Can you believe the Detroit Tigers are 4-0? First they sweep the Jays and then knock off the Twins in a come from behind win. I'm getting excited but I know it's early. Go Tigers!!

Astros fan here.
I've decided to root for STL so that maybe they won't be as hungry next year.
That being said, I'm gonna call it Tigers in 6.
As much as I hate to admit it (NL fan here), there is a REASON the AL has been getting homefield advantage since the Allstar game began to determine it. . .
I wouldn't trade a temporary advantage of balanced players for having to deal with that silly DH. It cheats the end game strategy.
(I would say Tigers in 4 except for Pujols . . .and I'd walk him everytime he's up to bat with runners in scoring position, no matter what that walk does to the score - remember this: Pujols single-handedly ruined the Astros' closer, Brad Lidge. He hasn't been the same since that towering shot in game 5 of the NLCS last year.)
