Bull Shiii-iiiit

This is going to kill us if it continues, Detroit. There is nothing more painful than nearly reaching your goal – not sucking entirely, not being bounced in the first round. No, the worst possible thing is to know your good enough and fall just shy of even competing in the postseason.

Let it sting. Let it BURN. Let it torment you not only for October, watching the Red Sox, Indians, Rangers, and every other suck ass team you knew the Tigers were better than compete to win the World Series. And one of them will. I guess watching inferior division mate Kansas City win it all before Miguel Cabrera or Justin Verlander do didn’t matter. But also, enjoy the offseason, when you realize it’ll take six months off then six months of day-to-day work to even be in the position we held this weekend.

After Friday’s losses to other wild card teams, all we had to do was win and we were in. Win the series. Win against Cleveland Monday. And win the playoff. Instead, not only did we let a 60-win Atlanta team take the series, we also got shutout in our final game of the year ONE TO ZERO. WHAT THE FUCK?

But WE WARNED YOU. After 2014 when Brad botched the Baltimore series. After 2015’s embarrassment. He will remain unassertive, leading us at best 90% of the way before he mismanages us into oblivion. At least a dozen games were winnable that he alone let slip by.

We went down just like we did all season: striking out and failing to manufacture a run while squandering amazing starts from Verlander.

  • Season (& Night(s)) to Remember Well, West Michigan: it was not the way we wanted it to end, losing the final two games at home by one run each time.

  • Despicable Detroit The clock had just struck midnight in West Michigan. September had arrived – as did my younger brother, whose car door could be heard at 11:59.

  • Must Stop Repeating the Past Detroit cannot keep repeating the same juvenile habits that have crippled us in seasons past. I’m LOOKING RIGHT AT YOU, BRAD AUSMUS. DO YOUR GODDAMN JOB.

    ………. it is a waste of life to stand in line to cheer for crap that doesn’t get addressed, so management can stop trying to generate my enthusiasm because I haven’t got any.

      it is very disappointing but it is important to remember to focus on what we can control, which is protesting brad by marching outside the stadium, actually showing up to games demanding that he be fired and we adjust our style, holding the players accountable for not playing small ball. Because it comes back to your original line about how it is a waste of life to just stand in line for nothing; well, then do something about it. Because every year you better believe you’ll be front and center, waiting for the next season… so you can start right now, today, and ask yourself what can I do? Or be destined to loop in Hell.
