Detroit Tigers reliever Phil Coke recounts a hilarious conversation he had with slugger Miguel Cabrera. Miggy was curious if he had ever faced Coke prior to becoming teammates. To the dismay of Cabrera, he had whiffed at the hands of Coke.

Each Monday, good or bad, we’ll look back at the biggest theme of the week that was for the Detroit Tigers.
After winning the triple crown and MVP in 2012, many wondered what Miguel Cabrera would do for an encore. Even though there’s no doubting his talent, Cabrera certainly couldn’t put himself in position for a repeat performance of greatness, could...
Miguel Cabrera put a dent in the field at Minute Maid Park Sunday (after putting a few in their left field seats Saturday). Cabrera fielded Astros third baseman Brandon Laird’s grounder diving to his left. Instead of getting up to throw to first, Cabby went to the unconventional barrel roll/throw from his backside combo (video provided by Detroit4Lyfe). Hey, whatever works...
Who would have thought that just over a month ago that the savior of the bullpen would have been the disgraced Jose Valverde. His return to the Tigers pen has allowed for guys to return to traditional and more defined roles which has provided stability to the end of close games.
Pitchers are creatures of habit. They do their best when they know when they will be pitching in games...
The Detroit Tigers are rolling after a four-game sweep, though they may be facing a stiffer challenge to start the week as they look to continue their winning ways.
The Tigers go for their fifth straight victory as they open a two-game series against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.
Detroit swept woeful Houston to close last week to give it nine wins in 10 games, outscoring...
19-11, 1st place, 1.5 games up.
Well, this has been a fun stretch. Your Tigers have now won 9 out of 10 games, outscoring their opponents 74-25 (that’s a pythagorean winning % of 89%, or about 143 – 19). Now, the last 7 games were played against the Astros and Twins, so let’s no be disappointed if they don’t score 5 in the first every game here on out. But the Tigers did...
This weekend the Detroit Tigers outscored the Houston Astros 37-8 in a four game sweep at Minute Maid Ballpark. Detroit 8 home runs, 3 off of Philip Humber, who allowed 8 earned in 4 innings, and now owns and 0-7 record. Miguel Cabrera added 7 hits, including a two home run game, 7 RBI and scored 5 times. Could he possibly win back-to-back Triple Crown's? Prince Fielder...

Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera makes a web gem from the seat of his pants at the hot corner. Cabrera not known for his defense looked like a Gold Glover ranging to his left, then throwing across the diamond while rolling on the seat on his pants.

The fantasy stock report is a weekly article that will provide insight on particular hitters or pitchers whose stock is either rising or falling based on recent performances. This week we’ll look at a pair of pitchers: Max Scherzer and Matt Moore. You may be surprised which one I believe will be the true fantasy ace in 2013. Bullish: Max ScherzerMax Scherzer is an ace! There...
AKRON – The Akron Aeros fell to the Erie SeaWolves 7-4, despite a pair of home runs from Chun-Hsiu Chen and Quincy Latimore on Monday night.
Right-hander Wil Roberts (1-0, 0.00) started for Akron and to countered Erie right-hander Victor Larez (4-0, 3.54). Roberts tossed a shutout in his debut with the Aeros in Altoona as he earned a 5-0 win, but couldn’t keep the SeaWolves...
With Game 1 of the Washington Nationals vs. Detroit Tigers series getting rained out Tuesday night in Washington D.C., I would like to catch up on a few things. Things are a little crazy right now with the kickoff of youth baseball. I struggle to find time to coach not one, not two, but three [...]
In this week’s edition of the Triple Play, we look at the most consistent hitter in the game, a closer banished to the minors and more. Off we go:
Miguel Cabrera, Detroit Tigers
Talk about en fuego. In the past week, he smashed four homers, drove in 13 runs and punished opposing pitchers to the tune of a .461/.562/1.038 batting line. Prepare to roll your eyes: Cabrera...
Detroit Tigers, 18-11, 1st Place (.5 ahead of KC).
The Tigers have their bags packed, and prepare to leave Houston a bit reluctantly, one imagines, after their party of a game last night and a 3-for-3 start to the series. After leaving the strangely-named Minute Maid Park (there is not a tiny maid anywhere in sight), the Tigers have a two-game howdy of a series in Washington, and...
