1.5 Games Up

Whew. Good night last night with the Twins falling to the O's and the Tigers pulling out a win in Kansas City. Everything is so important now with only 8 games left, so hopefully the Tigs can continue their dominance over the Royals. Unfortunately for the Tigers though, despite the fact that they got a W last night, KC has their sights set on being a spoiler.

The Tigers have some good scenarios playing out. Placido Polanco is going to play this evening, coming off the DL following a seperated shoulder. Mike Maroth could get back in the flow of things going into the playoffs. The pitching continues to perform (despite the blown save the other day). Overall I'm a happy camper, even though I can't predict what will happen over the next week and a half. All I know is that it's going to be fun.
