It's been a busy spring with WBC clashing with preparation of MLB. I can't remember who said it, but I agree with the guy who said, "WBC has it's heart in the right place, but it's not the right time of the year." and there's really no slot of time available in a year to actually get the best of the World to play this game in their peak performance. There's a feel of a "side show" which it shouldn't be and it leaves you wondering what if the World's best took the field?
Back in Florida the Detroit Tigers will travel to Space Coast Stadium in Viera for a rematch with the Nationals. The starting pitchers looks like a pretty good card, but don't let it fool you. This game like yesterday will take a look a number of comers unknown to most. The biggest concern will come from the fresh arms. Both of these teams put up crooked numbers yesterday. The Tigers with split squad games happening in Lakeland makes this visiting squad somewhat limited, but diluted Tigers on the road can still pull this one out. This is Spring Training prospects countdown and the regulars will start taking over going forward.
DETROIT TIGERS +104 for 1 unit(W)
