This is going to be a tough series. I don't like the Twins chances if they can't pick up tonight's game.

We have already faced Shields, Price and Sale among others. Its not like we are going to face Verlander and Kershaw 3 out of 4 games for the next 3 weeks. Lets face it. We are underdogs every series we play until we match up with Houston so these teams shouldn't be any more intimidating than anyone else. Pitch well and play well and let the chips fall where they may. I have found that being the underdog can give you some edge. Fielder was the difference in several games in the past. Lineup is good but not quite as intimidating as it was.

I'm liking this team. Good energy, improved approach at plate, hope that starters come around. Maybe a good run is in its future.

After taking 2 of 3 from Tampa - doing the same against the Tigers would definitely give this team some mojo, maybe short lived, but definitely a reason for fans to come to the park and check out this club.

Not that much afraid of Sanchez of Verlander and Sanchez, but afraid that our starters will wake up the Tigers line up. Well, and afraid of Verlander and Sanchez too.

Tigers over-under from Vegas this year was 89.5. That's after winning 93 last year and having a Pythag of 100. They might be a little vulnerable this year.

Not so good game. But early.

A share of 1st and TWO games over .500 on the line tomorrow. It's like September in May!

Gibson certainly seems to be sliding into the ace slot; Price last time and now Verlander. It will be good to see how he responds after a tough outing in Tampa.
