We knew Miguel Cabrera had a lot of power, so what? We knew Justin Verlander had a pretty good fastball, too. So it's nice to get some third-party confirmation for bragging purposes.
Some highlights (and remember: this list is divided by AL and NL):
Miguel Cabrera -- Best hitter, best power
Justin Verlander -- Best fastball, best curveball
Brandon Inge -- No. 3 defensive third baseman
Jim Leyland -- No. 3 best manager
From the ex-Tiger list we can add:
Placido Polanco -- Best hit-and-run artist
How about the could-he-be-a-Tiger list?
Carl Crawford -- Fastest baserunner, No. 2 best baserunner, Most Exciting Player
Adrian Beltre -- Best infield arm, No. 2 defensive third baseman
Cliff Lee (hey, I can dream) -- Best Pitcher
OK, so that's a choice sampling. What do you think of the list? Did the inclusion of Leyland surprise you any? Have at it!
