Twins hope to tame Justin Verlander, Tigers

While Miguel Cabrera won't let a few nagging injuries slow him down, Justin Verlander should be more than ready to continue his recent dominance of the Minnesota Twins. As Cabrera deals with his ailing body, Verlander looks to avoid a third straight winless outing Thursday against the visiting Twins. Plagued by groin, abdominal and hip issues, Cabrera still delivered a three...

Verlander struggles in loss to Twins

DETROIT -- The Tigers still have a comfortable lead in the AL Central, and the odds are overwhelming that they will be playing baseball in October for the third straight season. Thursday, though, they looked more like refugees from a World War II movie than a championship-caliber baseball team. Justin Verlander couldn't pitch, Austin Jackson couldn't catch and Miguel Cabrera...

Twins try to jump-start offense against Tigers

Miguel Cabrera got the Detroit back on track by adding to his power surge. He'll try to keep that going while helping the Tigers continue their recent success against the Minnesota Twins. Rick Porcello will also seek to lead Detroit to its eighth win in 11 games versus Minnesota on Tuesday night while extending his personal win streak to six. Detroit had suffered back-to-back...

Cabrera knocking 'em in at record pace

DETROIT -- Home-run sluggers make headlines, and batting averages have defined hitters dating all the way back to Detroit Tigers immortal Ty Cobb. The Triple Crown statistic that musters the least attention and acclaim is runs batted in -- the RBI or ribbie, in the vernacular of the game. Most of the games outstanding hitters, however, will tell you that the RBI is the most important...

Miguel Cabrera Sustains Lower-Body Injury Tuesday Night

Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera sustained what could be another injury as he tries to become the first to win baseball’s Triple Crown in consecutive seasons. Cabrera looked to have aggravated a previous injury according to manager Jim Leyland.  Whether or not the injury is new, Leyland confirmed to the Associated Press following Tuesday night’s game that Cabrera was in pain […]

Ailing Cabrera out of Tigers lineup

Third baseman Miguel Cabrera is out of the starting lineup for Detroit's game against the Cleveland Indians. Cabrera has been bothered by a strained left abdominal wall for more than a month. The reigning AL MVP made an early exit from each of the Tigers' last two games. Cabrera leads the majors with a .359 average and 130 RBIs, and his 43 home runs put him four behind...

Twins' Glen Perkins up to the task against Miguel Cabrera

It would appear Glen Perkins has yet to check out despite the Minnesota Twins' ailing season. The way he finished off the best hitter in professional baseball Tuesday, such a course of action remains highly unlikely. Two days after Tigers triple crown repeat candidate Miguel Cabrera beat fellow American League Central Division foe Kansas City with a walk-off homerun, Perkins...

Game 2013.125: Twins at Tigers

Detroit Tigers: 73-51, 1st Place (6.5 ahead of Cleveland). Best record in the AL. Taking 3-of-5 from Kansas City was nice (sorry, Cleveland, but KC seems the the bigger threat right now), but after being swept in both games of the double-header–and held to 1 run and 6 hits–it was very nice indeed. All the better that the two series ending wins were driven off the bat of Miguel...

Twins finally get to Justin Verlander

Ryan Doumit hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning and rookie Chris Herrmann drove in the go-ahead run with a double in the eighth as Minnesota took two of three from American League Central-leading Detroit. The Tigers had rallied from a 6-2 deficit to tie the score on Austin Jackson's three-run homer off Twins reliever Josh Roenicke in the sixth. Rookie left-hander Andrew...

Time To Admit It...Miguel Cabrera Is ELITE

INVISIBLE MONSTER THICKBURGER!!! I don’t know if any of you assholes are paying attention to the Yankees right now (quietly getting back into the wild card race!), but every little news nugget coming out of New York recently is major LULZ. The FACT that Alex Rodriguez is still playing, playing well to boot, getting thrown at constantly, having his lawyers publicly run smack about...
