Tigers win it

Posted at 8:49 PM on October 14, 2006 by Ben Tesch

Well, that sure was quick. The Tigers sweep the A's, and advance to the World Series for the first time since 1984. The Tigers looked quite good on both sides of the ball, as they outscored the A's 22-9 in the four games. Even though Magglio had the big hits, Placido Polanco batted .529 and was named the MVP of the series. Everyone knew they were good, but this is all sort of surprising after the way they ended the regular season, and the way they've been the last 13 seasons: as the losingest team in baseball, including losing 113 games just 3 years ago.

Think they can win it all?
