    I think the Drillers might be able to beat them.

          If I'm not mistaken, the Sacramento River Cats of the Pacific Coast League have the best AAA record at 77-46. The team has a .276 AVG with 129 HR and 702 runs scored. They also have a team ERA of 3.84 and 9 SHO.

          The Tigers have a team AVG of .233, 101 HR, and 385 runs scored with an ERA of 4.99 and 4 SHO. Of course, this is against much superior competition, but I'd still take the Cats in a seven game series 4-2. The talent in Sacramento may be raw and underdeveloped, but that's still got Detriot beat.

              And yes I realize the Texas League is AA.

              I voted yes to the best AAA team beating them as well.

                But Dale, are you saying that the qualtity of play is the same in AAA as it is in the Majors? Than why are the River Cats in the PCL? Tigers all the way. They are a major league team.

                    It would be an interesting series, but I think the Tigers could still win.

                          I'm not sure I agree that the Tigers are a Major League team. I think they're a AAA team wearing Major League uniforms. I've never seen the River Cats play, I was just looking at their records. It's obvious, though, that they are a team that's used to winning. Detroit is a team that is used to losing. In sports, that makes a tremendous amount of difference. My money goes against the Tigers every time.

                            I have watched probably as many Tigers games as anyone on earth this season and I can say without a doubt it would go to the AAA team. Half the players on the roster played with Toledo this season, and half of Toledo's roster played for Detroit this season.

                            Using this as a basis, it would be very easy to compare the Tigers to the Mud Hens, and there are 20 teams in AAA who are better than the Toledo Mud Hens.

                            I'd pick 15 of those 20 teams to beat the Tigers (having never seen any of those 20 teams play) and the best ones to sweep the Tigers in a seven-game series.

                              Anything can happen. Even though the Tigers are atroscious this year, they still have 37 wins, including 8 wins each against the first-place White Sox. So even a mediocre AAA team, like the Syracuse SkyChiefs or the Rochester RedWings (Steve Bechler RIP) could beat the Tigers, but I've give it to the Tigers in a 7-game series against any AAA team, International or Pacific.
