About damn time...

...The Tigers won a series. Kicking the Yankees around to win 3 of 4, and to end the series with a 16-0 flourish was something the team, and the fans, needed badly.

But I'm not going to say the worst is over, as we've thought that several times over since mid July. At least the Tigers finished their August gauntlet of a schedule only 2.5 back of the Tribe. They are by no means out of the playoff hunt. I do need to see more from them to convince me that they are totally back on track.

Justin Verlander had his best start of the 2nd half tonight, and that is cause for encouragement, but the starting pitching, as a whole, is still somewhat off in the weeds. There's still plenty of injuries to play through (Rogers, Jurrjens, Sheffield) as well.

Let's just say that we may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, as the Tigers have won 3 of 4 to finally take a series. Let's see if they can make it 5 of 6, 8 of 10, 12 of 15, and win a few series in a row.

The Tigers are due. Overdue, actually...

  1. As a Tiger fan who's hated the Yankees since 1961, when they stomped all over one of the best Tiger teams of all time, let me just say about Monday's game...
