Unless you are completely oblivious to the national sports media, you know that the Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers will be playing a tiebreaker game this Tuesday in Minnesota's Metrodome.
Minnesota claims the right to host the game since they won the 2009 regular season series against the Tigers.
I realize I am a little late on breaking this, but just to reiterate, the probable pitchers are Scott Baker for the Twins (15-9, 4.36) and Rookie of the Year candidate Rick Porcello (14-9, 4.04) for the Tigers.
2009 marks the third year in a row that baseball has seen a one-game "playoff" (Colorado over San Diego for the National League Wild Card in '07, Chicago over Minnesota for the American League Central Division in '08), the longest such streak of its kind.
The winner of the game will go on to play the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium on either Wednesday or Thursday.
