Verlander chants 'MVP!' during Cabrera interview

When TBS’ Craig Sager was interviewing Miguel Cabrera following the ALCS, 2011 MVP and Cy Young Justin Verlander got behind Cabby and started the “M-V-P, M-V-P, M-V-P!” chant for the Triple Crown winner.JV is far from the only guy in Detroit that believes that Cabby deserves the MVP.  Crown him.

Verlander reveling in playoff glory

Justin Verlander has accomplished just about everything to which a pitcher might aspire: a Rookie of the Year award, a no-hitter, another no-hitter, a Cy Young, an MVP. Last Thursday in Oakland -- as he bounced off the mound after the last out of his nine-inning, series-clinching masterpiece -- his father noticed something different. "He was giddy," Richard Verlander...

Cabrera lifts Tigers to World Series

DETROIT Miguel Cabrera launched it high and deep into the twilight sun, and when the baseball came down in the left field stands there was little doubt remaining. The Detroit Tigers were headed to the World Series, and Cabreras two-run shot in the fourth inning provided Max Scherzer a four-run lead while nursing a no-hitter. It was, for all intents and purposes, over for the New...

Tigers focus on not letting layoff affect them

And now they wait. Detroit will watch the National League Championship Series to see whether it will go to St. Louis (again) or San Francisco next week for the start of the World Series after dispatching the New York Yankees on Thursday in the minimum four ALCS games. It's a similar scenario to what the Tigers faced in their last World Series appearance, 2006, when they sat...

Tigers' Young named ALCS MVP

Detroit Tigers designated hitter Delmon Young has been selected MVP of the AL championship series.

Girardi almost accidently put A-Rod in Game 4 lineup

A-Rod's in the lineup. A-Rod's out of the lineup.  Make up your mind. Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland had to do a quick double-take after he received two different New York Yankee lineup cards before Game 4 of the ALCS Wednesday afternoon.  The first one listing Alex Rodriguez batting sixth and playing third base.  But then, a courier from the Yankee clubhouse brought...

Pitching matchup won't change after ALCS rainout

DETROIT -- The weather put the Detroit Tigers' party on hold Wednesday night, and when the American League Championship Series resumes Thursday afternoon, the New York Yankees will try to back it up at least another day. After a beautiful, sun-drenched afternoon in metropolitan Detroit, clouds and threatening weather popped up as New York's hitters have done while Detroit...

AL Championship Series Game Four: Tigers 8, Yankees 1

The Detroit Tigers beat the New York Yankees 8-1 in game four of their ALCS matchup, sweeping the series four games to none to advance to the World Series. Before the season, we all expected the Tigers to be in a position reasonably close to this....but the way they got there was totally unexpected. Detroit trailed the White Sox in the AL Central for most of the season before...

ALCS postponed by threat of rain

Game 4 of the AL championship series between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers was postponed because of bad weather in the area Wednesday night - although Comerica Park was still dry when the game was called. Wednesday night's game was rescheduled for Thursday at 4:07 p.m., when Game 5 was originally slated to be played. Detroit leads the best-of-seven series 3-0. The...

Stellar pitching powers Tigers to sweep of Yankees in ALCS

DETROIT -- Built for the postseason, the Detroit Tigers are taking off in the playoffs after struggling to get there. Detroit gained its first World Series berth since 2006 with an 8-1 victory Thursday that swept the punchless New York Yankees from the American League Championship Series in four games. Tigers starter Max Scherzer took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, and Jhonny...
