"Best Record In the Majors."

When was the last time this phrase was applied to the Detroit Tigers? They are currently 27-13, and have won 7 straight. This time last year they were a game under .500 at 19-20, and ended their season 71-91, 20 games under .500. They haven't had a winning season since 1993. Over the last two seasons we've seen both the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox win the World Series after decades of bad luck. Could this season be Detroit's turn to take off? Of course its still early, and the White Sox are nipping at their heels only a game behind. Incidentally 1993 happened to be the year the Jays won their second World Series. Make of that what you will.
