Game 150 Open Thread - Detroit Tigers (84-68) vs. Kansas City Royals (83-68)

The gamethread is late, let's hope the Royals bats aren't.

Ed Zurga

Its Justin Verlander vs. Jason Vargas in a battle of the "JVs". This is Verlander's sixth start against the Royals, so he's pretty familiar with them, and they're familiar with him. He's given up 21 runs in 32 2/3 innings against the Boys in Blue so far.

Tigers catcher Alex Avila is still suffering the after effects from a concussion and is out tonight. James McCann who has all of five games experience in the big leagues, gets the start behind the dish. I'm sure he isn't nervous.


Full crowd tonight. Should be loud.

God help us all.
