It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
The 2011 and 2012 American League Most Valuable Players, Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera, were two of four Tigers players who rode around in luxury cars during North American International Auto Show this past weekend.
After the parading around completed, Cabby, JV, Phil Coke and Torii Hunter took the stage for a little Q&A with Fox Sports Detroit’s Rod Allen.
The highlight (from MLive) Cabrera doing his best Verlander on days that the Sir Nasty takes the bump. He led in with that when Verlander pitches, he doesn’t “talk to ANYbody.”

Welcome to part 2 of my ‘burning questions’ segment as the Detroit Tigers offseason moves toward spring training. For part 1, published last Friday, click here.
On to the questions and answers:
Can another AL Central team overtake Doug Fister and the Tigers?
Who will challenge the Tigers for the AL Central crown?
The Twins are still in a rebuilding mode and are already out of...
Dave Dombrowski realizes the offseason is never over until opening day.
That was certainly the case last year, when the Detroit general manager brought slugger Prince Fielder to the Tigers in late January. This offseason has been quieter in Detroit, but Dombrowski keeps his ears open for possible acquisitions even now, with spring training set to start in a couple weeks.
I never owned a pair of shoes that were the signature footwear for an athlete. That means, no Bo Jacksons, and no Air Jordans. My parents refused to spend that much money on a pair of shoes. Actually, I take that back. I owned a pair of Patrick Ewings. I got them at Florida flea market not too far outside of Daytona. Needless to say, I have never quite understood the desire to collect...
Andy Pettitte is out, but Justin Verlander might be in. Pettitte bowed out of the World Baseball Classic leaving an open spot on the U.S. squad that is in need of another starting pitcher. And according to CBSSports.com, Verlander "would love to be on the team." Verlander is expected to make a decision by Feb. 20. The final decision is based on how Verlander progresses...
DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello has spent the offseason on the rumor mill.
The Tigers nearly made the Justin Upton trade between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Atlanta Braves a three-team deal by involving Porcello, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com.
Now the Diamondbacks have lost interest in Porcello after picking up Randall Delgado from the Braves. And...
Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander recently stated that he would like to spend his entire career in the Motor City and earn Hall of Fame honors in the process. What is the likelihood of this happening?
According to baseballreference.com career leaders for WAR (wins above replacement), of the Top 50 pitchers of all-time only Walter Johnson, Bob Gibson, Carl Hubbell, Jim Palmer...
DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera could be moving back to first base, but it wont be for long or with the Tigers.
It appears Cabrera will be playing a good deal of his old position for the Venezuelan national team during the World Baseball Classic in March.
For Venezuela, its as simple as WBC manager Luis Sojo putting his best team on the field. Venezuela currently lists five infielders...
Though Andy Pettitte has been known to change his mind, he will not participate in the World Baseball Classic, according to major league sources. The news is not exactly a surprise, considering that Pettitte is 40 and preparing for perhaps his farewell season with the New York Yankees.
Pettitte will be missed, seeing as how the withdrawal of Atlanta Braves right-hander Kris Medlen...
This last baseball season we had one of the oddest, most unpredictable MVP races in memory. 20-year old Mike Trout exploded onto the scene and dominated the game in a way which no one could have predicted for the rookie. Miguel Cabrera – one of the greatest hitters of our time, if ever – actually had a down year by his standards, however with the whole league seemingly in a funk...
