After last night’s implosion, the Detroit Tigers need a big effort out of Justin Verlander tonight at the O.Co to punch their tickets to the ALCS.
Maybe he can channel some of the postseason heroics of this guy… Just not those games that Morris pitched for the Blue Jays.
Bret Saberhagen’s sweet warm-up jacket also wants everyone to enjoy the All-Star Game tonight live from Kauffman Stadium.

213 career wins, 154 saves, over 3,000 Ks, a Cy Young award and a World Series ring, Smoltzy is a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
No discussion necessary.
Seriously, who the eff is “Dave” Cone?
One career the hilariously inept New York Met training staff failed to ruin.
Hurler of a perfect game and speaker of salient observations on YES telecasts, a rare accomplishment when you’re forced to share a booth with Michael Kay.
