“I thought the ‘al-co-hol-lic’ chant at Cabrera was about as classy as his Saturday night escapades. At least he shut them up with that 2 run homer in the 3rd inning.
Equally tacky was Denard Span’s quote about the Tigers “choking” , as mentioned here in Beck’s Blog .
Speaking of which, before too many people get on this “historic collapse” bit about the Tigers, we need to remember that they were also on the verge of achieving a rare “worst-to-first” finish following the disastrous 2008 season.
I am heartbroken tonight, but as a fan I want to thank the Tigers for an entertaining, if not great, 2009 season. A winning record, 4th highest attendance in MLB. Not bad for a team expected to finish last in their division and a town with the worst economy in the nation. There truly “ain’t no party like a Detroit party”.
A season assessment/review is forthcoming.
More as it develops…
