Winning the Easy Ones

I know on any given day, even the worst team in baseball can beat the best. It happens. But with the Tigers loss last night, the season series with KC now sits at 7-10, so regardless of the outcome of the next two games, Detroit will have a losing record against the Royals. And this is one of the big reasons why the Tigers stand on the outside looking in, and are not in contention in the AL West.

To put it in even better perspective, the Royals have a winning record against only one team this year, and that team is the Tigers. Winning the games you should win is imperative for a winning franchise. Now I don’t expect them to go 19-0, but there’s no reason we shouldn’t expect something like 12-7 against the worst team in the American League. Three to five more wins (depending on how these last two fall out) would go a long way and mean we’d be at .500, or at least a whole lot closer.

The Tigers face Zack Greinke tonight, who simply manhanded the Tigers last week. Hopefully they’ve been watching the tape. He’ll be going up against Jason Johnson.

Oakland’s three straight losses have made the AL West a lot more interesting, and with Houston’s big run, there’s now five teams within 2 1/2 games of the NL Wild Card. Every game counts.
