Detroit reliefer cannot pitch a strike.

So why does manager leave him in.

Loads bases. Gets out of it with only one run. But pitches only one strike the entire inning. Now the next inning, he walks the first batter.

Pull the bum!

Mayo Smith would have pulled him last inning.

6. You forgot this...



Myself, born and raised in Detroit. And boy, we need this one.

I remember 1967 when LBJ called the National Guard into Detroit to put down the riots. We Detroiters couldn't have been more downtrodden. I remember the smell of smoke, which was pervasive throughout the fifth largest city in the country. There were National Guard Jeeps driving past my house with machine guns mounted. But in 1968, the Tigers won the World Series, and the whole city put all the race problems behind them.

Detroit is a dying city right now. It is the first example of this in the USA, especially since Detroit was the Arsenal of Democracy during World War II, and was the the Motor City, before and after that.

I grew up in a city of nearly two million people. Today, there are under 800,000. How many cities in this country of this size have lost more than a million people and over fifty percent of their population? Detroit is a wasteland today but I go to the opera with my twin sister every year.

Detroit needs this. There's things to be saved. They need hope.

9. No, I totally get it. If Detroit were playing ANYONE else, I would be rooting for them

 

But as someone who grew up in San Francisco...

The bastion of acceptance, the entire West Coast of live and let live, the complete rejection of everything that the rape and torture party stands for, sorry, I have to root for San Francisco.

10. Well, it looks like your wishes will come true.

I only hope that the Tigers make a better effort in Detroit. I had to turn off the game last night.

8. Coke is the only one worth a damn in our bullpen during the playoffs.
