  • Phil Coke: "We're way too good to have this record!"
  • Futile is the word to describe the Tigers' offense of late.
  • Miguel Cabrera vs. Fernando Rodney.
  • The Tigers retaliate and Joe Maddon mentions Mario Puzo's "The Godfather."
  • Max Scherzer is 12-0 and the value of pitcher wins.
  • Justin Verlander confirms he's trying to correct a mechanical issue.
  • Everyone is surprised Jose Valverde accepted an assignment to Triple-A Toledo.
