These guys played 10 innings yesterday with Detroit winning. The Tigers have been more competitive than expected today, though you have to wonder how long they can keep it up.
The Twins offensive numbers look pretty good to start the season. It helps that they scored 15 runs in the series opener for sure but it should also be noted that they are playing without Josh Donaldson. Ageless Nelson Cruz already had three homers, as does Byron Buxton. This team has more than enough offense.
Coming off a fantastic first season in Minnesota Kenta Maeda was pretty sharp in the opener. He did not get through five innings though. It is just one start.
Minnesota is going to need their bullpen to be sharper if they are going to compete for another division title. It is funny how changing up the guys can lead to dramatically different results but Minnesota did not want to invest in that unit.
With the win yesterday Detroit now has a chance to get back-to-back series wins to start the season. They have played all five of their games at home to start the year. They are not hitting much, just enough to win. The team batting average is .216
Boyd was so bad last season it was not going to take much to be better. He did have more walks than strikeouts for the game but he only gave up three hits in five plus innings. They need him to stay sharp for this team to compete
The Tigers bullpen has been a disaster this season, sporting an ERA over 10 so far this season. It is early so it is a small sample size but still a disturbing trend.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
It is a good sign for the Tigers that Boyd seems to be better than he was a year ago. This is not a good matchup though as the Twins are loaded with righthanded bats that can mash. I feel pretty confident he gives his his first runs of the season in a Tigers loss.
