Tigers, Padres still have a chance

Last Tuesday, the Tigers were 11 games out, and already thinking they might have to be July sellers. Six days later, they're six games out, and looking dangerous.

"Everybody was burying us, and they should have," manager Jim Leyland said after today's 5-4 win over the Dodgers.

They're not buried, and neither are the Padres, who despite losing two of three over the weekend in Cleveland, have had a similar revival in the NL West. Once 12 1/2 games out, the Padres have already cut it to 6 1/2.

The Tigers added Fernando Rodney to the rotation Sunday, should add Joel Zumaya on Thursday and could add Gary Sheffield next week. The Padres just got Jake Peavy back from the disabled list and brought top prospect Chase Headley to the majors. They should eventually get Chris Young back from the disabled list, too.

Just another reminder of how long the season is, and how quickly things can change. For another reminder, check out something Joel Sherman pointed out in his New York Post column today: A year ago today, the National League division leaders were the Mets, Brewers and Dodgers, and the Padres led the wild-card race. Not one of those four teams made the playoffs.

The Tigers still have a chance but until they improve their own division record (10-19 againest the AL Cent) there is no way they will win the division unless they start taking care of business first.

 

I'm a Twins fan but I still like the Tigers to take the division, they just got to show it first.
