Quoting Falcon84 (Thread starter): The Tigers are up 3-0, after shutting out the A's, 3-0 today in chilly D-Town.
I fine it's hard to believe that the series in 3-0. Games 1 and 3 both teams had excellent pitched games, but the Tigers had better pitching and pitching is what wins games at this time of year. I would say the series is over, but the Tigers did lose three in a row at the end of the season to the Royals, so I suppose anything is still possible, but go Tigers. On another note if the Tigers and Mets make the World Series it could be a very cold one, (Cleveland 1997) for the fans to endure.
A Tigers game was a good way to blow off a reserve day when I knew I wouldn't be grabbed by scheduling. Now I won't be able to get a ticket next season. Comerica Park was fun while they sucked. Sitting reserve in Detroit will be really boring next year. No where to go.
Quoting Duff44 (Reply 1): If you guys take out my two most hated teams (New York and Oakland) I might just have to buy a Tigers hat....
You want one of mine? Lol. You're supposed to buy the hat of the shittiest team in baseball, so when they start winning you don't like a bandwagon fan.

They had the bes record in the league for a while until they hit a slump in mid season. Looks like they've shown they can go to the big dance.
Look, David, there's absolutely nothing wrong with rooting for a team that has been down and out since the mid-80s. It's not a bandwagon thang. It's respect for baseball and for a team that deserves it. I'm rooting for the Tigers, but I'm not on the bandwagon, I'm just happy to see baseball have a new legion of fans who can actually root for a winner. When one's team is out of it, your post suggests we cannot root for another to fare well. That's not at all fair.
