I'm not sure how accurate this rotation is. Lord willing, RJ will be unable to pitch Game 3 because of his back...

 

I feel like every team has a chance because no one is coming into this thing on a tear or as an absolute favorite. I don't think Detroit is playing very good ball at all right now. As it was, Detroit had won 8 of their previous 9 games before the Yankees came to town and took 3 of 4 in late May. Then there was that day/night double header series where the Yankees really should have swept [Proctor screwed the pooch in a save situation with Mo unavailable in the night game] but still managed 2 of 3.

 

I like NY's chances.

Nate starting game 1? Did I miss something amazing he must have done? Anyway, I might go with the yanks here, a lot of pitching but the tigers have cooled off big time.

 

Rogers, the planned starter of Game 1, pitched yesterday in relief (2 IP), so they needed to make some adjustments.

 

Anyway, let's go Yankees (but not until Nate is out of the game and won't get the loss)!

You'd rather throw Jaret Wright out there then Randy?

The Yankees have the best lineup I've ever seen...Robinson Cano is their weakest hitter, and he's one of the best in baseball at his position...The Tigers have much better pitching, but the Yankees offense will be too much to handle...of the Twins, Tigers, and A's, the Twins are the only team with a realistic shot of knocking off the Yankees

The Tigers better pitching will allow them to win a game or two though

Robinson Cano is their weakest hitter...

http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/stats/index.jsp

 

Here's where Cano ranks among qualified [400 AB] AL 2B:

BA: 1

OBP: 1

SLG: 1

TB: 1

2B: 1

RBI: 2

HR: 2

H: 4

 

And he missed about 200 AB with an injury. If you think that a guy with the 3rd highest BA in the league is the Yankees "weakest hitter," I feel sorry for the competition.

 

BTW - Guillen > Jeter? Please. You do know that Jeter is among the favorites for league MVP, right? You do know that we are headed for POST season play, right?

 

I won't even get into the Leyland vs. Torre debate. It's not even worth it.

 

Oh right, and you know that Wang finished tied for the league lead in wins with Santana AND the Yanks won both of his starts against Detroit [including a 2-0 gem against Robertson], right? :whistle

You can seriously say Nate Robertson is better than Wang?

 

Wang is 3-0 with a 2.5 ERA in his career against the Tigers. This of all the games looks the most un-winnable.
