Well here's a possibility for their lineup next season:
1) Alex Sanchez - CF
2) Fernando Vina - 2B
3) Bobby Higginson - RF
4) Dimitri Young - DH
5) Rondell White - LF
6) Carlos Pena - 1B
7) Eric Munson - 3B
8) Brandon Inge - C
9) Omar Infante - SS (Santiago's done, he will never make it)
Not ultra intimidating or anything, but the most solid it's been in years. A few spots in the order are still questionable, and another free agent (Aurilia?) could alter it a little. Their starting pitching? That is a complete mess.
Bonderman, Cornejo, Maroth, uh.... not really anyone set after that.
Expect them to sign at least one more Starter and a reliever or two. Kenny Rogers or someone is a possibility.
Anyways, we're not exactly getting playoff hopes, but I do think they could surpass Cleveland this year. The Central isn't exactly a beast of a division, but I still expect the Tigers will be in the 90-100 loss range. Then perhaps add a few more free agents next year. Remember, Detroit is a very underrated baseball town, we won't take our team for granted if they actually show us something for a change.
