4 Months until the Detroit Tigers begin spring training

There are 30 teams in Major League Baseball; 20 of those 30 teams never even make it to the playoffs. Of those who do, only four make it to a league championship series.

The Detroit Tigers, therefore, did better than 26 of the 30 other MLB teams. That's not too shabby. I would have preferred to have them play in the World Series. Still, making it to the American League Championship Series is a long way from where this team was 10 years ago when they were one of the worst in the history of major league baseball.

The off-season gives them a chance to recover and come back even stronger. Spring training will start in less than four months from today. That's when the Detroit Tigers will begin their push for the 2014 World Series. Until then, I believe it's time to celebrate how far they came as well as to root for the Detroit Lions, Pistons, and Red Wings.

Go Tigers!
