For the Detroit Tigers and Jim Leyland, It is Now or Never

Doug Fister: The Tiger’s Forgotten Man

Story by: Beth Kostecki The high-profile starting rotation of the Detroit Tigers always gets a lot of buzz. Befitting his role as unquestioned ace of the staff, Justin Verlander draws the bulk of attention. Chatter about Rick Porcello and Anibal Sanchez is as uneven as their performances. And with a strong second half, Max Scherzer is the golden boy du jour. In the midst of this...

Verlander sporting Cabrera for MVP t-shirt

Tigers picher and reigning American League Most Valuable Player and Cy Young award winner Justin Verlander is ready to relinquish his MVP award.  But he doesn’t want just anyone to have it.  Tuesday before the Tigers’ tilt with the White Sox, JV was sporting a t-shirt supporting Cabrera in the MVP race.  He posted a picture of himself on his Twitter account. Verlander spoke...

Poor defense costs Tigers in series-opening loss at Chicago

Lack of offense continues to be a problem for a team that figured it would be able to club its shortcomings out of mind. The Detroit Tigers lost 6-1 at Chicago on Monday night to drop three games behind the first-place White Sox with three games yet to go in the series. The Tigers have dropped the first four games of a 10-game trip that even they admit is critical to their postseason...

Scherzer, Fielder pace Tigers' win over ChiSox

CHICAGO (AP) -- Max Scherzer pitched six effective innings to earn his career-high 16th win, Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer and the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 8-6 on Wednesday night to move within a game of the AL Central lead. Scherzer (16-6) allowed a run and four hits, including the first of two homers by Kevin Youkilis. The right-hander struck out seven...

Game 2012.143: Tigers at White Sox

75-67, 2nd place, 1 game behind CWS. Scherzer was spectacular again, and with his team leading 16th win, he’s got an outside shot at 20 wins this year. “So that gets us to tonight. Regular season games don’t get any better. Division rival. Ace v. Young Phenom. Win and we’re tied for first. My plan is progressing as planned, and I fully expect JV to bring it tonight.”...

Miguel Cabrera takes “Fire Leyland” sign

If there is one thing that you can say about Jim Leyland, it’s that he likes “his guys” to a fault.  If there is a second thing you can say, it’d be that his players always have his back.  That was evident earlier this week when Miguel Cabrera took a “Fire Leyland” sign out of rebelling Tigers’ fan’s hands. According to Detroit Sports Rag, the fan’s name is Justin...

Tigers hold on to beat White Sox, move within a game of AL Central lead

It’s amazing what 48 hours can do for a team in a pennant race. Monday night, the Tigers were three games back of the Chicago White Sox for the AL Central lead as they struggled to push runs across the plate. Fast forward to tonight and all of a sudden the Tigers bats are clicking and now sit just a game back of that coveted top spot in the division. I guess you can say it’s...
