Tigers versus AL Central

BASEBALL

I frequently hear that the Tigers do not do well against AL Central opponents.  I looked at five years worth of data.

You can see that the Tigers have done OK given that their overall win percentage is just 0.510.  The only overall exception is the White Sox.  However, if you would like you can blame the Indians for 2007 and the Twins for 2009.
