Man, Mike Illitch looks pretty bad. If he wants to win the World Series, he probably has to win it this year, who knows how much he has left.

Delmon Young has just been called a class act, I have a feeling he doesn't hear that too often.

Is Mike Ilitch seriously ill, or just getting old? It was rather painful to see. Congrats to the Tigers!

It looks like he aged twenty years in ten years.

I think he's probably got some serious health problems, Leyland and Dombrowski appeared to be holding him up.

and that hair is a wig

Reminds me of Bill Davidson the last few years before he passed.

A billion dollars and they can't afford to buy the guy a half-decent rug?

Yeah, I mentioned it a couple months back - this team has the pieces to make a run, they just need to keep it all together. They had the pitching working and they actually did fine with the gloves too, partially because the pitching was so good they didn't have much glovework to do.

But the bats have been sort of quiet. They haven't even gotten the whole thing together yet. If they can keep the pitching on this roll and they can keep not screwing up too bad on defense and they score 5 or 6 runs a game, they'll take it.

And as far as Leyland, let's face it - when your starters are throwing like this you don't need to do anything other than stay out of their way. Leyland made that mistake in game 1 and seemed to get the message and stayed out of the way the rest of the series. If he can avoid any more of those huge Leylandesque brain farts, I will be very happy.

Looking like a 2006 rematch. This time the Tigers roster is in their prime and JV isnt playing his first full season.

Me and a buddy of mine are gonna drive down to St.Louis and hopefully catch game two at Busch stadium if the Cardinals do end up moving on to the WS.

No chance in hell are we driving to San Fran.

The Cards do scare me though. They are just soooooooooo clutch.

The Cards are (and have been), but for once I think the Tigers are too. There's something about this team that gives me confidence. So far they've done everything they've needed to do at the right time. For example, they easily could have wilted in Game 1 of the ALCS after that horrific ninth but didn't. They shoved some resolve and now we're on our way to the WS.

Have fun in St. Louis, if that's who we end up playing. I'd be interested to know what the atmosphere is like in their park.

Impressive sweep by the Tigers, especially the lights-out back-to-back starts by Verlander and Scherzer. But my favorite moment of the series by a mile was right after Fielder caught the game-ending pop-up and Infante ran over to celebrate with him... and for half a second you can see the terror on Omar's face when it looks like Prince might jump into his arms instead of the other way around. That was fantastic!!

I hope the Cards-Giants series stretches to seven games. and each game goes 18 innings. And one of them is rained out and rescheduled for Tuesday.

It would be very beneficial strategically for that series to go 7, at least from the Tigers' perspective. Not really because they'd be worn out because both teams have deep bullpens and they'd have a day off anyway.

Game 7 would burn both Matt Cain and Kyle Lohse probably until game 3 of the WS. Whichever team that survives would be without their ace in the opening homestand.

The Cards would run out some combination of Wainright, Carpenter, and maybe Westbrook in games 1-2. The Giants would run out Bumgarner and either Zito or Lincecum. Most of those guys are fully capable of shutting the Tigers down if they're on, but the odds are a lot better that the Tigers at least split against those guys than against Cain or Lohse.

Good little football fill-in game in between the LCS and WS. Good guys get the PB trophy back. Go Blue!

I know there are a lot of Leyland warm and fuzzies right now, but let's keep in mind it's not too late for him to ruin this team's great run by being epically stupid:

Sadly, I'm afraid he IS going to be a big part of the World Series - and helping deliver it to the NL team.

Classic Leyland overthink - they did a great job when they benched Valverde, and instead of staying with what works, it sounds like he's going to go back to letting Valverde throw gasoline on the 9th inning when they've got a lead.

This is really upsetting me...
