Tigers start the regular season this afternoon.    I think we have enough talent to win the American League Central Division.  Given a few breaks, we could make it back to the World Series -- and WIN IT this time.  That is what I think, although a recent poll suggests otherwise.

Among adults who watch baseball regularly, 21-percent answering a Rasmussen Reports poll think Philadelphia will enjoy another World Series victory this year.  Boston follows with 17-percent believing the Red Sox will once again win the Fall Classic, while 15-percent are putting their faith behind the New York Yankees.  Not many people are predicting a repeat season for San Francisco.  Only six-percent foresee the Giants taking a second consecutive championship title.  Even fewer feel the Texas Rangers, who earned last year's American League pennant, will have a successful World Series run this year.
