Out of Left Field chat, Week 4
Entering the final nine games of the regular season, the Tigers are still within hailing distance of the American League Central lead.
While everybody and their brother figured the Tigers would already have the title wrapped up by now ... they don't. And THEY for sure did not think that.
But they're still in it.
"Obviously, as far as expectations ... I think yeah, we’ve had kind of an inconsistent season, but if we make the playoffs, we’ll be right back at our first goal at the beginning of the season," catcher Alex Avila said.
"I don’t think anybody on our team expected us to blow anybody out of the water.
"To be honest with you, for the amount of times that ‘experts’ are right, there’s probably twice as (many times) they’re wrong. It’s unpredictable. That’s why they play the games."
Still plenty to talk about this week. Join me at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday for a lively discussion.
