The Detroit Tigers shocked the majors in 2006, winning 95 games and the AL pennant. Two years later, the Tigers fell to 74-88 and found themselves in last place in the AL Central.

The Tigers must try to bounce back from a dismal year in which a much-hyped offense struggled to hit breaking balls and two of the key players in Motown's drive -- Justin Verlander and Magglio Ordonez -- came back to earth.
