Yeah, our fans suck.

The Giants played extremely well this offseason. At first I was rooting for them because they weren't the Tigers. Then I started rooting for them because I actually like the team and a lot of their players.

I'm happy to see Detroit lose because they didn't belong there in the first place. They muddled through the regular season and got to the playoffs mainly because the White Sox didn't have enough to get to the finish line. 88 wins is not impressive.

I am not one for this expanded playoffs. Teams should get to the post-season because of a great regular season. I don't like the view that a team can barely make it to the playoffs and then "get hot."

Umm, they do know who their closer was for the last couple of years, right? Tigers fans have absolutely zero reason to dog another team for having a closer who hot-dogs a bit.
That's too funny.

Guess they turned away from the TV while the Human Rain Delay was pitching.

I'm told that the Tigers are going to sign Josh Hamilton this offseason. Put him into the Tigers lineup with Victor Martinez makes the Tigers much stronger next year.

Forget that, 10 days until FAs can start signing.

Love the Hot Stove league. Hopefully Hahn is a little more active than Kenny was the last few seasons.

Also, I gotta love that a bunt helped win the Series. Take that haters!

It looks like the AL dominance is over. The NL has now won the World Series 3 years in a row. Certainly the importance of good pitching over hitting showed this year.

I'm not sure it's significant to anything that the 3rd best team in the NL beat the 7th best team in the AL in a 7-game series with the AL team coming off nearly a week break.

Yes, they'll sign him to a 15 year deal until Hamilton's 46.

Who told you that?

I am guessing the Tigers won't re-sign Delmon Young with Martinez coming back. The Tigers seem to like Garcia and Dirks a lot. I also am guessing they would want to re-sign Sanchez and would be surprised if the Tigers needed to offer Hamilton the inflated contract he and his agent will demand.

When the White Sox had five off days before the 2005 World Series, they didn't complain about the layoff. They also swept the Astros. It did, however, take five games for the Whtie Sox to beat the Angels after three off days heading into the ALCS. I actually read a couple of national columns in 2005 that diminished the 11-1 accomplishment of the White Sox because they had the benefit of long layoffs.

I thought while watching division and league championship series in both leagues that the National League teams were clearly better than the American League teams. Having seen the Yankees play against the Tigers, I believe the third-best team in the National League would have beaten the best team in the American League this year. I also believe the foruth-best team in the National League would have beaten the best team in the American League if they hadn't lost the NLCS after being up three games to one.
