3 Predictions for the Detroit Tigers home opener
By Tyler Kotila
Detroit Tigers home opener brings excitement.
The Detroit Tigers are kicking off their home-game slate with a three-game set against the Boston Red Sox today at 1:10 PM ET. The Detroit Tigers are fresh off of a series victory over the Houston Astros, who took home the World Series trophy in 2022.
The two-game series win over the Astros helped the Detroit Tigers improve to a 2-4 record, the same as the Boston Red Sox, who are currently in fifth place in the American League (AL) East. The Tigers are looking to return to the win column after dropping the series finale against the Astros.
While the festivities will get well underway in the morning, Detroit will be rocking, even with a tough on-field product. It's Opening Day for the Tigers, and Opening Day at home means more to the fans. It's the spectacle itself that grabs ahold of the fanbase and captivates them.
The Tigers may not win more than 65 games in 2023. It could get ugly. But, as fans, it's too early to jump to conclusions, and trying to stay even-keel is important. Plus, it's Opening Day, and there's nothing more exciting than being a part of the festivities.
