Newer Detroit Tigers fans might just know C-Mo as the guy with the colorful suits sitting at the Fox Sports Detroit desk during games. But, there was a time when Monroe was a real force in Comerica Park. He played in the Motor City for six years between 2002 and 2007. During this time (even with 2002 included), he batted .259 and hit 101 home runs. In 2005, he led the AL in sacrifice flies knocking in 12 runners and 89 RBIs. He never made it to an All-Star game, but he was and continues to be a favorite Tiger who was a beast at the plate.
