There has been one constant swirling around the Detroit Tigers trade rumor campfire so far this July. No matter which position it seems the Tigers will go after and who may be dealt and received in return, prized prospect Nick Castellanos is here to stay.
Nobody doubts this course of action. Very few question it. And the resolute tone that this topic is generally dismissed with is entirely understandable.
But the Tigers should consider trading Nick Castellanos.
Yes, the same Nick Castellanos who was the organization’s 2011 Minor League Hitter of the Year, and likely will be again in 2012. The same 6’4’’, 210 lb., 20-year old rising star who just earned MVP honors at the annual Futures Game. Yeah, that guy.
Back in the winter of 2007, the Tigers pulled a trade that included two of their most coveted prospects at the time, Andrew Miller and Cameron Maybin. The Tigers also threw in 4 mid-level prospects. In return they got Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis. Ba...

Detroit -- There were great expectations for the Detroit Tigers coming into the 2012 season after they signed Prince Fielder, one of the top free agents on the market.

But, as the old saying goes, the games are not played on paper.
It became clear from the second game of the season that...
One of the bigger stories in Detroit and across the United States the past couple of days is whether or not Kate Upton and Tigers Ace Justin Verlander are in fact dating.

Justin Verlander is arguably the best pitcher in the world right now. While there may have been some doubt as to who should have started for the National League, nobody had any issues with Verlander -- the reigning AL MVP -- taking the mound against the opposing league's best hitters.

In the latest podcast, the staff discusses five changes to MLB they'd make if they were commissioner, Drew Smyly's workload for this season, plus a number of minor leaguers' performance so far this year, including Tommy Collier, Tyler Clark and Jamie Johnson.
Wait 'til you see his ping pong ball trick!
We’re playing FanDuel fantasy baseball again this week, and one way or another I’ll end up feeling like Justin Verlander. If I win, I’m the Justin Verlander who gets to shack up with Kate Upton. If I lose horribly, I’m the Justin Verlander who ruined the All-Star Game.
We’re capping the league at 275 spots this week, so...

Monday night's Home Run Derby was quite the spectacle. You had Kansas City fans booing Robby Cano without mercy, John Kruk eating ribs during a spectacular "interview" with George Brett, Pedro Gomez trying to read tweets, and of course the presence of one Chris Berman.
