With the Boston Red Sox set to begin a three-game series tonight in Detroit, Neil Keefe of NESN.com asked if I could answer some questions about the Tigers for their "Opposing Thoughts" series. And he came up with some good ones that had me searching for answers.
Topics include Placido Polanco's slow start, expectations for Dontrelle Willis, Justin Verlander's revival, the unexpected success of Edwin Jackson and Rick Porcello, Magglio Ordonez's power (or lack thereof), and the Tigers' keys to winning this series.
You can read the full article here. I'd be curious how you guys would've answered the same questions.
Thanks to Neil for looking me up. Answering those questions was fun (and a little more difficult, in some cases, than I anticipated). Check out his work at NESN.com.
