I would have assumed Scherzer would get game 3...maybe they want to have their "worst" pitcher go against Cain?
I was reading an article and it made sence. Leyland said "Why fix something that isn't broken" in so many words.
Also the thing with Scherzer is he's the only 1 pitcher of our 4 projected starters that has a pitch count concern. Remember he injured his shoulder and Leyland wants to monitor his pitch count. But Scherzer is usually the Tigers #2.
This post season here's some amazing numbers for you Bubbles and of course everyone else.
2012 Post Season Detroit Tigers starting pitchers stats-
Justin Verlander's #'s 3-0, 0.74 ERA, 25 Strikeouts, 5 walks and averaging 125 pitches in 24.1 innings.
Doug Fister's #'s 0-0, 1.35 ERA, and averaging 106 pitches/game
Anibal Sanchez #'s 1-1, 1.35 ERA, and averaging 105 pitches/game
Max Scherzer's #'s 1-0, 0.82 ERA, and averaging only 94 pitches/game
And in the ALCS against the Yankees the Tigers starters posted a 0.66 ERA among their starters.
