Tigers: Stick with us for a moment. When the finally healthy Anibal Sanchez has to go to the bullpen and Rick Porcello is a fourth starter, it's hard to consider this rotation anything but stellar. Yet the numbers paint another picture. The team ERA is 4.01, 11th in the AL. Obviously, the rocky bullpen inflates that, but with the addition of Sanchez and trade acquisition Joakim Soria, it is improving. The vaunted rotation's ERA, however, was 3.89, 10th in the league. Verlander has been the main culprit, but he has been better recently (3-1, 3.89 ERA in five September starts) and the sense is he ready to roll again. David Price (4-4, 3.59 ERA) has been human since coming over in July from the Tampa Bay Rays. Max Scherzer (18-5, 3.15), who is expected to start at Camden Yards on Thursday, continues to dazzle, but historically he is just solid against the Orioles — 3-1 with a 3.92 ERA in six starts, none this year.
