Who would have thought it, the Detroit Tigers in the hunt for October? This must mean that the world is coming to an end when we see the Tigers this early in the season in the position to make an impact in Baseball. Either that or the Tigers are winning by forfeit. Regardless of how they are doing it, the fact remains that the Tigers are winning and doing so quite well. July is not even here and the team is looking like they are a contender to be in the post season already. Could this be a sign of things to come for the second half of the season?
Halfway to a Championship
With the halfway part of the season soon approaching the burning question for the Detroit Tigers is, will the streak continue? With the team only 3 and a half games out of first, there is little doubt that the team could have the top spot in the division before the All-Star break. That is if the team is not distracted and loses their focus. While the team is in second place in the division, there are a few things that need to be looked at. The last ten games they have had a record of 5-5 with a win streak of one. This is the sound of a team that is scratching and clawing for their spot in the division. While they do have a little breathing room as the White Sox are nine and a half back, things can always change quickly.
The Power is in the Bat
One thing that can be contributed to the success that the Tigers have had is the fact that there is a lot of power that is in the batting order of the team; this as a result means that there will be a lot resting on the current roster staying healthy. This will be crucial if the team is looking to keep their hold on the division or even advance. The batting order is perfect and any slight change may throw the team into a tailspin that they will not recover from. If things remain positive, then the team is looking to make a lot of improvements in the coming months as they look to return to the post season.
In order to have a chance at winning games, you need to make sure that you have the kind of talent that will deliver that. The bullpen for the tigers is in a position that they will be able to deliver the best possible games that they can. There are two sides to any good team, and the pitching department of the Tigers has gotten a little bit of a bad reputation in the past. When the Tigers are losing it is the Pitchers fault, when they win, it is because of the power at the plate. A team is only as good as the two parts that make it up.
The rest of the season will be one of two things, the best that the team has had in the last few years or another case of so much promise thrown down the drain, the jury is still out, but early indications show that this may be a good year for the team. Only time will be the true judge as to what will happen.
