Uncustomed Heroes of 2018: Tigers
I'll note that I did get to see Miguel Cabrera play one of his few 2018 games, and I was very impressed, especially by his defensive abilities. To be honest, a lot of the rest of his career is just the frosting on his surefire Hall of Fame case, but it's nice to see he can still play pretty damn well. The guy's 35, and he's signed for 5 more years, so...in theory he may have one or two good years left, and it may not be a Pujols thing where you're just waiting for the contract to give out, but...it was sad to see a great like Cabrera sidelined for most of the year.
Coming Tomorrow- A team that came in with great expectations, floundered for 4 months, then somehow got really good at the end of the year.
