It was disappointing, but ez to see coming.
We had struggled Vs leftys and they lined up Zito and Bumgardner against us. In their own park. Now in and of itself, with Verlander starting, shouldn't have been a big deal. But our poor showing against southpaws it was like SF had Steve Carlton and Sandy Koufax lined up to face us.
Didn't expect much and that's what I got. We were lackluster (I'm sure they were trying, "that's just baseball") until game four. When we woke up and decided to play some.

<<<Peralta and Cabrera, who are not overweight.>>>
Looked like they were both suffering from Dunlop's Disease by the end of last season.

Cabrera in World Series
Miggy gained weight as the season progressed. But how did the weight gain fail him? His range never changed from April to October. Obviously it never affected his bat, unless the thread-starter here expected a .400 AVG season.
Jhonny looked like he lost a couple of pounds from August/September going into the postseason. Still a bit of a spare tire, but not as bad.

There's more to baseball than performance at the plate, contrary to modern-day opinion. A few less pounds would help Miggy move more quickly on defense. Ya know that "range" thing we're always blaming Jhonny for?
Fortunately Miggy, Jhonny, and Alex have been working out together in Florida this winter.
<<mvpdad may be a troll. >>
He's not a troll.
I think the definition of "troll" needs to be addressed.
To me, a troll is a fan from another franchise, whose only purpose in posting here is to "rub it in" (as we saw after the WS), or insult the club and/or fan base.
I just don't see common fan frustration with the teams' play being troll behavior. If it is, then the only person who posts here that isn't a troll is Meat.
And I just can't accept that, because, in a way, he's troll-like with any fan that gets frustrated with the team performance at various points throughout the season. But I don't consider him a troll, either.
When you discussed exile and when you discussed Richard Simmons, I had reservations you were a true Tigers fan.
I posted evidence Simmons was not needed for Peralta and Cabrera.He may not be the best advice for Prince Fielder. We simply don't know the opposite-effect on Prince.
Your future posts will outline your Tigers interest. I look forward to reading your comments.
