Found October 19, 2012 on Busted Coverage:
Obviously the Yankees choked last night. With CC Sabathia on the mound the offense laid a complete egg (again) en route to an 8-1 loss. Tigers fans went nuts. The early game led to early drinking and a long night of partying. Then Mitt Romney stepped in. He set Twitter on fire with one simple tweet: Yes, this is the same man who wrote an op-ed for the New York Times called “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt”. Obviously there was more to his article than just “let Detroit go bankrupt”, but try telling that to Tigers fans. They went nuts on Mitt and in many different ways. Some nerdy white guys tried to be all political, but of course there was a fair amount of NSFW nonsense thrown around too. Our favorite has to be @_LoyaltyAlways dropping some knowledge: “hoe ass mitt romney trying to shoutout the tigers ***** we already know you don’t f*** with detroit.. hoe ass pumpfaker.“ Filed under: Baseball, MLB

CC: I Didn't Give Them A Chance

Yankees Injury News: C.C. Sabathia Will Have Elbow Checked Out

Cabrera, Peralta may have ended the Yankees' season

With CC Sabathia and the Yankees trailing 2-0 in the fourth inning, and fading fast, Sabathia needed to get out of the inning quickly. After a single by Omar Infante, AL Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera stepped in and hit a monstrous homer to left field to double the Tigers lead to 4-0. The Tigers weren't done after Cabrera's homer, though. Sabathia struck out...

Postponement favors Tigers in ALCS

Thoughts From A Dejected Yankee Fan

This postseason has been interesting to say the least. About two weeks ago, I would have told you that the Yankees were going to sweep the Orioles in the ALDS. Their ace was pitching Game 1; the winningest pitcher in postseason history was going in Game 2, followed by their most consistent pitcher all season in Game 3. As we now know, the Yankees-Orioles series wasn’t that easy...
