    That's what good teams do, that have the Mental toughness. They grind out tough wins.

    Pitching and defense has a lot to do with winning, also. You'd know that if you watched the games.

    Lets not get to smart here..... Heck, thats why it hurt to trade IGGY as I always said that he was good for the ERA/mind set of the pitching staff !! What a catch/play last night by IGGY on PAPI !!!!  Thats baseball !!

    "What a catch/play last night by IGGY on PAPI !!!!  Thats baseball !!"

    Great catch, sure. He also hit the fly ball that ended the game for his team.

    "Re: To be 3-2 with such a belo average production at the plate.........."

    Or, to put it another way, "to be 3-2 against the best pitching staff in the American league, against a team with a deeper hitting lineup than us - incredible!" 

    The Tigers are better on paper everywhere but bullpen. 

    And yet we are winning - so far! I'd say enjoy the ride, and be glad we have had enough clutch runs to advance. 

    What a ride!!!

    Some clown said pitching is not as important as having a big bat like Fielder protecting your best hitter. He also said Middlebrooks was the key to us advancing to the playoffs.

    The clown is BILL's best bud.

    If Papi goes 3 for 4 will you go away again?

    This game is called baseball.  As a rule in this game of baseball, good pitching beats good hitting.  Not always, but, more often than not, that is how this game works.  It follows that the best pitching then will be found in this part of baseball called the playoffs.  And, the further you get in these playoffs, it follows that the very best pitching will be present.  The Detroit Tigers are the American League Gold Standard because of their vaunted pitching staff.  So, they have beaten the vaunted Sox offense, because of the aforementioned axiom.  However, what most havent noticed this year is that the Boston Red Sox had themost wins in the league because they actually have even better pitching than the Tigers, and that is what they have showed in this series, and that is why they are up 3-2.  Not remarkable.  But definitely gritty.  And totally bad-a$$.  Oh, and if you worship at the shrine of Verlander and Sherzer, and guffaw at the notion that the Sox pitching is better, I have two words for you:  bull pen.

    Last year the same thing was said about them entering the World Series and the Giants swept them.

    Good playoff performances are required as seasonal stats mean nothing and Cabrera has choked in a couple of situations and Fielder has been even worse. But we don't want them to pick up their games in Fenway. Let them wait until next season to achieve great stats. I was down on Napoli when he had as many strikeouts as at bats and he has won 2 games for us and his defense is exceptional.  And you are correct...our bullpen is better than theirs and our athletes have been more clutch.
