Detroit Tigers: 89-64, 1st Place (6.0 ahead of Cleveland).  Magic Number: 4 It would be nice if the Tigers could win the division this weekend on their last home stand–hey, it would be nice whenever they win the division. That might be a tough task though with Cleveland playing three games against the Astros, who are butt-sliding their way to a 100+ loss season. Even if the Tigers sweep the White Sox, they will need the Astros to pull out at least one game to score a home celebration. If they clinch in Minnesota, they will have to ponder how to celebrate, seeing as there is no swimming pool at Target Field. Perhaps Vince could suggest some ideas. I might agree with the grumbling Diamondbacks that a celebration like the Dodgers’ has no place in baseball–if I could only get over the concept of a SWIMMING POOL in the outfield stands. Anyway, assuming the Tigers do win the division, the current playoff seedings look like this: Boston    93  61  – Oakland  90  63  2 1/2 Detroit     89  64  3 1/2 Boston has the toughest remaining schedule of the three: Boston: Toronto (3) at Colorado (2) at Baltimore (3) Oakland: Minnesota (3) at LA Angels (3) at Seattle (3) Detroit: Chicago (3) at Minnesota (3) at Miami (3) ***** Take 5:  Max Scherzer makes one more try to get victory #20 tonight. Today’s Player of the Pre-game:  Prince Fielder. Prince has gotten hot lately, hitting .383 over the last two weeks. Despite the popularity of his nacho-nabbing antics yesterday, Prince finds the nachos a little too insubstantial for his appetite, swipes a hot dog, and does a subsequent Gates Brown slide into 2nd base. Tonight’s Lineup: Jackson, CF Hunter, RF Cabrera, 3B Fielder, 1B Martinez, DH Dirks, LF Infante, 2B Avila, C Santiago, SS
