IS IT TRUE?
Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander was asked about the rumor that he is dating supermodel Kate Upton. See what his response was.
DETROIT -- Not long ago, Quintin Berry almost gave up on baseball and searched for a "real job."
Instead, he stuck with his dream and is now headed to the World Series with the Detroit Tigers.
"I'm just trying to take this in," Berry said. "It is all a little hard for me to believe."
This past offseason, Berry was released by his fourth team in...
It wasnt all that long ago that Detroit Tigers fans wanted to burn Jim Leyland in effigy.
Now, after five magical weeks, they want to toast the Tigers manager instead.
Getting his team to the World Series, which opens Wednesday night in San Francisco, has done wonders for Leyland's image.
When the Tigers were three games behind the White Sox with 16 to play, he was labeled...
At least he didn’t eat it. The Detroit Tigers bat boy was caught on camera behind manager Jim Leyland picking his nose and than rolling whatever came out of it in his fingers.
Not a good way to kickoff Game 1 of the 2012 World Series. I heard that bat boy was picking the Tigers in 5 because they will pick apart the Giants pitching because they have great pickoffs…alright...
Jim Leyland and the Detroit Tigers found out the hard way that rest means rust in the World Series.
Six years ago, their last Series appearance, they lounged around for nearly a week before getting wiped out by St. Louis.
This time, while once again waiting for the National League opponent to be decided, they stayed busy by working on bunts, playing against their instructional...
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Justin Verlander pawed at the mound with his feet during warmups, looked flabbergasted when his pitching coach came out for a visit and appeared out of sorts from the start.
Once again, nothing went right the for the Detroit Tigers ace in the World Series.
Verlander allowed two of Pablo Sandoval's record-tying three home runs, an RBI single to fellow pitcher...
A no doubt winner with the Tigers last round and a wrong side prediction with the Cardinals who blew a 3-1 lead. Throughout the playoffs by series this brings my total record to 4-2. As stated at the beginning of the post season I loved the Detroit Tigers +600 to win it all. Now that they have gotten this far I clearly will not be changing my opinion.The main reasons as to why they...
While the National League will be represented by the San Francisco Giants who last appeared in the World Series in 2010, winning it all against the Texas Rangers. With that said lets take a look at the 2012 World Series between the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants:
Look Into The Face Of Giant Fear
We're going to make this quick and dirty, because baseball stopped being very interesting to me weeks ago, and even a historic comeback by the Giants has not re-stoked my fire. Also, I'm just seeing this on really, really simplistic levels.
Here's what I wrote about why the Tigers were going to beat the A's in five, which was exactly...
The 2012 World Series gets underway tonight in San Francisco with Justin Verlander and Barry Zito taking the mound for the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants.
The Tigers have taken the American League by storm after being out of the playoff picture with two weeks remaining in the season. The Giants have played much of the Postseason with their backs to the wall, rallying from...
The fall classic begins tonight. The Detroit Tigers travel to California to face the San Francisco Giants needing four more wins to achieve the ultimate baseball goal. This should be a very competitive series, with most pundits weighing in for one team or the other in six or seven games. Game one features a pitching match up classic between Justin Verlander and Barry Zito. Here...
SAN FRANCISCO -- Seven years later, it was the same result for Justin Verlander. The Detroit Tigers right-hander lasted just four innings and took the loss Wednesday night as the San Francisco Giants rolled to an 8-3 victory behind Pablo Sandoval's three home runs in Game 1 of the World Series at AT&T Park. Two of Sandoval's three home runs came off Verlander as he...
