Detroit Tigers: A Decade Of Hits And Misses In The 1st Round

1st Round Picks over the last 10 years: Detroit Tigers The Detroit Tigers have had some rather solid success under the regime of GM David Dombrowski and his Director of Scouting David Chadd. The Tigers were known for spending “over slot” to get the guy they wanted for several seasons before bonus spending caps went into place. The Tigers also have been able to draft some lesser...

Martinez at home behind the plate

Victor Martinez was finished as a catcher. The microfracture surgery on his left knee said so. The Detroit Tigers all but officially said so. It became an accepted truth: Martinez, 34, would be strictly a designated hitter and occasional first baseman during the last two seasons of his contract with the Tigers. That changed Friday at Citi Field, when Martinez put on shin guards...

Tigers' Alex Avila could return 'very soon'

Recently it appeared the the Detroit Tigers could be without catcher Alex Avila for an extended stretch after he experienced a headache during a rehab contest.

Consecutive Triple Crowns not out of the question for Cabrera

DETROIT It has been about two months since I thought Miguel Cabrera could win the Triple Crown in consecutive seasons. Hes running away with a third straight batting title and the RBI crown. However, Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has stayed comfortably ahead in the home run derby. Cabrera would hit one to draw closer, and Davis would hit one to keep the lead safe...

Tigers' Octavio Dotel nearing return

The Detroit Tigers' bullpen has been in flux for most of the season, and one reason for this inconsistency has been the absence of right-handed reliever Octavio Dotel. The veteran has been recovering from injury for much of the year, as there were even questions whether or not he'd pitch again. Since then, Dotel has resumed pitching, and he recently joined the Tigers'...

Game 2013.132: A’s at Tigers

77-54, 1st place, 5.5 up on the Indians. The Tigers just treated us to one of the most exciting games of the season, but wound up on the wrong side of 8-6. There was another Miggy Moment, the 2-run HR to right field on a 3-1 pitch off the plate that tied the game. Miguel Cabrera is the Babe Ruth of our time, make no mistake. No pinstripes on that guy, either. He’s a TIGER. Fielder...

How Max Scherzer is Solving his Problem

Max Scherzer is an incredible 19-1, and he’s also considered the frontrunner in this year’s race for the American League Cy Young Award. There is no debating the reality of his record — his record is his record, as numbers are numbers. There is, however, debating whether or not he should be in the lead […]

Tigers blast Mets with 18-hit barrage, sweep series

With the Tigers clinging to a one-run lead in the top of the ninth closer Joaquin Benoit was starting to warm up in the bullpen. Before the Tigers made their second out Benoit was no longer needed to save the game as the lead had ballooned in the raucous ninth. Eight consecutive batters reached base — seven on singles — and the Tigers quickly turned a nail-biter into a laugher...

Davis stands in way of Cabrera's Triple Crown bid

Only Chris Davis stands between Miguel Cabrera and baseball history. As he heads toward the conclusion of another sensational season with the Detroit Tigers, Cabrera has a decent shot at becoming the first major league player to win the Triple Crown in successive seasons. Entering play Monday, Cabrera comfortably led the AL with a .356 batting average, 28 points higher than runner...

Miguel Cabrera crafting historic season

In 2012, Miguel Cabrera added to his mantle a Triple-Crown and a hotly-contested MVP, edging out Mike Trout in one of the most debated award-races in recent memory. In 2013, there will be no such debate. In 2013, the question isn’t whether Miguel Cabrera’s season deserves to stand atop the current crop of players that look so human in comparison. The question is where this season...
