Tonight (Monday at 9PM ET, 8PM CT) Tony, Adam and Scott take a look at the past week of MLB action. Here is what’s on tap for tonight!

  • “Untweetworthy!”-Tigers sweep the Tribe, ending the series with a 5-run, 10th inning off of Cleveland closer Chris Perez.
  • “Strange Games, Indeed”-Angels-Rangers (Wednesday night finish) and Indians-Tigers (Sunday finish).
  • “Welcome To The Jungle”-Tigers obtain Jeff Baker from the Cubs for two PTBNL.  Is this an upgrade over Ryan Raburn?
  • “Pinstripes and Bengal Stripes”-Big 4-game series preview between NYY-DET.  How critical is this series for both teams in their respective races?
  • “Don’t Need To Be Coy, Roy”-Rangers Manager Ron Washington moved Roy Oswalt to the bullpen with the acquisition of Ryan Dempster.
  • “Don’t Look Now….Guess Who’s in the Rearview?”-Oakland moves into 2nd place in the AL West, 5 1/2 in back of Texas.
  • “What a Different a Year Makes”-Cincinnati (+14) Baltimore (+13), Washington (+11), Oakland (+8), and Pittsburgh (+7) have improved their standing over the past year, while Milwaukee (-16) and Philadelphia (-25) are in hard reverse right now.  Outside of personnel, has the product on the field changed that much?
