The Tigers just kicked off their game with the Angels. During the pregame show, I decided to check something. On August 7, 2006, the Tigers essentially peaked in their magical season. They were 40 games above .500 before they went on a little bit of a spill. What’s odd is how that stretch has basically gone on into 2007 and now into 2008. Since that time (almost two years), The Tigers are 128-134 in the regular season. If you count their 8-5 playoffs in 2006, then they’re 136-139. Almost .500. So for a long period of time, the Tigers have basically played like a .500 team.
Anyway, some food for thought as you’re watching the game.
