Doug Fister to pitch the home opener.
Rotation for first five games: Verlander, Sanchez, Porcello, Fister, Scherzer.
A Sqaud warmup again today..
Scherzer is starting.
Which means, I'm guessing all will get tomorrow off. (For the poster saying he was going to the game tomorrow.)

Maybe I will get lucky and they play tomorrow. They do have an off day on Sunday.
I'm not sure they want the whole team traveling on Easter Sunday. I'm guessing they send a lot of the guys to Minneapolis tonight/tomorrow to get into their normal pregame routines.
Red Bird III is flying the Red Wings home from San Jose later today. The Wings are home until the 4th. I will track the plane and see when it is scheduled to fly to Tampa to pick up the Tigers.
I'm not sure they travel to Minnesota as a single unit though. For all we know Verlander is already there.
Starters sometimes travel ahead if there is a late game followed by a game they are starting the next day.
Last year Red Bird III picked the entire team up from TPA and took them to Detroit for Opening Day. I was able to see RBIII by chance at the private plane terminal at the airport. Pretty cool.
With the Tigers and Red Wings sharing the plane, there is some scheduling priority. When a team is in the playoffs, they get to use the plane. The other team charters. If there is a long West Coast trip (usually for the Wings), then they get the plane. The new MD-81 Ilitch bought is able to make it out west without stopping, something the old DC9 couldn't do.
Lynn Henning's twitter is both unintentionally funny and sad. He tries to drum up so much crap based on non-facts it is ridiculous. Look at his tweet from earlier

Tigers keep saying Scherzer is just fine, fine, fine. Then back him off to April 6. They're being ultra-cautious. Or they're worried.

Today is going to be a great day. Big news coming!
Isn't Max pitching today? I mean they would have to skip him today for him to not go last in order.
5 Year Extension...180 total till 2019. 6th year if hits incentives for 22 M. Bringing the total potential contract to 202M.
5M more than King Felix.
Yeah...he's an idiot.
Tigers destroying Rays today...I think (hope) this is the dress rehearsal. 7-0 in 2nd inning.
It's A-Squad v. A-Squad too...well, Rays not playing Longoria. Hellickson started for Rays.
This is pretty funny - a "Who's Your Tiger?" flowchart
