I love PUDGE.. he's amazing..
but i would have to say my tiger would be Curtis GRANDERSON..
he is so under-rated, and he's amazing.
He has such a great attitude, and sense of pride, and i love love love what he does on and off the field..
it dosen't help that he's pretty darn attractive either! ;)

Aurelio Rodriguez, now that's old school Tigers there. He was one of the first guys i can remember from my childhood & loved the way he would take his time & then throw a missle to first base. As far as older tigers, Jack Morris is my favorite. Fierce competitor that was always fun to watch with that split finger fastball darting all over the place.

Honestly I have to admit that it is Aurelio Rodriguez. He signed my bat at my very first game. I think it was 1974 against the California Angels. Of todays players it's gotta be Pudge. I love his attitude.

That makes three of us who went to the Verlander no- hitter. I took my 5 year old daughter to the game. She really got into the excitement of the end of the game, even though she really didn't get the importance of a no-hitter.

My favorite Tigers are Verlander & Granderson. I just like how both of these guys handle themselves. I think they make great role models for kids with they level headed & hard work approach to the game. Plus they are fun to watch & have a ton of talent.

Wow, I couldn't be more jealous. I could only watch the excitement of the no hitter, but to feel it would have been incredible. No wonder it's america's favorite passtime.

Is Inge leaving? I thought he was just going to have to share 3rd with Renteria.

I think Brandon missed his calling, and should have been a pitcher since birth. Nobody else can throw so accurately. (Polanco maybe.)

WHAT A YEAR!!!

• Magglio Ordonez won the A.L. Batting Title with a .363 average.
• Justin Verlander pitched a no-hitter.
• Curtis Granderson became the third player in MLB history to hit 20 homers, 20 triples, 20 doubles, and steal 20 bases in a season.
• Magglio and Placido both won Silver Slugger awards.
• Placido and Pudge both won Gold Glove awards. Pudge's 13 Gold Glvoes are the most ever by a catcher.
• Placido won the This Year in Baseball Defensive Player of the Year award with an error-free, 1.000 fielding percentage.
• Curtis Granderson won the This Year in Baseball Play of the Year award for his spectacular robbery of Wily Mo Pena's almost-home run shot in July.

I am really excited about the trade. ESPN keeps saying we have the best line-up in the MLB! I went to order TigerFest tickets this morning and they were all sold out:-( I think the trade really got people excited. Only 116 days until opening day!

OH I know what you mean. I'd hate to see 3rd base without Inge out there, and he does do well in every position they have put him in temporarily during the year.. except for that one spot - the batters' cage. It's really holding him back, in my opinion.

Any news on the Shef? I hope he retires this month.

What are people's thoughts on the trade?

Personally, I think it could be good though I don't like giving up prospects. It is always a guessing game when it comes to injuries. Still, we have a formadible lineup now and can you imagine seeing Verlander, Bonderman and Willis in a series.

I am a little upset because Brandon Inge is my favorite Tiger and I really want to keep seeing him play.

News Flash:
The Detroit Tigers made the first big splash at the Winter Meetings in Nashville, acquiring highly coveted third baseman Miguel Cabrera and left-hander Dontrelle Willis from the Florida Marlins in exchange for left-hander Andrew Miller, center fielder Cameron Maybin and four additional players.

Cabrera, 24, hit .320 with 34 home runs and 119 RBIs in 2007, while Willis, 25, went 10-15 with a 5.17 ERA in 2007, but topped 200 innings for the third consecutive season. He has a career 68-54 record with a 3.78 ERA in five Major League seasons. Cabrera has topped 25 HRs and 110 RBIs in all four of his full Major League seasons.

I'm kinda bummed to see that Leland is sticking around until 09. He makes some poor choices that cost us games in my opinion. Like when he gets a pitcher having a bad night. Instead of pulling them after 2 innings and 4 walks, he lets them continue on until the game is pretty much shot.

Or when it's really time to bunt, here comes sheffield. Or when Granderson has the night off and its tied in the 9th, poof - there's Granderson unstead of Infante whos all warmed up. I don't assume that I could do the job, but he frustrates me.

It's so hard to pick just one. Maggs is having a steller year, Sheffield has finally come around and made an impact on our team, and Granderson is so quick, he's got to break the record for most triples in a season.
I'd have to say my Tiger is Brandon Inge. He struggled a bit at the beginning of the year, but he's just been a team player, a quiet one too, not much recognition. He's got a great arm at 3B, has done great since the transition from catching, and has weathered the storm when the team wasn't good.
