Bad start

Recommended Posts

Danny Knobler wrote an article yesterday about the Tiger's bad Aprils in recent history. They have not had a winning record after their first 6 games since 1987. At the end of April, they were 8-15 in 2001, 8-17 in 2002, and 3-21 last year. This year they will play 23 regualr season games in April.

I predict they will have a record of 10-12 this year on May 1 (I expect one to be postponed.)

And in 1987 after those six games they got off to an actual start of 11-19...and ended up with a 100-win season.

I'm looking forward to a good, no wait, very good April this season. We get a heavy dose of the Tribe, who for some reason are the most overrated team in baseball going into this season. God forbid I blasphemy Peter Gammons holy word.

I believe they won either 93 or 98... but close enough :)

Yes you were correct, it was 98 wins...I thought for some reason they won an even 100 that year. Toronto won 97, and the Tigers won the East on the final day of the season on a home run by Larry Herndon and Frank Tanana pitched a shutout. Had to be one of the most exciting finishes to a Tiger season I've ever witnessed!

Didn't they play the Jays like 7 of the last 10 games?? That was probably the best end to a season that I've ever seen! Not that we've been to the playoffs since then, but still! I remember that like it was yesterday. Frank was AWESOME that day.
