Magic number down to 7 after win number 9 in a row! I would love to catch the Yankees and I think there is an outside chance considering the Tigers remaining schedule is very weak and the Tigers are on such a roll. I would be thrilled though just to stay ahead of the AL West contenders and get to open at home in the ALDS at least. I'm pretty biased, but after seeing Comerica in 2006 for the playoffs, I don't know there is a better atmosphere in baseball.
The division could very well be won by the end of this road trip. Exciting times to come.
First 9 game win streak since may of '84. This team is on fire right now and at the perfect time. The playoffs can't start soon enough. With Verlander pitching twice in a 5 game series, the Tigers have a chance to beat anyone.
