MLB FREE PICK: Take Detroit. According to latest MLB trends, the Tigers are 5-1 in Fister’s last six starts during Game 1 of a series and 4-1 in his last five starts with seven or more days of rest. The Tigers are also 6-2 in Fister’s last eight starts as a home favorite, 11-4 in his last 15 starts overall, and 5-1 in his last six starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5. The Tigers’ offense has been brutal throughout most of the postseason and one move Jim Leyland made heading into Game 4 was dropping a very ineffective Austin Jackson down in the lineup. Jackson was hitting .077 from the leadoff spot in this series and has been replaced by Torii Hunter. Hopefully for Detroit’s sake Hunter will get on base and set the table for guys like Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez, unlike Jackson, who has a brutal on-base percentage in this postseason.
