feels bad about the whole thing, and I don't think it's fair that his manager and his teammates were so eager to throw him under a bus afterwards (he is a rookie, after all). Especially, as Patrick Reusse speculated on his show this morning, if he was encouraged by someone in the dugout to retaliate for Marcus Thames' questionable takeout slide (it does seem odd that Mijares, who isn't known as a headhunter, would suddenly get upset because the Tigers were running on him).
Leave it to the Twins to win just enough games in the series to keep their faint playoff hopes alive but not enough to actually control their own destiny. Twins Geek has a great preview of both the Twins/Royals and Tigers/White Sox series, which will settle the Central division once and for all. Probably. I don't know, I just have this feeling that, because such a big deal was made over the potential conflict with the Vikings/Packers MNF game should there be a need for a one-game playoff, there will in fact be a need for a one-game playoff. It would be a fitting end to a season in which the Tigers have tried their best to give the division away, while the Twins stubbornly refused to take it.
