Thursday Night Recap/ Friday night outlook


Well thank god I’m not a gambler, because I said I couldn’t think of someone worse to put out there than Doug Fister for the Tigers, and what do you know he gets the W and moves the Tigers on to the ALCS against the Texas Rangers.  Detroit were led by back to back homeruns in the first inning by Don Kelly, and Delmon Young.  Young mostly known for his altercation with the umpire, where he threw his bat at him during a minor league game, is slowly becoming the Cody Ross of this year’s playoffs.  He tied a Tigers postseason series record with 3 homeruns in the ALDS.  He was pulled in the middle of the game because of a strained oblique in which he said he’ll try to be ready for Saturday if not they do have some depth in the outfield with Ryan Raburn, and Brennan Boesch.

Jim Leyland looked like a genius for not putting in Verlander, which I thought from the beginning they were gonna save him for the ALCS, that is very promising for the Tigers having Verlander most likely available for 3 games out of the 7 coming up.  Jose Valverde stayed perfect again for not blowing a save all year, playoffs or regular season, and I was kind of surprised he didn’t have a bigger celebration after striking out Alex Rodriguez to end the game.

NHL

The NHL season got underway with the Flyers topping the reigning Stanley Cup Champions Boston Bruins 2-1, Roberto Luongo didn’t help his cause in Vancouver by having a save percentage below .900 and letting up 3 goals, and eventually losing in a shootout 4-3.  Look for Corey Schneider to take over sometime during this season for the Canucks.

Friday night Previews

– The Chicago Blackhawks take on the Dallas Stars in their regular season opener, the Stars have a new coach in Glen Gulutzan, look for them to play with a passion tonight in Dallas.  I think Jonathan Toews will have his club ready for this one, and look to dominate the first two games of the season as the clubs also play each other in Chicago tomorrow night, in a home and home series.

–  The two NLDS game 5’s are tonight with the Cardinals vs Phillies, and Brewers vs. Diamondbacks.  I would love for both teams on the NL Central to lose tonight so I don’t have to hear all next year when the Cubs face either the Brewers, or Cardinals and they make it to the World Series.  I look for Roy Halladay to pitch the complete game tonight against the Cards, and look for Ian Kennedy to throw a gem tonight in Milwaukee, the young stud doesn’t lose two in a row quite often after going 21-4 this season.

– I will have my Start em and Sit em tonight posted later tonight for Week 5 of this NFL Season, and will have my predictions for all the games this weekend.
