By:  Kurt Snyder & Holly Horning

Today’s topic is one we all needed. It has gotten way too serious around here, so we have to lighten it up a bit. Let’s take a departure from the state of the team and have a little fun.

As is the norm, Kurt and Holly have not shared their responses to the following topic; the best way for our readers to get the best bang for their buck. So here we go.

MLB has announced that at a future game this season, players will have the opportunity to put their nicknames on the backs of their jerseys. If Kurt and Holly had their say, what would the nicknames be for 20 Tigers, including 1 Totally Tiger? Let’s find out…
