It's the last off-day on the regular season schedule. After today, it's 13 straight games to the end of the season, 10 of which will be against the White Sox and Twins. The Tigers won the finale of their weekend series at Minnesota, preventing this from becoming an Off-Day Therapy open thread.
Detroit has a three-game lead in the AL Central. Their magic number to clinch is 11. So how are you feeling about the rest of this season?
Let's do some "BYOBYB," the open thread where you can discuss anything you'd like. Possible topics could include:
- Should Jim Leyland just make Ryan Raburn the full-time left fielder?
- Would you like to see Alex Avila get some at-bats as the DH against right-handed pitching?
- Has Nate Robertson already pitched his way into a possible postseason rotation, if a fourth starter is necessary?
Are you interested in a possible BYB Meet-Up next season? If so, post a comment in our thread and weigh in on a possible date. And if you're new to the BYB neighborhood, say hello in our Introduce Yourself thread.
Of course, with the White Sox and Twins beginning a three-game series tonight, this might also turn into something of a GameThread for that.
It's up to you, BYB Bunch. Enjoy your off-day!
