Found October 11, 2013 on With Leather:
Last night, the high-powered, higher-priced Detroit Tigers, led by Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder, defeated the plucky, Moneyballin’ Oakland Athletics, led by Yosemite Carpool and other people, 3-0 after Justin Verlander pitched 8 beautiful innings to stymie the A’s for just 2 hits. Obviously, there wasn’t much inside of Verlander’s brain last night other than, “MUST. KILL. MODESTLY. BUDGETED. TEAM.” And that showed when the two A’s fan above tried to intimidate Verlander into throwing a horrible game by holding up giant cutout heads of Kate Upton. Verlander, of course, had a brief relationship with Upton, and I assume it ended when she told him, “Look, you’re a great wealthy athlete and all, but you’re just not the Internet sports humor blogger that I need in my life.” But why on Buddha’s brownish, polluted Earth would this have affected his pitching?

The right-handed pitcher is set to start the final game of the ALDS against Oakland rookie, Sonny Gray. This seems like a last-ditch effort to psyche-out Verlander, who has a 0.41 ERA, 0.73 WHIP...

Red Sox vs. Tigers/Athletics Who do we want to play?

Ryan MacLeod Contributing Writer One of the best things about the Red Sox finishing off the Tampa Bay Rays in 4 games is the fact that the team now gets to sit back and watch the Oakland Athletics and Detroit Tigers battle it out in a do or die game 5 tonight in Oakland. With their ticket already punched to the ALCS there is 2 questions that remain, who will they be playing and...

A’s ALDS debrief

decided to wait a day later to rehash the dumpster fire that was the ALDS between the A’s and Tigers. If I wrote anything last night there would have been a lot of swearing (more than usual), and irrational and childish gobbledygook that I would have later regretted, like calling Justin Verlander a creepy 5 o’clock shadow-having butthead (I would have meant that with all due...
