The Last Week

It all comes down to this. 7 games to go, a 2 game lead for the Tigers over the Twins in the AL Central, and a 4 game series against the Twins. All I can say is, HANG ON, 'cause this is going to be exciting, interesting, nerve-wracking, nail-biting, gut-wrenching, and impossible for you to not watch.

Interesting story on Yahoo! Sports regarding the possibility of the Tigers making the playoffs. Instead of me re-hashing the entire article, check it out, AccuScore: Tigers, Rockies should hold on.

Huge win

Yesterday's win in the Metrodome was huge for the Tigers. On the verge of being swept in the series, they managed to win their final game in that horrible stadium and push their lead in the AL Central back to three games.

Now, we head into Cleveland for a three game series against a floundering Indians team that has lost eight in a row. I don't want to jinx them and predict a sweep, so I'm rooting for a 2-1 split in the series.

The Twins are heading to Chicago to face a White Sox team that has lost four of its last five games. As much as it pains me to do, I'm going to be rooting for the White Sox to win that series.

If the Tigers go 2-1 against Cleveland, and the Twins go 1-2 against Chicago, our lead will be 5 games with 10 games remaining. As much as I'd love for the Tigers to have wrapped up the AL Central title by now, this race is just far too exciting. Those last seven games at Comerica Park are going to be absolutely insane!

Go Tigers!

Ernie Harwell has cancer

Ernie Harwell, the legendary voice of the Detroit Tigers, has incurable bile duct cancer. MLive has a complete story on their site.

My memories of Ernie are similar to many other Tigers fans. From those late nights listening to the radio in the living room, or hearing him call games as I did homework, Ernie's ability to call the game is unsurpassed.

I am saddened to hear of the diagnosis, but am always going to treasure those memories of him calling the games. Best of luck to you Ernie!

Go Tigers!

September / October Desktop Wallpaper

The last full month of baseball is here, and the Detroit Tigers are still in the mix. As of today, the Tigers are sitting atop the AL Central.

The Twins are currently in a series against the White Sox, and the Twins are only 3.5 games behind Detroit. Somehow, the Tigers have mostly AL Central opponents during September, with Tampa and Toronto being the only two opponents outside our division.

The regular season ends with two series at home against the Twins and the White Sox. Those two series could decide who wins the AL Central. To be honest, I don't think I'd want it any other way.
