The Detroit Tigers are in first place and pulling away from the pack. They're a close-knit team with a lot of cohesiveness.

Their starting pitching is the best in all of baseball. Veterans like Tori Hunter, Miggy, and Verlander are among some of the strong leaders in the clubhouse. And new manager Brad Ausmus has brought a new approach to Detroit.

I am sure the immortal Ty Cobb would love this team.
