That is why it is a team sport

Lots of drama. No win for Verlander, a blown save for Valverde, no start for Inge, Bobby Valentine did not get ejected, A game winning rbi from last year's strikeout king, no homers from our big guns - yet we won and that is why baseball is a team sport!!


  1. Well any sport with two or more players on a side is a team sport. The opener shows how worthless won-loss record can be for pitchers. JV throws a 2-hit shutout for 8 innings and gets no decision. He could've yielded a dozen hits and 7 earned runs and still gotten the W if the Tigers had scored 8 or more runs.
