When you’re the Rookie of the Year, you get a post devoted to yourself on the blog. Plus, we like Michael Fulmer. We lucked into him on a flyer in one of our fantasy keeper leagues, and he figures to stay put for a long time on our squad.

Fulmer is the fifth Tiger all-time to win the AL Rookie of the Year Award.
