Record: 82-72, tied for first
Remaining schedule: Royals (5), Twins (3)
Both the Tigers and White Sox have similar strengths of schedule remaining, but the Tigers are surging in the second half behind MVP and Triple Crown candidate Miguel Cabrera. Their pitching has also been better in the second half, as Doug Fister and Max Scherzer have complemented Justin Verlander.
Prediction: Win division
