Oh it wasn't Verlander's prettiest outing.
It wasn't one to send to Cooperstown.
But I am THRILLED that pitch counts were thrown into the toilet.
Pitch counts? If the Tigers lost today EVERY pitcher would have a lot of rest. So have Verlander throw until his arm falls off.
So back to Texas the series goes. I am rooting for the Tigers but what I am REALLY rooting for is 7 games.
I want a 7th game to go into extras.
And in order for that to happen, there needs to be a Detroit victory in Game 6.
So come on, people!
Unless you are from Texas or have a friend on the Rangers, root hard for the Tigers. A 7th game for the ALCS might wake a few people up and realize that the REAL baseball news isn't Jon Lester eating chicken.
It's the Rangers and the Tigers... one game away from being a classic.
