2014: The 1st Inning (10-8)

While this is partly inspired by the old Sam Hoff season-as-innings feature, I’m not going to go into statistics too much, least of all cumulative team stats. No, I’m going to recap the games, because the games are what happened. (You might be surprised at how clearly you remember some of them.) I am, in fact, going to avoid too much summarizing of the “innings” in general...

Jose Iglesias Said To Be 'Fine' For 2015 Season

Remember Jose Iglesias? You know, the guy we traded away in exchange for now-San Francisco Giant Jake Peavy in a three-way deal? After missing the entire 2014 season with stress fractures in both of his shins, word is that the 24-year old shortstop will be 100% healthy for the 2015 season.

Tigers Rumors: Joe Nathan must improve to remain Detroit's closer

The Detroit Tigers won 90 games this season and advanced to the ALDS before being swept by the Baltimore Orioles. At second in the Major Leagues in runs scored, it appears little must be done in the off season to improve the offense. The pitching staff struggled to 24th in the Major Leagues in ERA.

Detroit Tigers: 3 burning questions this offseason

In order to get back to the World Series next year, the Detroit Tigers have some offseason issues that need to be addressed and some questions that need to be answered. 1. Will Max Scherzer come back? To me this seems like a no-brainer, but anything can happen. Pitcher Max Scherzer was the Tigers best pitcher in 2014 as he led the team with 18 wins, 252 strikeouts, and an ERA of...

Detroit Tigers: need to knows from Dombrowski presser

Each year, Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski holds an annual postseason press conference with the media. This year’s meet-up came sooner than everyone hoped and most had expected.

VMart will give the Tigers the first shot to sign him in free agency

After hitting .335 with 32 home runs and 103 RBIs, 35-year old Victor Martinez had a career-year in 2014 for the Tigers and set himself up for a nice contract this offseason as he hits free agency.
