Orioles and Tigers have gone longer without a World Series title than the Royals.

Stress free playoff baseball is fun.
The biggest upside to your team missing the dance. Enjoying the fireworks without having a heart attack.

If Scherzer can get out of here, his pitch count is still fine. Could be big considering how awful the Tigers bullpen is.

Maybe the Tigers want the bullpen in based on how Scherzer looks. No strikeouts through the first 10 batters.

All I know is it takes an hour and it's done for your protection.  
Martinizing Dry Cleaning is a dry cleaning franchise founded in 1949. Martin Franchises, Inc., the parent company, is the largest dry cleaning franchise in the United States, with over 450 franchised stores worldwide. The family-owned company is based in Loveland, Ohio. The concept of One Hour Martinizing was pioneered by a New York chemist named Henry Martin in 1949. At the time, dry cleaning was done with flammable solvents, so the plants were located remotely from the storefronts. A customer would drop off their cleaning "in town", the garments would travel to the production facility to be cleaned and pressed, then they would return to the store several days later for pickup. By using a non-flammable solvent, the use of which was discovered by Martin, dry cleaning plants could now be located much more conveniently, and the process could be carried out in a much more timely manner. The use of this non-flammable solvent was adopted throughout the industry and revolutionized the business in that facilities could better serve their customers and provide much faster turn-around on the orders, if need be. Operationally this has been termed "on-site cleaning" (as opposed to the "remote" cleaning of the past).
 
In the world of google/wiki we need no longer wonder about anything.
 
Fun game, eh?
Sorry, didn't see the link before. I didn't have my computer glasses on. Getting old. . . .

Great job, Torii. Kinsler has a 14-pitch at bat and then Hunter goes out on the first pitch. Bunting no less.

Tori Hunter doing his best to offset Kinsler's 14 pitch AB.

I think I'm rooting for Baltimore to get to the WS and then get swept by Natstown.

Plus its a one run game, and Detroit have three guys who are up there with the very best at putting one in the seats.

Why are people talking about this now? Viagra commercials and MLB have been paired together for years now.

Viagra used to be big on visual metaphors, like a guy throwing a football through a tire swing. Subtle, eh? But beyond the imagination of most 5 year-olds, apparently.
