Detroit Tigers AL Central champs for the 2nd year in a row. Whew! It has not been a pretty season. But a win is a win is a win.
There is time to rest the pitchers and rethink strategy.
The Tigers have this problem of playing at the level of their opponent. Thus, we have lost--big time--to some of the worst teams in baseball. And, we have won games some of the best. So, for the playoffs, this might be a good omen.
So glad that Porcello got his Win Number Ten. He needed a boost in his self esteem after pitching so well in previous games but not receiving any run support.
Will we see Don Kelly on the mound on Wednesday night?
The post game celebration was fun. Just before his interview, the TV camera caught Jim Leyland snuffing out a quick (probably illegal inside the ballpark) smoke. Leyland certainly gave an emotional interview.. A modest man.
