It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Instagram | jonahballow Justin Verlander was spotted giving Kate Upton a smooch on the cheek during Friday’s Knicks-Magic game in Orlando. This is their second or third game that the two have attended in the last month. She really looks like she enjoyed it. And she’s thrilled with JV’s weird little “bah bah bah bah” afterwards. Kate, if you’re getting tired with the dude with the $200 million contract, Ferrari, Lamborghini and child-bearing hips, then I have a buddy who might be interested. [Vine via "Drinking is a sport"]
BEST OF MAXIM
Justin Verlander is living the life. Verlander, who is back with Kate Upton – who looks good all the time and in zero gravity, showed up to Spring Training in this orange Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. For those of you who are obsessed with beautiful cars like I am, here’s the official site for the car.
Verlander is a car enthusiast, and when you make the kind of money...
Over the past two seasons the Detroit Tigers have been a relatively healthy team in terms of games missed, especially considering the advanced age of some of their players. This good fortune has allowed the front office to hide the organization’s lack of overall depth.
A farm system that is said to rank 28th out of 30 won’t offer the Tigers much if a few key players start to...
LAKELAND, Fla. -- The Tigers are still a relatively healthy bunch through five days of full-squad workouts.
But as one would expect, little things are beginning to crop up at this point, although nothing is considered serious.
Catcher Alex Avila did not participate in Saturday's workout.
"Avila was held out today," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Just because...
LAKELAND, Fla. -- Bruce Rondon left the Tigers clubhouse after the morning meeting in street clothes, but there's nothing to be alarmed about.
"He went home sick," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Nothing major. Just to be safe, we let him go home and rest. We don't want anything lingering, or getting anyone else sick."
Ausmus said Rondon's symptoms...
Phil Coke has been too important to the Tigers not to be important anymore.
So all signs the lefty reliever can be a major contributor this season are welcome -- even if they're just early signs, as they've been so far.
Coke threw his first live batting practice on Wednesday.
For some established pitchers, the first such session is taken in stride. Throw your pitches,...
Last year, the Detroit Tigers never fully settled on a closer. With the arrival of Joe Nathan, that shouldn't be a problem this season.
The rest of the bullpen looks pretty good, too.
The Tigers added in the offseason Ian Krol - in a trade with Washington -and free agent right-hander Joba Chamberlain, who had a rough year with the New York Yankees but showed up to Tiger Town...
After two years of trying to outslug the rest of the American League, the Detroit Tigers are taking a new approach.
Gone are Prince Fielder and Jhonny Peralta, replaced by left fielder Rajai Davis and second baseman Ian Kinsler, who are expected to help give the Tigers speed on the bases like they haven't had in decades.
Davis has been a journeyman's career. The Tigers...
One of the great things about spring training is having a young player catch your eye. His talent teases and his manner suggests he'll one day be a fixture in the majors.
In the weeks ahead, somebody -- in a game in Lakeland or Clearwater -- will do something that makes me imagine them playing in Comerica Park.
That's when you really start following a player -- when you become...
LAKELAND, Fla. -- The situation in Venezuela is serious and never far from the minds of the many Venezuelans on the Detroit Tigers.
Friday morning in the clubhouse, the Venezuelan players and first base/infield coach Omar Vizquel posed for a photo with the Venezuelan flag and messages of support for their people.
Vizquel, Miguel Cabrera and others sent out the photo via Twitter. ...
LAKELAND, Fla. -- Pop-up drills aren't the most thrilling spring activity but they have to be done.
Former Tigers manager Jim Leyland wasn't a huge fan of them because of the chance that somebody could get hurt, but new manager Brad Ausmus is matter-of-fact about it.
"I'm not overly concerned about that," Ausmus said. "It's just one of those things...
LAKELAND, Fla. -- Baseball America announced its top 100 prospects on Wednesday. Forty-five of them were pitchers. Not one was traded this offseason.
Why is this relevant?
Because it helps explain a trade by the Tigers that left many of us baffled -- right-hander Doug Fister to the Nationals for a modest pitching prospect, left-hander Robbie Ray, and two complementary parts, left...
Wish you were in Lakeland to watch the guys up close? TigsTown has you covered. Watch a number of players take batting practice, including MVP Miguel Cabrera and power-hitting prospect Steven Moya!
Jose Iglesias, if he plays full time, will be part of a debate between he and Andrelton Simmons on which is the better fielder. Simmons is fresh off one of the best fielding seasons for a shortstop...ever. Iglesias has that kind of reputation, but other than a few other-worldly highlights from 2013, has yet to put a full season together. But today, the focus is not on their fielding...
