By Adam Dodge, Senior Columnist - 

Following the Angels' thrilling series with Oakland Athletics, one of the oddest we've seen in quite some time, in which the Angels played three 1-run games, giving two of them away before stealing the finale, they embark on their second road trip of the season. Their first stop - Motor City.

Nestled in the city where a 4-bedroom home costs less than a carton of Newports is Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers. If you Google Earth 2100 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48201-3470, the stadium's address and slide your finger over the mouse pad you'll actually bear witness to three homicides.  

In a town without jobs or an edible piece of produce, resides twenty-five guys who make up a pretty darn good baseball team.  The Tigers were in the ALCS last year and are clear favorites to win the AL Central Division again in 2014. 

In the off-season the Tigers shipped their power hitting first baseman and professional fat ass Prince Fielder - a guy who likes to eat after he eats - to the Texas Rangers for second baseman and legendary douchebag  Ian Kinsler.

While Detroit's fast food bubble has burst, its Affliction apparel industry is soaring to new heights. 

Despite the Angels' struggles in 2013 and the Tigers' success, our boys took it to them last season, sweeping the season series six games to none. At 7-8, the Angels hope to carry their dominance over Detroit into this weekend's three game series and leave Michigan for the nation's capital on Sunday at .500 or better.  

They'll miss Justin Verlander, which is a shame, because he owns a 4-5 record and an ERA above 4.00 against the Halos lifetime.  The Angels will face off against 2013 Cy Young winner Max Scherzer  on Saturday. 

Should be an incredibly tough series for the Angels. As always, we'll leave homerism in the bag and look at this series objectively. 

Halos sweep, 3-0. 
Love to hear what you think!
