On to the World Serious for the Tiggers. Yankee killers that they are. Exciting stuff. Congrats are in order but the work ain't done.
The starting pitching has been nothing short of spectacular. Too good to be true but thus far, it's all true. IF it holds up, they're going to be one tough draw for who ever survives the NL. This is EXACTLY the type of powerful, dominant pitching that teased tigger fans through the regular season. The problem in the regular season is/was: consistency. Post season, incredibly consistent. Playing devils advocate, the A's are not the best line-up, as good as they've been. And this was not the Yankees line-up that led the AL this past regular season. The bigger test lies ahead.
The bats have been less productive in the post season. They've gotten it done with some clutch hits but they've also gotten a lot of help along the way with both the A's and Yanks sporting some shotty, at times, defense. You can't expect that this time of year.
Delmon Young is a postseason fiend again. That helps. The roll players are more than pulling their weight. That helps. Hope to see more from Miggy and Prince in the final round. It's a team game, Guess I can't expect the corner pounders to rattle fences every game but they are going to be needed. There is enough talent assembled to carry the next guy. So far, so good.
Stay loose. Have fun. Git er done.
