Sports: Detroit Tigers

on August 23, 2010

Game Date: 8/23/2010

Game Time: 7:05 PM ET

Team Match Up: Kansas City Royals (53-72) @ Detroit Tigers (61-63)

Pitching Match Up: Bruce Chen (8-6) v. Jeremy Bonderman (6-9)

Where to Watch/Listen: TV – FSKC HD (Kansas City), FS-D HD (Detroit).  Radio – KCSP 610 (Kansas City), WXYT 97.1 FM/1270 AM (Detroit).

The Tigers are coming off a three game sweep of the Cleveland Indians.  Kansas City is fighting with the Indians for the last place in the division.  Statistically, this game should be relatively easy for the Tigers.  Yes, maybe Chen’s record is a bit better than Bonderman’s at the moment, but pitchers records never tell the complete story.  A starting pitcher’s record will never show how he did in every game he has played.  It seems as though the Tigers are getting the short end of the stick as of late in umpiring, however that’s not reason enough for their record.  Two more wins, and they will have a .500 record.  I still believe they are better than their record leads on.  However, one cannot forget that Kansas City has earned 53 wins, and not by beating up on weaker teams.  One of the biggest mistakes made in sports is to write off a game as an easy win.  I tend to watch the regular season in a fairly skeptic way, so all I will say is that game should be a good one, and the Tigers should not be written off just yet.
