This poll was retired by us after about an eight-week run...
The Tigers will be watching the playoffs on TV this year. What do they need to do to improve next year?
- 8% Better Hitting
- 17% Get rid of several dead-weight contracts
- 50% Better Pitching
- 25% Retool with younger players
Comment - Our poll respondents have a good handle on the Tigers needs. While the hitting will hopefully improve, most agreed it was not the Tigers greatest need. Many recognized the need to free themselves of some ugly long-term contracts that have been awarded to unproductive players, but most probably realize this is wishful thinking, and will be hard to do. Appropriately, Pitching was seen as the area where the Tigers most need to improve, and a surprising number recognized that several Tigers are getting long in the tooth, and that an influx of young talent is necessary.
