Hmm. I seem to remember watching a pretty crappy little team back in 2003 that barely avoided going down in history as one of the worst single seasons by a team ever. And in 2006, here we are... Is this one of those "5 year plans" that Randy Smith always talked about, but failed miserably at?

Clinching the playoffs is a good start. Now to try and hold onto the division.

I think the Tigers front office did a good job with this bunch. Worked the farm, signed important vets like Mags and Pudge and then hiring a great manager. ;-D ;-D

The shadow of '03 makes this all the sweeter! I hope they can beat the Royals enough to eek out the division title, it would be only right to give the fans the home games against the A's.

Congratz Tigers! Thank you for a very enjoyable season and good luck in the play-offs ;-D

Even though Leyland is clearly prioritizing being ready for the playoffs over winning the division, just watching the race for the division title is exciting. Much moreso than watching the team spend the last couple of days of 2003 trying to avoid an all time record of being bad. I would also love to see a Twins-Tigers ALCS.

I'd rather see it go Tiges/As, then Tiges/Yanks in the ALCS. I love the idea of playing the Yankees, but would much rather play them after having gone through a few playoff games first.

I primarily want to see the Twins due to the rivalry they have going. A divsion race that goes down to the final day and the fact that they were the Tigers' last playoff opponent back in '87 (which I was too young to remember well). Of course the Yankees would be an interesting matchup, because they're the Yankees. To win the World Series, knocking out the Yankees feels like a must. The A's don't really excite me at all. A dangerous opponent they definitely are, but they are soooo boring. No rivalry and they're not the Yankees. I guess at least it would be nice to have a chance to shut up all those who worship Billy Beane like he's some kind of god of GMs.

I don't know. Would it be good to get the Yankees done and over with while Randy Johnson's status is still in doubt and Sheffield is still adjusting at first base and hope Wang's playoff inexperience will hurt them? But then again, I'd rather the Tigers not open up the playoffs on the road in Yankee Stadium and instead open up on our own turf against the A's who are only 6 games over .500 on the road and 1 game over .500 against AL Central opponents. Not as exciting, but probably better for this team's chances in the postseason.

Hopefully by the time I check this forum again tomorrow, the title of this thread will have changed to "Tigers clinch division!"

I hate the Twinkies, it's that simple. As long as they play in that joke of a stadium I cannot look at them as worthy of respect. More of a beer league softball type team with Johan.

You will have to learn to like the idea of playing the Yankess. I don't see how they stand a chance given how much they packed it in the after clinching a playoff spot. Snap your fingers and they reverted to '03.

Can they get it back together in NY? I'd feel a lot better about it if they had taken the last five games more seriously. Scarey how bad the pitching suddenly looks 8-o
