The Detroit News’ Lynn Henning says outloud what most Tigers fans are probably thinking:

You can be a .500 club and be an interesting break-even team. Or, you can be a .500 team that’s dispiriting and a turn-off.

The Tigers of 2010 are, in this view, definitely interesting. They were intriguing at spring camp, they were a pleasant mystery out of the gate in April, and they will remain a team that will intrigue and entertain for the duration of this season, even if they are the .500 club that was all along envisioned.

Ouch…but true nonetheless.
