And, Detroit is 16 games below .500, and totally out of post season contention. So, I wonder what would cause these two teams to fight?


Deep seated hatred between the two teams going back a long time. Complete frustration on the Tigers team with their pitiful performance this season, even to the point where it seems Justin Verlander and Victor Martinez don't like each other.

Have I mentioned Brad Ausmus should be fired?

I don't think there was deep-seated hatred between them. There is now. The Tigers have eliminated the Yankees from the playoffs (twice, I think) but I don't remember bad blood between them. I will be sure to watch their first game next Spring.
