Verlander Dominates as the Tigers Advance to the ALCS: I think this is number one," Verlander said. "The two no-hitters are obviously up there, but that's something a little bit different. This is win or go home. My team needs me. And I was able to go out there and have one of the better performances I've had.

Brad Ausmus took Anibal Sanchez out after two innings for no discernible reason. One day after taking Max Scherzer out of the game before he had reached 100 pitches. Put Joba in both times despite Joba having an awful second half of the season.

Brady Hoke's Dangerous Incompetence So Bad ESPN Announcers Denounce It

The student section immediately broke out into a FIRE BRANDON chant (Dave Brandon is the AD who has pissed off the students, the faculty, the alumni and pretty much everyone else he's physically capable of pissing off at least once in his five-year tenure). Not FIRE BRADY -- I think the students have accepted that Hoke is simply in over his head.

I sit in the front row of the student section. After the game a woman we believe to be Hoke's daughter confronted us saying that the "Fire Brady" chants were "assholeish" and that it affects him/them. We had to explain that we were chanting "Fire Brandon" and not "Fire Brady". There is no real reason to chant "Fire Brady" since he is as good as gone. With all the money Brandon brings into the university it is more likely that they might keep him.

The band also began playing in between every play in an effort to keep us from chanting.

It is extremely likely that Michigan will break its streak of over 100,000 fans in attendance this year. I'm skeptical that they will be able to fill the seats come November when it is colder and they have lost a few more games.

Does anybody know a good place to find hitting statistics for pitchers? Most sites I have checked have no hitting data for pitchers.

I saw Jay-Z and Kanye West a couple of years ago and they were fantastic. But if that is not what you are in to I can understand why you would not enjoy it.

Pretty good gig those 2 have getting folks to shell out money to watch them perform karaoke (concert implies music, music implies musicians in my books).

Why did you go?
