Looking at this game before the season started, Oakland is the dog here. My, how things have changed. You really have to wonder about Nate Robertson and his future as a starter in Detroit. His ERA has been on the rise now for 2+ years and the Tigers are just 18-34 in his last 52 starts and Detroit is realizing that it's hard to build a championship team this way. Justin Duchscherer has been remarkable for the A's. He has made eight starts and hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of them! Compare that to Robertson who has allowed 4+ in 9 of 11, and it is easy to see where the value lies in this one.
