Riddick Bowe Makes Prediction on ALDS via Boxing Metaphor

It would be fair, probably, to say that — so far as the tweet embedded here is concerned, courtesy a certain former heavyweight boxer — it would be fair, probably, to say that Riddick Bowe has (ahem) weighed in on tonight’s Game Five between Oakland and Detroit.

Indeed, let no man suggest that Riddick Bowe has pulled any punches in terms of his thoughts on the likely winner of the ALDS contest to be played this evening.

Surely, two-time champion Riddick Bowe is of the opinion that the A’s have the Tigers on the ropes in this decisive meeting.

Credit to CSN Bay Area’s Casey Pratt for bringing the author’s attention to this raw, raw material.

Well far be it for me to disagree with the accomplished Mr. Bowe, but I don’t think the Tigers are going to throw in the towel on this one just yet.

Tonight’s game is going to be interesting. In my opinion, if either team comes in just looking to roll with the punches, that team will soon find itself up against the ropes with little more than a puncher’s chance. Either way I’m looking forward to Verlander and Sonny going toe-to-toe. Pound-for-pound, they’re two of the best pitchers in the playoffs. In conclusion, TKO uppercut glass jaw down for the count.

I’m only interested in Jose Canseco tweets.
