Tigers Prediction

I know this isn't going way out on a limb, but I would not be surprised to see the Tigers finish the season at 70-92, which would be a major step backwards and a huge disappointment based on the team's expectations.

They are currently 53-60, and have 49 games left. 21 of those games are against Boston, Chicago, the Angels and Oakland. Call me a pessimist, but I would not be surprised by them going 6-15 in those games. All those teams are in pennant races (except Chicago, but they are berating everyone), and as last night's ninth inning showed us, the Tiger's don't have their head in the game.

The remaining schedule has:
3 against Seattle (1-2)
6 against Minnesota (2-4)
4 against Toronto (2-2)
9 against KC (4-5)
6 against Cleveland (2-4)

They are in a free fall that began at the all star break.

The worse they perform now, the more pressure to do something drastic in the offseason. Better they end up with a win total in the low 70's, than be lulled into thinking the team has a chance to compete next year (without major changes) on the basis of a strong finish.

They need 3 All-Star caliber players (left-handed hitting power outfielder, top of the rotation power pitcher, and new setup/closer) or they'll be doomed to 74-83 win seasons for the next 5 years.

I did! And I stand by that prediction. Sometimes teams have to get worse before they can get better. This team, as it's currently constructed, is going noweher but to the mediocre hall of fame.

I expect them to take a major step forward because I expect them to make at least 2 more major moves this off-season in addition to revamping the coaching staff...
