Three ways this offseason could be one to forget for Detroit Tigers fans
The Detroit Tigers 2022 season was scarier than any haunted house one might shuffle through this fall, but it is possible that trend could continue and the team’s misfortunes can leak into the offseason.
As we have thoroughly detailed at the site, the Detroit Tigers recently hired Scott Harris as their President of Baseball Operations. Upon completion of the World Series, Harris’ first offseason will begin. The Tigers are expected to be very active this offseason and will need to be to turn the tides on a disappointing 2022 which featured a combination of injuries, regression, and disappointments.
Perhaps the biggest question is what that activity looks like and how high the Detroit Tigers have their sights set on improving the roster–a roster that was once thought to be well-positioned for balanced offensive output and consistent pitching. Could Scott Harris examine this year’s League Championship Series’ as grounds to aim higher and bring a star to the Motor City (see Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, Bryce Harper, Gerrit Cole, etc), or could he attempt to bring his same Giants magic here by stringing together a cast of strong players who don’t have that same newspaper-selling name?
Nevertheless, with our focus on all things scary, the Tigers’ offseason could go south rather quickly with just a few negative developments.
