The first thing I learned about baseball was good pitching stops good hitting. And good pitching, timely hitting and an outstanding bullpen was what the Detroit Tigers had. Now I hope Oakland kicks the shit out of them and makes Jim Leyland cry. Meanwhile, the Yanks are turning into the Braves of the AL East. Well, I guess I'd rather have lost to the Tigers than to the Mets, if you know what I mean.
Even though I said if the Mets got further than the Yanks in this postseason I would root for the Mets -- I don't think I can do it. I'm trying but just not feeling it. Fuck. The Mets are already up 3-0 in the first. Excuse me while I go stick my head in the oven now.
