Default Tigers pass 2003 win total...

One year after being the butt of jokes for their futility, it's tough to make fun of the Detroit Tigers.

The Tigers surpassed their 2003 wins total -- with 2 1/2 months left in the season -- beating the New York Yankees 4-2 on Sunday behind Nate Robertson's pitching and Carlos Pena's hitting.

Detroit (44-47) set an AL record for losses last year by going 43-119, a loss shy of baseball's post-1900 record for setbacks.

"It's fun when you can crush somebody and land your punches, to use a boxing analogy,'' said Pena, who was 3-for-3, including a solo homer.

The Tigers easily set a record for fewest games needed to surpass their wins total from the previous year, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The previous mark of 106 was set by the 1962 Philadelphia Phillies (48-58 after going 47-107) and the 1989 Baltimore Orioles (55-51 following a 54-107 season).

"I'm not going to go celebrate,'' Detroit manager Alan Trammell said.


Full story here.

Well, although they're doing better than last year, they still aren't doing so hot... but, improving nonetheless... it goes to show one off-season move can't bring your team from the gutter to the championship...

Nah, it just goes to show that one off season can dramatically turn an organization around. Pudge has not only been an offensive leader, but a leader behind the plate as well.


They have a lot of the same pitchers from last year, who were coming close to getting 20 losses and now they're some pretty good pitchers with pretty good numbers.


I think I saw on SportsCenter, that they're only like 4 1/2 games out of the division lead. I'm not gonna say it's ALL pudge, but he's a huge part of it. If the Tigers can win some head to head matchups with division foes (White Sox, Twins, Indians) then they can make the playoffs. It's not gonna be easy by any means, but it's a lot better than where they've been for the past decade or so. The season was basically over by the openings month's end


Let's go Tigers

I don't think they will make the playoff's this year unless other division rivals go on losing streaks the same time the Tigers get hot. I can see this team as, I'l go as far as second round in the playoffs, (Including wild card), in as few as two years. But only if Mike Ilitch,(sp), continues to make moves. Especialy in the area of pitching.

I'm starting to like the Tigers...I mean, I always used to feel bad for them because they sucked so bad, but I'm glad they're starting to improve...I doubt a playoff appearance is likely, because the White Sox or Twins are a fix, and the Red Sox or Angels are wild card probables....but improvement in any way can't be bad...
