FanPost Friday: Build the perfect Tigers roster

With a century of options to choose from, create a dream team

Lou Whitaker

The recent MLB draft has a lot of people reflecting on the great draft selections of the past, and the guys who went on to become mega superstars of their own right. It leads to reminiscing about the past, which is a great time to think about the all-time Detroit Tigers greats.

This week for our FanPost Friday prompt, the rules are simple, but the choices won’t be. We want you to build your perfect Tigers team, using any player who was with the Tigers for a full season. That’s the sole caveat: no partial season rentals. If you want to get really specific, you can select the best year for that particular player (ie: you might want 2012 Verlander instead of 2016 Verlander in your lineup).

Copy and paste the following list into a “New FanPost” on the FanPosts page, and create your ultimate Tigers dream team!

Yes, you read that right, you can only pick one each for starting pitcher, reliever, and closer. Good luck narrowing that one down.
