VOTE: Who is YOUR Detroit Tigers hero and zero for July?

The Detroit Tigers game with the Chicago White Sox yesterday was almost an after-thought to the drama of baseball’s trade deadline, the excitement over adding another world-class pitcher, the loss of a fan favorite and one of the current starting five.

The addition of David Price and subtraction of Austin Jackson and Drew Smyly did nothing to help or hurt on the field as the Tigers dropped yet another home series, losing to Chicago 7-4.

The loss gave the Tigers a disappointing month of July, finishing at .500, 13-13. It started off with a bang, going 8-4 from July 1 to 13. Then the All-Star break arrived and cooled the team considerably, finishing 5-9. They still hold a four-game lead over Kansas City.

So here’s your chance to decide which Tigers’ hitter and pitcher had the best month and who was the goat.

First up, the hitters. AJax is gone now, but after many fans complained about his lack of production in May and June, he may have been the best hitter in the last portion of month. But was someone better?

Believe it or not, Joe Nathan had a decent month statistically. He converted all of his save opportunities, even if he blew a game in a non-save situation. A couple of relievers turned in a nice month and one of the starters was typically dominate. The choice of best July pitcher is yours.
