Editor's Note: The Tigers-White Sox GameThread will be posted immediately after the conclusion of this ballgame.
Since Tiger Town has a strong interest in what happens this afternoon at the Metrodome, we thought an Open Thread might be a good idea.
How will you pitch, Zack Greinke? A nation (of Tigers fans) turns its lonely eyes to you. (Woo woo woo.) But can he shut down the Twins in two consecutive games? In his last start, Greinke held the Twins to one run over seven innings, with eight strikeouts. That was at Kansas City. Will things be different at the Metrodome?
A Minnesota loss reduces Detroit's magic number to one. Of course, that doesn't affect what the Tigers need to do tonight against the White Sox.
