Regardless if its St. Louis or San Francisco, Detroit looks tough to beat right now.

They will certainly be favored over either NL team.

Agreed

The challenge would be to some how get their starters out early and have them use their bullpen for more innings. I was hoping the Tigers would win in 7 rather than a sweep so they would have to burn Verlander in Game 7. That way, he wouldn't be availabe until Game 3 of WS and then only pitch Game 7 of WS if it get there.

Now Verlander could start Game 1, Game 5, and close out the 8th & 9th innings of a potential Game 7. That will be tough!

The Tigers rotation is more than Verlander

Anibal Sanchez
Max Scherzer
Doug Fister

All quality starters.

All quality starters.

All of those guys can be either good, or bad. Nothing anywhere near as consistent as Verlander.
Scherzer when he's on is almost as scary as Verlander

They're winning cause those guys have caught fire at the right time. Tigers are avg like 3 runs a game
Verlander 0.74 era, Sanchez / Fister 1.35 era and Max didn't allow a run in his outing

If the bats wake up
