Philadelphia refuses to go away in the NL East. It seems unlikely they can push the Mets and Nats all season long but maybe they are a viable Wild Card team.
In the AL the Tigers have been playing better but find themselves in fourth place in the very competitive AL Central at the moment.
This series is definitely more compelling now than when the schedule’s were released.
By all rights the Phillies should be terrible.
They have the second worst offense in the league and not much reason to expect that will change.
The pitching has been very good though and they are getting a a sense that youngsters like Odubel Herrera and Maikel Franco are legit.
Herrera is on pace to significantly exceed his very promising rookie season thanks to a more selective approach at the plate.
Aaron Nola is one of a trio of young hurlers that is leading this Philly renaissance. Vincent Velasquez has gotten the headlines but Nola has more innings, K, and a much better WHIP.
You can easily argue he has been the better of the two and their ERAs are very close.
The question is how many more innings are in his arm this season but for right now he has become someone you can definitely look to back. The bullpen has been better than expected too.
The Tigers have had a good run over the last 10 years and it is hard to know whether is it over, or other teams caught and passed them, or both.
This season they are fighting but their recent winning ways have only brought them to .500 heading into Tuesday. The key has been an offense that looks to finally be coming alive.
They have scored five or more in their last eight games as Miguel Cabrera has become the Miggy of old. He has seven homers in their last nine games.
Anibal Sanchez has been the Tigers worst starter this season but with his track record and not a ton of depth they are stuck letting him try and figure it out.
He has not won a game in May and that is little surprise given he is giving up 4ER or mre pretty much every game.
Last year his ERA ballooned to a career high 4.99 which perhaps was a leading indicator.
The Detroit bullpen has been pretty good but is not fearsome.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
No team has delivered more units than Philly this season so you have to get your head around the fact that they are not terrible. Nola has not been the biggest cash cow but he has delivered positive results so far.
Detroit makes me nervous. They are finally starting to hit but Sanchez has been pretty awful and the Phillies starters are really benefitting from their first go around the league.
They definitely look like the better value option to me.
