If you are a Tigers fan like I am you have to be absolutely disgusted that the season has come down to one game to determine the AL Central and a spot in the playoffs. The Tigers could have easily had the division wrapped up a month ago but they have blown game after game. If you ask me I won’t be happy or sad either way. The Twins have been on fire for the last month and have been playing like they want it. However in my opinion whoever wins the AL Central won’t last long in the playoffs. The Tigers or Twins have to face the Yankees who happen to be one of the hottest teams in baseball right now.
I am just so angry at the Tigers right now. Leyland needs to go. Granderson, and Everett really need to go as well. It’s time for the spotlight shine on guys like Ramon Santiago and Ryan Raburn who actually produce when they are at the plate. Dusty Ryan is wasted space on the roster along with Don Kelly. The pitchers that can stay are Verlander, Jackson and Porcello. The rest of the rotation and relief pitchers are debatable. This team looked so good on paper at the beginning of the year but I guess you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. People like Armando Galarraga,and Jarrod Washburn have been absolute let downs this year.
Okay so maybe I am blowing things way out of proportions and might just be overreacting a little bit but for crying out loud we have had the lead since May only to have it come down to one game. Unfortunately we have to go to Minnesota where we have not played good at all year long. I honestly do not like our chances on Tuesday. I guess we will all have to tune in to find out what happens. Until then just sit and pray that the Tigers don’t embarrass themselves.
