08:16 AM ET 10.29 | Prior to Game 4, Tigers' reliever Octavio Dotel took the occasion of an MLB Network Radio appearance to throw some high heat in the way of his teammates. [Dotel] said that, among other things, he didn't see the same kind of fight in this team as he did in last year's World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals. "I'll be honest," Dotel told Casey Stern, Jim Duquette and Jim Bowden. "I haven't seen that here." ... The veteran right-hander said that he would do it, that he wasn't afraid to do it but also that it wasn't his job. "I will do it," Dotel said. "I'm not afraid to do it, but it's not about me. It's gotta be like Prince (Fielder), (Alex) Avila, Miggy (Cabrera), Jhonny (Peralta), (Omar) Infante, someone. Just make something happen."

it is easy to start pointing fingers when you are down 3-0, but the bottom line is the Giants shut down the Cards in the last 4 games of their series and continued to do so in the WS against the Tigers.

Would the Giants have made the playoffs without Cabrera using steroids earlier this season?

Kate should know then that I have never lost a single game in my entire (non-existent) MLB career.
