From The Wayne Fontes Experience -
The Tigers can do the world at large a huge favor by taking out the Yankees. If there is one, and only one, bright spot in their backing into the playoffs, is that everyone will be rooting for the Tigers.
From The Detroit Tiger Weblog -
If the Tigers can find a way to take one of the first 2 games I actually believe the Tigers will win this series. This is fully a homer pick and not based on anything resembling solid logic. I’m confident that Kenny Rogers and Jeremy Bonderman can pick up wins against the Yankees 3rd and 4th options. Of course I was confident that the Tigers could beat the Royals and that didn’t mean a whole lot, but right now I’m looking for reasonable doubt.
From the Detroit Tigers Baseball Guide -
The Detroit Tigers find them in the playoffs for the first time since 1987. But they have been stumbling as of late losing their last 5 games, all at home. Their first opponent will be the New York Yankees who are definitely used to playing in October. The Tigers will definitely have their work cut out for them, but this is not an impossible journey, they have proved that they can win all season.
From Tiger Tales -
The Yankees lost to teams that they were supposed to beat in each of the last 4 post-seasons. This year will be no different as I see the Tigers pitching their way to an upset in 5 games. The hitting hero and series MVP will be Carlos Guillen. The top pitcher will be Joel Zumaya.
I only have two thoughts on these findings. One, it’s interesting that some Tigers fans are thinking positive about this series. Two, it’s really hard to find many updated Tigers Blogs out there (compared to the number of Yankees or Red Sox related blogs).
