The Detroit Tigers are awful offensively-- and I doubt it will get all that much better over the rest of the season with still has 133 games to go. But at 12-17 win seven straight losses, the Tigers decent enough pitching will be negated by eight soft sticks in their lineup. Boesch is okay, but is he the guy to hit behind Miguel Cabrera? Cabrera is the real deal but he's all the Tigers have unless you add in Victory Martinez who is currently injured. And other teams now walk Cabrera rather than let him beat them by hitting the ball all over the place.
But the Central division, as usual, is the worst ini the majors. Chicago and MInnesota are worse than the Tigers and you can't expect Kansas City and Cleveland to remain as they are at the top. Kansas City has cooled off and Cleveland, at 19-8, has the best record in the majors but is hardly the best team right?
The Tigers called up Scott Sizemore to replace light hitting Will Rhymes who goes to Toledo in place of the new second baseman. Sizemore hit .411 at Toledo but everytime he puts on a Tigers uniform his hitting suffers. But the Tigers are desperate for offense and they'll be active through the season, I believe, trying to find some hitters to help Cabrera out. How much longer does the losing go before the media starts speculating on the futures of Leyland and Dombrowski, both in the final years of their contracts.
