Wash didn't make your hitters stop hitting over the last quarter of the season. You had decent pitching down the stretch but your hitters couldn't get on base or knock in runs. Wash took you to back to back world series. You don't drop a manager who took you to your first two world series because Hamilton and the others forgot how to make contact with the ball.

Deuce no one is negging you.

Let's have some class. Texas had their chances (3years) and now it's OVER. Ahahaha

Moving on, Verlander is on the mound tomorrow and im looking forward to seeing them broken hearts in Oakland and bats for that matter. It was only couple of weeks ago when he violated that lineup for 3hours. Noway Oakland is getting a single run Verlander dominates oak bats better than anyone in the league. Hopefully it won't get to ugly because this A's fairy tale has been great for the league and we don't wanna see verlander 14k'em but it could happen and poor ol beane and that rag-tag bunch of rejects we'll be an after thought once again.

Don't count out the A's and our pitching staff as well. We've overcome the odds time and again this season.

Parker has been great in Sept and i think he can keep it up, also he isn't really the type to give up the long ball but we'll see how it all plays out tomorrow. The A's are really good at working the count I believe they lead the league in fouling off pitches. So if they can work Verlander's pitch count high i think they can get into the BP and score a few runs. Overall i'm expecting a low scoring game.

3-2 A's

And then he'll keep on pitching.

Verlander should be an easy win today for the Tigers. Tomorrow with Fister? Maybe. Sanchez in game three? that could be a real easy win for the A's. Given the way the A's strike out a lot, and the fact that Verlander has been pretty unbeatable at home for his career, and no rain today I think the Tigers win comfortably. The A's drawing the Tigers probably hurt their chances to win it all.

Dear Rangers fans,

Since Josh Hamilton is pretty much gone, would you trade Andrus for Ellsbury?

Thanks,
99% of Red Sox fans.

It's ****ing retarded that the two top seeds with "home field advantage" can get eliminated having only played one home game.

The one game wild card is just a joke. It needs to be 3 games, each team gets a home game.

The Tigers are easily the worst AL team in the playoffs, 88 wins in a sorry division. I'd give them better chances if it weren't for the fact that they can't catch a ball to save their lives.

Detroit is better than Baltimore. Detroit under-performed this year and really only got in thanks to the pathetic division but they might be the most dangerous team in a short series due to their starting pitching.

The Tigers dominated Sept thanks to some killer starts from Verlander, Fister and Sanchez (not the silly Cabrera "took them on his back" narrative). Plus Scherzer finally had the breakout season everyone was waiting on.
