MLB NY Yankees and Detroit Tigers

Share |

Most eyes across the nation are fixated on the NBA playoffs, but MLB has entered its second month of play in the 2008 season and there’s a fantastic series set to go starting Friday night. Now, both the NY Yankees and Detroit Tigers have gotten off to poor starts to their campaigns, but that doesn’t mean good baseball won’t be played in this weekend series.

The Yankees enter this series 17-18 overall and 4.5-games in back of the AL East Division leading Boston Red Sox, while the Detroit Tigers come in a disappointing 15-20 overall and 3.5-games in back of the AL Central Division leading Minnesota Twins. The Yankees have posted a .500 mark in their 18 games on the road this season, while the Tigers haven’t protected their house like Manager Jim Leyland would like winning just seven of their 17 home games overall.

Friday night’s match-up pits Kei Igawa who was just called up from the Minors to take on Kenny Rogers who’s posted a 2-3 record and 6.27 ERA in his seven starts this season. Look for some balls to get smashed around Comerica in that one.

The second game of the series finds the Yankees Darrell Rasner, filling in for the injured Phillip Hughes, squaring off against the Tigers Jeremy Bonderman whose 2-3 with a 4.17 ERA to start the year. Calling all under bettors! Calling all under bettors!

Sunday’s finale is a match-up of lefties as the Yankees send Andy Pettitte and his 3.77 ERA to the bump to square off against Nate Robertson and his bloated 6.64 ERA. If the price is right, the Yanks look to be the more attractive option here.
