With only a couple of games left, the bar betting here in Detroit is pretty heavy on whether the Tigers will make history as the losingest team in modern baseball. How long has it been since your home team has had a REALLY miserable season and how long did it take them to get back to a respectable win-loss season? ...Jack

At least my NY Mets were an expansion team when they dropped a 120 games! Not a team with a 100 year history. Sorry about that D-Town.
I went to a Tigers Game at the end of July. I was wearing Mets gear and cheering all game for Detroit to lose and break the record. Come on D-Town...DO IT! Besides, if you do, you will get another Jim Rome World Tour Stop!!!

Well, Jesse Orosco (what is he , like 52 years old?) threw a wild pitch in the 9th, leading the Tigers past the mighty A.L. Central division champs 9-8. The Tiger's record stands at 43-119.
According to Thomas Boswell in Friday's Washington Post, even if the Tigers lose tomorrow, their record will be a few percentage points better than the '62 Mets (since the Mets had a couple of unmade-up rain outs that year). Time to break out the old video tape of Game 5 of the 1984 World Series. Can't do anything like that in Boston or Chicago, that's for sure!
Maggs swings, it's a drive deep to left! The Tigers are going to the World Series!!!
