The Twins and the Tigers have played 161 games to a draw and go into the last day of the season tied without the safety net of a Wild Card.
Now here comes the Red Sox fan and Yankee hater coming to the surface:
I want the Tigers to win and win today.
The scenario I came up with, Verlander winning two games and A. J. Burnett choking, can only work if the Tigers win.
And as likable as the Twins are, there is NO WAY that team is beating the Yankees.
So let's see a happy Jim Leyland and have a Tigers team on an emotional high with nothing to lose going into the Bronx.
Again, the Tigers need to know they are playing for petty Red Sox fans!
