With the victory over the New York Yankees yesterday, the Detroit Tigers have shown that they can handle one of the best teams in baseball, along with the pressures of the postseason. My question to the wise Pit of UG is this: Can the Detroit Tigers win the World Series? I think that they can, and I hope they do. After losing 119 games, it has only taken a couple years for them to turn it all around. If a team can do that, I think that they can pull it off.
The statement below is true.
The statement above is false.

Hells yeah they can win it all. After the beating they put on the almighty Yankees, it's all downhill from here.

Makes it worth it sticking with the Tigers through the shitty years....

Haha. Yeah the royals have had a bad go of it too. For a good while there, the Tigers and the Royals stunk up the whole league with their shittyness. Im glad Jim Leyland came into Detroit and started cleaning that team up......

Well at least you guys have hope and can build better teams. It's going to take the Blue Jays 50 years to make the playoffs as long as The Yankees and Red Sox continue to try and buy championships.

I say no. I don't think they can win anything. They're useless.

But then again I have no idea who they are, or what half the rules to baseball are... so what do I know?

That's kind of what I meant. The Yankees think they can just throw millions around and buy a World Series. Detroit has about 1/10th the payroll and beat the shit outta the Yankees......

I agree with you. I don't see any AL team that made the playoffs giving a problem to the Mets. We lost 2 of our best starters and still swept a 3 game series.

Everyone knows you need pitching in the postseason. I think the Tigers have sufficient pitching to make it past the A's.
It's not the fear of what's beyond
It's just that I might not respond

I think I'll resurrect your mom (provided she's dead) and make her suck my nads.

But for real, the Tigers have got it. Oakland may be a challenge, but my hometown heroes will pull through.

I dunno, the A's have excellent pitching as well. Zito, Loaiza, Haren and Harden is arguably the best rotation in the postseason. The A's also have an extremely under-rated defense, and their offense, while not spectacular, is hot right now.

Plus, the have the most clutch hitter in the game: Marco Scutaro
