06.06-06.08 - White Sox @ Tigers

Hot on the heels of a Boston Red Sox series that saw the Tigers drop a tragic first game in the top of the ninth followed by a victory and then an ugly loss... The colors of the sox change but the quality of the opposition does not. The Chicago White Sox, the defending champs, look to rebound from their own bad play as they come into town. The Tigers may have only gone 4-6 over their last ten games... but shockingly they actually put another game in hand on the White Sox over that span as the dirty socked AL Chicagoans went a meager 3-7 over the same period.

In fact, not much of the American League Central has had a good week and a half. The Indians and Twins both managed to make meager gains on the division leaders with records of only 5-5, and the Royals only managed to break even with the division (and Major League) leading Tigers with a 4-6 record of their own. So without further adieu I give you the starting pitchers for this three game rebound affair...

GAME 1: Freddy Garcia @ Nate Robertson
GAME 2: Jose Contreras @ Justin Verlander
GAME 3: Jon Garland @ Kenny Rogers

With all due honest, I am pulling for nothing less than two out of three. In previous years a measly win might have satiated me against the World Champions... but right now we're supposed to be the best team in baseball, holding onto the best record across the majors. We need to start showing it. Dropping series to both the Yankees and the Red Sox was a blow, but a rebound series with against Chicago would show people that despite that mini-slump we ARE for real.

Lets go Tigers! RESTORE THE ROAR~!
DETROIT! Lets Restore the Roar!
We can all to that.
