I was checking out the upcoming games on the desktop wallpaper I created, and realized that I made a mistake. The wallpaper showed that the Tigers were playing a four game series with the Rangers, when it should have showed just a three game series. So, I've updated the links in the original post below.

Ummmmm....yeah need to panic. The Tigers are 2-10 entering two series with division rivals Minnesota and Cleveland. Fortunately for the Tigers, the Twins and Indians are only a few games ahead of them in the standings. So, if the Tigers can sweep both series, they will be tied with Minnesota for third in the division.

Sadly, in my last post, I predicted the Tigers would finish April with an 18-10 record. For this to happen, they would have to win 16 straight games. I'm not saying this is impossible, and I'm the eternal optimist, but I have to be real and admit that 16 straight is pretty tough to pull off.

First win of 2008

Well, it took eight games for the Tigers to get their first win. Those first seven games were not a pretty sight to watch, but last night's game was certainly more fun.

Apparently someone with a lot of time on their hands did some research and found that no team that started 0-7 had gotten their first win off the defending World Series champion. Also, according to these statistics, the odds for the Tigers making it to the World Series are pretty slim. Now I don't know about you, but April and October are separated by a lot of games, right now, 154 games. That's a lot of time to make up for losing the first seven games. Does anyone remember the last few months of the 2006 season? There were some stretches in there that caused some concern, but look where the Tigers ended up. I'm saying all of this to say that you shouldn't count the Tigers out yet. If this were early September and the Tigers were bordering .500, then I'd be a lot more concerned.

My prediction: the Tigers finish April with a 18-10 record.

Go Tigers!

My Fantasy Baseball Team

Okay, this took some time, but as I said in my last post, real life ensues and my blogging gets pushed back. I thought I'd share my fantasy baseball team with you and get some feedback on my choices. The league I am in has 10 teams, so as I was drafting these players, I was taking my best shot at building a complete team.
