to heaven this season.

I've thought the kittens were the team to beat for most of the year. That pitching staff in a 7 game series is all but unbeatable. The addition of Peavy for the Red Sox was good, but I think this is the Kittens' year.

I would have gone for "Earth opening up and swallowing entire stadium whole" but meteor will do.

Well so long as it's Boston that takes the hit, Detroit could use a break...

The earth opened up at Candlestick just before a World Series game in 1989, but it didn't keep the A's from winning their most recent World Series title. Unless a meteor triggered the end of American civilization as we know it, or labor issues surfaced, they would find a way to finish play it out, no matter how distasteful the opponents.

No hits allowed by Sanchez through 6 innings, but at 116 pitches, looks like Leyland is calling the bullpen to preserve Detroit's 1-0 lead
