Seems fitting to have this region named after Alan Trammell and I think this region is the hardest one of them all.
No. 7 1987 Detroit Tigers vs No. 10 2011 Detroit Tigers.
Both teams fell short in the ALCS. The 1987 squad was filled with veterans who gave some outstanding performances. Trammell had an MVP-like season and his hot second half carried the Tigers past Toronto on the final day of the regular season to win the AL East.
The 2011 squad bounced back from a third-place finish in 2010 to win their first AL Central crown. This is going to be a nail-bitter. Click below to vote.
No. 3 1984 Detroit Tigers vs No. 14 2014 Detroit Tigers
This one should be a runaway vote. The 2014 team was swept by Baltimore in the Division Series. The 1984 squad…they have a song and a fan site named after their nickname that was uttered by local newsmen and a book about the season by Sparky Anderson. But then again, I could be wrong.
