Things couldn't be going better for the Tigers right now. Things that have me excited:
1. Rangers have to play a play-in game, and they are the team that scares me the most.
2. Even if they win the play-in game, they will have to play the Yankees, so one of those teams will be out before we meet them (and I think we match up well enough with NY anyway).
3. Oakland, Texas, NYY, and Baltimore all have to keep throwing their best pitchers out there every night, because they need to either secure the division or they need to win a play-in game.
4. Verlander will be rested, Cabrera is playing better than ever, and we get to play Oakland in the first round. They are a good team, but I'd prefer them to NYY or Texas.
Let's go Tigers!!!
And Mike Trout is 0-1 so far today, pretty much locking up Cabrera's triple crown!
The Tigers set up nicely for the first round, especially if they play Oakland. They will need to get some momentum and win both games at home if they want to win the series. I'm a little nervous how the staff will hold up for the ALCS (if they make it) and the ability of the hitters to knock in key runs, something they have lacked all season.
Another positive for the organization is that they won the division, but it was close and exciting. There were lots or reasons for people to come to the ball park right till the end. The organization would probably prefer this to winning the division by 15 games, leaving fans with fewer reasons to show up at the end. Cabrera's triple crown chase just gave them even more reasons to pack the stadium. If I owned the Tigers, I couldn't be happier with how things turned out.
If I owned the Tigers, I would have be irked with how the season turned out.
Sure, the end was exciting, but ticket sales suffered mightily during the middle of the season when they struggled and if the Tigers were churning out wins at a high pace all year they would have sold out almost every game.
I still want Leyland gone.

Only if he is replaced by a player's manager. I don't a control freak stat guy like Joe Madden.
It feels that way sometimes, but the Tigers average attendance this year was 4,765 higher than last year, when they won the division easily.
Change in league attendance from last year to this year based on home games played
Aaaaand Miggy officially wins the Triple Crown!
Truly amazing, never thought I'd see it in my lifetime.
Congrats to Miggy.
I don't think people understand the magnitude of this achievement. In the last 45 years, all the great hitters like Ken Griffey Jr., Barry Bonds, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron were not able to achieve this, and even the greatest hitter of all time Babe Ruth, was not able to hit for it.

He is as cool as the other side of the pillow!
Avila goes deep. Tigers up 3-1 in the fifth.
Bump for game 3 here in 30.
Would be sweet to sweep.
I just now read the title of this thread. Plus one ha ha
I see you Kylebennett7127! Doin' work!
Yes sir it would. Anderson hasn't pitched in awhile either, correct? Hope our offense can come alive a bit more here tonight. Go Tigers!
Something like mid-September was the last time he has pitched. We need the offense to jump on him early so Anibal can have a comfortable lead and not be pressured. Thankfully Sanchez has been pitching lights out of late.
Of course the Reds and Giants' game is going into extra innings. Hope it's over soon so we can get the Tigers game on.
I hate to admit it but i think Im finally warming to you. I think i just gave you Your first plus one. It was so hard to do.....
I've been watching most of this game and must say, Hunter Pence looks like the most uncoordinated player in the MLB.
I would say my posts are an acquired taste. I'm not really afraid to voice my opinion and I'm usually pretty defendant of my opinions.
Yeah, i always loved your enthusiasm. Its just you never back down in subjective opining. Either you will mellow and become a great knowledagble poster, it not mellow and be one hell of a trial attorney....
