Tigers/Guardians Pennant Race Thread

9 wins in a row for the Guardians, longest streak since they set the AL record of 22 a few years ago.

Hard to believe it’s been nearly 7 years already.

Detroit is now 15 games behind first place Cleveland, and 15 games ahead of last place Chicago.

It is hard to believe that the Guardians are 22 games over .500 when you consider that 3 of the 5 starting pitchers that they have been using in the rotation all year have ERA’s over 5. This from a team which has had great starting pitching over the last 30 years. This is undoubtably the worst starting rotation is all those seasons. Logan Allen somehow has an 8-2 record with his over 5 ERA. He does lead the majors in run support.

A great friend and MU grad/frat bro is a long time Chicago Sox fan. He was really struggling this season. However, he has decided to try to enjoy the ineptitude of the Sox and seeing how many ways they can find a way to lose. A great attitude when one’s team is a dumpster fire!
As a lifelong Tiger fan, I’ve been there. Still remember watching/listening to every game of a 19 game losing streak!

Yep, the Guardians offense has really taken off this season - even a good bit of power that had been lacking for years. Amazing start with a first time manager and the youngest roster in MLB (or 2nd youngest - very close last it was quoted). And this great start with 2 of their top 3 starting pitchers out for the first half - Bieber after just 2 starts and Gavin Williams won’t get to see MLB action for the first time this year until next week coming off the IR.

Benetti just casually referred to “the first Noel at-bat” during Jhonkensy’s second at-bat.
