World Series, Game Four

There is no joy in Motown; the mighty Tigers have so far been pawing at the Giants’ pitches as though they were shot from cannon rather than thrown by mortal beings. They’re 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position for the Series, which is bad enough; what’s worse is that they’ve played three games and only had 11 runners in scoring position.

They face elimination today. It’s Max Scherzer v. Matt Cain in Comerica Park at 8:00PM Eastern on Fox.

    Thirty innings before I had anything to cheer about. C’mon Tigers, build on it.

      Anyone have a recommendation as regards the best Clemente bio?

        Seems like there was discussion of this at DT a while back. Maybe do a search?

        David Maraniss’s book Clemente was very good.

          Thanks Link.

      Certainly a more notable achievement than 25 PED-fueled rings.

    In the year of the not-so-good, the horrible has happened.

      Well said

      In the year of mostly undetectable PEDs, the otherwise impossible has happened.

    Congratulations to the Giants, the National League, and the team that moved west with the Dodgers.

      Didn’t Stoneman want to move elsewhere, but O’Malley convinced him to move to SF?

        There are leaders and there are followers–Dodgers have always been leaders, just not in the World Series for what seems like forever.
