The Tigers will get a taste of interleague play this week when they travel to Arizona. Detroit was 14-4 last year against the NL and is 29-7 the past two seasons. Of course, that means the Tigs are 90-92 against the AL since the end of 2006.
If this year is going to turn around, now would be a good time. Detroit had two days off because of a rainout and scheduled off day, and now get KC, Arizona, Seattle and Minnesota. The Tigers, for all their flaws, remain only 4.5 games out of first place, so it's hard to say it's now or never, but it would be OK to show a little fire here.
