Over the Cliff

I can’t figure out what was more awesome this afternoon…

Cliff Lee throwing a complete game in his first ever playoff start.

Cliff Lee getting a base hit in his first ever playoff start.

Cliff Lee getting a stolen base in his first ever playoff start.

Or that he did all of it wearing the bad ass blue hat uniforms.

Either way, a good start for the defending champs

Strange scenario that will never happen but fun to think about

OK, let’s say the Twins win the Division and face the Yankees in the playoffs.

That would mean the Twins would start Carl Pavano against New York. 
How awesome would it be if Pavano stops the Yankees?
It won’t happen, but isn’t that worth asking a genie for?
Maybe the Yankees would offer him a 4 year contract afterwards.

This has been fun… but let’s go Tigers

As a person who is neither a Twins nor a Tigers fan, you can’t ask for anything better than this.

The Twins and the Tigers have played 161 games to a draw and go into the last day of the season tied without the safety net of a Wild Card.

Now here comes the Red Sox fan and Yankee hater coming to the surface:
I want the Tigers to win and win today.
The scenario I came up with, Verlander winning two games and A. J. Burnett choking, can only work if the Tigers win.
And as likable as the Twins are, there is NO WAY that team is beating the Yankees.
So let’s see a happy Jim Leyland and have a Tigers team on an emotional high with nothing to lose going into the Bronx.
Again, the Tigers need to know they are playing for petty Red Sox fans!
