My thoughts on the Tigers 1-0 victory over the Red Sox in Game 1 of the ALCS

Tigers got it right, Sanchez was unpredictable of what he was going to throw. AA threw a lot more fastballs then usual and should be.

I myself have never seen a pither pulled while still with no hits - although the bases loaded situation had me hoping Leyland would pull him. It seemed inevitable. I was scared he mihgt leave him in. He was done. But what he done was great. But when I saw Albequerque coming in my heart sank. But he did great. Then Alveres, and Smiley.

And in the ninth - it was almost a moot point when the no hitter was busted up - because we were only two outs away.

And Cabrera looked a good bit healthier. And Jackson hit a line drive. And fielder hit better.

It all loiked better - like playing at Fenway - some type of magical experience - brought everybody (almost) back to a better place in their heads.

One down - and a bunch more to go.


What is exactly is a "Jack-Hole" anyways?

the Boston hitting gameplan was on display: take the first pitch, build the pitch count, get the starter out early, deliver the knockout blow to the bullpen. should be the same approach in game 2.

what they didn't account for was: Sanchez threw a lot of first pitch strikes, the home plate ump had a generous strike zone, and Tiger bullpen can protect a slim lead.
