"Dealin'" Dave Dombrowski looks to be done with the midseason remake of the Detroit Tigers. Sunday's acquisition of Jeff Baker from the Chicago Cubs, for two players to be named by the end of October, seems likely to complete the roster adjustment a contender would hope to make as it readies for the final two months of the regular season. An injury appears to be the only thing that might make Detroit scramble for more help as it tries to catch up with the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central. "If you look at our everyday lineup," Dombrowski said after the acquisition of Baker, "it's pretty well set. Our starters are set, our bullpen's set. "We do have some guys coming off the (disabled list) that may force us to make some moves, but we'll tackle those. "Our bench is set with Baker and Ramon (Santiago) and Gerald Laird and the guys we have in the outfield, so we're pretty well set." The return of Andy Dirks from...

Why, if Justin Verlander can do it, can't every pitcher throw as many as 130 pitches in a start? And why, if so many pitchers get hurt, doesn't Justin Verlander come up lame? "For me," Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Tuesday when the subject of pitch counts came up, "120 pitches for any pitcher is a piece of cake. But pitch counts are a big thing...

DETROIT -- Curtis Granderson believes Miguel Cabrera deserves more attention as an American League MVP candidate. The way Cabrera has punished the New York Yankees, it's understandable why Granderson feels that way about his ex-teammate. Cabrera continued his assault on the Yankees' pitching staff with a homer and double Tuesday, driving in three runs in the Detroit Tigers...
Monday night, Tigers ace Justin Verlander did something that no other Tigers pitcher had done in over 50 years and that’s strike out 14 total Yankee hitters in a single game. The last pitcher to do this was Jim Bunning in 1958 when he too accomplished the same feet.
Although he did match a career high with the 14 K’s, Monday’s performance by Verlander is something that Tigers...

I watched as much of this game as I could before my confidence disappeared and I switched to...
