Okay, I admit it: the Tigers are running out of gas in the A.L. Central race. The Twins are on a roll, with the White Sox not far behind. Worse, the Tigers have let slip to the Yanks the best overalll league record, ensuring home-field advantage in the playoffs.
The problem? No hitting. The only lumber these guys can muster at the moment is morning wood. But on the plus side, a .500 run the rest of the way will give them 95 wins, probably good enough for the post-season. If we can get Polanco back from the DL, and others stop swinging at bad pitches with men on base, we can work it out. I hope.
