Yes the kids are alright. The Tigers managed to pull out a win in the unfriendly confines of Yankee Stadium to tie the series 1-1. You don't need me to tell you that, I mean if you are a Tiger fan you know that already.
This was a good win but believe it or not, not a surprise. After the first game, which saw Derek Jeter go 5-5, you just felt the Tigers could play even with the Yankees.
This game was delayed from Wednesday and it obviously helped the Tigers more then the Yankees. The kids were able to rest and obviously remind themselves that they are fighting for the forces of good against the Evil Empire. And we know good always triumphs over evil.
There is a couple of concerns, namely Pudge's lack of offensives prowess so far this series, hopefully that will change. Then again, you have A-Rod for the Yankees not doing anything. Ahh yes, another stellar playoff year for the guy who's quickly becoming the most hated player in pinstripes, and that's from the Yankee faithful.
Two games in Comerica. You gotta believe.
