Tigers Favored Over Oakland In ALDS

Justin VerlanderOakland might have a better bullpen and a better bench, and they match Detroit better on offense than most people would expect.

Playoff baseball, though, often comes down to pitching, and no one in baseball has a better rotation than the Tigers.

Last season, Verlander, Scherzer, Sanchez and Fister blew through the American League playoffs, and the award-caliber seasons from Scherzer and Sanchez make up for Verlander’s slip from superstar to merely very good.
