We've got Pedro and Ted. Who you got? Detroit Tigers Nominations
Posted 15 November 2012 - 09:48 AM
Now that the season is over, let's see who folks think are the greatest hitters and pitchers in each franchise's history.
Today we nominate Detroit Tigers. Hall of Famers include Ty Cobb, Mickey Cochrane, Sam Crawford, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, Harry Heilmann, Hughie Jennings, Al Kaline, George Kell, Heinie Manush, and Hal Newhouser.
Retired numbers include Willie Horton (not that one, Dukakis), Cobb, Greenberg, Gehringer, Newhouser, Heilmann, Kaline, Manush, Jennings, Crawford, Cochrane, and Kell.
Put your nominations in this thread. For all of these threads, you can nominate up to 3 Hitters and up to 3 Pitchers.
As always nominations must be in boldface in order to guarantee they get counted.
We'll leave nominations open for a day or two, see how it's going, and then set up a poll and go on to the next team.
Have at it!
EDIT: WE ARE NOT CONSIDERING FIELDING WHEN DETERMINING WHO THE BEST "HITTER" IS.

Pitchers: Hal Newhouser, Jack Morris, Mickey Lolich
Tough group of nominees here. A fairly clear winner for hitter, but still a few guys that won't get nominated that are better than some teams' best.

Pitchers: Denny McLain, Mark Fidrych

Yeah, I don't necessarily think he's their best hitter of all time but he's been really, really good with DET and I was trying to get more names to fill up the poll at the time.

Cobb and Kaline. Potentially Cabrera
Verlander and Newhouser.
And as a Tiger fanboy--
Fidrych and Dave Rozema
