Well...as not to over do the potential of this team like the season not to be mentioned here (hint: 2007 season) but this team has a lot of good intangibles and will have a good season. HITTING: Potentially awesome. Jackson will approach a 20-20 season. Cabrera may have a better year this year and NOT win the triple crown because the MVP will be batting behind him in Fielder ,who will benefit from Martinez return to DH. I only hope he doesnt play in more than 130 games as to not stress his legs. Hunter brings a pro bat to the lineup so we have Martnez/Hunter >Young/Boesch. Infante for a whole year will be solid. The keys for the offense will be Avila and Peralta. PITCHING: Best starters in baseball. The best 1, 2 3 4 and 5th starter on any team. The problem will be in having a confident and consistent bullpen. I could care less who closes, just get the third out. DEFENSE: Not as bad as you think. As long as we make the plays, we should make and not extend innings. I'd rather have Worth on the bench than santiago, but his time will come. HITTING PREDICTIONS: AVG. HR RBI JACKSON .285 21 66 HUNTER .303 17 65 CABRERA .327 37 130 FIELDER .310 44 128 MARTINEZ .318 16 92 PERALTA .277 19 82 DIRKS .294 9 55 AVILA .279 15 70 INFANTE .300 12 68 PITCHING PREDICTIONS: W L ERA VERLANDER 23 6 2.54 FISTER 14 10 3.33 SCHERZER 16 9 3.57 SANCHEZ 17 10 3.75 PORCELLO 15 8 4.11 PREDICTION: Tigers will make a huge mid season trade and that will carry them to their first World Series championship since 1984!!! GO TIGERS!
