2012 ALCS Game 3: Tigers vs. Yankees, Tuesday 10/16, 7 pm CT

New, 376 comments

Detroit has a very good chance of taking a commanding 3-0 lead in the series behind their ace, Justin Verlander.

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Here's a little something I wrote for Baseball Nation on the Matt Holliday slide in Monday's NLCS game; it includes video of a similar slide Holliday made into Starlin Castro in St. Louis in July 2011.

Am I insinuating something about Holliday? Of course not. (Of course.)

Meanwhile, the punchless Yankees meet the Tigers' best pitcher, a man who has allowed one run in 16 innings this postseason, allowing seven hits (five singles and two doubles) with five walks and 22 strikeouts. That's a WHIP of 0.75.

I expect the Tigers to be up three games to none after tonight.
