Game 2015.106: Royals at Tigers

Well today is the first day of the Al Avila era, wasn’t expecting to be saying that. It is also a chance for Justin Verlander to try for a third straight dominant outing. If he does it will be a pretty exciting sign that we have at least one dependable starter in the rotation. I wasn’t expecting that one guy to be ol’ JV. The Tigers have also announced that LHP Matt Boyd has...

Mike Hessman Sets Minor League Home Run Record

There are certain moments in baseball history that remain etched in our minds. We can quickly recall where we were when it occurred and its historical significance. Events such as Mark McGwire’s 62nd home run, Carlton Fisk’s World Series walk-off and Derek Jeter’s 3000th career hit quickly spring to mind and remind us of the lasting bond between hallowed records and their place...

J.D. Martinez when from getting cut from the worst team in baseball to hitting in the middle of the order for the Detroit Tigers in the matter of two months.

With that being said, it is about...

And how the Expos were running for a National League pennant and how the Blue Jays are gunning for an American League pennant. And how there was excitement in 1989 in Montreal, how there is excitement in 2015 in...

Report: Detroit Tigers, Yoenis Cespedes expected to pursue reunion in offseason

The Detroit Tigers’ roster didn’t click. For various reasons, the club failed to produce consistent wins.

Soria Moves from Motown to Pittsburgh

Soria did a decent job in Motown, but with his team’s playoff chances waning, the free-agent-to-be was destined to […]

Yes, I know they are just the Rays now. But I reject the name change. All the Tiger brass are in Tampa to huddle together and figure out what to do.
