Notes and links of interest:

The Tigers are playing crazy good at home this season. After last night's come from behind win, they are 29-12 at Comerica Park. That's winning at a .707 clip! Now if they could do something about their 16-25 road record, which a lousy .390 winning percentage.

The Tigers have passed the halfway point of the season, and Miguel Cabrera sits atop of the traditional Triple Crown categories. Miggy is 1st in BA at .343 and RBI with 73, and tied for 1st in HR with 21. There hasn't been a Triple Crown winner in many of your lifetimes (For you youngsters in the audience, Carl Yastrzemski was the last Triple Crown winner back in 1967). We could be watching baseball history as the season progresses, folks.

Sports Illustrated's Midseason Awards considers Cabrera as the "clear choice" for AL MVP. Writer Tom Verducci also calls Miggy one of the "two best hitters in baseball." (The other being Albert Pujols) His AL Midseason Rookie of the Year is Brennan Boesch (who just won his 2nd straight AL Rookie of the Month award), followed by Austin Jackson (the winner of April's AL Rookie of the Month).

SI can also get a little ridiculous at times. Such as Joe Sheehan predicting the AL Central ends in a 3 way tie between the Tigers, Twins and White Sox...with the Tigers winning a ladder-style playoff. Maybe I spoke too soon...

Looking at some possible future Tigers, the team announced the signing of 3 more draft picks, a college players. The newest members of the farm system are: 5th round pick LHP Alexander Burgos, 6th round selection C Bryan Holaday and 7th round draftee 2B Corey Jones. FWIW, Holaday is the reigning winner of the Johnny Bench Award, given to the top college catcher.
