The game was not without other excitement as Alexei Ramirez was hit by a pitch which cleared both benches. Chris Sale had a pitch that went high and inside on a Detroit batter. Not having seen the issues take place, Chris would NEVER thrown a pitch to intentionally hit a batter. I just do not understand when things like this happen what in the world would that accomplish. We had a good solid series. No one tried anything fancy that caused errors, it was good basic one out at a time ball. You can see patience in the batters box, making the pitcher work harder to get the out. Pack your travel bag kids, its off to the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a three game series with the  at Citizen Bank Park before heading home for the All Star break See you on the field Cricket This article has been read (2) times

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: targeting righty relievers

The Detroit Tigers have been actively scouting relievers across the major leagues as the July 31st trade deadline looms. Detroit isn’t necessarily in need of a true closer but could certainly use the services of a lock down late-inning arm. The ongoing problems from Phil Coke might even push the Tigers into looking at both a righty and lefty arm to add to the mix. Can you honestly...

Leyland ejected after fracas

DETROIT Jim Leyland doesnt get a whole lot of love from Detroit Tigers fans. Hes maligned in the social media and on radio talk shows for continuing to use Phil Coke with the game still in doubt; having too many cronies on his coaching staff; playing Andy Dirks, Don Kelly, Ramon Santiago and Alex Avila too much; not playing Matt Tuiasosopo enough; letting Jose Valverde burn down...

White Sox trade Matt Thornton to Red Sox

Cue up your bad puns about "changing his Sox", but the fact remains: Matt Thornton has been traded from the White Sox to the Red Sox. In return, Chicago gets Boston minor leaguer Brandon Jacobs. The 36-year old Thornton was traded away by the White Sox about two years too late, as he's not the dominant force he was from 2008-2010 anymore. This year, Thornton has...

TV Ratings: Dodgers Hit Another Multi-Year High (Also: Detroit Tigers, MLB on ESPN)

Game 2013.92: Rangers at Tigers

50-41, 1st place, 2.5 ahead of Cleveland. Onward and upward after a series against the White Sox that was, shall we say, insulting. Now come the Texas Rangers, a formidable opponent that matches up favorably against the Tigers just about any way you look at it. The optimist’s view would be that this is one of those rise to the occasion opportunities. Ah, the bullpen. When will...

Matt Thornton Trade Makes Sense for Red Sox Despite Any Concerns Surrounding Southpaw

Boston could always use another Thornton, right? The Red Sox acquired reliever Matt Thornton, along with cash considerations, from the White Sox on Friday in exchange for minor league outfielder Brandon Jacobs. The deal — like any trade, really — carries some risk, but not enough to reconsider the addition of a potentially valuable left-hander to a bullpen in flux. It was no...

White Sox-Phillies Preview

Shipping Up To Boston: Matt Thornton Dealt to Red Sox

Earlier tonight, the White Sox made the first of what could be more than a couple of trades in the coming weeks. Long-time Sox reliever and left-hander Matt Thornton was sent to the Boston Red Sox and AA outfielder Brandon Jacobs.

Boston Red Sox acquire lefty Matt Thornton from White Sox
