When Showalter came to the mound to talk to Britton before the intentional walk, he accurately predicted the exact turn...

Game 2014.130: Yankees at Tigers

70-59, 2nd place, 1.5 games back, .5 WC games back. Lots of teams to watch these days. I gotta admit, it’s hard to find the motivation to prepare for this series.

Joe Nathan appears to react to booing fans and looks like an idiot

This isn’t Joe Nathan essentially flipping off irrational, booing fans after he pitched a perfect ninth inning; this is Joe Nathan essentially flipping off rightfully booing fans after he escaped yet another ****** ninth inning.
