Detroit up 2-0 and Verlander going game 3. I really can't see them blowing the lead. Just to get the series back to NY, the Yanks have to win at least 2 out of 3 in Detroit. The Yankees for the longest time have counted on come from behind wins. That barely worked against Baltimore, but you can't expect to do that for an entire postseason.
Not saying the Yankees would have won either game, but still:
Here's my beef. The first game I agree that was definitely a game changing call because they would have not only scored but still had the bases loaded. So that I get.
But last night's call in no way shape or form changes the ultimate outcome. The Yankees still wouldn't have scored. And the Tigers still would have won by one. Does it have a psychological effect? Maybe. But the Yankees came back by 4 the game before anyways.
