Carlos Guillen, who has stumbled to a .182 average, should be very welcoming of Chicago pitching. Guillen led all current Tigers with a .326 average and an on base percentage of .456.
21. San francisco Giants – San Francisco fans can relax about Matt Cain, who has put up numbers very similar to previous seasons but simply doesn’t have the wins or ERA to show for it.
24. Minnesota Twins – The big question in Minnesota is if Ron Gardenhire will keep his job. It’s unlikely the Twins will show much improvement for another couple of years.
It’s no secret that Miguel Cabrera is off to an incredible start, but the Tigers are also getting major contributions from Brandon Inge, who appears to be reborn in his return to third base. Last season, Inge hit .263 in 13 games against the sale jerseys, striking out 12 times and registering only five RBIs. Inge’s performance could play an enormous role on the outcome of this series.
Tuesday night was an excellent showcase for Chris. As the game progresses, the American League ended up shutting out the National League 3-0 with the National League only putting together three hits for the game. The winning pitcher was Sale. Come October, because of the victory, the American League will have home field advantage for the World Series. As it stands right now, that may have even less action from Chicago teams then the All-Star game featured.
Choo is also the first Indian to end the season with an on-base percentage of .400 or best, finishing at .401. The most recent Tribe hitter in that club was Manny Ramirez (.457 in 2000).
15. Washington Nationals – The Nationals are a better team than they showed for much of the season, but don’t buy into the way they played in September, which featured a lot of games against their terrible division.
Thus. I decided to do a little research. I consider myself a true sports fan. As you all know, I have teams that i am partial to and teams that I root against. However, I always root for tough fought clean competition.
