Detroit is Better Than I Thought

I wanted to face Detroit in the first round and now fear a case of, "Be careful what you ask for."  In particular there are two things about Detroit that I didn't really grasp until watching them for 18 innings.

  1.  Their lineup is deep with power threats.  They don't take pitches and the lineup is no match for the Yanks but it is probably the second best one in the postseason.  The only time I relax is ironically is at the top of the order (despite Joe Morgan's crushes on Placido Polanco and Sean Casey).  Four through nine, they are quite scary.
  2.  Zumaya.  There was no way the Yankees were going  to get anything off him.  If the Tigers make a run he will be compared to K-Rod in 2002 and Mo in 1996.  The Yankees need to be ahead by a couple of runs going into the 7th.
Finally is there any reason we don't use Bruney in the 7th and 8th until Mo can throw two innings?  He is our second best reliever right now.

We need to pound Rogers early tonight.  I don't want Jaret Wright facing the Tiger lineup down 2-1.
