Congratulations to the Tigers
I'm still not convinced that the lineup is that impressive; the Yankees have a far better collection of talent in their lineup. But that rotation? I'm downright impressed. The last two starts by Kenny Rogers and Jeremy Bonderman were unbelievable. Joel Zumaya is amazing. And Todd Jones . . . well, he sucks, but who cares?
I'm incredibly excited about the series between the Tigers and the A's. Obviously, I'd rather be watching the Twins face the Tigers in the ALCS, but forget about that. This is going to be a great matchup between two teams with very solid starting pitching. At this point, it's pretty hard to go against the Tigers, isn't it? And is it even going to be fair for whichever team emerges from the ALCS to face the National League champion?
