It was a great series, even if the Tigers’ pitchers set a record of most errors ever in a World Series. Ouch. That truly has to hurt. [Detroit fans: demand an investigation into this. Did they intentionally throw the game? That's the best construction possible here!].
The pitching duels were wonderful. Well, except for the final game where the Tigers’ pitcher fell apart.
The baseball was old-school "small ball" in many cases. The conduct of the players, with one notable exception, was exemplary. It is a shame that Rogers brought disgrace on himself and his team as he did. But overall, a great series.
Kudos to Jim Leyland, manager of the Tigers. He is one class act! Congratulations sir. I’ve never seen a manager be so forthright, honest and handle himself with such aplomb and integrity. Class act! What a refreshing change. Larussa and Leyland-really showing the best of baseball! Thank you gentlemen. Congratulations to the Tigers on a remarkable turn-around in their season. Oh, the joys of First Article gifts.
My bottom line on any world series is that any series the Yankees haven’t bought their way into with their salary advantage, is a good series.
