    so who are the Tigers' rivals?


    I am a lifelong tiger fan and I don't know

    in interleague we play Arizona when the natural rivalries are going on

    I am told Clevelend...but its not like Cleveland and Detroit have had heated pennant races.

    I say Chicago, just because thats our rival in other sports

    I think that, historically, the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry is pretty over-blown. They've only been good at the same time in the late 40s, mid 70s & the early 2ist century. The catalyst for this particular rivalry is ESPN.

    Yanks and BoSox have been rivals ever since the Babe was bought by the Yankees.

    The BoSox and Yanks have only become "rivals" in recent years. The Dodgers - Giants and Cubs-Cards rivalries go back a long, long time.

    started a topic Classic Divisions/Rivalries

    Classic Divisions/Rivalries

    hopefully this makes sense

    prior to '69 when there were no divisions what were the rivalries in baseball? I know about Red Sox/Yankees and Giants/Dodgers...but other than that? The reason I am interested is because looking at the history of my team and then where they play today it seems that either they had no rival or baseball didn't care about their rival.

    for the longest time the Tigers had pennant races with the Yankees and Red Sox. then when divisions were created they were in the east with the Yankees and Red Sox. While I was growing up the Blue Jays were the team to beat. Then when the divisions were changed they stuck Detroit in the Central along with Cleveland who was in the East with us and Chicago and Kansas City and Minnesota.

    While part of me is glad that the Tigers are not stuck in the East with the Yankees and Red Sox, another part of me sees the history and feel like the team has been shafted a little bit.
