Tough times for the Tigers

The headline in the Detroit Free Press sports section today was:


Nate Robertson pitched 8.2 scoreless innings against Cleveland yesterday. Joel Zumaya (you remember him, Joba 1.0) then gave up three runs in the 10th.

The Tigers are not the same with Gary Sheffield in the middle of the lineup. They also lack the pitching depth they had last season.

Now the dreaded Yankees come to town. This is a huge, huge series for the Tigers. With Cleveland at Kansas City, this could be a lost weekend for them. They trail the Indians by 2.5 in the AL Central.

This is one of those series where the Yankees need to be relentless with the OPB and grind down a desperate team.
