    Tigers 2, Cardinals 7 Tigers 3, Cardinals 1 You win one, You lose one…

    Posted by Christine E. at 12:34 pm in General No Comments

    I was kind of hoping that the Tigers would sweep the Cardinals and be done with it (Although my prediction is Tigers in 6…)but, unfortunately, they crashed and burned in Game 1…

    Some very random thoughts:

    Everyone and their brother is predicting the Tigers in some way, shape, or form…But it appears that very few people have been right in their predictions this season–hopefully that trend will not continue…

    I have been hearing/reading all of the comparisons of Albert “I’m looking for this pitch” Pujols(Doesn’t it sound like “I’m looking for this bitch?”–If you Don’t have Direct TV, its a commercial they ran a couple of years ago with Prince Albert-in-a-can and Johnny Damon, pre Skeezy Bastard) and Barry Bonds–I can definitely see it–The bad attitude, the surliness…In 2002, when the Giants lost the World Series to Anaheim, the biggest reason I did not root for the Giants? Barry Bonds…I think he is a punk, and has a LOUSY attitude–and this was before the whole steroid asterisk cheating thing…

    What about Kenny Rogers and his 23 scoreless innings in the Postseason, including the 8 last night? He is also the oldest starting pitcher to WIN a World Series game, turning 42 in November…Don’t particularly like him either, but at least he seems to be back on the path, since he had that altercation with the cameramen…

    The man who currently holds the record for the most scoreless innings in a postseason? Northeastern PA native Christy Mathewson, who threw 27 in 1905…he grew up about 45 minutes from here, in Factoryville, PA…

    Remember Nelson de la Rosa, the smallest actor in the world at 2′ 4″, who was friends with Pedro and was considered by some a good luck charm for the Sox during the 2004 postseason? He died Sunday at a Rhode Island hospital, he was 38. The cause is unknown… I always thought is was in horribly bad taste to tout him as a good luck charm–he was a MAN, not a toy…Godspeed Nelson…

    Can I Just tell you how much I am jonesing for a Red Sox Game??? How LONG until spring training??? UGH…

    Tuesday: Tigers vs the Cardinals, in St Louis for 3…8:33pm
