Are Tigers Underdogs Again?

     Same thing, Texas Rangers have home field advantage.  The visitor won three out of five in the Tigers vs. Yankees series, so it's not like visiting teams in baseball can't win games on the road, especially in the playoffs.  But everyone wants a home field advantage.

     I picked Texas originally to win the World Series and I'm sticking with that.  The Tigers can win this series because they are a team of many contributors and that showed against New York.  Whether they will trend in this series the same way as they did against the Yankees remains to be seen.   But the initial formula is key-- get out of Texas with a split at the worst.  Then it's a best of five and the Tigers have the home field edge.  Can Justin Verlander win game one Saturday night?  That's big too because if he does and the Tigers win game two then it's very possible the series will end in Detroit and the Tigers can celebrate on their own field heading to the World Series-- and the Tigers would not have home field advantage in that one either.
