Recent Tigers history shows they don't finish strongly in a tight race.

In 2006, the Tigers lead or were tied for the lead in the division from May 20th until the last day of the season. They lost their last five at home to finish one game behind the Twins.

In 2009, the Tigers lead the division by three games with four to play, blew it to finish in a tie with the Twins and lost the one game playoff.

Jim Leyland was manager of both of those clubs.

No matter what, we'll all be here again in April, agonizing over the next season. The circle of life!

I had to quote this because I love this post. Great take on things!

Don't forget about 2007 where they were the race before fading. They also went 6-12 against a team that lost 90 games. That team? Our beloved White Sox...

Just have faith. I'm as nervous as the next guy, but it's a hell of a lot better than where we were the last three years around this time. I'd take this over that anytime.

Last night's loss was so huge because it almost forces you to have to take 2 of 3 from the Angels this weekend. It's a game (like many vs KC the sox should not have lost)

That's not easy, especially with Quintana and Floyd going games 2 and 3.

My thought of the day was this. If the Sox can avoid a losing streak for the rest of the year they'll finish with 88 wins (assuming a win one, lose one for the last 13). That seems doable, yes? That means the Tigers have to go 10-3 to finish in first and 9-4 to tie. Now if that Sox can accomplish that (no more losing streaks this season) and have one more winning streak of more than one game (even if it's just two games) they'll finish with at least 89 wins and that will be enough. IMO.

It's gonna happen and it starts with Peavy kicking the Angels behinds tonight. Can't wait!

I'd bet my house on it too.

Can't wait for that Cleveland series.

Well barring an amazing comeback, tonight sure isn't going to make anyone feel any better.

But l will say that after 2008, I've learned that I shouldn't get so upset about every game because in the big picture as long as we've got a shot then as Hawk would say "it's all good."

All it takes is for us to be in this position at the end of next week.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit

Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.
Amen.

St. Marcellin Champagnat, pray for us
Mary, our Good Mother, pray for us
And let us remember to pray for each other

Hey, it can't hurt us. When feeling down, always seek the power of prayer.

Well, my optimism faltered a little.
