I simply don't know what to think anymore. These guys are amazing. Enjoy it while it lasts, and may it last long.

Beltin' Shelton is their best hitter, no? But who is the better pitcher? Verlander or Zumaya? I am way to cynical to be this giddy.
Let's suppose Rogers shuts down his old team. We then go home undefeated and host the struggling White Sux. I have to stop. Too much too soon. :-D :-D :-D

is Shelton still hitting out of the 8 hole?

Verlander will be a stud, and he started his season off on a great note.

I love a lot of what I've seen beyond just the record, but I still want to see them face a real team. The Rangers are not a good team, especially their pitching and the Royals are just plain awful. That said, from what I've seen, I see no reason the Tigers will suddenly shrivel up versus the good teams. I don't want to say too much positive or too much negative as I tend to be a bit superstitious, so I'll leave it at that.

Well said, but VS. the Rangers and The Royals last year we couldnt even claim we won the series. This year we might sweep both. Major improvement.

Sadly, I can envision them shriveling. They come home to a cold park with the pressure of being at home against their two top rivals if they want to measure up. It should be a great challenge for them. The White Sux aren't playing well, but the Injuns later in the week are. Should be a good measuring stick to see what this team is made of.

Of course regardless of what they do, it is still very early to pass any judgements on this team.
