Update: 6:32 p.m. Saturday -- The pain keeps on coming. On Saturday, the Tigers lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 in Toronto, extending its losing streak to 11.



Update: 11:58 p.m. Friday -- The Tigers lost to the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday. That makes 10 losses in a row and puts the team 11 games under .500. and 10 games out of first.


Update: 4:03 p.m. Thursday -- Well, the Tigers lost again, going down in defeat Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park to the Oakland Athletics by a score of 4-2. That's the ninth loss in a row. The Tigers are now 10 games under .500.


Update, 11:28 p.m. Wednesday: The Tigers lost to the Oakland Athletics 3-0 on Wednesday night at Comerica Park. It was the eighth loss in a row.

The team is now nine games under .500. and is nine games out of first place. 

Original article, Wednesday morning:

Not so long ago, the Tigers were closing in on first place and close to playing .500 ball. Then came the slump.

On Tuesday night, before a home crowd at Comerica Park, the Tigers dropped their seventh straight game, losing to the Oakland Athletics 9-7. 

The Tigers were leading 6-0 and then later 7-3, but that wasn't enough.

Now, the Tigers are 36-44 and eight games out of first in the weak Central Division.

Frankly, the Tigers are playing like most fans expected. There were low expectation from the get-go, and for a while the Tigers played much better than anticipated.

Still, it comes as no surprise that the team is in the midst of a losing streak. And there's little likelihood of the Tigers playing .500 ball, even if they get hot again.

Oh well, the Lions' season isn't that far off.
