2011 MLB Playoffs:  Detroit Tigers Bred for a Championship
A Forecast of Things to Come

Tigers are some of nature's most efficient hunters.  They know their prey, they know their weaknesses and they develop counter-measures based on those weaknesses in order to get as close to their enemies as possible.

And then they strike.

Tigers always remain up-wind from those they stalk, never revealing their position to the keen-smelling victim.  Tigers use every inch of their backdrop to blend-in and disappear, always staying off the radar when others look in their direction.  And the buffering pads below their paws let them walk right up behind you, unnoticed.

Fail to take notice of their presence, and all that stalking, preparation, and determination leads to an all-out mauling rarely equaled in Mother Nature.

The Yankees, often viewed as the King of the Beasts in baseball, endured this pain in this year's ALDS, but the true hunting game on the rest of Major League Baseball began many months ago. 

And, now, the Tigers are poised, coming up-wind, out of hiding, right behind the Texas Rangers, and whoever awaits them in the World Series, ready to strike.
