Assuming that the Detroit Tigers don't completely implode, they will win the AL Central. However, if the season ended today, the team wouldn't have home field advantage in a single series.
The Tigers have the third-best record in the AL, and the team may as well get used to playing away from home.
That's bad news for the Tigers, who are the best offensive team in baseball at home. However, the team has pitched much better on the road, which is why it still has a record above .500 away from home.
The Tigers might not need home field advantage to win a series, but it would certainly be a welcomed luxury.
