This is a funny post. If you are talking healty staffs, then the Tigers would have a considerable edge in pitching staffs in a seven game series. They’d have a completely healthy Rogers, Robertson, Zumaya, and Rodney (all of which are currently on or have spent a good amount of time on the DL). Miller would go to the pen and their four starters would be Verlander, Rogers, Bonderman, and Robertson with Miller, Zumaya, Rodney, and Jones among others in the pen. I realize a healthy Schilling, Beckett, and Zuki are good, but who the hell would be the fourth unless you plan on short rest, which would give the Tigers a big edge there because they easily go four deep if not a complete five deep (if they elect to keep Miller in the rotation).

and isnt zumaya their best reliever coming off a pretty significant injury to his pitching hand. I think the Sox will be very difficult to beat this post season this year. and det and bos offense is pretty equal imo. Manny, Ortiz, Drew, and Lugo are all struggling and performing far below their career avgs. If they can turn it around in the least the World Series will be a walk in the park for the Sox.

I also get a kick out of you saying their offenses are a wash. Go check the team stats on MLB for viewing pleasure and valid information. Rogers has had a long career. Hope that career ERA you suggest doesn't punish him for some bad performances 15 years ago. Last year, he faced Boston once going 7 innings, 1 ER, 5 Hits, 1 BB, 7 K's. Didn't check Robertson's recent history versus Boston, but if you want to go career numbers, maybe the Tigers will throw Miller in as the #4 and put Robertson in the pen. What is Miller's career numbers versus the Sox? Paps is definitely better then Jones, but you have to get to the 9th with the lead for him to be of any value. Check out how Mariano Riviera faired last year in the playoffs versus the Tigers. He pitched a wopping one inning.
