It’s hard to believe that the Tigers had Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, Justin Verlander, and Max Scherzer and never won a World Series. They never even won a World Series game (lost 4-0 to Giants in 2012.) Now, the Tigers are in a full rebuild. Cabrera is the only remaining star from those great teams and he is very quickly fading away. So what do they look like now? Let’s dig into the 2019 Detroit Tigers.
The Detroit Tigers are coming off back to back 98-loss seasons. However, the future is beginning to look bright, as the club has the No.18 ranked farm system in the big leagues. Led by a plethora of pitchers and outfielders, the club is looking to move into the future on a positive note.
Once again, we are witnessing why baseball teams extending players too far can be disastrous. I’m not talking about paying them too much. I’m talking about giving them long contract extensions that, and I rarely use this term, ALWAYS end up proving a player’s talents are one thing, but what their bodies will allow them to do is another thing entirely.
