Watched them in ST.
Thought that their lineup was a little old and they might fade some in August. 6-12 in their last 18.
Didn't realize they would have such a large lead, so it has not caused them divisional trouble yet.
I think that they will regroup and end pretty strong.
With Grandy at .240 and Martin at .198 and a lot of guys around .250, right now they kind of just have Jeter and Cano , although Chavez is having a good series against us. They are built to be a Yankee stadium HR team and that does not work so well in Comerica.
Hope they wait until they leave town to regroup.
<Chavez is having a good series against us. >
Chavez is quietly having a pretty good season. I remember before we signed Fielder and moved Cabby to 3B, I suggested we offer Chavez a deal to bolster offense at 3B.
It looks like the injury woes that plagued him for the last five years may finally be gone.
You were going to replace my boy Brandon ( got his average way up to .216) with that bum?
Heavens, you wil never be forgiven.
Why would he pitch tomorrow??
Fister has been slated to start there all along.
Scherzer pitched the last game in the Cleveland series.
He's getting the first game of the Rangers series.
I'm expecting that we will give back the game we gained yesterday. We are facing Sabathia, and the White Sox got that Quintana kid pitching.
I agree they'll trySupposed to start raining at noon tomorrow, and get worse all day. All night long
Going to end up being one of those 6 inning games maybe, if they play at all
Just looked up the common off day. Only one, Monday Sept 17th
We'll be flying in from Cleveland. That would be the first game of an 11 game home-stand.
Yankees in the middle of a home-stand. Would have to fly here Sunday nite after an afternoon game against the Rays, play us Monday, then fly back to NY for a game Tuesday nite Vs. the Blue Jays.
If they were to rain it out, and make it up that day, then that will make the Tigers last off day would be Sept 6th. (for we have a R/O make-up with the Royals on the 24th)
28 games to close the season, without a day off.
They are looking for a stopper tonight.
We should get CC's best, doesn't bode well for us.
