The Tigers return to Detroit for Game 3 of the ALCS after a heartbreaking loss on Sunday night, but they do so with their horse on the mound.
The Rangers-Tigers game on Thursday at Rangers Ballpark should be a hot ticket as two of the game's premier right-handed pitchers will take the hill.
One of the best pitchers in the game, Detroit ace Justin Verlander, is reportedly considering joining Team USA in the World Baseball Classic, where he'd join Derek Holland in the starting rotation.
With plenty of time to rest up and set their pitching rotation, the Detroit Tigers should be a slam dunk to win the World Series.
Ron Washington has apparently named his starting pitcher for the American League squad, and it's no surprise.
Neftali Feliz and all of his potential have a lot to work on as a starting pitcher, but he made great strides in a losing effort on Saturday night.
Justin Verlander, and no one else, stands between the Texas Rangers and their second straight AL pennant.
What is the most unlikely ALDS opponent for the Rangers is also the most concerning for Rangers fans.
