    Hey Lt,
    For a guy from Michigan you sure are hard on our home teams, hell I remember when the Tigers won the World Series. I was 9 years old, I'm only 45 now, wasn't that long ago! What do you want, a record is a record!!

    Mikey,

    The Tiggers, uh I mean Tigers are going into the history books this year. To bad it has to be for the worst win/lose record in the history of Baseball.


    MINNEAPOLIS -- Hold on, folks, only a week to go. Plenty of time for history to be made, however.

    The question has been whether the Tigers will break the modern record of 120 losses. Now it should be by how much they'll flat-out shatter it.

    With a 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, their ninth consecutive defeat and the 15th in their last 16 games, the Tigers tied the American League record for losses.

    They and the 1916 Philadelphia A's are the only American League teams ever to lose 117 games. If it's any consolation to Alan Trammell, Connie Mack continued to manage that team for another 34 years.

    Then again, Mack owned the team. That's one way of guaranteeing job security. Look at Mike Ilitch, nobody can fire him -- despite this mess.

    In any case, yes, the Tigers lost again -- for the 23rd time in their last 24 games against the Twins. Lists like that have become a cottage industry, though. For instance, the Tigers also have lost 27 consecutive games when the attendance is at least 30,000.

    They really are a remarkable team. They simply keep losing. And now with seven games remaining, they are only three defeats away from tying the 1962 Mets.



    Tragic number

    The Tigers must win five of their final seven games to avoid matching the 1962 Mets' 120 losses. Here's how the 2003 Tigers compare after 155 games.

    1962 Mets: 38-116-1

    2003 Tigers: 38-117

    We have never figured out why they call it "Australian RULES" George, it appears like there are none.

    "Arial Ping Pong with an odd shaped ball" would be a more appropriate name.

    Its ok Brother,

    Canterbury still hold the Ranfurly Shield, and the NPC. And the All Blacks will take the World Championship out next month.

    Oh, and when there is a World Championship for Rugby, we even invite other countries to play.

    I really don't dislike Yankee fans. We White Sox fans are just bitter, broken down...well you know the rest of it. Lt1951... Your Tigers had the White Sox's number all year. They played the Yanks ok, but couldnt "seal the deal" I would rather watch ladies soccer then the CUBS..(see we Sox fans are living in our own narrow-minded world)... I was really looking forward to the Yankee series,I thought there would be something on the line(for the Sox that is)... I am tired of "waiting for next year".... The whole "morons running onto the field" has me and my buddies questioning our original pride in being southsiders.... One of the biggest sports "riots" you never heard about was when the Bulls won the last time... I dont know if anybody got paid off to keep the press out of it, but it was some REAL hardcore violence. Maybe the Twins and Cubs could go to the World Series, so I could REALLY have hateful thoughts..

    Look at the bright side Mikey, you have a chance of knocking the "Greatest Sports Franchise" in history down from the top spot in all of MLB for season W/L record.

    Who knows, you could even take away their home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

    Please don't "intensely dislike" us Yankee fans. We're really a nice bunch. We don't even RIOT after winning a championship!

    Awaiting the Battery reference

    Mikey,

    Could be worse.

    Be elated that you don't have the Tigers (Tiggers) for a baseball team.

    Be joyful you don't have the Lions (Pussycats) for football.

    Great thing is HOCKEY'S back.
