With pitchers and catchers due any day down in Lakeland, Fla., the 2013 Detroit Tigers season will soon be upon us.
As with the start of any season, there are certain dreams and goals fans and players alike want to achieve to consider any given season a success. These fans want a world championship and so do the Tigers.
Coming off the American League Central division championship and the pennant, the Tigers were within striking distance last year of their first championship since 1984.
Re-signing Anibal Sanchez to stay in the rotation, along with the return of Victor Martinez from injury and Torii Hunter coming from the Los Angeles Angels via free agency, should help the Tigers move closer.
For the Tigers to make the next step, however, they need things to go right from the start. A certain amount of luck is always required to win championships and the talent level is certainly there as well.
If these 10 things can happen for the Tigers, they will be in the catbird seat when October rolls around.
