Detroit Tigers

Recommended Posts

3 years ago they lost 119 games.

Now they have the best record in baseball 34-14

Yes its early in the season. but can anyone remeber back to 1987

when they had a winning record this far into the season.

if they play 500 the rest of the year they will win 90 plus games

being from detroit its refreshing to here somrthing

besides the red wings or pistons

even though the tigers are not getting any respect

from the national media

Yes it IS an amazing turnaround by a team in a strong division. If they keep winning they will earn the media's respect eventually. It did take quite a while for the media to respect the White Sox last year, which may be explained because so much of the media is concentrated on the coasts, and can often ignore teams in the heartland (or rust belt :tribble: )

The Tigers certainly have my respect thus far for their amazing record. I have heard some of their fans say they are getting all the breask and getting calls and errors from other teams when they need them. That is in no way a put down of the Tigers, becuase it takes a great team to consistently cash in on lucky breaks. It sounds and looks like they may be a team of destiny The White sox are in a real slump. :laugh: But there are still a lot of games to play. It is refreshing to that division so strong with Detroit, Chicago and Minnesota all with impresive to very good records.

The Tigers are doing great this year. Good for them! Much better than this minor league team we have around here called the Orioles...............

I'm actually starting to get my hopes up, too. Freakin' stoked. I don't know what Leyland does that Trammell couldn't, but it's incredible. Granderson is a future hall of famer at this rate. Mark my words. Amazing player. He has really been on fire. And how about Bonderman and Robertson and Verlander? Wicked awesome. Thames still doing well, as is Guillen and of course, good old Pudge. I still couldn't believe Kenny Rogers would be so welcome in the mitten state seeing how he got so vehemently booed at last year's all-star game at Comerica, but hey, he's helping us out incredibly too. It's a wonderful thing all around. Have they clinched a berth yet? I haven't seen a sports page in ages, so I don't know, other than I think they're still close to being 40 games over .500.

 

BOO-YAH!!!!

Tigers still have the best record in baseball :elephant:

81-46

still 35 games over 500.

and a 61/2 lead. will not count my chickens but looking good

for the boys that have been the laughing stock of baseball the last few years.

35 games left if they play 500 the rest of the way.they will will win 98 games

means chi soxs or minn. will have to win at least 25 of there last games

to knock them off. Looking good.

We may have finally restored the roar. (instead of the mew ) :elephant:

GO TIGERS

:laugh:

Tigers just beat the Twins back to a 5 game lead.

Twins are in second place 3 games left in this series

white sox fading. Could this be the year :P

Even if it is not Jim Leland is manager of the year

what he has did to make the kittens to tigers again is

unbeliveable. from laughling stock to contender.

the future looks good.

:bow: The Detroit Tigers deserve lots of credit for this tremendous turnaround. I'm not so happy with the play of The White Sox :nono: , but they are in a tough division this year. Hopefully they can win a few more as the season ends and try to go out with some class, then work on improving next year.

 

Congrats again Detroit Fans! You deserve it!

Even though they have clinched the wild card.

with a 1 1/2 game lead in the division and 6 games left.

3 against Toronto blue jays 3 with Kansas city royals

who they have beat 14 of 15 they still have a chance not

only to win the division but still end up with the best record

in baseball. all 6 games are at home.

 

GO TIGERS

RESTORE THE ROAR

Yes, the damn Yankees - they gone! No subway series this year! I'm now hoping for a Cardinals - Tigers World Series, but more realistically it will probably be the Mets and Tigers. GO TIGERS!

WHOOO HOOO! TIGERS WIN! NEXT STOP WORLD SERIES!

 

I believe the Tigers are a team destined to win this year. I work with 2 Detroit fans and they are thrilled!

 

Now to see if my Cardinals can stop the Mets (I don't expect them to) Cards lost tonight :)
