Possibly the Worst Baseball Season for the Detroit Tigers
What in the wide world of sports is going on with our Detroit Tigers baseball team? It's nothing but struggle after struggle and there's no end in sight.
Can I be honest with you? I have lost complete interest in watching the Detroit Tigers on any cable channel and for that matter, going to any home games.
The Detroit Tigers are falling apart and they can't get anything together. Just the other day, someone asked me if I wanted to go to a Tigers game at Comerica Park and I said no.
Bottom line is that the Tigers aren't hitting the ball, they're striking out too often, and their pitching needs a lot of work.
And by the way, it's not just me who's losing interest in the Tigers. This from mlive.com.
The Tigers (25-43) are 17 games under .500 and have lost nine of eleven games. They’re on pace to lose 101 games, their worst season since 2019 -- once thought to be the low-water mark of the rebuilding process.
Generally speaking, I love Tiger baseball, but not this season. There was all this hype about recruiting new players and rebuilding the team in the years to come. But how many years is that going to take?
Enough is enough! So why are the Detroit Tigers not playing so well?
Mlive.com tells us:
More than half the Tigers’ lineup is underperforming at a massive, almost unprecedented scale. First baseman Spencer Torkelson (32nd of 32), second baseman Jonathan Schoop (29th of 30), shortstop Javier Baez (23rd of 26), third baseman Jeimer Candelario (24th of 25) and outfielder Robbie Grossman (34th of 35) all rank at or near the bottom of their position in offensive production.
Until things start looking up, my Detroit Tiger enthusiasm is waning and it's waning fast. Let's see some major improvements or the Tigers fan base will slowly diminish.
