Inconsistency continues to plague the Tigers

Going into this week seemed like the perfect time to build on their play from last week and put up back-to-back winning weeks for the first time in awhile…well that didn’t happen. The Detroit Tigers went back to playing “bleh” baseball this week, the exact way they’ve been playing for most of the season after their incredibly hot start.  It has finally caught up to the...
