I disagree with that assessment. I'd much rather compete with the Yanks and Rays, at least over the next three years. Neither is likely a match for the Tigers for that time frame.
Now, in the future ten years from now? Of course. But the Tiger's are positioned to be the league favorites for the next few years, barring some catastrophic injuries to players without a history of injuries.
