It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
It isn’t in a cup and it isn’t made of cake. But nonetheless, the Tigers are calling this concoction a “meatloaf cupcake.” And you can buy them (and eat them!) at Comerica Park for as long as the Tigers are playing postseason baseball. Delaware North Companies Sportservice, the company who runs the Tigers concessions, said that they were rolling out some surprises for the playoffs. This particular surprise combines meatloaf, mashed potatoes, cheese and chives in a miniature batting helmet (formerly known as an ice cream bowl.) While I’m always in for a good meatload (my mom makes the best) and mashed potatoes, I’m going to pass on the ballpark version. via @MLB [via @MLB]

The Detroit Tigers lost to the Boston Red Sox 1-0. It was a wasted effort by the Tigers Ace Justin Verlander who had little problem doing his job. That’s a lot more than we can say for Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder. Verlander pitched as well as ever. he threw hard for 8 inning and he allowed only 4 hits. He struck out 10 and only walked one. His one mistake that would turn...
DETROIT -- If it is possible for a 6'7" man to get lost in a crowd, Doug Fister would be the one.
He's already the forgotten man of the Tigers pitching rotation -- not a Cy Young winner like Justin Verlander and, quite soon, Max Scherzer, and without an ERA championship and a 17-strikeout game like Anibal Sanchez.
He doesn't throw 97 mph like the other three,...
Whether or not the Detroit Tigers' bats woke up Wednesday night because manager Jim Leyland sent his hitters to the plate in a different order is debatable, but the move apparently jolted outfielder Austin Jackson out of his slumber in more ways than one. Jackson said he woke up to the news that he was bumped from his familiar leadoff spot to batting eighth in Game 4 against...
Jim Leyland is an elder statesman of the game, usually recognized as one of the best managers in baseball, and his Tigers just won their third straight division title. The three best managers of the last generation, Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa, and Joe Torre, have all retired. So, is Leyland a future Hall of Famer?
Jim Leyland has managed for 22 seasons. Remarkably, all of them have...
Miguel Cabrera got an easy steal in the fourth and while the game was anything but a steal it was a pretty easy win for the Detroit Tigers. A 5-run second inning gave the Tigers an early comfortable lead that they never lost. They tacked on another pair of runs in the fourth for a 7-0 lead.
Boston would make it look a little better by tacking on a run in the 6th, 7th, and...
It was early on Wednesday morning when hitting coach Lloyd McClendon sent out the chain of text messages that left the Tigers' everyday players stunned.
"I was like 'Really?'" Torii Hunter said of his reaction upon finding out what the lineup would be later that night in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series -- and the expression was justified....
Does lineup construction matter? Other than making sure a team's best batters get more at-bats, many would argue that how a lineup is put together doesn't make much of a difference.
However, the Tigers and manager Jim Leyland will probably disagree with that. Their fans might too. At least for one night. Detroit's new-look lineup broke out for seven runs, battering...
After game 2 in which Miguel Cabrera belted a home run (his second in three games), he had arguably the worst postseason game of his career on Tuesday at Comerica Park, going without a hit for the first time as a Tiger in the postseason. What went wrong? We dive in.
W: Fister (1-0) L: Peavy (0-1)
DETROIT, Michigan –
The Detroit Tigers scored 5 runs in the 2nd inning and added 2 more in the 4th to beat the Boston Red Sox 7-3, and tie their American League Championship Series at 2 games a piece.
The offensive woes of the Detroit Tigers have been well documented over the last couple weeks, leading manager Jim Leyland to make a change in the...
DETROIT -- Mike Ilitch has spent millions of dollars trying to create the exact situation the Tigers faced on Tuesday night.
Game 3 of the ALCS, with his ace pitching a masterpiece and his two best hitters coming up to the plate in the biggest situation of the day. Down 1-0 in the eighth inning, but with runners on the corners and only one out.
That's why the Tigers were willing...
The Tigers couldn't grab a win in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Tuesday against the Red Sox and they dodged a big blow to their lineup.
Victor Martinez grabbed his left quad after hitting a one-out single in the ninth inning before gingerly walking off the field for a pinch-runner.
While there was some concern about the severity because Martinez missed...
A revitalized Austin Jackson delivered in manager Jim Leyland's
revamped lineup as the Detroit Tigers built a big lead and held on
this time, beating the Boston Red Sox 7-3 Wednesday night to even
the AL championship series 2-2.
Coming into this series, the FOX announcers made sure we knew one thing: THAT JUSTIN VERLANDER IS AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE OF NATURE.
Seriously. You DO NOT WANT TO FACE THIS GUY IN THE ALCS. AND THE TIGERS ARE GOING TO THROW HIM AT YOU TWICE! TWICE!
Even as the Sox turned in some late night fireworks on Sunday to turn the tide of game two, all we heard about was VERLANDER WAITING IN...
After calling Jim Leyland “Joe” earlier in the game, Erin Andrews nearly had another embarrassing name screwup in a postgame interview with Mike Napoli. When asking Napoli, who homered for the game’s only run, about his success against Verlander, Andrews had to stop herself from channeling her inner-Belieber at the last second.
The post Erin Andrews nearly refers to Justin...

DETROIT -- Turning the page.
Thats what its all about for closers, who must live in the present and not the past.
Detroit Tigers closer Joaquin Benoit -- after giving up the game-tying grand slam to Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz during the eighth inning Sunday -- said: "For me, its already off. Nothing we can do about it right...
