The Tigers are 35-15. The Tigers are 20 games over .500. The Tigers...are the best team in baseball, and I don't really hesitate to say that even though it seems patently ridiculous, because it seemed weird when the White Sox were going nuts last season and then they just steamrolled the playoffs and won the World Series.

That Justin Verlander (7-3, 2.55, 1.10) looks like a serious stud, and he should only get better as his command and whatnot improves, because he has the velocity to be a major strikeout pitcher.

I can identify with teams that have been losing so long it feels like they might never win, and also this insane Tiger resurgence gives me hope that the Orioles will just up and do it one of these years.
