On days like this when some cruddy NL team is in town putting on a little league clinic it's all fun and blowout games. The Tigers are at their hottest right now with just a hint of the difficult decisions ahead.
This was another frolic as the Tigers completed a sweep of the slapstick no-stick Phillies with a 12-4 romp. It was so easy it didn't even matter Miguel Cabrera was bizarrely ejected by grumpy ump Chad Fairchild while batting with the bases loaded. Hey Cabrera needed the rest anyhow.
Now it gets serious and the Tigers get nervous and GM Dave Dombrowski gets busy. The non-waiver trade deadline is Wednesday and baseball also might announce another batch of drug suspensions with All-Star shortstop Jhonny Peralta one of about 15 players reportedly in peril.
The way I see it you don't build an expensive home and not buy insurance. So Dombrowski needs to make a deal or two despite the recent surge although he's not willing to concede that point (or any point re...

There’s about to be a sigh of relief in the state of Michigan. The Tigers are starting to look like the dominant team they were supposed to be.
With less than 100 hours left until the trade deadline, the Tigers are 7-3 since the All-Star Break and sit 14 games above .500, with a three-game lead over the Cleveland Indians.
That was the big inhale for the sigh of relief. The beginning...
The good news is he's playing. The bad news is his hip still hurts. Miguel Cabrera, who was thrown out of yesterday's game for arguing, is battling lingering soreness in his hip. He was able to avoid the DL when he first injured the hip, but he may need additional rest here and there.

Miguel Cabrera homered in his first at-bat after returning from a hip injury and Max Scherzer held Philadelphia to one hit in six innings to become baseball's first 15-game winner as the Detroit Tigers routed the Phillies 10-0 Saturday night.

DETROIT (AP) -- Jhonny Peralta's grand slam capped an eight-run sixth inning for Detroit, and the Tigers overcame Miguel Cabrera's ejection in a 12-4 win over the collapsing Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.
Cabrera was tossed while batting with the bases loaded in the third and manager Jim Leyland was ejected, too. Detroit still got plenty of additional chances against a...
By the time Jhonny Peralta broke the game open with a sixth-inning grand slam, the Detroit Tigers were already well on their way to another victory.
For that, they could thank the Philadelphia Phillies, whose eighth straight loss might have been the ugliest of the bunch.

Tuesday night the Tigers–presumably as a pre-emptive solution to an imminent Jhonny Peralta suspension–obtained Red Sox infielder Jose Iglesias as part of a three-team trade that sent Avisail Garcia to the Chicago White Sox and Brayan Villarreal to the Boston Red Sox. Jake Peavy went from Chicago to Boston in the major part of the trade’s third leg.
There was some thought that...
DETROIT -- Dave Dombrowski doesn't know what is going to happen to Jhonny Peralta.
With the trade deadline approaching, he decided he couldn't wait to find out.
In a major trade announced in the first moments of Wednesday morning, the Tigers acquired Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias as part of a three-way trade that saw highly rated outfield prospect Avisail Garcia go to the...
The Detroit Tigers guarded against the expected suspension of their
shortstop, Jhonny Peralta, by adding a gifted young replacement,
Jose Iglesias. Call it the Jake Peavy trade. Or call it Biogenesis
Trade I. Biogenesis Trade II is expected Wednesday.
With Jhonny Peralta apparently headed for a lengthy suspension in the Biogenesis case, the Detroit Tigers reportedly acquired Boston infielder Jose Iglesias in a three-team trade on Tuesday night. The move, reported by several national baseball writers, will send Detroit outfield prospect Avisail Garcia to the White Sox, bring Iglesais to Detroit and move Jake Peavy to Boston.
