In the spirit of the holiday season, the writers at Motor City Bengals came up with our very own Detroit Tigers-themed Christmas list.
Detroit Tigers’ players probably want the same things for Christmas that we all want: health, happiness, time spent with our families, and for the Tigers to not finish last in 2018.
Tigers fans are mentally preparing for the upcoming rebuild here in the Motor City. While it has not been easy to see players like Justin Verlander and Ian Kinsler traded, it is a necessary part of tearing a franchise down.
Still, just because the team is unlikely to compete in 2018 does not mean there is not a reason for optimism and hope heading into the new year. Whether it is seeing your favorite veteran return to form or seeing a new face develop into a star, there is plenty to watch out for next season.
Here at Motor City Bengals, each of the writers has come up with one thing we want from the Detroit Tigers for Christmas this year.
We compiled it into a list (and checked it twice) and posted it here.
First up is Andy Patton’s wish: A return to form for 38-year-old designated hitter Victor Martinez.
