Delights and Disappointments, Volume Whatever

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

It has been my wont in past years to write a little post like this at the All Star Break (though I must have been drunk and forgot last year) Which Tiger player has been the greatest surprise to you so far this season, either positively or negatively? Who has been the delightful surprise -- that guy you really didn't expect anything from at the beginning of the season but who has performed above your expectations? Conversely, who has been that player you had high hopes for at the beginning of the season. only to see them dashed?

It doesn't count if they guy is performing as expected -- that's no fun. Rather think about your expectations at the beginning of the season and go from there.

I'll start:

Delight: J.D. Martinez. I had no clue about what we were getting in Julio Daniel. His numbers with Houston weren't all that special. I guess he epitomizes what a change of scenery can do

Disappointment: Justin Verlander. Maybe the Detroit organization was just blowing smoke up our skirts this spring and nobody was talking about the toll his surgery took. Or maybe I was just incredibly naive, but I didn't think he would fall of the mark this much. Justin, you disappoint.

Your turn!
