Yeah, I agree Steve. I think the NL has a great shot.

Sounds like a lot of bitterness here. The Tigers had the best pitching coming into the postseason and are showing why.
Also, the pitching AFTER Verlander is very good. Doug Fister is very good, Max Scherzer is very good, and so is Anibal Sanchez. (Granted the Yankees offense is well....very bad right now), and you can't get 'destroyed' if the other team isn't scoring much.

Be honest gladdy how good had the yankees pitching been? Kuroda pitched a gem barring the 2 unearned runs for the mised call.The yankee bats are silent but the yankee pitching has kept the tigers at bay

They have for too long just filled up their roster with players who on paper look good but they never show up when they need to. They are mostly a bunch of guys who aren't leaders but they are stay behind and pounce when the situation greatly favors them and then they quickly disappear when the going gets tough. The 2009 team had Damon, Posada, and Matusi all of whom could still probably bat better than this sorry bunch right now.
But just keep filling the team with guys who have horrid histories in the post season and expect some miracle to happen. Guess what it won't.

Face it the Yankees hitting sucked against Baltimore also,no bitterness I'm just saying how I feel,if the Yankees had been lighting it up trust me I'd give Detroit all the credit in the world,but they got to face a team that was in a collective slump

I hate to say it but the Cardinals or giants will eat either of the 2 al teams alive.The Yanks need to let Nunez and Dickerson and Gardner who was hurt most of the year play every day.Manny Buenlous isout for a year but will be back for pitching.It is time to let some youth in a drop dead weight like A fraud and swisher.

However, the Tigers have 4 great/very good pitchers in their rotation, and (despite the slump) good pitching shuts down good hitting. Always has, always will.
This is the same staff that (besides Jose Valverde) shut down the Oakland A's, who had been on fire as the regular season came to an end. It's not a fluke, or just the fact the Yankees have bad postseason hitters, Verlander, Scherzer, Fister and Sanchez are just that good.
