This Saturday, at 7:05 AM at the Yankee Stadium, the Detroit Tigers will be bearing their fangs in a game against the New York Yankees live from Yankee Stadium. 


Reaching for the playoffs for the first time since 2014, the Detroit Tigers are in quite a bind. With 20 wins and 30 losses, the Tigers take fourth in the American League Central and 26th in the Major League Baseball overall rankings. To qualify for the playoffs, they must best the four teams within their division: the Minnesota Twins, Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Guardians, and Kansas City Royals. The Twins stand on top with 30-22, 10 wins ahead of Detroit. With four months left, there is still time for Detroit to climb to the top for that playoff spot, but they better start acting fast.  


Though in a precarious position, the New York Yankees have been the most consistent chart-topper this season so far. With the LA Dodgers and other NY team Mets in close proximity, we can bet the Yankees are doing all in their power to hang tight at number one. 34 wins and 15 losses, the team has garnered a .240 average and 2.91 team ERA. Their challenge now is to play more consistently, especially since they have been a little troubled this May. How come? They lost multiple matches against the Orioles and White Sox this May! While of course, their standing does not immunize them from losing, no one would have anticipated these losses as this New York team is definitely the Goliath in the MLB. 


To end this piece, we have made our pick, and it’s clear as day. It’s looking like the Yankees won’t be helping the Tigers achieve their playoff dreams, but we can anticipate that the Tigers won’t make it easy. The Tigers have been showing consistent and linear progression this time of the season, but it’s still more likely for the Yankees to come on top regardless.  


7:05 AM, June 4, 2022. Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY.
