The Detroit Tigers are coming off a home stretch that saw some of their largest crowds since 2019 and got the city of Detroit excited about their beloved Tigers again.

As the trade deadline nears and the dog days of August await, the club has had a rollercoaster ride of a season. It has been marked by hot streaks and cold spells, milestone Miggy, 9th inning meltdowns, Bow and Arrow celebrations, and a barrage of winning streaks and losing streaks. Despite all of this, and a 47-55 record, the Detroit Tigers are must-see television.

This team is coming off a seven-game winning streak that led directly into a four-game losing streak. They surge at home and sink on the road, with a 28-22 home record vs. a 19-33 record away from the friendly confines of Comerica.

If this team wants to end up near .500, they need to begin consistently winning on the road to close out the season. Despite all of the ups and downs, for a team that was one of the worst in baseball for the first month and a half of the season, the coaching staff and players have done an admirable job to right the ship and bring some relevancy back to baseball in the city of Detroit.

More people have been talking about this team thanks to standout performances and young stars, and for the first time in what feels like forever they have been making the MLB Instagram and Twitter feeds, including this gem:
