Name the 10 guys that drew more walks as a Tiger than everyone else.

Bases on balls are not the most glamorous way to get on base. You don't even get to hit the ball. Sure, it's better than striking out, flying out, grounding out, popping out, interfering with the catcher... you get the point. But the reality is that few people are fawned over due to their propensity for drawing a walk. Sure, the walk helped spawn the Moneyball era and is probably the reason Billy Beane still has a job, but... it's still just a walk.

As you can tell, I'm not really coming up with much to say about this topic. I mean, what is there to write about a bunch of guys who did a really good job of getting on base because the pitcher failed to throw enough strikes? It seems really boring. But please play the quiz anyway. And feel free to leave a comment letting everyone know how you did (I got 8 out of 10).
