I figured the Tigers and Twins would split the series in Detroit. CHECK. I also figured they would be tied at the end of the season. CHECK. However, I wanna be dead-wrong in my prediciton for Tuesday.
The Twins are hot right now. Hot teams can go deep into the post-season. The Tigers really showed some life Sunday, but I fear it’s too little, too late. Tuesday’s game is in the Metrodome – home of perhaps the greates home-field advantage in professional sports. That place will be loud, the fans will be out for blood. The Tigers may need to steal a page out of the Twins playbook, who stole one from the Cobra Kai dojo: “Strike first, strike hard, no mercy, sir!” It’s not as if the Tigers have never won in the dome; but STILL…
My Take on Cabrera’s face: I could care less bout this topic; except I was taken aback at how quick Jim Leyland was to shoot down any questions about. My guess is that he got in a lockerroom scuffle. Ball players treat the locker room like Las Vegas: What happens there, stays there”.
More as it develops….I need to get me some Twinkies.
