Detroit Tigers games are not available on any of the streaming services I use at times ( lucky me, lol ),
Why support a substandard product?
That being said, did the Cubs pay extra to Fox to have so many of their games broadcast nationally this year? iirc, the first 3 or 4 games broadcast this year were the Cubs, vs someone.
As for the Tigers, Mike was in it to win it, fielded competitive teams year after year. He died. Professional management took over. The team is just good enough to not set an all time record for failure, but not good enough to be any better than mediocre, again. Just like the “professional management” at the Lions. The Tigers best hope is that management will continue it’s trend of continually expanding the playoffs, to milk the hype, to the point where three quarters of the teams “make” the playoffs. They’ll be playing in snowstorms in December, but hype!, Hype!!, HYPE!!!
Of course, since management seems determined to milk playoff hype to infinity, I have suggested they cut the “regular season” down to 81 games, ending at the All Star break, then three months of playoff hype, so baseball gets out of the way by late October, to make room for the Superbowl hype.
I have also suggested management demand players bring sponsorship money with them. Then, at the start of each inning, we get an advert from the pitcher’s sponsor. At each at bat, we get an ad from the batter’s sponsor. Since the record book doesn’t mean anything now (double headers have been cut to 7 innings), why not cut the game down to 5 innings to make room for more advertising? After all, an NFL game takes over three hours to run out a 60 minute game clock, and, when the clock is running, the ball is only in motion about 8 minutes, so the fan’s willingness to be entranced by advertising and people standing around is nearly infinite, within the limits of bladder and bowel.
