Detroit Tigers

It's All About

the Chicken This Year

The Detroit Tigers don't want a repeat of their devastating 2006 World Series loss, so they made a major change in how they do things -- and that change is eating more chicken.

TMZ spoke with a Tigers clubhouse rep who tells us a chef comes in and cooks for the players every day and the menu is pretty expansive -- we're talkin' hamburgers, jambalaya, Chinese food, eggs, fresh fruit, soup, Kobe sliders, mac and cheese ... the works.

But the biggest item on the menu is chicken and lots of it. The rep says chicken breast is always available for breakfast and there's always a baked chicken for lunch too, as a healthy option.

The rep says the major difference between the Tigers' menu during their failed 2006 Series run and this year ... "more chicken."

It better pay off soon ... the Tigers are 0-2 against the Giants.

Looks like #28 could use LESS chicken, or other food for that matter.

Can we all please get off this "Kobe" beef thing? Kobe beef does not exist is the US, it cannot be legally exported from Japan. It is simply a marketing ploy to get dumbsh*ts to buy hamburgers, remember that next time you have one at a joint that also offers a kids menu..

Frankly,. some of the look more like football players. They seem a little out of shape to me. Maybe they're eating too much of that chicken.
