Here come the Tigers. Roar!

So remember when the Detroit Tigers were 2-10 on April 13 and were like really fucking lousy? Admit it: You don't, 'cause that was a long time ago (we don't either; we have the memory of an Alzheimer's patient).

If your memory serves you better than it does ours, you'll recall that the Tigers were a season-worst 12 games below .500 on June 6 at 24-36.

Things have gone more swimmingly of late. Sheesh, they've only lost four games since then and just won their sixth in a row after knocking off the Twins last night. They've gotten over the .500 hump and, at 42-40, sit just five games back of AL Central-leading Chicago.

With such a stacked team, maybe this shouldn't be too surprising, but still: That's a helluva turnaround.

Fun game: The Tigers are 42-40 and five out. The Devil Rays are 50-32 and lead the East by 1.5 games. Who's making the playoffs? Detroit? Tampa? Both? Neither?

Get your Motown on in the comments. Whatever that means.
