Cleveland at Detroit, 3:55 PM (FOX)
Cleveland: CC Sabathia (3.51 ERA, 33 PRC)
Detroit: Justin Verlander (2.68 ERA, 31 PRC)
Two of the three best teams in the AL play with first place on the line. Yeah, even FOX and ESPN figured out that it might be a good idea to pay attention to flyover country. From today's PD:
"Maybe we'll get away from Boston and New York being on ESPN and 'SportsCenter' every day," said Borowski. "It's like baseball doesn't exist except for those two teams.
"Every other team gets two minutes. Those two teams get half the program."
In less happier news, Adam Miller will visit a hand specialist next Tuesday for some MRIs. His last start was scrubbed after he had some discomfort in his middle finger warming up.
Also, Jake Westbrook is on schedule to come back by mid-June.
