Detroit Tigers Pre-Game Dance (VIDEO)

According to fans who were there, the Tigers celebrated some nice weather with a pre-game dance before a game against the Orioles last weekend.  That’d be reliever Joba Chamberlain in the knit cap leading the bunch of convulsing white guys.  Miguel Cabrera didn’t approve. I absolutely approve.

Tigers closer Joe Nathan blows another save while dealing with ‘dead arm’

When Joe Nathan signed a two-year deal during the offseason, the Tigers and many of their fans thought they were getting stability in the backend of the Tigers otherwise questionable bullpen. After all, despite nearing 40 years old, Nathan had saved 80 games over his previous two seasons with an ERA just over 2.00 and a WHIP under 1.00. Well, Nathan has blown two of his first three...

Nate Robertson attempting comeback in Toledo

TOLEDO, Ohio -- It's been eight years since left-hander Nate Robertson was a member of a Detroit Tigers pitching rotation that won an American League pennant, and four years since he last threw a ball in the majors.

Pregame 8: Detroit Tigers at San Diego Padres

The Tigers (5-2) are in San Diego, where it’s always baseball weather, for three against the Padres (3-6). Rick Porcello makes the start for Detroit, facing Andrew Cashner. Obviously, not much history between these two clubs, but there was one famous series (famous if you’re a Detroit or San Diego fan, anyway) back in 1984. I followed the Tigers’ magical season game in and...

DraftKings – Sitting On My Porcello Thrown

First off: Poop joke. Secondly: next poop joke. Good, now is it out of your system? Well if it ain't, pinch it off we've got to keep dropping these DraftKings posts like they're hot. Alright, alright, we can't get things moving with you so backed up on this topic. Here, have some yogurt. Better? Good! Now I have to ask you to draft a guy who's only $6...

Finally another running man in Detroit

Speed and the Detroit Tigers have pretty much mixed like oil and water since Ty Cobb departed 88 years ago. Detroit hasn't had anybody lead the league in steals since Brian Hunter swiped 74 in 1997. And Ron LeFlore, with 68 steals in 1978, is the franchise's only other leader in that category since 1930. But new starting left fielder Rajai Davis could change that. He should...

Vin on Torii by random_sports One of the qualities about Vin Scully that separates him from every other broadcaster out there — you know, besides his literary allusions, great cadence and pleasant and smooth call — is his storytelling ability. You could give the same background information about a player to 10 different broadcasters, and […]

Game 2014.6: Tigers at Dodgers

4-2, 1st place, .5 games up. Magic number is 155 (I think). I managed to catch the Crawford double right as I went to bed last night. Needless to say I didn’t sleep well. Sanchez v. TBD tonight. Someone please post the lineups. I’m traveling, so the post-game may be a little late. Interesting stat of the day: A Sanchez W today would be the first of the season for any of Verlander...
