Found June 05, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
PLAYERS: Prince Fielder
TEAMS: Detroit Tigers
With splices of Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder brandishing his bat in the Comerica Park dugout along with shots of the City ofDetroit, Tiger Stadium, World Series banners and highlights of Fielder hitting home runs and circling the bases, this makes for a pretty fabulous commercial for Tigers fans. The best part is the flashback to the 2012 World Series with Fielder striking out against the Giants (stick with me, here).  It’s followed up by Fielder saying that he plays for “unfinished business.” Let’s do this.

Detroit Tigers: all arms in early MLB draft rounds

So when do you know that the Detroit Tigers are concerned about their top-end organizational pitching depth? When they select 3 straight collegiate pitchers in the opening rounds of the MLB Draft. The mix consisted of two starters and one reliever. With the 20th pick in the 1st round, the Tigers took power right-hander Jonathon Crawford out of the University of Florida. He checks...

Taking it to the Max

  For those of you who think they know Detroit Tigers ace Max Scherzer, think again!   As many of you may know already, Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer has started his 2013 season as a legitimate CY Young candidate. Scherzer has posted a perfect 8-0 record through 12 starts with 100 strikeouts. His 8 wins are tied for the most in the American League, while his 100...

Scherzer extends his undefeated streak to 8-0

DETROIT -- How tough is Detroit's rotation right now? There's a pretty good chance that the Tigers will have multiple starting pitchers in the All-Star Game, and none of them are going to be Justin Verlander. It isn't that Verlander's been having a bad season -- even with a couple tough starts lately, he's 7-4 with a 3.70 ERA -- but he's facing some pretty...

Tigers 10, Rays 1

Prince Fielder homered and drove in four runs, and the Detroit Tigers handed Matt Moore his first loss of the year with a 10-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. Fielder also hit a two-run single that capped a four-run second inning for the Tigers. Moore (8-1) got only six outs while allowing six runs, seven hits and six walks. He was pitching on three days' rest...

Justin Verlander’s mom hung up on Dave Dombrowski day he was drafted

Justin Verlander was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2004 MLB Draft by the Detroit Tigers and developed into a Cy Young Award winner and MVP. Verlander knew that he was going to be selected highly in the draft, but not everybody in his household was prepared for the phone calls he would receive. [...]

Leyland: Rick Porcello is a starting pitcher

With Jose Valverde’s struggles at the back end of the Tigers’ bullpen, it’s natural for fans to search for other options.  There will not be any proven closers available via trade until closer to the trade deadline at the end of July unless someone wants to overpay, teams likely have to look within for now. The Tigers have six starting pitchers on their current roster with...

When Albert Pujols was better than Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera is the best hitter in baseball. Pretty much everyone agrees with that assessment. Oh, you might get a few Votto votes, but Cabrera has pretty much dominated the offensive world for the past three seasons. It was not long ago when that title belonged to Albert Pujols. The run Pujols put together in his first ten seasons rivaled any player that has ever played the...

Indians visit Tigers looking to end skid

Justin Verlander and Ubaldo Jimenez have already become quite familiar with each other this season. They'll renew acquaintances again Friday night as Verlander and the Detroit Tigers host Jimenez and the Cleveland Indians in the opener of a three-game series. Detroit (32-26) hopes Verlander can continue the recent dominance by the team's starting pitchers, while Cleveland...

Cabrera's fame lagging behind his bat

Miguel Cabrera is the best hitter in baseball, a statement that can be made without source or qualification. Last year, Cabrera became baseball's first Triple Crown winner since 1967. This year, he leads the majors in two of the three categories -- and is tied for second in the American League with 17 home runs. Comparisons to contemporary hitters are becoming unnecessary. For...

Game 2013.56: Rays at Tigers

Detroit Tigers: 30-25, 1st Place (1 ahead of Cleveland). It’s a big week in the D: Detroit take on the tough Tampa Bay Rays (who, while in 4th place, have a better record than the Tigers), then have a 3-game set with the Cleveland Indians. The Tigers just got back from a 1-4 road trip, in which they scored 20 runs (decent, right, that’s 4 per game), but in which they also had...

Previewing the 2013 MLB Draft for the Tigers

For the first time since selecting Jacob Turner with the ninth overall pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, the Detroit Tigers will make a first round selection. This season’s pick, 20th overall, comes on the heels of a 2012 draft where the club did not make its first selection until the second round (91st overall).

Clayton Kershaw, Prince Fielder Show Elite Talent Red Sox Could Nab With No. 7 Pick in MLB Draft (Photos)

The Red Sox find themselves in a unique spot this year. After a disappointing 2012 season, Boston holds the seventh overall pick in the upcoming draft, meaning they could reel in an elite prospect. It’s no guarantee, of course, that the Red Sox will make out like bandits with the No. 7 pick. But when they do make their selection on June 6, they’ll do so knowing that the No. 7...
