Detroit Tigers: Staff preseason predictions
The staff at Motor City Bengals makes their preseason predictions regarding the Detroit Tigers in 2018.
The Detroit Tigers are no longer perennial contenders for the AL pennant. After shipping away most of their premier talent at the trade deadline, the Tigers have geared up for a potentially lengthy rebuild.
With rebuilds comes a lot of uncertainty. The 2018 team has a lot of older, veteran talent still remaining. However, the majority of their future is still in the minor leagues, and the rest of the roster is filled with cheap veterans whose job it is to bridge the gap until the team can be competitive again.
