Twins vs. Tigers

Tonight is the start of a big series for the Twins, a three gamer against the first-place Tigers. The Tigers have some big bats. In fact, their line-up is strong from top to bottom. It would be a good idea for the Twins to take two-of-three from Detroit if they plan to make up some of the ground which separates them.

At the All-Star break, the consensus amongst the talking heads is that Detroit is the best team in the majors right now. Even President Bush said last night that the Tigers are going to the World Series. So, it's time for them to take a fall back to earth.
