Tigers: SP Max Scherzer

Twins: SP Kevin Correia

CF Presley
2B Dozier
3B Plouffe
DH Doumit
C Pinto
1B Parmelee
RF Herrmann
LF Mastroianni
SS Florimon

Things to Think About:

1. Think about Max Scherzer... 20-3 is a pretty good record. If he doesn't win the Cy Young Award this year... You might as well give Bobby McFerrin a Grammy for "Don't worry be Happy"

2. Think about Clinching a division Title... The Tigers can clinch tonight with a win or Cleveland loss... They should be motivated for that... The Twins have to hang tough and "NOT ON MY TURF". Of course when the Twins say "Not on my Turf"... it doesn't sound like Clint Eastwood... It probably sounds more like Tina Fey.

3. Think about the stars aligning... Scherzer Cy Young Award Winner and the Tigers a win from clinching... It sure seems like there isn't much sense in the Twins showing up tonight to play. Foregone conclusion it seems... Well... We've been here before and those foregone conclusions are never foregone in baseball.

4. Think about 1,000 Wins... 2 more wins for Gardenhire to reach 1,000. 5 games left to play. This will be interesting.

5. Think about the Mighty Pen... I don't write with a pen much anymore... I type with a lot of ellipses mainly. But when I write with a pen... I'm always aware of the old saying... "The Pen is mightier then the Sword". This is true... Especially if the Sword is really really small and the Pen has a very sharp tip.



3. Think about
A Skeleton walks into a bar and says... "Give me a beer... And a mop".

It follows that a Picture of a Pen is mightier than 1000 Words about a Sword. I am not sure what the equivalence ratio is if instead you have 2000 Words, or only a Picture with the left half cut off or something.

Checking the score... looks like the game hasn't started yet. It's only 1-0 Detroit.

It says a lot about a season when a fanbase is glad to get out of the first inning only down by a run.

An fun undertaking in which the outcome has not been predetermined.

So...I withdraw the question.

Actually ... I had just had a discussion with my sister about her Sisyphusian or Herculean efforts. So it was fresh on the brain. Otherwise I would never had said such a thing.

On the bright side, after 1 inning Scherzer doesn't look dominant. Could this be an opportunity?
