I’m sitting here, watching Game 3 of the World Series and I have to think to myself. How did the Tiger’s get this far? I can’t believe how unglued they’ve become since sweeping the A’s. What happened to the tight bullpen? Where are the power hitters that were slugging runs left and right?
I really can’t believe the nearly two week rest has bogged them down so far. I mean, wasn’t the sweep enough to psyche them up enough to want more blood? The Cardinals came into the World Series, barely knocking the Mets out of the running. They played, so-so baseball, hanging on by a thread. Now, it’s bottom of the 8th, 1 out and Pujols is up, Tiger’s are on their fourth pitcher. Speaking of which, Zumaya, WHAT HAPPENED? Man, that kids got an arm, he’s amazing, but throwing to third, when you have a chance for a double play?!?! What the? Maybe I’m spoiled after the Tiger’s amazing shut out the previous week that has me confused and somewhat afraid for the Detroit ball club… Come on Tiger’s, I know you can do it… Let’s send the Cardinals packing.
As I was writing this, The Cards got another run… *Sigh*
Go Tigers, Go! All of Detroit is counting on you!
