The only thing Jim Leyland has had to worry about since the Tigers arrived in Cleveland, is getting a sore hand from all the high-fives he is offering while his Tigers return to the dug-out after crossing the plate. The Tigers had a game and a half lead over the Indians before starting this series at Progressive field, now that lead has grown to 3-1/2 games with 2 games left to play in the series. Detroit has out-scored the Indians by 12 runs in the first 2 games. The Tigers will give Doug Fister the start this afternoon against the Indians Corey Kluber. Fister is 5-3 in his 12 starts against the Indians. The Tigers haven’t been kind to Indians pitching on this trip. If Kluber can’t stop the Tigers offense, the Indians will be in trouble once again. Detroit could come away from this game with a 4-1/2 game lead in the A.L. Central. Leyland has to be pleased with what he is seeing from his team thus far. If the Tigers take both of the games left in Cleveland the Tigers will have a 7 game win streak in place. Two more than any other win streak this season.

Detroit Tigers: 47-38, 2nd Place (2.5 ahead of Cleveland).
Yes, it’s that time of the season, that 4th of July lull where DTW game threads only draw a couple of comments and places like ESPN resort to discussing topics such as the All-Star game snubs before the teams are actually named. Snub predictions, I guess.
Anyway, despite the lulliness of the week the Tigers are in gear...
There's a reason why last year Miguel Cabrera took home baseball's first Triple Crown in decades and is threatening to do so once again. He flattens baseballs, enough said.
When announcing the MLB All Star teams on Saturday night, ESPN made a bit of a mistake on the AL All Star reserves. Rather than list Torii Hunter of the Detroit Tigers, Torontoii Hunter was listed. No word on Torontoii’s career stats, but I imagine they’re pretty bad. Good job, good effort, ESPN. Perhaps a little proofreading next time?
Torontoii Hunter? Must be a new...
The Detroit Tigers’ bullpen took another hit yesterday, as
the team placed left-handed reliever Darin Downs on the 15-day disabled list
with rotator cuff tendinitis in his throwing arm, according to Jason Beck of
Downs pitched the ninth inning of Saturday’s contest, and
after his outing he reported soreness in his shoulder. He surrendered two hits
It may just be me, but I thought that baseballs were not supposed to be able to be flattened like this. You have to love the phantom camera when it produces images like this. All evidence would seem to suggest that Miguel Cabrera swings a baseball bat hard.

The veteran pair again looks to lead the visiting Tigers as they try for an eighth consecutive victory over the struggling Indians on Sunday.

Detroit Tigers: 48-38, 1st Place (3.5 ahead of Cleveland).
Detroit continued its dominance of the division rival Cleveland Indians last night, with a 9-4 win which featured a good 5-inning return by Anibal Sanchez. The Tigers have now taken 7 in a row from the Tribe, and 8-of-10 for the season. The Tigers have already outscored Cleveland 16-4 in this series, and 49-22 over the...
In the bottom of the 5th inning, with a massive 7-1, Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder turned an incredibly strange double play. Cleveland Indians outfielder Drew Stubbs hit a blooper to Prince, which he dropped. The ball was still in fair territory, but base runner Lonnie Chisenhall didn’t run. Prince casually walked over to Chisenhall, tagged him on the leg and...
Rick Porcello is somewhat of an afterthought on Detroit's deep and talented pitching staff.
On Friday night, he was second to none.
Porcello pitched seven sharp innings, Jhonny Peralta and Victor Martinez drove in two runs apiece and the Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians for the sixth consecutive time, winning 7-0 to extend their lead in the AL Central.
Porcello (5-6) allowed...
