DETROIT – The Tigers’ possible American League Championship Series clinching celebration was put on hold for at least 24 hours Wednesday night when Detroit’s game with the New York Yankees was postponed because of threatening weather. The Yankees will still send ace CC Sabathia to the mound Thursday to see if they can start clawing their way out of the 0-3 hole they are in. The Tigers will pitch their scheduled starter, Max Scherzer. Game 4 was scheduled for an 8:07 PM EDT start but never got going due to a large line of bad weather moving through the Detroit area. Light sprinkles came down intermittently but nothing that teams haven’t played through during the regular season. Then around 9:15 p.m. ET, the game was postponed as more threatening weather moved in. The game was called because Major League Baseball wanted to make sure a nine-inning game had a good chance to be completed. The rescheduled game is slotted for what would have been the Game 5 (had it been necessary...

Max Scherzer Wears Mismatched Goggles for Different-Colored Eyes in ALCS Celebration (Photo)

Perhaps you've noticed something a little bit off about Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer's eyes. The big right-hander, who pitched the Tigers to the American League pennant on Thursday afternoon, has heterochromia iridum. That means he has two different colored eyes. So it was only fitting that Scherzer wear a special pair of goggles once the Tigers...

CC: I Didn't Give Them A Chance

From Marc Carig:The moment he released the pitch, a look of disgust swept over the face of CC Sabathia. The desperate Yankees needed something close to perfection from their ace. But he had just made another mistake, one that Miguel Cabrera turned into a two-run homer and a 4-0 lead. Sabathia winced. It was all he could do as the Tigers pounded him in an 8-1 victory that clinched...

HOW SWEEP IT IS: Tigers oust Yankees to move onto the World Series

Without a wimper and without a fight the Yankee Empire as we know it may have fallen for good. Thursday evening the Detroit Tigers completed the four game sweep of the once feared Yankees after an 8-1 victory from Comerica. Park. With their backs against the wall, CC Sabathia was anything but impressive when it mattered going only 3.2 innings allowing 6 runs (5 earned) on 11 hits...

Tigers could benefit from rainout because Yankees don't

The rain that poured onto Comerica Park on Wednesday night, shortly after Game 4 of the American League Championship Series between Detroit and the visiting New York Yankees was postponed by threatening weather, could wind up dampening the Yankees' parade much more than the Tigers'. And manager Joe Girardi might find himself wondering why he didn't gamble and pitch...

Postponement favors Tigers in ALCS

The Detroit Tigers didn't win the American League pennant Wednesday night. But strategically speaking, they won the rainout. When Major League Baseball postponed Game 4 until Thursday, the Tigers benefited in two ways: CC Sabathia will no longer be available to pitch a potential Game 7 for the New York Yankees, and Detroit reliever Phil Coke -- who temporarily ascended to the...

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...

Tigers' rotation has gotten hot at right time

The Detroit Tigers have built a team for the postseason based on the belief that power arms are the foundation for success. So far, so good. The Tigers grabbed a 3-0 lead on the New York Yankees on Tuesday night behind another standout start from ace Justin Verlander and will try to close out the American League Championship Series on Wednesday night behind another power pitcher...
