Detroit Tigers: Starting to run away with AL Central Division
Having just crossed the quarter pole of the 2014 MLB season, Detroit is proving to be the class of the American League Central division. Despite a 5-4 loss to Cleveland last night, the Motor City Cats have opened a 7 game lead on second place Kansas City and 9.5 games over the last place Indians. The Tigers are on a 15-4 roll and the lead the Majors with a .675 win percentage that is buoyed by an MLB second best .278 team batting average.
Cleveland Indians: Facing an uphill climb out of MLB AL Central cellar
Riding a 3-6 game losing streak over their last nine games, Cleveland has dug themselves a deep hole as they occupy the American League Central cellar.

The Tribe have also had a 2-7 run as well as a 2-8 streak already this season – those runs of futility compute to a 7-21 record.
