Detroit Tigers

Even though pitcher wins are mostly meaningless, having an average of 15 each across your top-4 starters helped the Tigers in their 2015 MLB season. Alfredo Simon, Anibal Sanchez and Justin Verlander all had ERA’s under 3, with David Price not too far behind at 3.14 ERA. Their team ERA of 2.93 across all pitchers (including the bullpen) is an MLB-best, aided by sub-2 bullpen ERA’s from Joba Chamberlain, Joakim Soria and Joe Nathan. You know it’s opposite day when there’s a lot to be said about the Tigers bullpen. Must have been the change from Coke to healthier alternatives.

Miguel Cabrera was tired of letting deserving players finally win long-overdue MVP awards, so Miggy made baseballs die hard. With a vengeance. So does his .349/.413/.633/1.047 slash line attest, complete with only 36 more strikeouts than walks, 45 home runs and 105 RBI. It more than made up for cruel, season-ending injuries for Victor Martinez and Jose Iglesias, as players like Rajai Davis and Anthony Gose had to fill in with baserunning runs options. J.D. Martinez also roped 21 over the fence, so that’s pretty nice of him.
