The Tigers are currently 39-36 against teams that have a losing record. This is the 4th worst mark in the American League, ahead of only Minnesota, Cleveland, and Kansas City. On paper, their schedule may look like a cakewalk, but if the games were played on paper, they'd have a commanding lead right now.

Not saying it's impossible for them to get hot and catch us these last 2 weeks, but if they did, it would be an anomaly for them. They just have not been very consistent all year long.
