The Detroit Tigers did not have the easiest season for sports bloggers to cover. There were ups, downs, and plenty of Maalox moments.
It provided for a lot to write about, a lot to be upset about, but more to be happy about.
Will this year’s Detroit Tigers postseason run be different than the previously three? Will they finally win the franchise’s elusive fifth World Championship?
We gathered the crew of Motor City Bengals together to not only tell you how the Tigers will fare, but who they see advancing through the playoffs.
Follow along with the slideshow to see everyone’s picks–and some great shots of the Tigers AL Central title celebration.
First up, our newest member of the MCB, Bryan Koobie:
I see the Tigers getting to the ALCS and losing to the Angels. The Tigers have had a tough time with them the last few seasons, especially in Anaheim. If the A’s or Royals end up beating the Angels in the ALDS, then I like the Tigers to make it back to the World Series.
