More Game 1 Pregame




Jim Leyland and hitting coach Don Slaught confer while watching Pudge take his licks in BP. I then chatted a bit with Slaught and he said, "We’re one of eight teams to be here — that’s the only thing that matters." Seems a lot of people around New York have written this series off. So far, two road teams have won the two games today. Will the Tigers be next? By the way, you should have seen how far Chris Shelton hit one in BP — off the facade in the top tier down the left field line.

Here are your starting lineups. Might want to keep the Yankees’ version for posterity, just in case.

    I wish i could be there Mark. I didnt get any post season tickets 😥
    All i’m left with is watching it in my living room, fidgeting while biting my fingernails till they bleed and screaming at my TV. lol
