must win five of its final six games to avoid tying the post-1900 major league record set by the 1962 New York Mets, who went 40-120

That record is toast.

Also I love how, in every story about the Tigers, they have a pic of a Tigers player trying to make a defensive play, but the ball is waaaay off to the side, and there's no hope he'll get to it. It'd be nice to see a pic of the ball actually in someone's glove for a change.

Hero? It's farking baseball!

There are no heros in baseball. Except Jackie Robinson.
2003-09-23 08:23:18 AM  
Oh no! This can't be happening!
2003-09-23 08:23:42 AM  
they'd still be eligible for the NL pennant, though...

/ba da bum
2003-09-23 08:24:08 AM  
Will they win the pennant?
2003-09-23 08:24:08 AM  
teh suck
2003-09-23 08:25:56 AM  
BTW Heard on radio this morning - New York Mets fans are pulling for the Tigers to win, it seems they want to keep the record for themselves. Only in NY...

/Suckass Tiger Fan

what happened to 1984?

But still, even if this happens, I will always love those orange and blue bastards.

How very NY Mets of them.

Lions and Tigers and Red Wings ... Oh My!
2003-09-23 08:32:03 AM  
Amusing, yeah, but Hero?

There's no crying in baseball!

Should I be proud or ashamed to live in Michigan?
2003-09-23 08:38:59 AM  
I love the Tigers.
They almost make me proud to be a Rangers fan
You realize if you switch their wins and losses around, they would have one amazing-ass record!!!

I bet they wish it was "opposite day"
2003-09-23 08:40:40 AM  
Well, I dunno about Hero but spiffy for sure
2003-09-23 08:41:25 AM  
DonSlice: Were you born in Michigan, or do you just live here? Because if you were born here, you'd know how to be both proud and ashamed of it simultaneously.

Ashamed on the outside; proud deep down inside, somewhere.

I found a picture of their hitting coach!

Sad. My dad played for their AAA team ( Toledo Mudhens ). Always had a soft spot for the Tigers. The way they played this year I'd bet my dad could get on the team now.

"Your stock went down zackdos, mother farking Fujitsu Heavy Industries one crazy Tiger...Tiger"
2003-09-23 08:48:00 AM  
The Tigers couldn't beat George W. Bush in an independent poll!
2003-09-23 08:49:49 AM  
Born and raised in Michigan. It hurts to see the Tigers like this, especially when I can remember the 1984 and 1968 World Series Championships they won.

Throw in the Lions, which is still my favorite NFL team, and you would think pro sports can not succeed in Michigan. Thank God for the Red Wings and the Pistons recent success.

Hey the Detroit Shock won the WNBA championship, thats something to be proud of, unless of course you think womens pro sports are worthless, which I do.

At least U of M is having a good season! lets not talk about oregon.

I was wearing my Tigers hat ("D") when I got a pizza delivered 2 months ago. The guy looked up, saw the hat, and goes "Whoa, sorry man."

I wonder how bad he'd feel now?

Same guy I apologize "Sorry about the nudie bar wad" when I pay him with 17 ones, "That's okay. Its the best part of the job. Plenty of ones for tonight at the strip bar."
2003-09-23 08:52:19 AM  
At least they can get the record for SOMETHING

I'm goin to Comerica Park Thursday to see history in the making
2003-09-23 08:53:12 AM  
You guys just wait till next year. Break out years for Craig Monroe and Carlos Pena. Quote me on that!!

/please god.
2003-09-23 08:53:39 AM  
God, I love being a Detroit fan! You don't have to pay the slightest attention to baseball. It frees up so much time!

/still in love with Lance Parrish
2003-09-23 08:53:53 AM  
I'm tellin' ya, when the 2004 NHL season gets cancelled, all the Red Wings' money is going to be dumped into the Tigers for a one-season Florida Marlins-style wonder.
2003-09-23 08:56:54 AM  
It's hard to believe I sat in the bleachers and watched them win a World Series 19 years ago. Damn Ilitch and his inability to bring a winner to the Tigers!
2003-09-23 09:02:50 AM  
Good. I'm glad Dmitri Young's team sucks. He is a sucky outfielder, and belongs on that team. He looks like a horrible love-child between Cedric the Entertainer and Warren Sapp. And he has a stupid name.

/hated him when he was a cardinal, hated him when he was a red, hate him now. Why? Cuz he sucks!
2003-09-23 09:04:30 AM  
Yeah but they have the Lions - bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha - oh wait, I live in Browns country. Nevermind.

*backsteps to the exit*

Sorry Sparky!
2003-09-23 09:09:45 AM  
The Tigers don't even deserve to be in Detroit. They should send them to Flint.
2003-09-23 09:11:33 AM  
Baseball season is not over yet?
2003-09-23 09:12:08 AM  
Baseball season ends when Football season begins.
2003-09-23 09:12:15 AM  
The Hanshin Tigers? They rock this year!

Fark Baseball! Badmitton is where it's at. But seriously, baseball sucks my scrotum hard.

Detroit Pussies
2003-09-23 09:23:00 AM  
Yay, now my Twins might actually win something.
2003-09-23 09:26:55 AM  
The Twins?!?....They're gonna have to play the A's! They have no chance linewalker.
2003-09-23 09:27:50 AM  

In Detroit, baseball AND football seasons end when hockey season starts.

Go Lions, and take the Tigers with you.
2003-09-23 09:34:03 AM  
All I can say is thanks Tigers for sucking worse than my Rangers.
2003-09-23 09:35:49 AM  
The Twins?!?....They're gonna have to play the A's! They have no chance linewalker.

No no, I'm referring to the division, not the league.

Shiat, the Twins choke once they reach the playoffs. Much like the Vikings and Wolves.
2003-09-23 09:36:50 AM  
Why is this getting a hero tag? Shouldn't this get a sad tag or something? Mike Ilitch, sell the team.

They're Grrrreeeat!
2003-09-23 09:54:18 AM  
we're gonna blow that crappy 40 win record out of the water baby! this one's gonna stand ... well until next season...

stupid illitch spent all his money on the wings, and the tigers suck because of it.
2003-09-23 09:59:06 AM  
To you people that don't think Ilitch doesn't spend money on the Tigers. Take a look at the AL Centrals payrolls. Guess what? They have one of the highest payrolls in there divison. Why. Because of Randy Smith, and his dumb mistakes. Just be thankful that Juan Gonzalez did not sign that $140 million contract. Give it time. Once Dombroski finds the talent then we can start getting the big time free agents.
2003-09-23 10:00:32 AM  
The Tigers are not failures. They are nearly Major League quality.
2003-09-23 10:02:49 AM  
Rooting for the Tigers to break the record for worst season in modern baseball history is almost as much fun as rooting for the Lions to go an entire season without a single win.

Go Tigers. Er ... Don't Go, rather.
2003-09-23 10:08:21 AM  
as a die hard ny mets fan im also rooting for the tigers...we need a friggin miracle now... damn us mets suck at being losers too...
