Joe Nathan Weighs In On Experts With Low Expectations For The 2015 Tigers [VIDEO]

By: Jeff Riger

When Tigers reliever Joe Nathan makes his first appearance this season, one has to wonder what type of reaction he might get. Nathan has been under fire since last season when he had his worst year of his career. During spring training, Nathan also made some negative comments about fans, which is never a good idea for an athlete to do.

Monday in the Detroit locker room before the first game of the season, Nathan wasn't talking about himself -- instead it was all about the team's expectations. Many of the so-called experts are picking against the Tigers to win the division, and some think the team will even have a losing season.

"Has anyone ever been right?" Nathan wondered. "You go back and look over time, the so-called experts that pick, when have they been right and what's their percentage?"

Check out the video for Nathan's entire thoughts about the experts who are picking against the Tigers.
