Verlander pitches Tigers to fifth straight win

DETROIT Justin Verlander might have finally figured out April. If the Tigers ace has ever shown a weakness, it has been the first month of the season. He came into 2013 with a 11-15 record in April, including a 4.37 ERA. It's the only month where he hasn't had at least a .600 winning percentage, and it is also his worst ERA. This year, though, Verlander hasn't waited...

Why are Justin Verlander’s pitches so hard to hit?

Associated Press Justin Verlander is good.  What makes him good is his ability to throw all four of his pitches from the same arm slot and with the same arm speed. MLB.com generated a snippet where they compared the movement of all four of JV’s pitches (similar to what was done with Yu Darvish’s pitches last week).  His fastball, change-up, curveball and slider all look the...

Prince Fielder's 3-run home run, zero bat flip

Prince Fielder hit a monster, game-winning, three-run home run against the Twins' Mike Pelfrey on Monday night.  The ball landed near the flag pole in the visitor's bullpen, which is, like, far out, man. Fielder, whose bat flip has been off to a hot start in 2013, decided to hang on to the bat for a little while this time:  FAP.

Miguel Cabrera introduces Miggy’s Salsa at Meijer (VIDEO)

ANDRE J. JACKSON/Detroit Free Press Miguel Cabrera’s bat never really cools off.  The guy only hit .330 last year with 44 home runs and 139 RBIs.  This year, he’s on pace to hit .375 with (only) 20 home runs and a ridiculous 176 RBIs.  But should he go hitless and think his bat needs a little pick-me-up, he now has the cure. Cabrera launched his own line of salsa – Miggy’s...
