Having said that you nevr know how the Rookie [Nova] will handle the pressure either. CC will be in the pen. Not sure if thats good or bad.
Is it 830 yet
Keep in mind, Fister went 7-1 after we acquired him from Seattle. Those wins were pretty decisive too. He was shutting opposing lineups down.
Fister needs to control his adrenaline and slow down the game. If he does that and trusts his stuff, he'll have an excellent outing. Just execute.
Come on, dude. The Tigers have proven themselves all year! I'm not afraid of the Yankees- it's anyone's game.
Nova could come out and choke. Fister could throw 8 shutout innings. Just the opposite could happen too. Like I said, it's anyone's game.

I would imagine Coke is our guy early if Fister gets into trouble. Maybe Perry, but Coke has better stuff.
Lets just hope the Skipper doesn't have to make that decision.
I'm rooting for the Tigers through and through, but I would love to see a nail biter like the game on Monday.
Great pitching on both sides and a late game hero to march onto the ALCS!
Blow outs are entertaining, but the suspense of a close game are the games you remember.
I've got nothing bad to say about DK starting at 3rd and batting second (hitting .429 in the series with 7 at-bats).
Inge might be a hometown favorite and he put the bat on the ball a couple of times for us early in the series, but I'd rather have Kelly batting left in the lineup against Nova (who is right handed).
Besides, NY will have a lot of pull hitters batting from the left side of the plate, which negates the argument that Inge plays better defense then Kelly.
Not a bad move in my opinion.
