Default There is no joy in Mudville tonight....

My beloved Detroit Tigers got swept by the San Francisco Giants in 4 games of the World Series.

Despite the best hitters and pitchers (on paper) in the leagues, we really were out-played (o.k., out-managed). Not to mention a Triple Crown winner in Cabrera.

Congrats to Giants fans as I lick my wounds.

Only thing worse is that there is no Red Wing hockey this year!

Life is cruel -what can I do but go on a cruise next Saturday? That should cure it!

belgique - I hope you can console yourself with the cruise.

Being a Brewers fan, I can say that I am glad that Prince and the Tigers lost - that is what he gets for leaving the team that believed in him and made it possible to become the player he has become and leave us behind for "the money."

Lisa,

I'm not that big a baseball fan but I really wanted Detroit to win the World Series. That being said, I was happily stunned when they even made it into the Series. I therefore commisserate with your dejection.

I'm a National League fan.. in that I prefer National League style baseball.

However, I'd have never bet San Fran would take Detroit, and certainly not in a 4 game sweep.

My condolences to Tiger fans.

Default Why did Verlander not pitch??

OK

I don't fully understand Baseball and sorry I was pleased the Giants won - I love underdogs winning

Please explain to me why the Tigers did not use Verlander as their starting pitcher last night??

I do understand a bit about rotations but surely you don't leave your best player out of the game - probably a silly question I know

Annie - it could be that he just did not have enough rests between starts for him to be able to pitch. He probably could have started but he would not have had enough rest since his last start to be effective. And, if the Tigers had won that game, the Verlander would probably not have been available to pitch the rest of the series.

Thanks Lisa

I do understand what you are saying - but they rest the best player and lose the series. As I understand it, he did not have to pitch the full 9 innings.

I bet Verlander feels very frustrated.

Thanks

Annie

On the bright side I'm pretty happy, all my co-workers are pretty happy and my hubby was excited. Probably just because we live in California and my hubby and I grew up in the bay area. Go GIANTS. Since we don't have any rain in California, there may not be joy in mud ville, but there's a party goin' on in the Sunshine state.

Hi Kat

I am a foreigner and I'm pretty happy too - I love it when the underdog wins
