    I don't expect the Tigers bats to stay quiet, and I'm sure we'll see some good play once they get home. I am hoping that Cain is a bit sharper than he has been and that Vogelsong continues his awesomeness. :)

    Hey Gang!! Sorry I haven't been around much, but a lot has been going on around here the last week, w/Dad ending up in the hospital a week ago tonight. Thankfully he got out on Wednesday and doing okay, but we'll see what we find out tomorrow when he heads off for Dialysis. Anyway...

    Before anything else...Congratulations to the Giants on winning what will go down as a Classic NLCS!! Wow!!

    Now...The World Series.

    Talk about the extremes in games. Game One, a blowout. Game Two, a pitchers duel. Both? Incredably entertaining and fun to watch. :D

    Sandoval and his three Homer Game One was just unreal!! Mom was saying yesterday she wouldn't be shocked if all of the Panda hats in San Fran were not only sold out, but also any Halloween Panda Bear patterns and black and white material too. :D

    Both games were just so incredible. Can't wait to see what Game Three gives us.

    Inbetween Skate Canada coverage of course. ;) :D

    :blah: A zillion a year forthe big bats and they can't get a friggin hit against pitchers they should be blowing away.

    I'd rather they'd never got here than to be embarassed in the World Series once again.

    Yeah. At least I'm apparently not going to have to worry about game 5 conflicting with the Broncos on Monday Night Football. :wall:

    I can't believe how much this sucks and I've only been a fan for two weeks. {{{long-time Tigers fans}}}

    I wouldn't mind giving Detroit a game or two just so I can see more Buster Posey in action... squatting... :grope:

    I guess Detroit can take some comfort in that they kept the evil Yankees out of the World Series, but......it would be nice to see them score at least one run before the Series ends :(

    While I agree they should've blown away Zito, the others are amazing. Vogelsong, Bumgarner and Lincecum are unhittable when they are on their game. And Romo? That guy is amazing. Cain, as well, though he's struggled a bit lately.

    I think Buster Posey is very cute, but is too baby-faced to be :grope: Awesome catcher, though. :)

    Praying for a rain out tonight. I think it's Detroit's only hope. :(

    At least in the football post season, the maulings only lasts for three hours.

    Matt Cain is kind of :scream: looking but he does support gay marriage which makes him :grope: in my book.

    Meanwhile, the name "Angel Pagan" is sort of a living contradiction if you think about it, isn't it? :EVILLE:

    I literally turned it on in time for the Giants home run. Sorry Tigers fans. :( I'm happy for either team but it'd be sad to see them swept.

    All tied up again! I knew the Detroit bats wouldn't stay quiet.

    My stomach hurts. :p
