BEST OF MAXIM
One thing became abundantly clear as the Detroit Tigers failed in their quest for a World Series championship in 2013 – their bullpen must get better.
In part 1 of ‘Building the 2014 Detroit Tigers’ I focused on the infield, and then in part 2 analyzed the outfield, and now we turn our attention to the pen.
The list of relievers that failed the Tigers a season ago consists...
Detroit Tigers superstar third baseman Miguel Cabrera underwent successful surgery to repair a core muscle last week here in Philadelphia. As he came into town presumably for a follow-up visit, he took out the time to check out Eagles practice. Oh how we would wish to have Cabrera in town...
The deadline to extend qualifying offers to impending free agents was 5 p.m. Monday. As general manager Dave Dombrowski indicated Sunday, the Tigers did not make qualifying offers — set at $14.1 million this year — to any of their eight in-house free agents, making them free to negotiate with any club, starting at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday.
That does not preclude the Tigers from...
The acquisition of Jose Iglesias likely sealed Jhonny Peralta‘s future, or lack thereof, with the Detroit Tigers. General manager Dave Dombrowski put what appears to be the final nail in the coffin of Peralta’s chances of returning for the Tigers, as he told Chris Iott of Mlive.com that he doesn’t anticipate pursuing the shortstop as a free agent.
Dave Dombrowski confirmed...
If you were looking for insight on the Tigers’ new hire, click here. If you were looking for opinion on Brad Ausmus from an aesthetic standpoint, well stay right here.
When the hiring of the former catcher, now Detroit skipper, Brad Ausmus was made official by the Tigers organization, there was seemingly two types of discussion. One, how a first-time manager would handle the pressure...
The biggest challenge Brad Ausmus will see as Detroit’s new skipper? Juggling and connecting with many star personalities. (Beauty Playin ‘Eh, Flickr)
Don’t call it a comeback, call it a homecoming.
Brad Ausmus returning to manage the Detroit Tigers represents a return home. Even though Ausmus didn’t play in Detroit longer than five years during his tenure at catcher, he...
Dave Dombrowski has never been a predictable general manager.
Whether he's trading fan favorite Curtis Granderson or coming out of nowhere to sign Prince Fielder, Dombrowski is willing to buck convention every once in a while.
So maybe it wasn't all that surprising that Dombrowski hired Brad Ausmus over the weekend to manage the Detroit Tigers. Ausmus faces immediate pressure...
New Tigers manager Brad Ausmus hasn't announced his coaching staff for 2014, but events on Tuesday make it look like he's going to keep Jim Leyland's pitching coach and have to replace the hitting coach.
Numerous reports indicate that Lloyd McClendon will be named manager of the Seattle Mariners as soon as Wednesday.
McClendon managed the Pirates from 2001-2005, then...
Has Max Scherzer pitched his last game as a Detroit Tiger? With Brad Ausmus in place as the new manager, that’s the most important question looming over Detroit’s hot stove season.
FOX’s Ken Rosenthal reported Wednesday that the Tigers plans for Scherzer are “not clear” and that they are currently in ‘listening, not shopping’ mode”.
But Rosenthal does offer up one...
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers picked up a pair of Silver Slugger awards in voting by major-league managers and coaches.
Third baseman Miguel Cabrera won his fifth award and right fielder Torii Hunter got his second.
Silver Slugger awards are given to the top offensive player at each position in the American and National Leagues. They were handed out Wednesday night on the...
The best hitter in the MLB, Miguel Cabrera, is in town for surgery on jis groin. While in town, the Tigers 3rd baseman has been seen hanging around with the Flyers (with Jakub Voracek, seen below)
and Eagles, with long snapper Jon Dorenbos:
If Cabrera get within a 100 foot radius of Citizens Bank Park, Ruben Amaro Jr. will in all likelihood kidnap him.
So the wait is finally over. After four interviewed candidates and one almost-candidate, the Detroit Tigers have named the 37th manager of their franchise.Former 18 year major league catcher and special assistant to the San Diego Padres, Brad Ausmus, was formally introduced Sunday as the new Tigers skipper during a press conference held at Comerica Park alongside Tigers CEO Dave...
The Nationals want to add an elite starting pitcher in a trade,
according to major league sources. Rays left-hander David Price is
an obvious possibility. But Tigers righty Max Scherzer would be an
even better fit.
The Detroit Tigers have yet to make clear their intentions concerning starting pitcher Max Scherzer. They are said to be willing to listen to offers for Scherzer, and Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports believes the Washington Nationals are one potential suitor for the 29-year-old.
It’s obvious what Scherzer brings to the table, as he was one of the best pitchers in the majors last season...
World Series MVP David Ortiz has won his sixth Silver Slugger award as the top designated hitter in voting by major league managers and coaches.
Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, Detroit third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Minnesota catcher Joe Mauer each were selected for the fifth time.
