Heading out to breakfast and then the track soon, so here's what I got.
Pitching Matchup: Freddy Garcia vs. Max Scherzer.
3 Things to Watch For:
1) Tigers' Approach vs. Freddy- swing early and try to beat him up on the slow fastball or patience and let him use all his junk?
2) Joe's Hook with Freddy- well-rested bullpen and CC coming back tomorrow. Joe might not give Freddy a lot of slack on his line if he starts to struggle.
3) Robbie Cano- He looked completely locked in last night. What will he do today for an encore? 2 more HRs? 3? Will Detroit even pitch to him with a weak A-Rod hitting behind him?
Player To Watch: Mark Teixeira
The stance and swing from the left side looked better last night, and he's facing another righty today. If he keeps using all fields, Teix can get back to being the dangerous hitter he's always been.
Game starts at 3:07 Eastern/2:07 Central. I'll miss the whole thing.
