Alright so it's a slow Tuesday afternoon, the Tigers have game 2 against the Rays tonight, and the Indians are playing game 1 of a day/night doubleheader right now. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty excited about the fact that we could lose tonight and still increase our lead over the Indians (although they're currently winning 4-3 in the 9th... EDIT: Dang, Seattle takes the lead in the 9th, then Choo hits a walk-off, three-run homer for Cleveland. Oh well).
Some topics for discussion:
- Rick Porcello: do you think he can turn things around come October? Was July a fluke, or does he have what it takes to be a post-season contributor this year?
- Catcher depth: what should the Tigers do to get Avila some rest while Martinez's knee continues to heal? Is Avila a robot, thus making that question a moot point?
- AL Central title: for the Tigers fans, are you more worried about the Indians, or the ChiSox? For Sox and Indians fans, do you think either of your teams have what it takes to overcome a 5.5 game deficit?
