As we approach game 6 of the ALCS, the play of Detroit first basemen Miguel Cabrera has not been questioned and many believe it shouldn’t be.
“Hopefully we can have him ready for the game back in Boston,” Leyland said. “Whether we’re going to have that or not, I don’t really know.”
Avila said twisting his knee made an old injury flare up, but he seemed to expect to play Saturday in Game 6.
Jhonny Peralta will likely never again be the Detroit Tigers everyday shortstop, and this astounding play by 23-year-old Jose Iglesias is one of a growing list of reasons why.
As the Detroit Tigers are on the brink of elimination from the ALCS, their fans are trying to keep the hope alive.
Miguel Cabrera hobbled through a stop sign, gently colliding with the catcher for an easy out at home.
Sometime during the remainder of the ALCS, Tigers fans will think or say, at least to themselves “God I wish we had QB back.”
Jim Leyland changing his lineup before game four appeased a lot of Tiger’s fans.
“We, as fans, got the change that we’ve been asking for the entire series,” Valenti said Thursday. “We got seven run from them because of it. It worked.”
For those selling Detroit Tigers gear, business has been brisk.
