The Detroit Tigers have managed to do what seems impossible: play a full season of compelling and not-that-awful baseball. First-year manager A.J. Hinch brought his club into today's action only seven games under .500 after limping out to a disastrous 9-24 start. There are plenty of avenues for enthusiasm leading into the future, including centerfielder Derek Hill, who has proven himself more than capable of patrolling Comerica Park's cavernous outfield and shown flashes of pure electricity at the plate and on the basepaths.
