I wonder if this is going to be the Tigers turn to have a season similar to the Sox in '07. On paper, team looks solid and then the wheels come off the wagon. That's baseball.

I can't say I feel sorry for them. They've spent more than every team in baseball except the NY Yankees. I hope they get buried early so that all we have to worry about are the Indians this year.

wow, Grili's e.r.a. is a nice 15.43.....I wonder how it got so high:D:

He has it back up to 19.29 with a one-inning outing in which he game up two earned runs. It could have been worse, considering he left the game with the bases loaded. The thing is, his ERA exceeded 20 coming into the game, so this was an above-average-so-far appearance for him.

A hit by Varitek today and some better baserunning by the White Sox in Detroit and his ERA wouldn't be much worse.

It wasn't that long ago that you figured the Tigers to open the season with a big losing streak. I'm glad to see the tradition revived.

He might be a nice guy (I don't know for a fact) but he's a manager with a career losing record. (Currently .495.)


Yes, after the Tigers two solid seasons, he still didn't break over .500 as a manager.

And this season isn't going to help his winning percentage one bit.

This first week has proven the phrase,

"Don't believe the hype."

I just got back from a somewhat lengthy lurk over at Motownsports.com. For the most part, I think they are holding up much better than our posters would be under the circs. (Heaven forbid!)

However, check out the Sox/Tigers 4/6 game thread. Highly recommended; sounds just like one of ours from last year. I especially liked the poster who wrote that, after all, he did predict a blowout!

A more important question is "has any team had a seven game losing streak and still won a championship?' When the losing streak happens doesn't matter.

The White Sox had a seven-game losing streak in 2001, running Aug. 12 through Aug. 20. There used to be a bowling alley in Indiana where U.S. 12 and U.S. 20 converge, so maybe we should have seen it coming. But I digress. One of those games lasted 16 innings. It was a grinding stretch in the heat of summer.

After losing the Aug. 12 game, the White Sox led the second-place Indians by 12 games. With the Aug. 20 loss, the Indians climbed to 8.5 games behind the White Sox. From that point, the Sox won eight more games than they lost and ... unless you're some sort of Cubs fan, you know the rest.

Of course, an opening losing streak is amplified. The Tigers are not truly 7 games below .500 because without those seven losses, they would have a winning percentage of .000. People anticipate the baseball season and they expect the good teams to win a lot of games and the bad teams to lose a lot of games. The fact is, every team wins and loses games.

When the Milwaukee Brewers won their first 13 games of 1987 to set a major league record, they lost the 14th to the White Sox and starting pitcher Joel Davis, 7-1. That was Joel Davis' only win for the 1987 White Sox and thelast win of his career. Streaks are going to end. I don't see any embarrassment in any major league team beating any other.

The 2006 Cardinals lost eight in a row twice and seven in a row once. That team had a crappy regular season record though. Even power teams like the 2002 Angles lost six in a row early in April and were 3-8 at one point.

The Tigers are not a your normal 0-7 team. I would throw away all those useless stats like starting 0-7 and not winning anything because I bet the sample size is very small and not included a team with the talent the Tigers have.

In other words, let's not take them lightly.

Well, teams certainly have gone through long losing streaks before and come back to do fine, the risk you're running by starting off the season so badly is that if you start ou 0-10, you look up and you're something like 5 or more games out of it and while there is certainly still a lot of time to make that ground up, but it is still a lot of ground and a lot of teams can get demoralized and throw in the towel before the season even starts. I don't think Leyland or Dombrowski will allow that to happen though. The Tigers are professionals and they'll rebound. The thing is the seven plus losses might wind up hurting them an awful lot come September when they're trying to catch Cleveland the Sox or the Royals.

Actually, it does...

If you have a 10 game lead on your division, and lose 7 games, losing 5 games of ground, you can rebound quite nicely.

But when you open the season by going 5 games behind the division leader, with all 7 of your losses inside the division, it has an effect greater than just the 7 games.

Thats not to say they can't recover from this - just that it has a much greater impact than if this happened in mid season with a huge lead.

The baseball season is a marathon not a sprint. With that said, the Tigers have way too much talent to remain this way. When they get hot, watch out. However their lack of bullpen is what is going to make the climb back even harder.

Very true, though I will say (as evidenced by the Sox) that the mental edge or lackthereof from the beginning of the season has shown to be a great indicator of the rest of the season.

Of course there are teams like the '05 'stros that come out of nowhere (15 games under) to find success, but a good start keeps teams from pressing.
The best way to win in baseball is to be relaxed. When players start feeling like they have to make the perfect pitch or hit the 5 run homer, they dig a deeper and deeper hole.
Pretty soon the Tigers will REALLY begin to press, and that's not a good thing.

It's all over the place. Most of the regulars, mostly those that have been around before 2006, are being patient and reasonable. "It's only 7 games, it just gets magnified because it's at the beginning" or "I didn't think they'd be that dominant anyway".

But there's others that are ready to fire Leyland and saying things like "they're worse than 2003". Really embarassing stuff. I have no patience for that. This isn't football. I've considered taking a break from baseball message boards because of it.

It just sucks so far. I can't think of one memorable highlight of the 2008 season. Inge and Clete Thomas have played well but that's dwarfed a bit because they're only playing because of Granderson's injury. Even the military flyover on opening day wasn't right because the clouds were too low. You could hear them but not see them.

After 0-3, I wasn't concerned in the least. By Sunday night I was devastated. At least the hockey playoffs start tomorrow so that can alleviate a little of the anxiety. I'd feel better if this weekend was a series at US Cellular. The Tigers are spooked by the White Sox and not a team they should be facing when trying to get it together.

Ohmigawd, can you picture this place if the Sox had started 2-5 instead?

Pffffft... I think West would simply lock it up and turn out the lights.

If that were to happen, I think I'd stop coming here until the season was over...or until ST for '09 rolled around.

There's still time though. The Sox could go into a tailspin, and the place would be up for grabs then.

I can't imagine the douchebaggery getting any worse than it was this offseason - but then again - an 0-7 start would have made the nonsensical ramblings even less tolerable.

I'm hoping this club keeps playing well - I enjoy WSI much more after a win.

My sentiments exactly. Some days during the offseason, I wasn't sure why I was checking WSI. Especially right after the winter meetings. Make a deal, KW! Make a deal! Make a deal!!!! Got downright disgusting.

About the Tigers. They are the only division rival that I actually like. Going to HS in southwest lower Mich., there were quite a few Tiger fans who also liked the Sox. Still have quite a few friends who are Tigers fans. I feel for them right now... to a point. I actually predicted that they would not win the division before the season started. Didn't think they would start this badly, though.

Tonight is a good match up for the Tigers:

Jon Lester* is a talented pitcher, but he's left handed and has control issues. Given the fact that the Tigers line up is far too right handed and patient, it could be a long night for the lefty.


*On a side note, I don't get why a lot of people are crazy about Lester. He had good to great numbers at the minors at a relatively young age, but his command is a real issue. He fits in well with guys like Danks, Lowen and other talented lefties with severe command issues.

So when's this baseball season supposed to start????

:redneck

A sense of humor is very important when things go the way they have been for your team...

A repeat of the '88 Orioles would be scary. :o:

Polanco just made an error for the second straight game.

One wonders whether he will make errors in 186 straight games, just to offset his errorless streak.

and Bonderman just walked in a run. 33 pitches, 19 balls.

Bonderman has 40 pitches in 2 innings. The Tigers need a pitcher to step up and give their bullpen a rest. Too bad for them the one chance they had for a pitcher to do that, he happened to be facing the team that owns him. Talking about Verlander of course.

Bonderman escapes just giving up 2 runs. Still anybodies game, but once again the Tigers are faced with a defecit.

Tigers finally have a lead, up 4-2 in the 4th. Guess who homers? That's right Marcus Thames...after a Renteria 2 run double.
