The 2013 Detroit Tigers season ended with and 5-2 loss in game 6 of the ALCS. The World Series drought will last at least 30 years.
Besides the starting pitching, this team just wasn’t very good. The Tigers rode the starting staff as long and hard as they could but in the end the pitchers needed help, but couldn’t get it.
The Tigers need to be retooled for 2014 and nobody is untouchable including Miguel Cabrera.
The bull pen was marginal.
The defense was marginal.
The offense was embarrassing.
I don’t want to see Prince Fielder back in a Tigers uniform next year. It seemed that he found a way to hurt the team, in some form or fashion, in critical moments during this entire series. Besides doing nothing at the plate, his fielding cost the Tigers in the bottom of the 9th in game 2, and his base running killed a rally again last night.
I feel bad for the the starters. They did more than any single team component should be asked to do. They were good enough to win a World Series.
Iggy made a crucial error yesterday.
The Tigers need to do what the Red Sox did last year, dump over priced, over paid, prima donnas, and replace them with members of a team.
This is still stinging.
