Race to the Wire or Don't Stumble Now
In July the Major League Central Division Championship was thought to be won with the Tigers comfortably ahead by 10 & 1/2 games. Instead we've got a real cliffhanger. Will the Tigers hold on and win the division or will they even get the wild card position to get in the playoffs? Given everything bad happening in the Motor City car industry wouldn't it be nice to see our hometown heroes go all the way. Can the Tigers match the 2005 White Sox see the Mike Bauman article who also had a large division lead shrink then come roaring back and win it all in the World Series? It's time for the Tigers to be in the World Series again. Every twenty years isn't too much to ask. The Tigers were in the World Series in 1984, 1968 & 1945.
