Found September 04, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
PLAYERS: Miguel Cabrera
TEAMS: Detroit Tigers
via YouTube Through Wednesday, Tigers behemoth Miguel Cabrera was sporting a .355 batting average with 43 jacks, 130 RBIs and 95 runs scored.  To put it lightly, he has mashed (baseball term). So naturally, a singer/songwriter Jeff Tuttle penned this ditty “The Miggy Mash.”  Now, I hate the original of this song more than Monday morning, but I have found myself singing along with Mr. Tuttle all day…

Tigers hope to get Miguel Cabrera back Friday

Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland once again held third baseman Miguel Cabrera out of yesterday's starting lineup for the team's finale against the Boston Red Sox. The Tigers are hoping the game off, in addition to today's off-day, will allow Cabrera to rejoin the team's lineup Friday, according to Jason Beck of MLB.com. While there is optimism that Cabrera...

Tigers’ Jose Iglesias day to day with shin splints

The Detroit Tigers were crushed by the Boston Red Sox last night, but perhaps more concerning was the loss of shortstop Jose Iglesias. The mid-season acquisition exited last night’s game due to a lingering shin-splint problem, leading manager Jim Leyland characterized Iglesias as day to day, according to Jason Beck of MLB.com. "It's been bothering him a little...

Jose Iglesias Calls Return to Fenway an ‘Unbelievable Feeling,’ Enjoying Catching Up With Old Teammates (Video)

The 23-year-old was well-received in Boston, and he admitted to feeling surprised about being traded to Detroit in the three-team trade, but he is enjoying being back in Beantown and catching...

Preview: Shields gets the ball in a big game -- just like the Royals envisioned it

The Detroit Tigers seem to be cruising to an AL Central title, and Anibal Sanchez is on the cusp of the matching a career-best winning streak. Sanchez goes for a sixth straight victory Friday night when the Tigers open this three-game road series against the Kansas City Royals, the most recent team to defeat him.

Game 2013.139: Tigers at Red Sox

81-57, 1st place, by a lot. No wonder the Boston faithful gave Jose Iglesias a standing O yesterday afternoon. Besides his double, he was the cornerstone in 3 double plays yesterday, the last of which demonstrated his ridiculous athleticism and baseball IQ. First of all, he pretty easily got to a ball well to the right of 2B. He then managed to contort his body and tag a passing...

Game 2013.140: Tigers at Red Sox

81-58, 1st place, when do magic numbers become a thing? I’m up against the clock today, friends, so just a quick intro to get the discussion going. You don’t see too many 0-4 nights for Cabrera, makes me wonder if he was really okay. He’s out again today, and now I really wish that he had sat yesterday. Jason Beck did a whole post on yesterday’s Pena out at the plate; gist...

Red Sox Take Important Step in Proving Playoff Readiness With Big Win Over Max Scherzer, Tigers

Though most players avoided admitting it, Tuesday night’s game felt like postseason baseball at Fenway Park. The matchup featured not only the best two teams in the American League in the Red Sox and Tigers, but also the star of each team’s respective pitching staff. It has been said that this year’s edition of the Boston Red Sox is built for the regular season, but ill-suited...

Oddsmakers Expect Tigers-Red Sox Series to Be ALCS Preview

The Detroit Tigers have played the Chicago Cubs four times in their postseason history yet somehow have yet to face the Red Sox in the playoffs. Think about that. If Bovada oddsmakers are correct, there will be a Tigers-Red Sox matchup in the American League Championship Series next month. Detroit is the +150 AL pennant favorite with Boston second at +300. It’s now all but a lock...

Recap: Middlebrooks' Slam, Papi's 2,000th Hit Rout Tigers 20-4

Two mediocre pitchers faced off in Rick Porcello and Ryan Dempster in the series finale vesus the Tigers. You know what that means? Home run deby. If you had tickets in right field, you picked a great night for a lot of action. Not only were there multiple bombs to right field, but Shane Victorino went falling into the stands to make a catch. Nothing Jeter-esque, but still not bad...

Scherzer has rare defeat in Tigers' 2-1 loss

Max Scherzer will have to make at least one more start before reaching 20 victories. Boston's Jon Lester outdueled Scherzer as the Red Sox edged Detroit 2-1 on Tuesday night, ending the Tigers right-hander's chance to become just the second pitcher to open a season with a 20-1 record. ''We've got two of the top teams in the American League. We've got great...

Lester outduels Scherzer in Tigers' loss to Red Sox

If you wanted to know why Max Scherzer was not able to win his 20th game of the season Tuesday night, just look at the box score. When Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera (back in the lineup after missing three straight games), Prince Fielder and Victor Martinez go a combined 3-for-16 (.188) with zero RBIs, it's probably not going to be your night. Scherzer pitched extremely well...

Game 140: Tigers at Red Sox - Lester looks to prevent win No. 20 for Scherzer

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer Even without Miguel Cabrera, the Detroit Tigers showed why they are still considered the team to beat in the American League, shutting out the Boston Red Sox 3-0 in the series opener on Labor Day. Detroit (81-57) now trails Boston (82-57) by a half-game for the best record in the AL with a chance to overtake the top spot tonight. Jon Lester has...

ALCS Possible Matchup - Red Sox vs. Tigers

Photo Courtesy of NESN Conor Frederick Contributing Writer Yesterday's match up had the feel and look of a playoff game. It was a tight pitchers duel between two aces and the crowd was into it. Why? Because the road back to another World Series will go through the Motor City in the ALCS. Simple as that. If we make it past the ALDS, we will most likely see Detroit again. If...

Scherzer takes second loss of season
