Many do not have that right, when you think how badly Inge wanted traded, he could not get out of the contract unless both sides agree. They even have limited trade clauses in many of them so the Tigers can't just up and trade the top players.

Well, no team in the 21st century has gone 0-4 and made the playoffs. A few have gone 0-3 and 1-4 though (I forgot which Smack). I didn't go further than 2001 though.

According to ESPN; no team that has started 0-4 has ever won the World Series!


I think the 2008 Tigers are gonna make history!

To answer your original question...

From 0-4 to playoffs? It has been done
by Danny Knobler
Saturday April 05, 2008, 11:54 AM

DETROIT -- Yes, it has been done. There have been teams that have started 0-4 and gone on to make the playoffs. But not many.

There have been just six, all In the division play era, which began in 1969:

-- The 1999 Arizona Diamondbacks lost their first four games, three in extra innings. They were in first place by May 15 with a 21-16 record, and they won the National League West before losing in the playoffs.

-- The 1995 Cincinnati Reds lost their first six games, in a season that began late because of a lockout. The Reds got to first place by May 30 with a 19-11 record, then lost in the National League Championship Series to Atlanta.

-- The 1985 St. Louis Cardinals (featuring Tigers first-base coach Andy Van Slyke) lost their first four games, two in extra innings. They were in first place by June 21 at 37-27, and went on to make the World Series, losing to Kansas City.

-- The 1977 Philadelphia Phillies started 0-4, at home, just as the Tigers have done. They didn't make it to first place until August, but they won the National League East and then lost to Los Angeles in the playoffs.

-- The 1974 Pittsburgh Pirates lost their first six games, three in extra innings. They didn't get to .500 until Aug. 12, and didn't get to first place until Aug. 25. They lost to Los Angeles in the playoffs.

-- The 1969 Minnesota Twins lost their first four games, including one that went 17 innings. They were in first place a week later, at 5-4, and led most of the season before losing to Baltimore in the playoffs.

Just finished checking 1901-68, and it's true. No other team finished in first place after starting 0-4. So the 1985 Cardinals are the only team to make it to the World Series after starting 0-4. No team that started 0-4 has ever won the World Series.

The strange thing is that it's not unusual for a World Series winner to have a four-game losing streak at some point in the season. Last year's Red Sox had three of them. And 35 of the last 36 World Series winners has had at least one four-game losing streak (two of them had eight-game losing streaks).

The last World Series winner that never lost four in a row? Kirk Gibson's 1988 LA Dodgers.
