This list of teams is a mixed bag. Some had success the year after a disappointing season while others signaled the beginning of a stretch with a lack of relevance for a Detroit Tigers team.
We won’t begin to hazard a guess on what might happen with the 2016 Tigers until we see the moves that Al Avila makes in his first offseason at the helm.
One thing is for sure, it will not be as easy as we all thought to reboot this team. Then again, it may not be as tough as we are all fearing as the season reaches its conclusion.
