It might not always feel like it, but Tigers fans should feel fortunate.

Sure, the fact the Tigers coronation as Central Division champions even before the season started has seen more jesters inhabit the court than knights.

Fans, however, have had an opportunity to watch one of the best hitters in franchise history — Miguel Cabrera — and one of the best pitchers in franchise history — Justin Verlander.
