I dunno if anyone done this before, but i figured i would try to make a game of this.
Being a huge tigers fane and wings fan,, ive been thinking lately of what tigers player remind me of wings players. And i thought it would be fun to see how other people campared tigers players to wings players. I consider their style of play and place on the team and i have drawn the following tyep of comparisions.

Pudge - backbone of team, brings expereince and skill to team, willing to teach youngsters - Tigers version of Lidstrom
Guillen - Getting slower, but still can hit the ball and play the field like a rookie - Tigers version of Chelios
Inge - Steller on defense, can offer a bit of offense when needed, fast - Tigers version of Draper
Sheffield - Brought in as missing link of tigers - Tigers version of Bertuzzi
Polanco - Clutch hitter, steller defense, gives it his all SHOWS UP IN PLAYOFFS - Tigers version of Zetterberg

Those are the ones that i came up with. What do you guys think?

Ill give you that, he didnt show up in the WS but then again noone else in a tigers jersey did either. He was named MVP of the ALCS and without him they would ahve never made it to the Series, so it could go either way.

Good one. I think thats a pretty good comparison. Some of the people may fight you on this saying that Kronwall is the upcoming star with lots of potential, but he hasnt really shown a whole lot yet, where as ledba was kind of a sleeper and has impressed the hell out of me with his speed and ability.

Two really goods ones, i was trying to think of someone like dats, but couldnt, bonderman must of slipped my mind because hes perfcet, you could also say verlander is the same thing, both pretty good for dats. I like robertson being the version of the Mule. Kind of fits nicely.

It was sent to the Other Sports forum and merged with a thread on the very same topic. Here's the thread in question.

Haha a ver good comparison. Both of them get crap. Jones for not getting strikeouts (all though one of the best ground ball pitchers out there) and ozzie for giving up soft goals (but coming through many times in the clutch situations. i like it.

there was a reply earlier comparing santiago to cleary, but i think the more that i think about it that Infante is a good comparison for cleary. Good utility player, can play whereever you need him, and a good all around athlete. Great shape, and great heart.
