Ain’t no party like a Tigers party cuz a Tigers party is a 4-game Sweepsmas opportunity.

The Tigers are terrible. There’s no way around it, and it’s hardly a clever commentary on a team that’s won 30 of their first 100 games, but it’s been put in stark relief over the past three games. This afternoon we’ll see the Mariners run out an opener in Matt Wisler, as well as much of their ramshackle assortment of utility-men and catchers. It’s a bizarre crew, but it’s been more than enough to handle Detroit so far. That means Ryan Court gets a second straight start, while Austin Nola hits ahead of Kyle Seager.
