Tigers pitchers sit in the bullpen overflow area during the Tigers' 14-6 loss to the Royals at Comerica Park on Monday, July 27, 2020.

DETROIT – It was a virtual certainty, they all acknowledge that. And Monday night, as the Tigers played host to the Kansas City Royals inside an empty Comerica Park, it was virtually impossible to ignore the approaching clouds that shrouded a most unconventional home opener in Detroit.

We knew that coming in, of course. And nothing feels quite right about any of this, no matter how hard we all try.
