Game 2012.120: Orioles at Tigers

64-55, 2nd place, 1.5 games behind CWS, tied for WC lead. Yes, Prince Fielder had 2 HR and 4 RBIs last night, but let’s not overlook what Miguel Cabrera dud. He hit a jack in the 1st to put the Tigers up 1-0, and then got on base twice in front of Fielder HRs. And to think, he’s only 29. And the more Fielder hits, the better pitches Cabrera will see. Watch out. For all of the...

Leyland: Playing third pumps Miggy up

Miguel Cabrera this season has been more openly demonstrative than ever before. He will pound the water jug like a bongo when frustrated and make pointed comments to teammates when the need arises. Cabrera also is much looser, happier and has developed a whole set of handshakes and interactive hand jive with teammates. Neither Cabrera nor first baseman Prince Fielder have a name...

Tigers Monday recap: Pulling their weight

DETROIT -- For a lot of fans, the problem with the Detroit Tigers offense seems obvious they don't take advantages of the runners they put on base.

Tigers' Fister has 'groin issue'

DETROIT -- Just when the Tigers thought their season-long injury woes were coming to an end, another one has cropped up. Manager Jim Leyland revealed before Tuesday's game that Doug Fister is dealing with a "groin issue." "He underwent an MRI yesterday at the DMC and it showed that he's got an adductor strain, just what we had diagnosed on Sunday," athletic...

Game 2012.121: Orioles at Tigers

64-56, 2nd place, 1.5 games behind CWS, 1 game behind WC. Well, that stunk. The Tigers were completely shut down by the worst starting pitcher (statistically) that they’ve seen all season. Now, Britton was pretty good as a rookie last year, and is well thought of around Baltimore (he’s only 24), but they simply let him off the hook early with bad swings in crucial situations...

7 reasons why the Detroit Tigers win it all in 2012

At 64-57, the Detroit Tigers continue to stumble their way through the 2012 season with only one stretch of dominant baseball on their resume. What’s worse is that the Tigers failed to take advantage of the Royals sweeping the division leading White Sox this past weekend. As a result, the Tigers remain 1.5 games out of first place in the modest AL Central. With 41 games left on...

McClendon Deserves More Credit for Jackson’s Revival

January is a safe time to talk about baseball. There are no games on the schedule, no performances to track. The dead of winter makes a very comfortable backdrop against which to make declarations, bold predictions and lofty promises. Few are the wintertime bon mots that get remembered much past spring training. Even fewer are those that actually come true. The Tigers winter...

Detroit Tigers Week In Review

41 That is the number to keep in mind. There are exactly 41 games left in the 2012 MLB regular season for the Detroit Tigers. 41 games to gain 1.5 games against the Chicago White Sox, who the Tigers will play 7 times in these 41 games, or gain 2 games over the recently departed Baltimore Orioles, Tampa Bay Rays, andOaklandA’s. Sure they don’t need to gain exactly two games over...

Kate Upton Seems To Still Be Dating Justin Verlander

Kate Upton has been relatively quiet since it was learned that she and Justin Verlander were dating. It was July 10 when BC learned that Upton was officially partying with Verlander in Detroit. Then there was the July 18 news that Upton was joining a suburban Detroit gym. That’s where the trail went cold. For the most part, she stopped using Twitter. JV & Upton weren’t spotted...

Orioles tame Tigers, take two of three in Detroit

The Detroit Tigers had won 16 of their last 19 contests at Comerica Park going into the start of the three-game weekend series with the Orioles this past weekend. After a 5-3 win on Friday night, Jim Leyland’s team had run that streak to 17-of-20, and had pulled even with the Birds in the American League Wild Card standings. For the O’s, things were looking a bit grim – after...

More missed opportunities as the Tigers fall to Baltimore 3-2

Rick Porcello was good enough to earn at least a no decision Saturday night, unfortunately though his offense didn’t take advantage of the opportunities presented to them. The Tigers left a total of six runners on base and hit into three double-plays as they fell to the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 from Comerica Park. Porcello, who’s been largely inconsistent this season went six strong...
