Back in Spring Training many of the baseball experts had predicted the Detroit Tigers with their big name additions would be playing baseball beyond September 28th, the last day of the regular season. While the experts have been wrong about a plethora of predictions, this is one that they may very well have correctly called. Sort of.
The Tigers and their 86 losses are on deck to play a make-up game on Monday against the Chicago White Sox, if the current half-game margin that separates the Sox from the first place Minnesota Twins stands after today’s games.
While the rest of the teams who didn’t perform well enough to make the playoffs get to go home and get in their golf shorts or fishing hats or beds filled with attractive and possibly disease-free females, the Tigers could be throwing on the blue and orange jerseys one last time.
