      Delmon didn't look very comfortable standing there in the locker room.

        He's likely pretty hurt if a came out of a playoff game.

          Hopefully not. In that situation, I would have wanted him coming out if he was anything less than 100%. Not the situation to try and play through it and hope a ball doesn't come your way, or lob in a big throw. Especially since, sad as it is, Raburn is actually an improvement on defense over Delmon.

            Absolutely agree about the hurt part, but Young is better then Rayburn. I hope he is OK, since the Rangers are a better team than the Yankees.

                Terrific win for Detroit. I'll take crying Leyland over crying and praying Yank fans. Oh, and who wouldn't mind slapping the TBS announcers for gushing all over the Yanks? It almost sounded like they were hoping for a dramatic miracle finish. Screw them and screw A-rod- we beat the best team in the A.L. regular season and not ONE eastern division team is left standing.

                  I'm still trying to figure out why brining in Chocolate Cake for his first ever relif appearence was a "great" idea, but when Leyland brought in Scherzer they questioned it because it was his first bullpen appearence since 2008. Listened to half the series on mute, it was very good for the blood pressure.

                    Not to mention the fact that they kept bringing up Papa Grande's prefect save record like they were trying to jinx him with it. How about they not play favorites and just call the game??

                        I was disgusted with that as well. Even while the Yanks were sucking their way through the last 2 innings (the Tigers are 80-0 with a lead after 7) they were talking in hushed tones about the Yanks "devastating lineup" and spouting crap like "they're going to take the lead any second now with the tying run on." It makes me all the more happy to end their season.

                          So, that's how it works. All makes sense now

                            Young has a better, more accurate arm, but after watching him near-daily for the better part of three years, I still have a panic attack any time the ball is hit to right field with Delmon back there.

                            I actually like the way Detroit matches up with Texas. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like Detroit has put up some huge offensive numbers against them, especially at home, in recent years.

                            I didn't think the announcing was that terrible. If you're going to say that every time they said the Yankees were good was gushing and every time they said the Tigers were good was a jinx, don't you think you're maybe searching for a bias? Ron Darling's familiarity with the Yankees was probably ten times what it was for the Tigers, but I actually thought John Smoltz was pretty good on color.

                              Agreed. In Game 2, he said "You have to careful with the first pitch to Young," and he hit it out. Dumb luck, sure, but it made him look good.

                              • I feel the same way whenever a ball is hit to Rayburn. I am sure it is selective memory, but it feels like Rayburn has made many more defensive f ups than Young.

                                I agree that it felt like the announcer was throwing out every possible stat on the Tigers success in the hope that the Yanks came back.

                                As for the Rangers, I see that the Tigers have dominated the season series, with Ugondo being the only starter win a win (3)...I expect he will become a starter for this series.

                                So, any word on Young?
