The threat of Fielder has been getting hittable pitches for Miggy. That's worth something. It would be nice if he launched one though, especially with all these at bats with men on base.

I'm not saying we didn't need a viable threat behind Cabrera, signing him was a totally understandable and legit move, I'm saying that you aren't paying him to be a decoy. Fielder needs to come through for the Tigers to have a chance to win a championship.

Hey Justin, Leyland said he was going to use Valverde tonight if necessary.

THROW STRIKES AND FINISH THIS GAME.

Verlander is getting worked now, he doesn't have the stuff anymore to ward off these foul off marathons. Need to go to the bullpen or else this may well get out of hand.

What an amazing game. Crowd was incredible. JV was JV. Leyland should have let him go all nine. Phil Coke was channeling his inner Jose Valverde tonight.

Of Coke gets another save with no earned runs, he deserves the ALCS MvP.

A 0.94 ERA for those counting at home.

And in the ALCS, Tigers pitching as a whole, minus Valverde, has allowed what? 1 ER in 29 innings? Pretty impressive, even considering how impotent Yankees hitting has been.

First ball in play of the game and the Tigers commit an error.

Is Delmon Young the unanimous ALCS MVP?

Garcia looks legit. Can't wait to see how he fully develops.

I think so. It's crazy to think that there's a good chance he's on his way out of town if the Tigers don't reach the postseason, but now he's probably going to get a new contract based on his postseason alone for the second straight year.

For 7 mil we got almost 20HR and nearly 80RBI. He's well worth the money not even considering his ALDS and ALCS.

he's a postseason beast but for the other 162 games he's a blackhole in the field and a barely above replacement level player at the plate. Plug VMart into that spot and our offense was probably far more consistent.

DY has been huge in this series, but we'll need the money from his deal to re-up some guys and to make room for an ever day corner outfielder.

Valverde will pitch the ninth if the Tigers maintain their six run lead.
