2008-09-29 10:30:00Tigers/White Sox Play-In Game"First-pitch fastball"?

That sure looked like a hanging breaking ball to me. I guess the last 45 minutes have given us the full list of reasons why the Tigers were so lousy this year. The failure to get big hits in the fifth and sixth, and a complete lack of major-league relievers. Gary Glover? Really?
