    What if you found out he was 37? I think if that massive contract wasn't hanging over him people would feel differently but he signed it so it's his burden to carry.

    As a Tigers fan, it was difficult to watch Miggy this year. It was recently reported he has two herniated discs in his back. I'd like to attribute his poor season to his back but that still doesn't bode well for future years give his age and recent injury history.

    Joey Bats- hard to watch this year. Just plain terrible offensively and defensively. Heck, light hitting backup IF Ryan Goins almost had the same OPS as Bautista.

    I'm hoping he has enough left in him to bash 38 more home runs & collect 364 hits before his career ends so he can become one of those very rare 3k hits/500 HR legends. He is signed thru 2023 so assuming he doesn't have a career ending injury he should certainly be able to. If how he performed this season becomes the norm, he would only need 3 more seasons to accomplish this goal. I mean, if his career ended right now he'd still make it to the HOF so it's not like he needs to reach those milestones to make it.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    So, who were the most disappointing players this year?

    As Brewer fan Braun was terrible this year. Numbers say he also had some horrible luck and injuries didnít help. Also, considering heís a douche nozzle as a person makes it feel like he sucks even more than he actually might not. But anyhow, any help from him down the stretch would have been nice.

    Couple other observations: Thames definitely didnít live up to early hype but I donít think thereís reason not to at least hope he can build upon his first year back in MLB and be a little better next year.

    Ichiro is certainly a shadow of his former self (the most electric player Iíve ever seen) but at this point in his career he was the best pinch hitter in the league (depending on your view)

    As for a letdown or heartbreak, Villar looked like u was going to get MVP votes given an entire season and decent playing time. Nope...

    If Thames hits .250 and has 30 homers spread fairly even over 2018 I'd say it's a win. I think he seems disappointing because he was so April/may heavy. He can make a few adjustments and be a relative bargain for his salary

    I know injuries, especially to pitchers had something to do with it, but man Seattle surprised me. I had them as dark horse WS candidates. And most of their hitters had pretty decent numbers.

    And Houston winning so much with zilch from Beltran and McCann was impressive...
