Three Degrees Of Pat Caputo: Three Reasons The AL Central Race Isn’t Over Yet
By: Pat Caputo
Two games up with six to go, the Tigers seem to be a lock to capture the AL Central over the slumping second-place Chicago White Sox. This is why the race is not necessarily over.
1. The Tigers are seven games below .500 on the road. Their last six games this season are at Minnesota and Kansas City.
2. Max Scherzer is going to miss his next scheduled tonight and concern about issues with his right and throwing shoulder are growing.
3. The Tigers have lacked consistency all season and have tended to play down to the level of their competition.
