When the Detroit Tigers came out of nowhere and signed arguably the biggest free-agent next to Albert Pujols, so much hype was built around this team and Prince Fielder. Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder in the same line up, in a weak division? Sorry the rest of the AL Central, don’t even go to Spring Training because [...]

Game 2012.42: Tigers at Indians

20-21, 3rd place, 3 games behind Cle. The Tigers roll into Cleveland to take on the division leading Indians tonight. Sounds odd but let’s not forget that the Indians were 7 games up on the Tigers one year ago, and then mostly held that spot until late July. I think it was Vince in MN who correctly predicted that the Indians would fade and the Tigers would surge in June based on...

Game 2012.43: Tigers at Indians

20-22, 2nd place, 4 games behind Cle. Short one today, but a few links of interest: - How did we miss these Leyland smoking t-shirts? - Some outside of our little site aren’t too worried about where the Tigers will end up this season. Others, on the other hand, think the Tigers dearth of role players justify an “overrated” tag for the team. The position by position comparison’s...

The Detroit Tigers placed infielder-outfielder Ryan Raburn on the bereavement list and called up infielder Danny Worth from Triple-A Toledo. The Tigers announced the moves before the start of a three-game series Tuesday against Cleveland. The team disclosed no further information on Raburn's family situation. The earliest he can return is Friday against Minnesota. The Tigers...

Detroit Tigers Pitching Performance Through 40 Games

One of the Detroit Tigers’ perceived strengths entering this season has actually been of their weaknesses:  Pitching. The only real question regarding the Tigers’ staff in 2012 was that of a fifth starer, a job won by rookie Drew Smyly prior to Opening Day. Maybe, just maybe, he would be the weak link. However, Smyly [...]

Tigers fans need to lay off Raburn following death of his grandmother

Detroit Tigers secondbaseman Ryan Raburn has been the butt of jokes among fans for a couple years now. Perhaps their criticism was justified; he hasn’t put up stellar numbers during his time in Detroit. However, now that he’s been placed on bereavement due to the death of his grandmother, Tigers fans need to dial back [...]

Austin Jackson, Man Of Action For Tigers

The Detroit Tigers are in third place in the American League Central at 20-21.  They’re not where they — and many of us — expected them to be at this part of the season. Yes, the starting rotation’s been inconsistent, other than the supremely good and consistent Justin Verlander. The bullpen has sprung a few leaks, and leads the American League in losses with eight. But...

Detroit Tigers: Can Max Scherzer Be Consistent?

I once heard it said that baseball is the only team sport where each player stands on an island. That statement couldn’t be more true when it comes to pitching. Standing ten inches above the field, and sixty feet and six inches from home plate, it is the pitchers duty to make hitting the hardest [...]

Tigers fail to fend off Tribe in eighth during loss

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jason Kipnis had three hits and scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning as the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 4-2 Wednesday night. Kipnis singled off the glove of Phil Coke (1-1) with one out and took third on a double into the left-field corner by Asdrubal Cabrera.

Same story, another loss for Tigers

Second verse, same as the first. The Tigers scored in only one inning on Tuesday, left 10 runners on base and made key defensive mistakes in a loss to the Cleveland Indians. On Wednesday, the Tigers scored in only one inning, left 10 runners on base and made key defensive mistakes in a loss to the Cleveland Indians. The only things that changed were the date and the score. Wednesday...

Overthinking It: Gio Gonzalez and Max Scherzer are Striking Out Everyone by Ben Lindbergh

Strikeouts are up this season. That, in itself is nothing new: strikeouts have been up in many seasons—most seasons, even—since the dead ball disappeared. The explanations have multiplied almost as quickly as the Ks. The mound is higher. The strike zone is bigger. Hitters are swinging for the fences. Pitchers are increasingly specialized, and they throw pitches they didn’t...
