The Tigers -- who have the last two AL MVPs in Miguel Cabrera last year and Justin Verlander in 2011 -- have everything except an experienced closer. Still, they should get able to get to the World Series again.

"That's our goal," Tigers' centerfielder Austin Jackson said. "Especially getting there last year, we think we're capable of getting back there.

"The goal is to make the playoffs first and then try to get our way back to the World Series like last year."
