There are striking resemblances to the the start of the first half of the season and the start of the second half of the season for Detroit. In the first half, the Tigers were red hot, winning at an impressive rate and starting the season 9-3. They proceeded to lose seven of their next eight games and had a disappointing first half to their season.
The second half was off to a great start for the Tigers, winning nine of the first 12 games and hitting the cover off the ball. They are now in a slump, losing five of six after the blistering second-half start.
The similarities to each half are eerie, but hopefully the same trend does not continue for this talented team.
Now that the trade deadline has passed, here is what I believe will happen to this unpredictable Tigers team.
