The two headed monster of Scherzer Fister tries to get the Tigers back on track tonight against the Royals. Has anyone worked out the playoff rotation yet?
I’m guessing Scherzer will go 4-5 tonight. If he can qualify for a W, he can get to 15 wins for the season.
With a Rangers win yesterday, and a Yankees win this afternoon, a win tonight is as important as ever. Though John Lowe made a compelling argument today that short of Tampa Bay sneaking into the WC, the Tigers would have the better rotation against their likely first round foe.
A few notes:
– ALCS tickets go on sale Monday at 1oam. Prices range from $95 – $170. Details here.
– With 3 more RBI, Cabrera will join 4 other Tigers with 100/100/100 RBI/Runs/Walks. Any guesses? Note, none of them have played in the last 4 decades.
– Since May 20th, Benoit has a 1.47 ERA and 45Ks in 43 IPs.
AJax is the Pregame Prediction for Post Game Player of the Game. I really want him to heat up again, because when he gets on base, he scores. And runs are good.
