Not a Good Start
In baseball, where even bad teams win 40% of their games, you normally can't expect to sweep a series. However, a series against the Tigers, one of the worst baseball teams in the history of professional baseball, is an exception. The Twins have gone 11-1 against Detroit, and KC 10-2. The Sox are only 9-8. If the Sox could just consistently beat this one crappy team, they would be in first by five games.
I had hoped the Sox could go 4-2 on this road trip and it's still a possibility. But losing another game to the Tigers would not only be a disappointment, but also quite an embarassment.
