Tigers play today in TB already 5 games back. They go into Boston this weekend, a team that just swept Angels in LA. If WS get 2 this weekend, Tigers may be desperate by next week's series.

Should they end up losing today, it'll be 3-12 since the break, and 2 of those wins were games where they were losing at home in the eighth and Toronto's bullpen imploded.

Fading probably isn't the correct term. It's more like collapsing, and the schedule doesn't get any easier for them. After the trip to Boston, they come home to play us (4), the Angels (3), and the Rays again (3), before coming to Chicago (3) and then heading to NY (4).

Against an equally weak schedule as us. They drooped down to a game above .500 I believe before interleague play started. They're an awful road team, bad defensive team, meh offensive team with a pretty good bullpen and meh rotation. They played almost as poorly as we did the first couple months, and yet were fortunate enough to stay above .500. I was scratching my head all season wondering how the Tigers could be above .500 with how poorly they actually played. This was coming healthy or not.

They went into the break winning a series against the Twins, their closest rival in the West when the series started. But by losing the last game before the break, they fell a half-game behind the White Sox. The Tigers seemed to be on a bit of a roll before going into a terrible losing funk.

Take away Zumaya, Inge,Guillen,Maggs and that leaves Cabrera and Damon and the Toledo MudHens....not a shock that a team losing that many guys would struggle.

Sox need to try to put them out of their misery the next two weeks by winning 5 of 7 from them.

They had the hardest schedule in the AL Central throw in the injuries and it hurts.

I no longer follow their score daily. It's just us and the Twins I follow now.

Now they know how we felt in 2007.

Losing half your 25-man roster (the good half) hurts, doesn't it?
