Hi Jim,
Except for the Yankee series the Tigers seem to hit a little bit of a rough patch. They appear to be in most of these games but still coming up on the short end. Wondering if the bullpen is the problem or have they just fell on some bad luck?

Hi J.Q. The problem is that they aren't a very good team. The Orioles have such great pitching and the Red Sox can hit all day and the Tigers just can't keep up with either one of them. I really can't explain why they've done so well against the Yankees. It defies all logic, so perhaps it's just lady luck.
