Doug Fister, like Justin Verlander, is quickly becoming a stopper for the Detroit Tigers. Despite his defense letting him down in one inning, Fister went eight tough innings, pitching the Tigers to a 8-4 bounce back win against Minnesota. Following … Continue reading →
BEST OF MAXIM
It's not a secret -- the Tigers have serious issues with their bullpen. This week saw meltdowns from just about every key reliever other than Jose Valverde, and left Tigers fans hoping that Bruce Rondon -- a name they had probably never heard until this summer -- can save the day.
Valverde is never going to be Mariano Rivera and he's most likely never going to have another...
Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera is the best choice for American League MVP.
He is the only player in the league with a distinct chance at winning the Triple Crown, and is carrying his team toward the postseason once again.
In fact, the only serious MVP challengers Cabrera has right now are Rangers center fielder Josh Hamilton and Angels rookie outfielder Mike Trout...

The search for a fifth hitter in the Detroit Tigers batting order goes on. Jhonny Peralta hit fifth Tuesday night, for the second time this season, making it four different players to bat behind cleanup man Prince Fielder in as many games. Eight different players have been used in the fifth spot this season. Delmon Young was the guy through the first two-thirds of the season...
One hundred years ago today, baseball's biggest star left a carjacker dead on the streets of the Motor City.
"In 1912 -- and you can write this down -- I killed a man in Detroit," Ty Cobb told his biographer.
It's been a century since the attack and over 50 years since Cobb told his life story to sportswriter Al Stump, and to this day, no one is 100 percent...
Each Monday, good or bad, we’ll look back at the biggest theme of the week that was for the Detroit Tigers. Even though the Tigers closed out an up and down week with two tough losses in Texas and gave … Continue reading →
Considering where things seemed to be heading just two days ago, the Detroit Tigers would have excitedly taken a .500 road trip if given the chance. A big day by Miguel Cabrera and more clutch pitching by Max Scherzer provided … Continue reading →
Andy Dirks’ sixth inning blast off of Twins starter Brian Duensing helped secure an 8-4 win over the Minnesota Twins ending a three game losing streak. Dirks’ home run came after entering the game hitting only .172 this season off of left-handed pitchers, with one home run in 29 at-bats. However Dirks went two for three off of Duensing helping secure the win for Detroit.
I realize this is a semi-outdated (but, is it?) low blow that isn’t quite suited for a respectable blog.
However, it is also hilarious.
Russell Martin, a good baseball player having a bad year, almost poisoned the Tigers earlier this week.
Martin, the New York Yankees catcher, is hitting below .200 for the season—well below his career mark (going into this year) of .272. But despite his failure to get a hit rate of over 80 percent, Martin shot the hearts of Tigers fans into their throats on Tuesday night.
After a hot July, the MLB season has now gone into August. With the new Wild Card spots in play, more teams have hope coming into the stretch run. And, with more playoff births, more aces are trying to pitch their teams into the postseason. For the beginning of August, I’ve taken the list of Cy Young contenders down from ten to eight. I am also looking more in-depth at...
