June's 1st Test: Tigers/Yankees

Following up a nice three game set against the Indians that unfortunately concluded with a nine run defeat, we can only hope that this defeat has the same result that our LAST loss to the Indians produced. Following a 10-2 loss at home to the Indians in April the Tigers went on to win six of their next seven games. If they can do that once more it will show far more than that set against the Athletics and Mariners did... As the next two opponents are the mighty New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

Coming up first is a four game set against the perennial eastern champions, the Yankees...

Game 1: Jeremy Bonderman vs. Randy Johnson
Game 2: Roman Colon vs. Aaron Small
Game 3: Nate Robertson vs. Mike Mussina
Game 4: Justin Verlander vs. Chien Ming-Wang

I think that the most interesting matchup, much as I did in the Seattle series with Verlander-Hernandez... is the duel between the two young future ace-potentiates. Verlander-Ming-Wang could be a matchup between the one day aces of these two staffs.

If we pull out a 2/2 split of the series I will be satisfied but far from happy. 3/4 will leave me happy with the outcome of the series, and an outright sweep would get me smiling regardless of the results of the Boston series to follow!

Re: June's 1st Test: Tigers/Yankees

Well, the sweep can't happen... We've already lost the first game. The reason I was hoping for a 2/2 split is because under normal circumstances I can see the Tigers taking two of three from the Yankees with the way they've been playing. Unfortunately tonights game is not normal circumstances. Roman Colon is pitching, and to say that I don't have much confidence in his abilities as a pitcher... is an understatement.

Who knows, maybe he'll pleasantly surprise me.

Re: June's 1st Test: Tigers/Yankees

Only took one of four. Really sad. Until the last couple of innings the Tigers played like Kittens. They played like they were in awe. It was... sad. But at least they finished it out strong, and now they go into Boston on a confident note, which is a very important thing, especially for a team as young and prone to emotion as Detroit is.

Re: June's 1st Test: Tigers/Yankees

As long as he's keeping his BA over .300 I'm satisfied with his production as low as he is in the lineup... we all know he isn't a 40 homer guy, that early season power binge was flukey. Not only that, but it messed with him. He started swinging for the fences and went into a slump... now he's trying to poke everything and its made him tentative just to keep his batting average up.

He needs to start swinging with certainty again, he's so cautious...
