We will see Cleveland, the Yankees, Toronto, Red Sox, and the White Sox (not necessarily in that order) during that stretch. Now those are the games I've been looking forward to. One strong offensive team after another.
Let's hope that stretch doesn't destroy out season. It is grueling and the pitching will really show it's mettle. I don't expect us to come out of that run with a winning record, but I would like to be close to .500 and be in most of those games.........then I look again. The Yankees, Injuns, and Toronto aren't impressing to this stage of the season. So why couldn't be hang with them?
The White Sux and Red Sux are going to be a problem. If we can win 40% of those games and 60% of the others we could walk away with a winning record for that stretch and solidify our position as one of the best teams in baseball.........then I look again. Did I really say best teams in baseball in reference to the Tigers?
So we see how important those games will be, eh? But first those pesky Twinkies are coming to town followed by fellow surprise team, the Reds. There really are few easy games.
