! Seems they did not want to win at all. UNREAL!
The Tigers were more aggressive in all aspects of the game specially the pitchers Rogers and Bonderman. WTG!
Congrats again for a job well done!
Appreciate the thanks. We Tigers fans have had an enbelieveable season. I hope that be the end of our run time will allow for people to realize it wasn't how the Yankees lost, but how the Tigers won.
When the Tigers didn't fold in game two and Zumaya came out of the pen and mowed down hitters like they were pop warner kids the Yankees were in shock.....and, I think, a little bit afraid that they had met their match. Look at what the Tigers did to them:
Had Zumaya throwing flames at such velocity that it made Verlander look average. So they beat them with shear power.
Then they follow that with Rogers, who can't throw 90 and had a killer curve going. Now they're baffled.
Then comes Bonderman throwing mid 90s and he brings his nasty slider. End of Series.
The Yankees vaunted hitters were simply over-matched. This is how the Tigers won 95 games this season. Great pitching performances.
