The pain of another World Series loss could linger long for the Tigers

“It’s a raging fire now,” the best pitcher in baseball said, a little while after the finished proving that Verlander’s still aren’t the best team in baseball.It’s a funny thing about this game, maybe about any game. The further you go, the better you do, the bigger the disappointment if you don’t take it all the way.Thes he wants to be playing regular Champions League football.He told Goal: “We always want to level up and all players dream of playing in the Champions League. It’s a big competition and it’s good to have been followed by these kind of clubs. These ar Tigers aren’t losers, and their season didn’t end in disarray. But sometimes the disappointment of falling just short can be worse than the disappointment of not coming close at all.”Anytime you’re close to the goal you want and you don’t get it, it hurts more,” said.The Tigers’ season ended with no excuses. They didn’t lose because of bad luck or a long layoff. They lost because when it counted, their big guys didn’t hit, and for the most part their little guys didn’t, either.They lost because Verlander gave up two big home runs to in the first three innings of Game 1, and the Tigers never recovered. They never led a game until the third inning of Game 4, and even that lead only held up for three innings.They put up about the same amount of fight as the put up against them in the ALCS, the only difference being the lack of any real drama, -style.”There was nothing fluky about it,” manager Jim Leyland said. “We got our ass kicked. We got to the heavyweight fight, and we got knocked out.”Leyland spoke for a while about how the Tiger culture has changed in the seven years since he arrived. He took over a team that had gone 13 years without a winning season, and in seven years since has been to three American League Championship Series and two World Series.”It’s been great,” he said. “It’s been fun.”He never said it would continue. He never spoke about the future.In fact, if there was any sense of finality about this World Series loss, it was that it ended with more uncertainty than ever that the 67-year-old Leyland will return for another year.With him or without him, the Tigers could well be back. Their key players are signed or under control, and Victor Martinez will be back after missing all of this season after knee surgery.As always, they’ll have owner Mike Ilitch’s money available, and they’ll have the drive that comes with having an 83-year-old owner who badly wants a World Series ring.”The same team’s going to be here — with more,” Fielder said. “That’s a plus.”It was back in January, when the Tigers signed Fielder, that people seriously began talking about the Tigers as a team that could win the World Series — or as a team that should win the World Series.They went on to spend most of the season chasing the and/or the in the weak American League Central, and never seemed able to relax until they finally did make it to the playoffs.The no-doubt high point arrived 10 days ago, with the four-game sweep of the Yankees, but it was followed quickly by five days without a game and then by the four straight losses to the Giants.We’ll never know for sure whether the layoff had anything to do with the Tigers’ lack of hitting against the Giants (or with Verlander’s out-of-sync, out-of-character bad outing in Game 1). , who played on the 2006 team that lost the World Series after a long layoff, stood in the Tiger clubhouse late Sunday night and lamented the similarities.Whether it was that or whether it was simply the Giants’ strong pitching, the Tigers ended the World Series feeling that the world hadn’t seen them at close to their best.”They played perfectly,” catcher said. “We just couldn’t keep up.”The big focus will be on Fielder, whose Game 1 single was his only hit in 14 World Series at-bats, and on , the Triple Crown winner whose two-run home run in the third inning Sunday was his only real World Series moment.But just as in 2006, when the Tigers hit .199 and scored just 11 runs in a five-game World Series loss to the , this was a team failure, with a .159 team batting average and just six runs in four games.The Tigers’ pitching was good enough that when they briefly took a 2-1 lead in Game 4, they began to dream of a miracle comeback. Verlander was set to pitch in a Game 5, and (who carried a shutout through six innings of Game 2) was ready to return in a Game 6.”There wasn’t a doubt in my mind,” Verlander said.Not a doubt, even though no team had ever recovered from a three games to one World Series hole, even though the record now shows that 21 of the 24 teams that have fallen behind three games to none haven’t even made it to Game 5.”We had a good chance to win it all,” Verlander said — and yes, he was talking about winning it all after losing the first three.At 29, Verlander has accomplished plenty, from Rookie of the Year to Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award winner in the same season. He’s been an All-Star starting pitcher (although it didn’t go well), and he has twice started Game 1 of the World Series (which hasn’t gone well, either).What he hasn’t done is what the Tigers haven’t done since 1984.He knows it. He feels it.”Absolutely,” he said. “There’s definit after completing a switch to Inter Milan.The Italian side paid £74m to get the deal over the line.Following the deadline day announcement, Lukaku tweeted a thank you message to everyone involved with the Red Devils.To everyone involved with Manchesely a burning fire to win it all. The only thing that takes that away is to win it.”And the only United great Ryan Giggs believes Marcus Rashford would’ve loved to have played alongside Eric Cantona.Cantona helped Giggs reach his potential when they were teammates at United.And the Wales coach told Bleacher Report: “He was just different. You sthing that makes it worse is to come all this way, and then lose it.Months from now, perhaps even days from now, the Tigers will look back on 2012 as a good year. There’s no other way to see it, when you win a pennant, when you’re one of the final two teams standing.”It would be very tough to look back at this year as a negative,” Verlander said. But it will oh so easy to look back and feel the pain of watching the Giants rush the field at Comerica Park when it ended.”That’s something that’s going to be etched in my mind,” Avila said. “The thing is, we do have the team to get back here.”They have no choice now. They have no choice but to find a way back.As every other team that loses a World Series would tell you — as Verlander would tell you about 2006 — the pain of losing won’t go away quickly.It may never leave, unless or until they win.

The Giant at-bat that changed Game 1


SAN FRANCISCO — Pablo Sandoval did much of the damage for the Giants as they roared off to a rousing start in this World Series, but hitting coach Hensley Meulens called Marco Scutaro’s third-inning at-bat the biggest of the game.It came during a tough sequence for Tigers ace Justin Verlander in which, with two out, Angel Pagan battled Verlander for eight pitches before poking a double off of the third-base bag, and Scutaro battled Verlander for another eight pitches before rapping an RBI single to make it 2-0.Had Verlander been able to beat either Pagan or Scutaro, the inning would have ended before Sandoval cracked his second homer.

He was throwing me two-seamers hard, sliders, curves. Fortunately, he threw me a slider at 3 and 2 that he hung over the plate.”With Pagan on second and two out, Verlander started Scutaro with a blazing 96 mph four-seamer for a ball, then followed that with another that Scutaro fouled off.Then came a slow curve, 82, for another ball, followed by another curve, this one at 83, for a called strike.Next, Verlander threw a big curve in the dirt for a ball to fall beh-old has returned to the German capital for a second consecutive season as he prepares to join Liverpool’s first team come 2020/21.”It’s not easy to become a part of the Liverpool squad, I can see myself in the red shirt but I have to become more expind 3 and 2.That, Scutaro said, was the key pitch of the entire at-batdan in the coming days.The Dutch teen will quit Chelsea for a €2.5m fee, says Kicker.Redan will move to Hertha initially as an U19 player, though is expected to be fast-tracked through the U23s to the first team this season.In 51 matches for Hollan.”He threw that big curve, and it was like, boom, boom … it was a 12 to 6, and it was sharp,” Scutaro said. “It was so nasty, I couldn’t even swing at it. It was down. It was a great pitch.”Had it stayed in the strike zone, it would have been an even greater pitch for Verlander, because it would have been strike three and he would have been out of the inning with the score still 1-0 in San Francisco’s favor.Instead, it was ball three.Now, Scutaro was thinking one thing.”Just see the ball and make contact,” he said.Here is where he fought off consecutive 98 mph fastballs, fouling both of them away.Then came a slider that Scutaro could handle.

Umpire Jim Joyce makes the best call of the year — before the game


(Getty Images)

You never know when the big moments will arrive, and so it was that veteran umpire Jim Joyce made his biggest call of the season … roughly 90 minutes before the -Diamondbacks game started in onded leaving Olivier Giroud at home for their 2-2 draw at Leicester City.Chelsea finished the game without a recognised striker on the pitch as centre-half Toni Rudiger scored both their goals.”It was nothing to do with the frame of mind, no,” said th Monday night.Joyce administered CPR to a Diamondbacks’ game-day employee named Jayne Powers in a tunnel leading to the umpires’ dressing room minutes on his way into the ballpark Monday, saving her life in a moment nobody who was in the vicinity at Chase Field will soon forget.Talk about making the right call in a split-second.”It was non-normal,” Joyce told CBSSports.com Tuesday afternoon. “I don’t know what word to put on it.”It’s obviously never happened to me before.”

“We’re thrilled that she’s doing well today,” Russ Amaral, vice-president for Chase Field operations and facilities management, said. “And we’re grateful to those who were there to help.”

Powers, a beloved, original employee dating back to the franchise’s inception, has worked in concessions for the Diamondbacks since March 1, 1998. She remains in the hospital and hopes to be released by week’s end, according to the Diamondbacks.Joyce, 56, and the other umpires in his crew — Lance Barrett, Jim Reynolds and James Hoye — had just arrived at Chase Field and were headed to their dressing room when they saw a woman down in the midst of having a seizure. Noting that, Joyce, who learned CPR when he was in high school, made sure that the woman’s head was protected. But shortly afterward, her body relaxed and Joyce knew something was wrong.”I’ve had to use CPR before,” Joyce said, though not in many years. “This is something everybody should know. Everybody should know what to do in a circumstance like that.”It’s not a hard thing. You don’t need a degree. It’s very simple, and very easy.”Paramedics arrived while Joyce was administering CPR, but even after an initial shock from a defibrillator, Powers did not come out of it. So Joyce continued administering CPR while the paramedics did another round with the defibrillator.Finally, Powers began breathing again. Someone told Joyce later Monday night that she went out again in the ambulance and that paramedics again used the defibrillator. But by later that night, when he came back into the umpires’ room following the game, Joyce’s understanding w not think that Sean Longstami was left disappointed with defeat at West Ham United.Obafemi levelled proceedings midway through the first period, cancelling out Jarrod Bowen’s opener, but Saints succumbed to two second-half strikes, meaning they left the capital empty handed.”Vff will leave for Manchester United this summer.The Red Devils have a reported interest in the young defensive midfielder.However, Newcastle want to keep Longstaff, who broke into their first team at the end of last seasonas that Powers’ condition in the hospital was stable.”I’m going to find out more, hopefully she’s doing OK,” said Joyce, who was waiting for an update Tuesday.Joyce, who was in the national spotlight in 2010 when he missed the call at first base that prevented the ‘ Armando Galarraga from completing a perfect game against the , was scheduled to work home plate Monday night.After the emotions of the moment, his colleagues suggested a swap that would move him to third base. Joyce declined.”It was very emotional, I’ll be honest with you,” he said. “But I didn’t want to go to third base because just standing there, literally, [the incident] is all I would have thought about all night. I wouldn’t have been able to think about anything else.”Going behind the plate, I would have something to do every minute. I could just do my job. But I’ll be honest with you, there were still times during the game that I was thinking about it.”The Marlins clobbered the Diamondbacks 12-3, and it was a fairly routine game for Joyce behind the plate. There were no controversies.Turns out, not only did Joyce long ago learn CPR, but his daughter currently is in EMT school and his son, a coach back home in Beaverton, Ore., is certified in CPR.”Just knowing it, I think it’s imperative,” Joyce said. “You may never, ever, have to use it.”But it’s just that one time that you do.”
