Rosterbating with Prince

I apologize in advance for Rosterbating, but I have to. It’s a reflex that I can’t control right now. So actually, I don’t apologize. Onward!

Traditionally defensive players are valued on Jim Leyland’s clubs, so he’s going to need to go from three packs a day, to five. The Tigers weren’t very good in that area last year (an understatement) and made it to game 6 of the ALCS. They’ll probably be worse this year.

Though now they’ll have a full season with Prince Fielder and without Brad Penny they should score a ton more and.

A potential roster with 5 righties and 4 lefties.
