The playoffs being what they are, we knew that only one team -- and its fans -- would actually be happy when the whole thing was over. So what did the Tigers and all the other "losers" (and yes, that includes the Yankees) learn from the playoffs?
I like that a team wins or loses together. No one person carries a team, no one person takes credit for their success. As they say, there's no "I" in "team." Baseball proves this point, every game, and that's really cool.
No one expected one inning of runs to start the National League Championship Series. But as they say in the Majors, "that's just baseball!" Two starting pitchers ended their nights early and the starting pitching rotation for the San Francisco Giants is in question.
