Everyone needs to remember, the Tigers are getting fat vs. the weak sisters. Granted they have played well against CLE -- great in fact. But the real test comes starting on the 26th -- Yankees, Red Sox, White Sox, Blue Jays all in a row.
We'll see what they are made of at the end of that 2+ week trial. Be shocked if Jones makes it through that buzzsaw.

I don't see everyone's logic on this impending switch to Rodney, other than the fact that most here hope to inherit Rod. or have stashed Rodney away. Until Jones goes down or implodes, I don't see old school Leyland making that change. He's coached the same way for how many years?? Peace.
