For the past few weeks, we’ve heard far too much about what the Tigers don’t have and not enough about what they do.
Miguel Cabrera is playing hurt. Bruce Rondon is down. The power disappeared in September when the Tigers hit only 16 home runs after hitting 75 in July and August combined. The A’s have home field advantage. The Indians only finished a game behind the Tigers in the Central. Some dude named Henderson Alvarez no-hit the Tigers on the last day of the regular season.
It’s the nature of baseball fans to worry, but it seems lately like Tiger Nation has turned into the Chicken Little Society.
