Detroit Tigers Links: Ian Kinsler is already making enemies & the next Max Scherzer

It didn't take Ian Kinsler long to start making enemies in Detroit, Mike Matheny blazed a trail for Brad Ausmus to become Detroit's manager, and who is the next Max Scherzer? (Hint: The answer is no one. Because Max Scherzer rules all areas of life.)

Waiting for the breakdown on how they compare in Twitter awesomness. Because no one will be the next Scherzer if that's the case.

Tigers tweets:

If Josh Hamilton is calling you out, you know you're in trouble.

Justin Verlander has entirely too much power. Because he got verified in exactly 0.5 seconds after this tweet was sent.

One more time? Sure why not.
