The Tigers move to 6-0 and Nebraska still looks like Nostradamus.
The offense continues to impress. Jose Miguel Cabrera was 4-4 with 2 home runs and 4 RBIs. Isn’t he usually a slow starter?
In the first six games of 2015 we have seen a role reversal. Success in the last five seasons consisted of the pitching bailing out an erratic and often stagnant offense. This year the offense is mashing regardless of what the pitching does.
Here’s what concerns me, it doesn’t look like the Tigers are going to get a lot of length out the fourth and fifth starters. That means more bullpen innings which means disaster. It isn’t an issue now because the Tigers are scoring 7+ runs a game but if the offense slumps it is going to be tough to win when the starters only pitch five innings.
I’ll take 6-0.
