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.
