Motor City Uncut 60: Joe Nathan probably saved the Tigers from themselves (AUDIO)

JOE NATHAN’S BIGGEST SAVE OF THE YEAR? Joe Nathan’s biggest save of his Tigers career very well could have come with his season ending UCL injury. Ironically the veteran closer may have saved the Tigers from themselves in their consistent pursuit of putting him in during the 9th instead Joakim Soria who probably should of had the job from the very beginning. RED WINGS PLAYOFF...

Detroit Tigers: What Nathan injury means

The Detroit Tigers have taken a blow to an already questionable bullpen that needs every healthy arm possible. Unfortunately, closer Joe Nathan is the blow the bullpen took as he will not be one of those arms this season. Nathan, 40, tore both the ulnar collateral ligament and flexor pronator in his right elbow in his rehab start for the Toledo Mud Hens and is now officially out...

Justin Verlander, Kate Upton attend Canucks playoff game (Video)

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and girlfriend Kate Upton are apparently hockey fans, as they attended Thursday night's Vancouver Canucks playoff Game 5 against Calgary. Verlander is still recovering from a triceps strain, and it looks like he's used the time out of the spotlight to grow a massive beard. Verlander may as well call himself Grizzly Adams now.

Report: David Price prefers to sign with NL team

One of the top free agent pitchers this upcoming offseason is David Price. He has been a steady and reliable pitcher his entire career which has always been in the American League. Even though he has pitched very well in the AL, he could look to move to the other side of MLB. Citing a source close to the pitcher, George A. King III of the New York Post reports that since Price “loves”...

Price’s Owners Drop F-Bombs Like Bryan

Apparently, it was never the elevation in Coors. It was because it was cold in Colorado. Or at least that's what the Yanks/Tigers game looked like last night while it was played in Arctic temps (granted, a hot day in the Arctic) and snow. Other teams may get some ideas that it's all about the cold. "Let's get Howard, Utley, Galvis and Asche on that side of the air conditioner...

How the Tigers Won the Doug Fister Trade

Detroit Tigers’ general manager Dave Dombrowski is no stranger to big trades, and he usually comes out on the winning end. Since taking over the Tigers in 2002, Dombrowski has turned a perennial cellar team into an AL powerhouse. During his time, the Tigers have won four division titles and two pennants. Despite his success with the club, Dombrowski was under fire last off-season...

Do the Detroit Tigers have a closer dilemma?

With Joakim Soria being four for four on save opportunities, it looks like there will be a closer competition in Detroit. Popular vote would say keep Joakim Soria there because he has had two easy saves against Pittsburgh this past week, compared to Nathan who makes the game more interesting when he comes in. I also say keep in Soria because he has closer experience too (most saves...

Reports of the Tigers’ demise were greatly exaggerated

Maybe it was their failure in the postseason against Baltimore last October (they lost seven of their last nine play off games). Maybe it was worries about their injuries and old age. Maybe it was boredom, refusing to pick the same team as always to win it all, but for some reason the sports writers of American (including those for this site) had essentially pronounced the Detroit...

Detroit Tigers off to historically torrid start

For Detroit Tigers fans of a certain age, a fast start to the regular season is nothing new.  In 1984 the Motor City Kitties rocketed out to a 35-5 record through the first 40 games, a feat which has never been duplicated. It is unlikely a team is soon going to duplicate that feat, but this year’s Tigers are certainly looking capable of matching that season’s total of 104 wins...
