A.L. Central Update

September 1, 2016

The good news for the Detroit Tigers is that they swept a three game series at home vs the Chicago White Sox.

There is “bad news” as well in that the Cleveland Indians maintained their four and a half game lead in the American League Central Division by sweeping a three game home series of their own, vs the last place Minnesota Twins.

As Labor Day Weekend approaches, Cleveland in a bid for their eighth, “one eighth” division title still has a nice lead. The Tigers are now tied with the Baltimore Orioles for the lead in the race for playoff qualification.

Rather than think of the dreaded wild card presence, I think of a great Detroit/Baltimore association from the better, if not glorious past.

The association is baseball great Al Kaline, who played his whole career for the Tigers and was from Baltimore.
