Detroit Tigers Win the AL Pennant

Ladies and gentleman, may I present to you the 2012 American League Champion Detroit Tigers!

Tigers fans are among the league’s most passionate and boy howdy are we excited. The only thing more exciting would be a World Series win, their first since the Bless You Boys team of 1984.

The Tigers followed a relatively disappointing 88 win season by ending up in the World Series. How? The team took the Oakland Athletics to task in the American League Division Series, winning that contest 3 games to 2. They then swept the Yankees out of the playoffs by posting one of the greatest collective ERAs in baseball playoff history.

Now, the team awaits the results of the National League Championship Series to see who they will face in the World Series.

The Tigers are widely considered the favorites, whoever it is they may face. That starting rotation, if it holds, will prove nearly impossible to beat.

And oh yeah: Miggy Cabrera and Prince Fielder. ESPN has a great article on our super sluggers and their budding bromance. A quote:

Their bromance was readily apparent after the final game of the regular season when Cabrera pocketed baseball’s first Triple Crown in 45 years and Fielder urged historians and observers to step back and appreciate the achievement. He gushingly referred to Cabrera as the “best ever.”

Who do you want the Tigers to face in the World Series? Let us know in the comments below!
