Go Get 'Em Tiger!

Yes!

The Detroit Tigers won their division title.

Too bad they couldn't put the Royals to sleep/out of their misery sooner. The Royals were too uppity for much too long and should have been put in their place long ago, as either the Orioles or Angels (maybe even the Yankees or Blue Jays) would have done. All the Royals did was to give their poor, misguided fans a false sense of hope for much, much too long.

Maybe the Tigers are doing the same?

No excuse for prolonging the agony against the White Sox and Twins for as long as they (the Tigers) did. Doesn't look good for a championship team to struggle as hard as they did against two cellar dwellers.

Assuming the Tigers make it to the World Series versus either/or the Orioles and Angels, I would love to see the Tigers play the Cardinals again.

Two teams that appear to be perfectly balanced/matched in percentages. Neither of whom can seem to consistently defeat the worst teams in their own divisions.

Still, two teams with a history as World Series rivals.

Having talked all the above trash, all I have to say is:

GO GET 'EM TIGER!

The Tigers are a strange team. They can be awesome against tough teams and completely flop against a weak team. The last two WS trips had them winning like crazy leading up to them and they ended up winning just one game in the last two trips. Frustrating.

Hope they do well this time around. I hope the Royals do well too--and then lose to the Tigers in the ALCS.

Isn't this 2 years running?

How's Iglesias doing on his rehab? I think he's a whiny little B-word, but I'm in the minority on that account. He was at least a factor for them last year. I don't like even players I dislike being injured.

Yeah. Good old ABC News. Talk about lazy reporting.

One creditor. A thousand. Ten million. What difference does HOW MANY really make when you are short 18x what your annual budget is (with shortfall - not collected revenue - budget)?

Sorry. I just hate lazy reporting. Irrelevant facts just to pad their list.

Tigers are a Jekyll and Hyde team.

They were the most frustrating 90 win team ever.

That being said, Go Tigers!

Their defense sucks and bullpen blows, so Miggy and the Martinez boys are going to have to hit.

But I think it all comes down to how well Kinsler hits and gets on base. If he gets on base, the Tigers do well and score, if not, they struggle. Kinsler on base gets Hunter a lot of fastballs as he hits ahead of Miggy and VMart, and at this point in his career, Hunter needs to guess and cheat a bit to be effective. Knowing a fastball is coming greatly helps him.

That being said, I think the Tigers starters can hold the Orioles hitters at bay, and I don't think the Angels have the starting pitching to stop the Tigers.

Tigers make the World Series! And the Lions to the Super Bowl! Great days for Detroit sports fans.

Agreed. Would love to KC get it done for their fans. It's been a while for them.
