Detroit Tigers’ Jose Iglesias Makes Spectacular Playoff Catch

Detroit Tigers’ Jose Iglesias proved to the world why he is known as a defensive wizard.

David Ortiz’s ‘Resume of Awesomeness’ Includes Hitting Home Run With Broken Wrist Back in 2001

David Ortiz has accomplished some tremendous feats with the Red Sox. But to this day, one of the most impressive, manly and just plain awesome things that Ortiz has ever done came while he was still with the Twins. Ortiz, who continues to add to his impressive resume, once hit a home run with a broken wrist while playing for the Twins in 2001. Sure, the blast came more than 12 years...

Jose Iglesias shows off his range with great catch in Game 5

The Red Sox knew the caliber of defense they were giving up when they dealt Jose Iglesias to the Tigers earlier this season, and Iggy made sure to remind them in spectacular fashion during Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday.

David Ortiz Acknowledges Tigers Pitching Is at ‘Another Level’ But Says That ‘Doesn’t Mean It’s Over’ for Red Sox

David Ortiz is 1-for-15 in the American League Championship Series. That one hit was a good one — a game-tying grand slam in Game 2 — but it’s the other 14 at-bats that have him and the rest of the Red Sox shaking their heads. “This is [the] playoffs. Everybody brings their best. The way they’ve been pitching is a whole totally different game,” Ortiz said of Detroit...

Whitaker OK with sharing number

DETROIT -- Lou Whitaker isn't losing any sleep over Jose Iglesias wearing his No. 1. Whitaker was at Comerica Park on Wednesday to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 4 of the ALCS, and his jersey number was the first thing mentioned when he met with the media. "I guess I'm getting the tough questions right off the bat," Whitakers said with a laugh...

Your browser does not support iframes. Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias has some of the best hands in baseball.

Jose Iglesias’ Costly Error ‘Part of the Game,’ Says Tigers Manager Jim Leyland

BOSTON — Isn’t it funny how playoff baseball works? Jose Iglesias, who was traded from Boston to Detroit back in July, did the one thing that no one could have ever expected in the seventh inning of Game 6 of the ALCS. Iglesias, who demonstrated defensive wizardry all series against his former team, made a costly error that opened the door for Shane Victorino‘s game-winning...

Because everything has to be turned into a bit, ‘#Huntering’ is now a thing (photos)

Forget Dufnering. Forget Tebowing and every other played-out “-ing” thing that has captured the imagination of anyone with a Twitter or Instagram account and taken the interwebs by storm over the past few years. Thanks to Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter’s big effort and subsequent flop over the bullpen fence in the ALCS while trying […]The post Because everything has...

Jon Lester bobbles bunt, recovers with unbelievable glove scoop

After Jose Iglesias robbed David Ortiz of a base hit earlier in the game, Jon Lester gave the Tigers shortstop a taste of his own medicine in Game 5 of the ALCS.

Horrible “neighborhood” call at second base; Boston fans show true colors

The Tigers led 1-0 with the bases loaded and one out in the second base.  Jose Iglesias hit a ball to Dustin Pedroia who kicked it around before flipping it to Stephen Drew for the force out at second.  Don’t lecture me on the neighborhood play – I’ve been there, done that.  But this assumption that Drew was remotely close to the bag by second base umpire Dan Iassogna was...

Red Sox shotgun beers to celebrate trip to World Series (Video)

Playing Catch Up, Sox Closing In

As usual, I’m sure things were very quiet in my absence. Watching and following Boston sports from 3000 miles away might actually be the best way to do it. The games are finished earlier, there’s no idiotic post-game hotsportztakes and forced worries following uplifting wins, and you’re not tempted to tune into sports radio to hear how they can take the best wins and make them...
