Well, it was a fun ride, but it unfortunately came to a disappointing end. Congrats to the Texas Rangers—they really do deserve to be in the World Series, and the Tigers took them to Game 6 of the American League Championship Series, which is really amazing.
Instead of sitting around feeling down about this loss, let's look at the positives:
- The Tigers won their first AL Central title since joining the division.
- Everyone gets to take a nice long rest—especially Alex Avila.
- The Tigers were only a few clutch hits away from sweeping this series.
The last point is huge. There are holes in the lineup that need to be addressed as well as holes in the defense that definitely need some fixing. I believe these moves can put the Tigers in the World Series next year.
