OT This team does not have the look of a playoff team to me, but we are half way thru August and the Tigers are still in first. Are they going to make the postseason? I am starting to think yes.
Cabrera had 18 homers and 48 rbi's in August and September of last year. Miguel is due for another hot streak and maybe this evening was a portent for Division race. If Miguel does carry the team for a spell, combined with our excellent starting pitching and decent pen we will be in the playoffs.
The Twins are fading away, the White Sox are scary, especially if Peavy comes back strong, but they can't seem to get it together. The Tigers are on a pace to win 87 games and that just might be enough. I think 90 wins will do it.
