Other things Jon Heyman heard about the Tigers

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Jon Heyman heard Miguel Cabrera is the Tigers' best infielder. We investigated what else he may have been told.

Saturday a certain sports writer who I shall only refer to here as "Jon Heyman" (not necessarily his real name, even though it is) made some public predictions about the 2014 season. Sources say he also made several private predictions, but no one knows what they were.

I'm not going to suggest that Heyman is crazy, per se, but he's definitely crazy. For instance, he says the Tigers have had a "disastrous spring" that has left them with Miguel Cabrera as "their best defensive infielder following the loss of wizard shortstop Jose Iglesias, and that "their bullpen could miss Bruce Rondon."

It's obvious what has happened here. Heyman got a hold of the Secret List of Most Important Secret Tigers Secrets, which were supposed to be safely under lock and key in the vaults at BYB headquarters. But now the word is out, so we might as well let everyone in on what it is that Heyman learned.
