  • Tigers A's

    Oakland has been fun to watch all year, but they were just a little bit overmatched in this series. Brandon Moss and Yoenis Cespedes are rookies with power, not future legends with power like Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera are.

    And Justin Verlander lives for games like this. This had been the one sticking point for them all year. Jered Weaver had a complete game shutout, and other elite pitchers have dominated this crew. They can't seem to break the MLB's best, yet they get to everyone else.

    Wish they could have pulled it out, but still good to see a team other than the Rangers or Angels win that division.moreless
  • The Clock Struck Midnight for the Cinderella A's

    What a great run the A's had this year. I can't recall anyone forecasting a playoff spot for the A's and certainly not a division championship ahead of two-time defending AL Champion Texas Rangers and Albert Pujols and the L.A. Angels.

    At the end of the day, it was too much Justin Verlander, who proved why he is the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner and league MVP. I think the Tigers will have a tougher time in the ALCS against whichever AL East team they face. We'll see how it turns out.

    Oakland has a bright future if their rookie pitchers are able to follow up their great seasons. The league now has film to study and no doubt batters will make their adjustments. A terrific series.moreless
