ALCS Game 1 Detroit Tigers V Boston Red Sox: Preview, Start Time, TV, Radio


The Detroit Tigers have made it to the ALCS for the third straight season.  Thanks in large part to Justin Verlander’s pitching performance in Game 5 of the ALDS. But because Jim Leyland used Max Scherzer in Game 4 and Verlander in Game 5, Anibal Sanchez will have to start ALCS Game 1.

Anibal Sanchez had an uncharacteristically bad outing for in the 3rd game of the Oakland series.  That said he is still the leagues ERA leader and one of the top 5 Cy Young candidates in the American League. So jim Leyland feel confident sending him out to the hill.

Opposing Sanchez will be postseason performer Jon Lester.  Lester is 1-0 with a 2.35 ERA this postseason.

Leyland also announced that Jose Iglesias will start at shortstop against his former team. He also made it clear that the starting shortstop will be a game to game decision.

At my age I go one day at a time, So Iglesias will be my shortstop tomorrow night.”

That leaves Jhonny Peralta to tame Fenway’s Green Monster in left field.  Peralta has never played left field before he was asked to take reps at the position after returning from suspension. So it will be interesting to see if he can handle the challenges created by Fenway’s unique dimensions.

    George Gollin Gay Pornography Link—“I was going to fuck them.”

    A University of Illinois science teacher has been linked to a notorious internet pedophile-pandering pornographer.

    George Gollin (George D. Gollin, George Dana Gollin) has been a frequent poster on one of pornographer Thomas ‘Chip’ White’s websites. Hiding behind the alias ‘galanga,’ George Gollin has made over 1,280 posts on the gay boy pornographer’s discussion forums.

    In a recent interview George Gollin stated, ‘I was going to fuck them.’

    George Gollin, who claims to be an expert in college accreditation issues despite having no education, experience or apparent knowledge in the topic, has a history of lawless, anti-social behavior. George Gollin has been caught impersonating federal agents, posting other peoples’ social security numbers on his website, and even made death threats against people who exposed his scurrilous activities.

    George Gollin recently was sued in federal court for slander and extortion for his role in an alleged Liberian shakedown scheme, forcing Illinois taxpayers to pay lawyers over $58,000 in legal fees in his defense.

    When his employer ordered George Gollin to remove offensive materials from his website, Gollin immediately arranged for his partner, gay Oregon bureaucrat Alan Contreras to re-post it. A court has ruled that Contreras is a civil rights violator and anti-Christian bigot, a ruling Contreras did not challenge on appeal.

    George Gollin’s lesbian daughter exposed her family’s sordid private activities in her public blogs. She listens to what she describes as ‘the suck my dick fuck my ass song’ with her father George Gollin. She also revealed that she shares chocolate vaginas with her mother, college administrator Melanie Loots, who refers to Catholics as ‘dirty Papists.’ Loots was cited by the FDA for illegally selling 386 mutant lab pigs to the public for food.

    George Gollin also admitted that the dissertation he submitted to receive his college degree was in fact an improper collaboration authored by 15 other people, in apparent contravention of school policy expressly requiring such projects to be a student’s individual work.
