J.D. Martinez and Blaine Hardy: the Tigers' version of found money

DETROIT -- Imagine walking down the street and finding a $20 bill. That kind of thing can make your day. Now imagine how the Detroit Tigers feel as they've found two players that could end up making the difference in their season. One of them, J.D.
