DOUBLE HEADER TIME!

We’ve got a doozy today, folks. A Detroit Tigers vs. Texas Rangers double header. The two best A.L. teams thus far in 2012 and the two favorites for the A.L. pennant. We’ve got reigning Cy Young and MVP winner Justin Verlander on the hill for one of the games, and Matt Harrison, he of a sub-1.00 ERA for the Rangers as well.

And do I really have to tell you about the two offenses? If the answer is yes…well…time to get out from under your rock.

Here are my predictions for today’s double header:

Game 1 is actually already in the books. And I say that because Harrison is not gonna allow ten runs. Which is one more than what the Rangers have already scored through two innings. Yes, they are up 9-0 in the second inning. Josh Hamilton went deep AGAIN, so he’s now got 6 on the season.

The only thing I can really predict is how many runs Texas will finish with. And that number is…16. I think they win 16-2. BOOM.

Game 2 should be different, as Verlander is pitching. But this IS the Rangers. It seems that in double headers, the team that scores a ton of runs in one game, can’t continue the pace in game two. That’s also assuming said team doesn’t have nine all-stars in its lineup. If any team is capable of two crooked numbers in one day, it’s the Rangers.

This might be a surprise to you, but I’m taking the Rangers in a sweep. Why? Logic. The Tigers have a great offense, but the Rangers is better. I think they can scrape together a couple runs off Verlander, and I think Neftali Feliz will baffle Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera and company.

Give me Texas in a sweep, combined score of 20-3. Ouch.

Lunch time here in Florida. Don’t forget to check back tomorrow!
