Yes John, I had them winning in 6 games.

It's 2-0 Tigers; looks like the sweep might go the other way with Verlander and Scherzer up next at Comerica!!

Hmm. That prediction isn't going so well, is it?

John, so many things had to happen for the Tigers the past two weeks to accelerate their chances ... and they've ALL happened! The A's sweep the Rangers to take the West, the Rangers lose the wild card, the Yankees beat the O's throwing almost 6 games worth of innings, and then they play Detroit without an off day. We beat them in NYC with our 3-4 starters and come home with JV and Max going. And if you dare look ahead, the Reds and Nationals have both been eliminated in the NL. It could be a very exciting next couple of weeks.

Mike, do you think the Tigers are now a team of destiny? I agree that things look great right now for the team.
