Detroit Tigers: Look to pull away in American League Central

Despite playing in the worst division in the Major League Baseball, the Detroit Tigers haven't been able to pull away from the pack so far this season. Sitting at 18-11, the Tigers are up on the Kansas City Royals by just 0.5 games in the AL Central. We don't expect the race to be close at all come seasons end as the Tigers were our preseason pick  to win the American League Championship. In fact, beating up the likes of the Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians during the first half of May should have the Tigers comfortably in first in short order.

Strikeout Ace vs. Strikeout Kings: Verlander set to vaporize the Astros
