The Tiger’s first game of the 2013 season was encouraging. The offense was dangerous as advertised and Torii Hunter looked like the free agent acquisition fans had hoped for. Justin Verlander got it done; he threw more pitches than you’d like but he handed Drew Smyly a scoreless game in the sixth. That’s when the trouble started.
There will be trades during the season. The Tigers won't go without an established closer for long.
