Guillen for MVP and a Winning Streak

It looks like the Tigers are going to win their second in a row. After taking the opener against the Devil Rays, the Tigers had two days off because of the hurricane before coming back and taking care of the Royals in the opener (I’m assuming the Tigers will win, because they’re up 7-3 with one out in the ninth).

The win will put the Tigers nine games below .500. It was nice to see Will Ledezma throw a nice game, and Omar Infante had a three run double to break the game open in the eighth.

Aaron Gleeman has a well put together piece at Hardball Times about the AL MVP race. It’s nice to see Carlos Guillen get some recognition as he’s right in the mix of Aaron’s column. I was surprised to see he leads the AL in WARP with a 9.4, just ahead of Miguel Tejada. If you’ve never checked out Hardball Times, there’s a ton of information there, and something for just about everyone.

The Tigers won. Berroa hit a solo shot to put a little fear into me, but Gary Knotts got the three inning save.

I hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend. Three and a half weeks left in the season, so I’m hoping they’re good ones.
