Found October 24, 2012 on NESN.com:
The Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants will be kicking off Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night, and for Detroit it will mark their first meaningful game in a week. Some fans might be worried that the Tigers won't be ready after their long layoff, but NESN Nation's Dan Duquette isn't one of them. In fact, he's pretty sure that Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder are proof that Detroit won't be worried one bit about a long layoff. Check out why, along with some thoughts on the New York Islanders' move to Brooklyn and the Patriots' preparations...

Justin Verlander’s Location Problem

Headed into last night, the Tigers were the favorites to win the World Series in large part because they had Justin Verlander, and people tend to favor teams who have ace starters in the playoffs. Last night, however, Justin Verlander did not pitch like an ace, and the Tigers jumped on him for five runs in four innings of work – as many as he’d allowed in his previous seven...

World Series Game 1 Preview: Tigers at Giants

Game 1 of the World Series between the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants is upon us. In the ultimate contrast of styles, Justin Verlander will oppose Barry Zito.

Prince Fielder was out at home; Dan Iassogna made the right call

Umpire Dan Iassogna deserves credit for making the correct call on a difficult play to judge at home plate during Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday. Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder was trying to score from first on a double down the left field line by Delmon Young in the second inning. Left fielder Gregor Blanco threw in to home as Prince Fielder was rounding third...

Manager Jim Leyland, pitching coach Jeff Jones...

Close play at home costs Tigers

Things were looking up for the Tigers in the second inning of Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday night. Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner, he of the 11.25 ERA in previous 2012 postseason games, had just hit leadoff batter Prince Fielder. Delmon Young then smoked a double down the line that bounced off a wall and jetted out in foul territory before left fielder Gregor Blanco...
