Another prime-time game for Must-See JV
So the Tigers' final Saturday game of the regular season, at Minnesota on Sept. 29, has been picked up for the FOX Saturday Baseball schedule. The time has been moved from 1:05 to 4:05 to accommodate that change.
As manager Jim Leyland has already laid out his rotation for the rest of the regular season, we know that will be Justin Verlander's turn to pitch, his final of the regular season — and possibly 2012, if the Tigers do not make the postseason. Max Scherzer is lined up for the final start of the regular season on Oct. 3, allowing the Tigers to keep Verlander in line for whatever is necessary — a potential Game 163, a one-game Wild Card playoff, or Game 1 of the American League Division Series.
