    With the Tigers having lost 10 out of their last 12 games and anticipating the unstoppable Los Angeles Dodgers, it seemed like an appropriate time to ask the question: Are you rooting for losses and a better draft pick down the stretch, or are you scratching out every win you can for the sake of pride and fandom? Both sides have merit. You can play the optimist and hope that the young guys show something down the stretch and the veterans hold the team together. And Mikie Mahtook has been fun, right? As the Chicago Cubs had perfected, there is always next year. Or you can be a pessimist and root for losses and the draft pick. No one will blame you for understanding sunk costs and cutting to the
