The Tigers’ game was rained out tonight in Baltimore, so they end up with a split of what turned out to be a two game series. I’m annoyed because I picked up Justin Verlander in my fantasy baseball league because he was set to have two starts (we have a one week lock), but now with everyone being pushed back, that’s not going to happen. In fact with rain in the forecast and Cleveland just down the street, we might see some more rain delays, if not postponed games.
This should be an interesting upcoming series. The Indians have been struggling, but they’re still a dangerous team. If the Tigers can manage two out of three, they can further push the Indians down and give them some early breathing room by making it a two team race out of the gate.
Note to self – If you’re going to throw up a section with the AL Central standings, try to keep it updated. I thought it would be a cool function but I’ll try to make a better effort to keep it current.
I’m going to be doing an occasional piece for Creative Sports, a fantasy baseball website. Once or twice a week I’ll be writing up something on the Tigers from a fantasy perspective and my first piece should go out tomorrow. I recommend you check out the site if you’re into fantasy baseball.
