For the first time since 2010, no Detroit Tiger player took home a postseason award last season. Most of the staff is predicting this to continue for a second straight season although there is some Tiger love for David Price in a contract year and Miguel Cabrera in a (hopefully) healthy season.

Chris Sale and Felix Hernandez receive lots of love in the AL Cy Young race while Clayton Kershaw is on many of our ballots over in the NL. Two former Tigers and current Nationals are on the list too. That would be the ultimate Tiger fan troll job if one of those guys won.

Bad news for Tigers’ fans as MCB sees Jose Abreu as a strong MVP candidate. Last year’s MVP Mike Trout garners support as well as a couple others.

MCB loves Andrew McCutchen as five of eight staffers see him taking home the NL MVP.

So there you have it, the season in a nutshell predicted by Motor City Bengals. We would love to hear your opinions as well. Sound off in the comment field, tweet us @MCB_Tigers or comment on Facebook at
