Actual O.G. Tigers Logo

The Official Rules of Major League Baseball, Rule 5.09(a):
The ball becomes dead and runners advance one base, or return to their bases, without liability to be put out, when --
(a) A pitched ball touches a batter, or his clothing, while in his legal batting position; runners, if forced, advance;
Would it have been a cheap hit by pitch? Yes. Was Inge's jersey as billowy as the undulating rolls of fat that make up Oprah's thighs? Yes. But without the rule of law then it's all just gussied up "Running Bases" isn't it?

Why am I so worked up about le tigres? Well, as a fervent citizen of the A.M.F.S.B.T.M.F.Y. Nation (Any Motherfuckin Squadron But The Motherfuckin Yanks), I felt that the Tigers represented the bigger threat in the first round than the perennial-pinstripe-punching-bag- Twinkies. Fuck. Yanks-Rocks. Yanks in two. Fuck.

Props to Chris Creamer's for the source logos and to the MLB Network for the highlight.

The Tigers probably had a better chance of beating the Yankees, but not by much. Both teams stink.

Could tonight's Sabathia-Duensing matchup be the most lopsided game in playoff history? Sportsbook hasn't set a line yet.
