The Resume

Why they might be annoying:

    After acquiring Ty Cobb in a trade for Eddie Cicotte and $700, they offered another $50 for 'immediate delivery.'
    They lost to the Chicago Cubs in the World Series (1907).
    After contending for most of the early 1900's, they fell to 7th place in the AL (1924).
    They tried to make Babe Ruth their manager but failed (1934).
    Their first game in Comerica Park was almost delayed because of the 34-degree weather (2000).
    Mike Maroth became the first pitcher since Brian Kingman to lose a minimum of 20 games in one season (2003).
    They almost tied the '62 Mets with the worst season for a baseball team, when they ended it with a record of 43-119 (2003).

Why they might not be annoying:

    They ended up winning their first game 14-13 in a comeback fashion.
    They beat the Chicago Cubs in the 1935 World Series.
    Denny McLain won the MVP and Cy Young in 1968.
