We've got two buses, Coke and a monstrous rotation.
I'm Al Beaton, aka Big Al, co-managing editor of Bless You Boys and producer of the Bless You Boys Podcast. I'm a veteran of the Detroit blogosphere, writing online since 2006.

I'm also old enough to be your father, so get off my lawn!
It was deja vu, just change the name of the pitcher from Verlander to Sanchez. For the second time in the series, the Rangers take a big lead early while the Tigers starter is unable to get out the third inning.
You wanted a pitcher's duel in Texas? You got one. But it wouldn't be Verlander and Darvish dueling. It was Rick Porcello and the Tigers bullpen, along with Nick Tepesch and the Rangers relievers, putting on a show.
The Astros off the schedule, the Tigers tumble as a new team takes the top spot in our weekly power rankings.
Two bad starts does not a washed up bum make.
The much hyped pitcher's duel with Yu Darvish never materialized. The Rangers roughed up a hard throwing but extremely wild Justin Verlander for eight runs in his second straight sub par start.
No longer trusted to throw strikes in late inning situations, the Tigers have optioned Al Alburquerque to Triple-A Toledo, replacing him with Evan Reed.
One of these days Jim Leyland may realize using Phil Coke against a right-handed bat is not a good idea. Today wasn't the day, the Astros rallying for two ninth inning runs to beat the Tigers.
The Tigers would rally from an early deficit, roaring back with six unanswered runs to pull away from the Astros for a second straight night.
What's the he best prescription for a losing streak? A series against the woeful Houston Astros. The Tigers used a six run fourth inning, highlighted by Andy Dirks' grand slam, to beat the AL's worst team.
