Found May 14, 2012 on Detroit4lyfe:
Gerald Laird, always the center of attention for anything involving the Tigers, made sure that his presence was felt during this evening's game against the Chicago White Sox. Laird laid down a sacrifice bunt in the 5th inning, but failed to notice the sniper in the 7th row, who struck as soon as Laird got to the base. And since it was so nice, we did it twice. I'm not sure Laird will be pinch running much longer if this continues.

Gerald Laird trips, rolls and salutes the judges

Tigers catcher Gerald Laird pretty much summed up how badly the Tigers’ offense has been so far this season.  Laird laid down a sacrifice bunt in the 5th inning of Monday’s game.  And then this happened… [SBNation]

GIF: Gerald Laird tumbles over first base…he’s just like the rest of us!

Even though fewer kids are playing the game these days, here is yet another reason why baseball is awesome: because it has chubby goofballs that we chubby goofy guys can relate with. Ladies and gentleman…Gerald Laird! GIF source: SBNation via Reddit You have to love Laird’s sense of humor about it too, popping right up with a smile and bowing to the U.S. Cellular Field crowd...

The Waiver Wire: Andy Dirks

Detroit Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks has been on fire since being inserted into the lineup as a regular on April 26th and time may be running out to pick him up in any quality fantasy baseball league worth participating in this season.

Tigers players recall their mothers

The Tigers might not be running away with the Central Division as fans had hoped, but they'll always have the support of their moms. For many of them, their mothers were the ones who drove them to all of their baseball games growing up, helping pave the way for the careers they have today. Tigers fans may owe Austin Jackson's mom, Alice, as much gratitude as her son does...

Game 2012.35: Tigers at White Sox

Justin Verlander set a good example for young Drew Smyly, and callously shut down the Oakland A’s offense.  That’s the way to deal when your own team can’t score runs. Today’s surprise prediction:  Smyly has his first shaky outing, but the offense will more than make up for it. A lot of things have gone wrong with the offense.  Miguel Cabrera went on a career worst slump...

The 2012 edition of the Detroit Tigers are off to a sluggish start according to many of the experts. Their 17-17 record logs them into second place in the American League Central Division. Weren’t they expected to do more? Shouldn’t they have at least a five game lead at this point? At the beginning of [...]

Tigers-White Sox Preview

A chance to face the Chicago White Sox couldn't come at a much better time for struggling Detroit Tigers slugger Prince Fielder. Judging by his recent experience, Fielder appears to have a promising chance to end the longest hitless stretch of his career Monday night while helping the Tigers earn back-to-back victories for the first time in nearly a month. Fielder is 0 for...

Tigers weekly: Inge haunts former Tigers

It says something about the Detroit Tigers season that, when one of their expensive hitters finally got going this week, it was Brandon Inge. The player that got run out of town on a rail turned into Babe Ruth as soon as his former teammates hit the West Coast. In his last six games, he's hitting .304 with four homers - two grand slams - and 16 RBIs. In his nine games with...
