My GF Wishes I Was Hank

Just thought of a fun game

Rate this topic

36 posts in this topic

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?

Um, didn't Polanco go oh-fer in the World Series?

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.

Curtis Granderson, upcoming young star with lots of potential = Lebda

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.

Magglio: maybe a shade past his prime but can put up good numbers and performs in the post-season= Tigers version of Lang

Bonderman: All Star youngster who will ba a force for years to come= Tigers version of Pavel

Robertson: Not the most skilled, but knows what to do to get the job done, up-and-coming youngster who is just coming into his own= Tigers version of Franzen

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.

HAHAHA i love the leyland hasek one, thats great. The only one i dont really like is santiago and cleary. Santiago bugs me, whenever he gets to plate all he does is try and bunt. cant really hit.

Zetterberg brought his game too.

But i posted a thread on this but it got relocated and i dont know where, but does anyone know any good tiger forums? Something kind of like this letsgowings.com forums but for the tigers? Seasons right around the corner and just looking for somewhere to post.

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.

Have a look at tigerscentral.com. It reminds me a lot of LGW.

Curtis Granderson, upcoming young star with lots of potential = Lebda

Lebda?? Lebda's playing right about at his potential right now. Granderson's more like Hudler. Could be a star but needs to work on a big part of his game. Hudler needs to play better defense, Granderson needs to not strike out so much.

Curtis Granderson - Filppula

Granderson has a lot of potential, and has shown it at times last season, just as Filppula has shown his potential at times this season. I'd compare those two.

Monroe is 30.

You know what they say though... 60 is the new 40! That could very well apply here! :lol:
