Oh the drama of September for baseball fans who have teams in pennant races. The Tigers are currently 3.5 games back from the (damn) Yankees.

The Yanks and the Tigers pretty much swapped roles after the All Star break this year. The Yanks had a miserable start to their season, and many analysts predicted they would not make it into October, whereas the Tigers were 1 game off of the best record in the MLB and lead the league in almost all of the offensive categories.

However, July proved terrible for the Tigers who managed to win at a paltry .335 pace. At the same time, Cleveland (then behind the Tigers in the ALC race) caught fire and ran away with the division and the Yanks started winning a lot too.

Now us Tiger’s fans find out team playing good baseball once again, but is it too late? If the Yanks and the Tribe keep on winning Detriot will be going home in October. However, if the Tigers can keep winning their is a good chance they might sneak past the Yanks for the AL wildcard slot. The tigers tee off with the Rangers and the Twins this week. Both are sub .500 teams, although the Tigers have struggle with the ‘weaker’ teams this year.

I believe the Tiger’s have a shot at October….. keep playin’ hard!!!
