Always A Tiger: Midseason 2011 Edition

The Tigers and many of the MLB teams have hit their official halfway point in the season and I thought this would be a good time to take a look at how the ex-Tiger players are doing this season. Just because they’re wearing a different shirt now doesn’t mean we should forget about them, right?

Right?

Anyway, here’s a position-by-position look at our former heroes in their newer surroundings, including some guys that have been in the minors all season.
