Shopping for Halloween costumes with the Tigers – Bless You Boys

 happened to wander into the local Party Halloween City USA store yesterday looking for some costume ideas when, to my surprise, I ran into a bus full of Detroit Tigers players!

I happened to sneak a couple of photos as the guys were trying on costumes.

Everybody knows how tough Detroit’s rotation is with 21-game winner Max Scherzer, 2011 AL MVP Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez and Doug Fister. But their bullpen ranked 12th in the league with a 4.01 ERA, and an elbow injury will keep lefty Phil Coke out of the ALDS, hurting Detroit’s middle relief. The A’s need to force the Tigers’ starters out of the game as early as possible, as they did while taking three of four games at Comerica Park in August.
