Ask texas if we can do it.


Texas doesnt have Verlander

Not saying it cant happen. Det bullpen is real dicey at best.


There is no chance Detroit thinks ahead. Oakland is a great team. They may be composed of a lot of guys that nobody knows but they have faith that they can win 3 straight. That is why they are so successful, they don't know they aren't supposed to win:)

Looking to game 3, I feel pretty good about Sanchez. He has been pitching fairly well of late with one hiccup of coming against Oakland when he was tagged for 5 earned runs. He was cruising along in that game then BAM!

On the other side is Brett Anderson. He has only pitched 35 innings this year due to injury. His last start was against Detroit and he only lasted 2.1 innings when he left with a strained oblique. He gave up 3 earned runs.

Anderson is a very good pitcher when healthy. If he can return to his pre-injury form, he can shut down the Tigers.

I like Tigers odd.

Oakland A's at home

Batting avg- 3rd to last in AL
Runs- 5th from last in AL


The advantage they have at home is pitching but that will help Detroit pitching too

In 4 games at Oak Cabrera did not homer but he hit .500. Fielder didnt get a hit in 4 games there.


Game 3 starter Sanchez hasnt pitched their in past 3 years

Game 4 starter Fister:

1 game this year. 1 win. 2.84 ERA

Game 5 starter Verlander:

1 game this year. 1 win. 1.29 ERA

More simply....the pressure of 3 straight elimination games could be alot for any team to overcome. Much less a team with a ton of rookies and otherwise inexperienced players.

But I have watched the Tigers more than enough to know they are more than capable of choking. And OAK is a good team. I would give OAK about a 20% shot at overcoming the odds. Which is not terribly bad, but certainly not enough to understand the statement "we got this".

I just want to know if Billy Beane plans to attend or will he be working out in the clubhouse gym.

eh, im just being optimistic right now. We still have hope, especially being at home(funny that we hit more HR's at home than on the road). Its going to be tough but we're wtill in this. The only thing that really worries me right now is Verlander....he and Weaver have owned us so much. Can't wait until tuesday, haven't been to a playoff game in so long

Fair enough. Hope you have a blast at the game. Never been to a playoff game personally. But my uncle was sitting near where Gibby's HR landed in the '84 WS. I can't imagine having been there. We were watching on TV and it was amazing.

I can't wait for the old 2-2-1 playoff format to be back. This 2-3 format makes no sense at all. As a reward for having the better record the A's start the series on the road? Their fans get to watch them play maybe only in one home game? Thanks Major League Baseball.
