On Tigers Place In Standings, World Cup And Johnny Damon
They didn't play well before that homestand. They sure didn't play well the first games in New York against the Mets. In the meantime, while all the focus is on the Twins, who have also lost the last two nights, the White Sox have won eight straight and are only two games behind the Tigers.
Hmmm. The American League Central is getting rather interesting, isn't it?
- It could get rough for the Tigers in Atlanta this weekend. The Braves are 24-7 at home.
- Italy and France both being eliminated already does tend to make the World Cup less interesting overall. But it does put more focus on the advancement by United States. That's the good part.
- A key player for the Tigers is Johnny Damon. He is on pace to hit .273 with seven home runs and 43 RBI and 12 steals. That isn't the type of production - or lack of it - the Tigers signed up for.
