Last year I explored and readers voted on who should be in the Detroit Tigers Hall of Fame from past and present. This year, I’d like to take a look and give my thoughts on the best Tiger at each position. The main condition I have for consideration will be a minimum of 5-years in the old English D uniform at that position for a majority of the season. There are will be some easy battles for certain positions, while others will be incredibly difficult.
Today we’ll start out with Detroit Tigers catchers. There are only six Tigers who even qualify for the minimum seasons needed and are Bill Freehan, Lance Parrish, Oscar Stanage, Ivan Rodriguez, Johnny Bassler, and crowd favorite, Alex Avila.
WHEN IT COMES TO JOSE BAUTISTA AND EDWIN ENCARNACION, THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS’ FRONT OFFICE HAS PROVEN TO BE BETTER JUDGES OF OFFSEASON MARKET
It’s winter, alright. Spring seems so far away as we hunker down for some cold, snow and ice. What seems even further away was last spring when the Toronto Blue Jays were in a position to negotiate contract extensions for their Dynamic Duo, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. At the time, the talk of contracts overshadowed Spring Training, ending in nothing but a lot of hot air. No deals were struck and we entered the 2016 season trying not to accept that it could be the last for these two in Toronto.

I visited the Ebbets Field Apartments in Flatbush Brooklyn. This was once the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Not a lot of clues that baseball was ever played here.
