Reminder: Division Series tickets on sale at noon

Just a friendly reminder — especially for those of you who might have tried logging on or calling early — that tickets for Division Series games at Comerica Park go sale today at noon. They’re available online at and by phone at 866-66-TIGER.

For Division Series tickets, there’s a limit of six tickets per order, per game.

The A’s actually lost to the Angels last night, so the gap between Detroit and Oakland for the American League’s second-best record is down to a game. Oakland’s magic number is also down to seven now because the Rangers keep losing. At this rate, the A’s might be able to clinch before the Tigers do. Add in Oakland’s remaining schedule — two more at home against the Angels, four against the Twins, three in Anaheim and three in Seattle — and it’s hard to tell which way the second seed is going to go.

This year’s Division Series return to a 2-2-1 format for home-and-road games. The schedule was released last week:

  • Game 1: Friday, Oct. 4 (TBS or MLB Network)
  • Game 2: Saturday, Oct. 5 (TBS)
  • Game 3: Monday, Oct. 7 (TBS or MLB Network)
  • Game 4: Tuesday, Oct. 8 (TBS)
  • Game 5: Thursday, Oct. 10 (TBS)

If the Tigers get one of the top two seeds, they’ll host Games 1, 2 and 5. If they have the worst record of the three division winners, they’ll host Games 3 and 4.


Not only are the Mariners terrible at offense this year, but they’ve been really bad lately. 2013: .696OPS, last 7 days .569OPS.
Go get them anibal!

Off topic, but has the team said anything about Rondon? Has he been shut down? He has a tender elbow according to the Det News.

being extremely vague. they are.

Elbow tenderness
“He’s OK, no red flags, but we backed him off,” manager Jim Leyland said. “He’s going to, I believe, throw tomorrow.” ( yesterday)

Sorry, JL said that yesterday. Would pitch today

I guess the wild card games are like a second All-Star break. No way for the three division winners to really set up a rotation properly. Let the crap shoot begin!!!!


The Division winners play Friday. 4 days of rest for the pitchers used on Sunday
