As for the Lakers, that's not exactly true. Yes, there were plenty of pundits all over them, but just as many were doubting based on the issues I've mentioned. The Tigers are consensus. Be honest, can you look at that rotation and not feel it's the best in baseball? Can you look at that lineup and not feel it's at least top three in baseball?
Ask the Yankees and Nationals how much "Division Champion" and home field in the playoffs means. (Hint: Nothing)
And that is absolutely not true about the Lakers. I can't definitively say that everyone was high on them coming into this season but to say it was split 50/50 is just bull****. The Tigers, I am sure, are no more consensus than LAL was.
