    Damn, I was going to gloat about my prediction of the Tigers as a dissapointment... :D

    But yeah, it's way too early for that.

    Meanwhile, it seems the morons in NY were calling FAN tonight lamenting the demise of the Mets because they lost twice in Atlanta.

    What's the most consecutive games lost to start the season by a team that eventually made the playoffs?

    0-5, I believe. I do know that no team that started 0-4 ever made it to the World Series.

    EDIT: 1974 Pirates and 1995 Reds both started 0-6 and made the playoffs. Both lost in the NLCS (Pirates to Dodgers, Reds to Braves).

    Baseball Prospectus gives the Tigers a 16.28% chance of making the playoffs, and that was before tonight's blowout loss. Their PECOTA-adjusted standings give the Tigers a 44.25% chance.

    Panic time in Detroit?

    What the hell makes Bill Pecota an expert capable of adjusting anything other than an athletic supporter?
