But the Cubs are cursed, and will never win the pennant.

So much for my prediction of the Tigers winning it all. Their overall pitching staff is worse than our's. Can't believe they are about to start 0-4 (all home games too).

Were they w/out Cabrera again?

I can't believe the Tigers are having this much trouble out of the gate.

Tigers will be fine I think, though it's worth noting they're a fairly old team, ave. age 32.

Sheffield has a cut ligament in his finger, which might impair his hitting ability significantly.  THat would be a blow to a key element of their offense.

At least we are not Detroit who is 0-5 (Again, all home games too), the only team in the Majors without a win.   :shock:

Tigers down 9-1 in the 6th inning. They are about to start 0-6!!  I can't imagine how their fans are feeling right now.
