    Here's what we already knew:  The Tigers have three outstanding pitchers -when they're on.  Last night Sanchez brought his A++ game and if Scherzer does it today it could be another long evening.  By the same token, if Buch brings his A++ game it could be a long evening for the Tigers.

    What will happen will happen, but I refuse to get down on the Red Sox hitters just because they ran up against a superior pitcher last night.  Nobody would have hit Sanchez with the stuff he brought.  And if the same thing happens tonight I'll be saying the same thing tomorrow.  This team can hit, it's just that the old axiom is true that good pitching beats good hitting. 

    [/QUOTE]


    if the same thing happens game three and four you'll be saying the same thing.

    [/QUOTE]
    That could very well be, if it's true. 

    The Tigers have an excellent pitching staff when everyone brings their A+ game as Sanchez did last night.

    Sanchez has the best ERA of any regular starter in the AL.

    Scherzer is almost a lock for the Cy Young award.

    And Verlander is... Verlander.

    As little as we like to admit it, the Detroit staff could throttle the Red Sox offense completely if the three of them bring their A+ game.  And if that happens it'll say more about the Detroit pitching staff than it will about the Red Sox hitters.

    If that shoe were on the other foot and the Red Sox pitchers gave up no earned runs through three ALDS games would you say it was because the Red Sox pitchers are superior, or would you say it's because the Tigers just plain can't hit?

    you people should listen to me because i know the game and understand matchups...listening to you folks drone on about how Sanchez is the same as Dempster only drives the point home that some of you are insane

    you put the Tiger lineup in Fenway for 81 games and their 3-6 guys break all sorts of records

    The problem is not Ortiz and Napoli vs Miggy and Fielder. The problem for us in this series is the excellent top three SP on the Detroit Tigers vs our good top three. 

    Actually, that was a very good way to phrase it.  I'll give you a +1 on this one Pumpsie.  You see two AS's atop a rotation often enough, but three is a very tough number to overcome.

    My guess is that we played them.  We didn't really need him with Youk at 1st.  And the NYY were going to sign him almost no matter what happened.

    I'll take Papi batting 4th over Prince as well.

    Our line-up is about balance, and without the bottom of our order getting on base to set up Papi, we lose. Without Salty's big hit, we may have lost.

    The only probably with that stunning statistical analysis is that we scored waaaaaaay more runs on the road than the Tigers did.  Care to explain that one?

           Team A   Team B

    #3     1.012     .780

    #4     .789       .927

    #5     .781       .820

    #6     .753       .811

    I don't think anyone in the world thinks that Miggy isn't a beast.  The idea that their other guys are better than ours is not borne out by the data.  Even over the entire range, it is still almost identical.
