The Home Team Vs. The Best Team

Today is the first day of The Rangers and Tigers series in Detroit. I’m not as torn as i thought I would be. I always root for my home team first but I know the Rangers are the better team. On paper it should be a closer match up then it will be in reality. The Texans are not just playing great baseball but they are killing the ball. Rangers had their first loss on Saturday the first game of a double-header. It was like they lost one just to get it out-of-the-way because they turned right around and killed the O’s in the second game 13-1. The Tigers on the other hand are making all the same mistakes as last year. Pitchers aren’t making it into the late innings and the bullpen is no relief. the biggest difference is we can’t even take a home series! Some might say the season hasn’t really started and baseball is a marathon not a sprint but there’s a difference between a slump and playing bad. The Tigers are playing bad and unless they step it up will be at the bottom of the weakest division in baseball. The Rangers will go all the way mark my words. They are not only playing well but are on a mission to prove last season was no fluck.

On This Day In History

1928 On Opening Day, Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker are in the starting lineup for the Philadelphia A’s. It is the future Hall of Famers first game as teammates.
