Tigers have slim playoff hopes as they face Royals

Managers and players always talk about not giving up, whether it's fighting until the 27th out of a game or battling until the postseason chances are officially eliminated.

The latter is the case for the Kansas City Royals as they were eliminated with Tuesday's loss to St. Louis. The Detroit Tigers are hanging by the slimmest of threads heading into the opener of a four-game series Thursday night in Kansas City. The Tigers will be eliminated with a loss or a win by Houston.

The four-game series will be all about the future, even though it's hard to accept the fact that the postseason is out of reach.
