Dream Team!

74-88.

As if we have to remind you, that about sums up the 2008 Detroit Tigers. A team that was constructed to maul American League pitching instead became the prey and became what might be the most disappointing Tigers team in history.

How did it happen? In the interest of time and holiday spirit, we’ll wrap it up in three points:

  1. Poor pitching
  2. Inconsistent hitting
  3. Porous defense

Sure. We could go deeper into each of those — in fact, we did in the previous nine entries of this list — but why bother? We all sat through it.

Six weeks until Spring Training. Moving on!
