    Tigs are barely favorites in this one despite Ver. KC's young pitcher is a highly regarded.

    Danny Duffy pitched well against the Tigers last time and he may well be a star of the future, but right now his WHIP is 1.67 and Verlander's is 0.87. I'm not sure we could say the Tigers are barely the favorites to win this game.

    You have to be kidding. Right? It could end a very close game, and the Tigers could lose, but on paper this one is as easy as it gets.

    6-1 good guys. The struggling Cabrera finally does something good and goes 3-4 with 4 RBI's.

    I wish this game were the mlbtv.com game of the day. How can you tell in advance if your team is scheduled before the actual day of the game? I've tried but failed in this search.

    Indeed. Verlander, Porcello will pitch in Cleveland « Beck's Blog

    You know, the Tigers can do this again--pitch Verlander and skip Penny on August 21--in the next series against the Tribe too. Fortunately, there are offdays on Sept. 8 and Sept. 19 that will give him and the rest of the staff six days off twice. By a miracle of sorts, Turner would be due to pitch on Sept. 9 and Sept. 20 if he stays on a ten-day rotation for the rest of the season and those days are days Penny would be pitching too (two miracles happening the same day). And Turner wouldn't even end up going past 145 inning for the year if he did that. If the Tigers have a good lead in the standings by then it probably wouldn't happen, but if things were close and Penny had been sucking up a storm previous to these starts, Turner could theoretically get the nod.

    I am in a bad mood today and listening to Joe Buck and Tin McCarver isn't helping things.
    They are horrible and I hate Fox blackouts.

    Just in case anyone else cares, Tigers live gave the starting lineup of a basketball team if the tigers starting pitchers played basketball.

    PG- Scherzer
    SG- Porcello
    SF- JV
    PF-Penny
    C-Fister

    Can max run the point?
