Monday: Tigers vs. Rangers

The lineup is pretty standard, but the Tigers are obviously hoping the results are different than what they had over the weekend in Cleveland. Manager Jim Leyland, anticipating questions about the home-road splits, ran off a slew of statistics this afternoon. He couldn’t offer a reason for it, not even after checking with coaches to see if there’s any difference in the home and road routines that would suggest the dropoff, but he had numbers. Interestingly, though, the Tigers hit better on the road (.261) than the Major League road average (.256)

Dan and Jim just said Inge is having x-rays on his wrist/arm.

Former Tiger, Trenor has better numbers than Avilla, who would guess?
Bonderman has been the most consistent apart from Verlander. But today is not his day.
Boesch needs a couple of days in the bench .

RW again? you must be kidding
