September 2008 Desktop Wallpaper

Here's the desktop wallpaper for September 2008. I'm unsure as how the Tigers will end the 2008 season, but I'm pulling for them. Let's hope they go out on a high note.

Upcoming series

The Tigers haven't been performing up to snuff as of late, but if they want a chance to get back into the AL Central race, the rest of August is the time to do it. Their next five series are against Baltimore (.483), Texas (.500), Kansas City (.446), Cleveland (.450), and Kansas City (.446).

As of today, the Tigers are 59-62 (.488), and 9.5 games out of first place. If there ever was a time to play for the postseason, it's in these next five series. I believe we have to go 12-3 in these five series in order to have any shot of catching the White Sox/Twins. If we can't beat these .500 or below teams, then there is no way we will have anything to play for in September.

Be sure to vote in the poll to the right. You can select more than one option, so let me know what you think the Tigers will be doing during the off-season.

Okay, if you were wondering why I haven't posted on here for over a week, it's because I've been slamming my head against the wall in fustration with the Tigers bullpen. I can't recall feeling more fustrated over these past few weeks than I have in a while.

I'm about ready to throw in the towel for the 2008 Tigers season and wait to see what happens with the rest of the league. Despite my disappointment with the Tigers, there are some tight races in quite a few divisions and should make for an interesting September.

Here's the results from last month's poll. While the playoffs are certainly not out of the picture, if the Tigers keep having the same darn luck with their bullpen, then the 22% of you who chose an early winter are going to be spot on.

I've got the poll for the months of August and September up now. Let me know what you think.

Go Tigers!
