It’s odd to think that a home team is more or less playing on house money in Game 1 of a series. However, this is a game that the Rangers have to plan on losing, just as they probably plan on losing either Game 4 or Game 5 when Justin Verlander takes the bump again. Just as Detroit couldn’t afford to lose a game with Verlander on the mound and the series tied at 1-1 against the Yankees in the ALDS, it can’t afford to lose this one either. CJ Wilson was the one starting pitcher for the Rangers that really didn’t do all that well at any point over the course of the first round of the playoffs. He might have done well during the regular season, and the long rest may help him out in this one, but we’re just not that overly optimistic when push comes to shove.
