It's awful when your big guns turn out to be duds.
In the 1st, you thought the Tigers might get to Ryan Vogelsong early.
But Prince Fielder GIDPd with guys on 1st and 2nd.
Then Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera pooped out with the bases loaded in the 5th.
And Tiger starter Anibal Sanchez just had a bad inning in the 2nd, threw I think over 40 pitches, and gave up the two runs.
The rest of this game was spent listening to Drone and Babble (that would be McCarver and Buck).
Because the crowd was pretty quiet.
Sounded like the entire crowd at Comerica - reminded me of '08 at Wrigley.
Now if you look at the WS schedule, the last three games say "if necessary".
What else is going on today?
You know what?
I can't stand this Bears v Panthers game.
It's opposite team day - the Bears have one loss and the Panthers have one win.
The Bears should be up so big they should be able to take out Cutler and Forte out for the second half, right?
Because they should score easily and with Cam Newton gone all goofy, the Bears D should have no problems.
That's why I hate these games.
I'd so much rather they be playing the Vikings or Detroit.
Games that matter more.
Come on Lovie, make 'em pay attention.
Lastly, I heard Ditka talking on the radio yesterday and he's just such a treasure.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft said London should have their own football team, and they asked Ditka what he thought.
And to put it mildly, I guess you could say old Mike thinks it's an American sport that ought to be played on American soil.
