I wouldn't start counting my Tigers out of a playoff series with NY or Boston just yet. First, let's make the playoffs. We're not in until we're in (see: 2009). Once we're in, I recall 2006 when the entire world outside of Detroit wrote off the Tigers against the Yankees. We crushed them in 4 games on our way to the pennant and the World Series.
With Verlander on our side, we ALWAYS have a chance. They'll set it up where he can pitch 2 games in the ALDS and 3 games in each series after that. The man is not only the best pitcher in baseball, he's also a workhorse who wants the ball. Gotta love JV35!
