Playoff-bound Tigers keep the party going back home - MLB - Yahoo! Sports

The Sun is shining a little brighter today isn't it? Yes as you can see from the headlines, the Tigers clinched a play-off berth for the first time in a very long time.

This does not mean its all over and now we wait for the post season, no there are still a few goals to reach, the first being to take the AL Central and second, to get to the World Series.

The Tigers have been first since May 20th, or some time like that and it would be a shame to lose first to the hated Minnisota Twins.

Its amazing how strong the Central is, here is Detroit with one of the best records in Baseball, fighting to retain first place. To compare the Yankees, which is a percentage point behind Detroit in the overall standings, won their division last week. Still it is good and I hope the guys enjoy this day off, because its not over yet.

By the way, congratulations also go to the Toledo Mud Hens for winning the International League Championship and to the West Michigan Whitecaps. They won the Midwest League Championship. Both teams are part of the Tigers organization so with winners being produced in the minors the promise for more championships coming to Comerica Park seems a reality into the future.

By the way, Tigers magic number is 6.
