Just goes to show...something. I don't know what.
Actually I do: Doesn't much matter how many you win as long as you get into the dance. Congrats to the AL champion Tigers.
The Tigers were arguably the 6th or 7th best team in the AL this season (NYY, BAL, TAM, OAK, TEX, LAA), but the playoffs are pretty random (unless you're the Cardinals and just win using Beltran, intangibles and magic).
