The 2018 Tigers will be bad, but not as bad as the 2003 team

The 2018 Tigers will be bad, but not as bad as the 2003 team

Relax, these Tigers aren’t that bad. With the Winter Meetings now finished, the Detroit Tigers’ 2018 roster is now looking more clear. After the departure of Ian Kinsler, the last of the likely trade candidates is gone, and what is left will largely be the team seeing the majority of the time on the field next year. What does it look like? Well…not so good. Outside of a hopefully resurgent year from Miguel Cabrera and a steadily brilliant season from Michael Fulmer, there’s not much else to get excited about.

Tigers made blockbuster Miguel Cabrera trade 10 years ago today

A decade ago, with one of the games brightest young talents on the market, the Tigers made a franchise-altering move. The rebuilding Detroit Tigers are sitting on the sidelines as teams make pitches for Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani or prepare bids for reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton.
