I had no doubt that they would contend for the division title, but they won't win it unless they get more consistent pitching. They took a huge step in doing that by getting rid of Grilli, but they need the rest of the pitching staff to settle down and throw strikes. I'm tired of seeing the starter throw 100 pitches through five innings with six or seven walks. If they can improve upon that, they've got a chance.

The pitching staff is shaping up QUICKLY though... I'm not going to bother looking up names, but the dood that had passport issues now has them worked out and he's tearing it up in AA (or AAA?), the guy that came in for Willis is playing really well, and we really weren't all that bad off to begin with. Now don't get me wrong, I know we were having issues, but how much would ONE additional reliever have helped this team? IMO one good reliever would have turned nearly all of our issues around, and we have 3-4 guys shaping up to play very well, very soon (I wish damn Bautista could get his confidence issues straight. He really has some nasty stuff when he wants to locate it....)

This could get very interesting very fast... Add a "Fernando" or a"Zoom" to the list and, DAMN!!!

Just swept the Chicago. Verlander and Kenny both pitched jems. Polanco is on a tear. Migueal and the rest of the Central Americans are starting to hit there stride now that the weathers warmin up.

Losing Bondo is a big one. What the heck are we gonna do with the D-train? Galaraga has been solid. Getting Rodney/Zumaya back is huge.

Only 8 games back going into some interleague play against the Dodgers. 59 days to go til lions opener. LETS STICK WITH THE TIGERS!!

The Tigers are finally starting to turn things around, but is it too little, too late? The loss of Bonderman and Willis (temporary, I hope) is huge, but atleast Galarraga has stepped up. The return of Rodney (despite his first outing) and Zumaya should help, but they need to find another starting pitcher to have any hope of making the playoffs. Atleast nobody is running away with the Central, so there is still a chance.

took another series from the cards! Extra innings yesterday and in the bottom of the ninth the night before.

Clete Tomas has really steped up. Nice to have a fast running, left handed bat in our lineup.

Sheff seems to be returning to form. Heres to hoping he can stay healthy the rest of the season.

Was good to see Zoom back out on the mound as well. Rod and Mario (overated) stated that he's lost 30 pounds or so since last year. Though he did give up 2 runs when I watched him it was really exciting to see him throw 99 mph then throw in a curve or changeup and have the batter fall over himself. GOOD STUFF!!!!
