THE REVIEW: Rebuilding a roster

It was a dream lineup. Some of the league’s hottest hitters all together under the same roof, sporting the storied English D. What was predicted to be a dominating season would ultimately take an unfortunate turn for the Detroit Tigers and thanks to a midseason unraveling, 1984 would continue to hold its place in the franchise’s history.
