Improvement by Fister and Scherzer could be key to Tigers' second half

Two consecutive solid starts by Doug Fister may have taken some of the pressure off the Detroit Tigers to give up a prime prospect to get a rotation-stabilizing pitcher. The Tigers don't have a bad rotation, but they have a two-tier goal this year -- win the AL Central and the World Series -- and what they have right now might not be enough. Detroit wouldn't be ashamed...

Game 2012.93: Angels at Tigers

Detroit Tigers, 48-44, 2 1/2 games behind Chicago. Doug Fister had his best start of the season, and after two good starts in a row he looks like the Fister from the 2011 pennant run. Fister gave up a solo HR to Albert Pujols in the 1st, and only allowed a single and 2 walks after that, until he was pulled in the 9th at 108 pitches.  Fister struck out 10, which hopefully won...

Tigers Shouldn’t Be Afraid to Trade Prospects Like Castellanos

Twenty-five years later people in Detroit are still talking about John Smoltz for Doyle Alexander. It’s the Motor City’s version of the Alamo. It was around this time in 1987 when the Tigers traded blue chip pitching prospect Smoltz (Lansing Waverly), 20, to the then-awful Atlanta Braves for wily, irascible veteran Alexander, who was 36 at the time of the...

Game 2012.92: Angels at Tigers

Detroit Tigers, 47-44, 3 1/2 games behind Chicago. Alice Cooper threw out the ceremonial first pitch before last night’s game, and from that point on it was Welcome To My Nightmare for young Jacob Turner, who bombed. An outburst of offense was predicted, but I didn’t quite have that in mind (the Tiger offense politely refrained from getting involved). But the good news is that...

Bats come alive in Fister’s gem, Tigers beat Angels 7-2

Things can certainly change a lot in a 24 hour period and the Tigers proved just that as they were able to put last night’s 13-0 disaster behind them and beat the Angels 7-2 Wednesday from Comerica. Start Doug Fister continues to look like the 2011 Fister that the Tigers acquired at the trade deadline. After a shaky start to the season and two trips to the DL, Fister was strong...

Leyland downplays showdown with White Sox

There's a reason Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland downplays Detroit's "showdown series" with the first-place Chicago White Sox this weekend. He should. It's a three-game set and even if one team should sweep the other it will not seriously damage the chances of the other to finish first in the AL Central or be a threat to earn a Wild Card berth. There...

Tigers 5, Angels 1

Max Scherzer struck out nine and got plenty of run support as Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila homered to help the Detroit Tigers beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-1 Thursday. Detroit won the four-game series and has 10 victories in its last 12 games. The Angels have won just five of their last 13 games. Scherzer (9-5) gave up only one run - on Mike Trout's homer in the sixth inning...

Omar Infante Close to Rejoining Detroit Tigers?

The Detroit Tigers' search for a reliable every-day second baseman could result in them welcoming back a familiar face. Continue reading →

Police Search Comerica Park During Game After a Bomb Threat

Bomb threat called into Comerica Park(Photo courtesy of ESPN) According to the Detroit Free Press, there was a bomb threat Tuesday night that caused the police and authorities to search Comerica Park while the game played on and thousands of fans remained at the event.  An anonymous call came into 911 at about 8 p.m., and authorities quickly went into action with an immediate...

Doug Fister’s Pitching, Two Out Hitting Helps Detroit Tigers Blast Los Angeles Angels

Don’t look now, but Doug Fister is quietly rounding back into form. The pitcher turned in his second straight solid performance, and was boosted by some timely hitting as the Detroit Tigers romped over the Los Angeles Angels by a … Continue reading →

White Sox-Tigers Preview

While there figures to be plenty of intrigue surrounding this weekend's three-game set between the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox and second-place Detroit Tigers, neither club appears to be buying in to the hype. Justin Verlander takes the mound opposite Jake Peavy as the surging Tigers try to inch closer to the visiting White Sox on Friday night. After controlling the...

MLB executives: Tigers actively seeking starting pitching

After a Tuesday night loss in which Tigers pitching gave up a total of 13 runs to the Angels (7 of which were charged to rookie Jacob Turner), MLB executives from around the league have told ESPN’s Buster Olney that Detroit is actively seeking starting pitching. https://twitter.com/Buster_ESPN/status/225501326669398017 Among the names that the Tigers have shown some level of...
