    what the heck…tigers 3rd in AL Central?? Are you kidding me???
    Even RedSox coach yesterday on ESPN said number one challenege for his team would be beating the Tigers this year, he said without a doubt they are not only the best team in the AL Central but flat out all of baseball.

    maybe they arent the best in baseball but I’d give them 1st or 2nd in AL C no doubt.

    I know a lot of “experts” pick them but I’ve gotta go with my instincts and the numbers. I just can’t see Durbin being a viable option in Rogers’ absence and Verlander could very well shut down. The Twins have the best pen in the majors and the Indians have Adam Miller waiting to take a rotation spot, not to mention a deep rotation and great lineup. Only time will tell…
