My sincerest thanks to billfer for entrusting me with the task of guarding the island.
Our Tigers take their 16-29 road record and one game win streak to the Trop. Scherzer has been brilliant in July thus far posting a 3-1 record with a 2.00 ERA and 25 Ks in 27 IP. Upon further inspection, did you know that Scherzer has 100 Ks in 105.2 IPs?
We all know that Valverde will be unavailable, so let’s get to Garza early and often. Tigers have had some success against Tampa as of late, going 8-3 since September of ’08, and are 10-4 overall versus the East this year.
