What Happened to the Tigers.

I have a question for all those guys playing baseball in Detroit with a gothic "D" on their caps.

Who are you guys and what have you done with the real Detroit Tigers?

AL Central 2005 Final Standings.

Chicago 99 - 63 .611
Cleveland 93 - 69 .574
Minnesota 83 - 79 .512
Detroit 71 - 91 .438
Kansas City 56 -106 .346

Current AL Central Standings.
Detroit 30 - 14 .619
Chicago 29 - 15 .659
Cleveland 22 - 22 .500
Minnesota 19 - 25 .432
Kansas City 10 - 32 .238

Of course it's far too early to tell if the Tigers are for real or if they're just playing very well at the moment. But it is astonishing ... Kind of like the 1969 Mets. It's also about time.

As a long time Tigers fan, I'm shocked (but delighted) at their progress this season.

I don't know anything about this stuff. Can't keep up.

I'll go check out your last post.

I too am only marginally sure of this team. There is plenty of time for the Angels to get their act together and the Tigers to revert to their old selves.

That is astonishing! I would love KC's team to be doing better. Somebody said to me the other day, "hey, did you hear the Royals didn't lose last night...yeah, they didn't play".

I see that the Royals are a pretty sad team. I paid a little attention to them some years ago when they were the parent team to our local minor league team (The Lansing Lugnuts). Most teams have good years and bad years. It wasn't that long ago that the Royals had a decent team.

If you search Google for the phrase "What happened to the Tigers", your blog comes up #1 and mine #2. How 'bout that!

Go get 'em, Tigers!
