Now they play the next 7 days versus 1st place teams, 3 vs Cubs and 4 vs Twins. Then 2 with Brewers and then 4 more with the Twins. 

Yikes. 

I think a 4-9 record would be a successful outcome in those series.

Nice series win for the Tigers.  When you are fighting for the 8th playoff spot, those are especially important.  They have a tough schedule ahead, but that's what you want.  Those are teams they will need to beat if they are going to succeed in the playoffs.  

Its what winning teams do.

At this point, no serious injures to future key players paired with something positive they can build off of is a successful outcome.

In a global pandemic where fans can't go to the game, must voice my displeasure of how stupid the teams trying to do something for the fans looks. 

Cool. 

What they should do (maybe they are) is offer cardboard cutouts to fans. $500 gets your face on cardboard in a seat for the season. Ya gotta think marketing. But I still say most of them should be looking at their phones.

Until this series the Indians were 59-17 against the Tigers since 2016. And the Tigers had lost 20 games in a row against them coming into this series. To beat the Indians twice on their home field in this context regardless of how weird this season is makes this kind of epic. It doesn’t mean they’re great but it means there’s glimmers of the positive. There hasn’t even been much of that for quite a while.

That's what most of these teams are doing. I think it's something like a hundred bucks. I think it's pretty cool.

Its only a small sample size, but the seasons that Cisnero & Soto are having in the bullpen compared to last season are just fantastic.  And I think I finally have some sort of trust in Farmer.

Farmer is not quite back to himself, yet.

Not sure a cardboard cutout of Leyland would be wise.  That change of inning break where he sneaks a quick heater would be a fire hazard for sure.
