Okay, maybe the S.I. curse is real, after all. The Tigers have lost three straight since the issue hit the newsstand. Yesterday, they lost 10-0 to their chief rival, the Chicago White Sox, in horrific fashion, which included, among other things, a Tigers hitter getting thrown out at first by the left fielder. Yes, a groundout to left field. Their lead in the AL Central is now down to 5 games as of this very moment, and could go down to 4.5 games if the White Sox win tonight against the Twins. I don’t like this.

I ran out of mustard again. At a crucial moment.
