As you probably remember, A.J. Burnett, despite a terrible season with the Yankees last year, came into Comerica Park during game four of the ALDS last year with the Tigers on the brink of victory – and shut them down.

The Tigers are in Pittsburgh for their final interleague series of the year against their despised rival Pittsburgh, with whom they apparently share a blood feud.
