A's vs. Tigers

So I am confused as to why people are choosing the Tigers to win against us in the A.L.C.S. I am talking about a Tigers team that limped into the playoffs the same day the Twins beat them for the Division title and they (Twins) were HEAVLY favored to beat US in the division series.

Not to take anything away from the Tigers and I do congratulate them on beating the Skankees but the Yankees were not a good team as of late and they played horribly, including their pitching that has stunk for most of the year. I can see why people would get behind the Tigers, for several reason, ie; people hate the yankees, people like the Tigers, Bonderman had a great performance against the Yankees and so on. But, must I remind these "new" Tiger fans out there that the A's swept the Twins and played them like a fiddle all three games? I don't know what the Tigers or there fans are hoping to do against us but they should be careful and not underestimate the A's because last I checked our bats are a little better right now and our pitching is pretty damn good too.

It should be a fun one!

GO A's!
