Max is on hallowed ground. I want Tigers at the top of best records.
Cleveless is now tied with us for 1st place. They have an easy July schedule against the weak AL central. 21 of those games are at home. Wouldn't surprise me to see them up by 6 games on the Tigs by the end of July.
This argument is why win shares were created. In this case, WAR (wins above replacement) Miggy 4.8 Scherzer 3.3 Sanchez 2.6 Peralta 2.3 Verlander 2.0 Fister 2.0 Infante 1.8 Smyly 1.7 Jackson 1.6 Benoit 1.4 Fielder 1.1 Seems about right to me. Miggy is having one of the greatest hitting years ever. Scherzer's ERA is nothing historic, but very good.
Detroit Tigers all-time record - 8,828-8,578 or a .507 winning percentage. Cleveland Indians all-time record - 8,838-8,543 or a .508 winning percentage. I woulda never guessed that they were better than us all-time.
Justin Verlander of Detroit Tigers thinks he has found delivery problem - ESPN
Tigers already down 8-2 after 4 innings on Canada Day in Toronto. A lot red, white and sho-nuff Blues for the Tigers. Need more than Verlander to find and fix delivery problems.
Nemo: You must not have been around in the 1950s when Bob Lemon, Early Wynn, and Mike Garcia were pitching for Cleveland and they won 114 games. They were very good for quite a few years while the Tigers were not. :-)
I was born in 54', their all-time best team.
But were you born in Cleveland?
nah...I was born at The Lynn Hospital in Detroit.
If he was, he won't admit it
He was born in Cleveland, but then Nemo took his talents to South Beach.
I wonder, how many lives does Jimmeh have? Baseball: Detroit Tigers not as good as advertised- The Register Citizen
Just to let you know, both me and my CT/EMU collaborator HQ contributed to this story. I mean, they pulled it out in 2011 and 12 in the latter months, but I am almost as old as Woody and Jim Leyland and I don't need extra stress in September. Find a closer, mix up the line up. The 3, 4, 5, and 6 batters have not changed all season. Its still early so the lineup can be tweaked. If Papa improves I am OK with bringing him back to keep the bull pen stacked, but only to pitch in the non save 7 run lead games.....if we ever get there. I just don't want to release him all together and he comes back to shut us down ala Fernando Rodney and Jason Grilli .....
