As a hardcore Tiger fan I've got to be the first to say that I won't be surprised if the series against the A's goes a sweep either way or if it goes a full five. The A's are tuff and the Tiger bats go silent a little too often for my liking. I do, however, think Detroit has the best starting staff going. Scherzer, Verlander, Sanchez will be tuff for ANYONE to beat. Detroit just might not score enough to win if the opposition pitching is good enuff.
