The debate still rages on about who the AL MVP award will go to, but I think it is pretty obvious who the AL Cy Young Award will be going to. Verlander won his 24th game and 12th in a row today going 8 scoreless innings and lowering his ERA to 2.29 with a WHIP of 0.91.
The Tigers have already clinched the division title for the first time in over 20 years. They are now trying to hold off Texas , Boston, and Tampa Bay for the 2nd best record in the AL. N is still up a bit on the Tigers and it would take another very nice winning run to catch up to them and win the best record in the AL this year for home field up to the World Series.
Just 10 more games to go and the season is over with the Tigers heading for the playoffs! The Lions look awesome too so this is turning out to be a great year for Detroit. Getting life insurance quotes is at an all-time high for the impending excitement.
