PLAYERS: Miguel Cabrera

Baseball's best hitter is hurting and struggling right now. So what should the Tigers do with Miguel Cabrera?

Arm-chair managing: Prince Fielder and Jim Leyland

The Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers, 1-0, yesterday in a crisp, well-pitched game to keep the Royals' fleeting wildcard hopes alive. They preserved their narrow margin of victory by throwing Prince Fielder out at home plate for the final out of the game. I hate to be one of those second-guessing, arm-chair managers, but what the heck was Fielder doing out there anyway...

Singing hot dog vendor for Tigers fired over very American stance

The Detroit Tigers are streaking towards the playoffs, but they will be doing it without one of their most famous pieces. Charlie Marcuse, better known around Comerica Park as the Singing Hot Dog Man, was fired because he hated on…Read more →

Ex-Tiger outfielder Bubba Trammell charged with aggravated assault

Former Detroit Tigers outfielder Bubba Trammell is facing charges of aggravated assault after he allegedly ran down two police officers after they responded to a domestic violence call at his Knoxville, Tennessee home. Trammell has struggled with depression in the past and that might have something to do with the charges he's facing. This past Saturday, Trammell, 42, who...

Anibal Sanchez Puts On His Ace Hat

Anibal Sanchez could quite possibly be the best pitcher in the major leagues who is never mentioned. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard Sanchez mentioned in the same breath as teammates Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander; much less in the same instance as Felix Hernandez, Clayton Kershaw, and Adam Wainwright. In my opinion, he belongs there. Sanchez’s career has been somewhat...

Game 2013.149: Royals at Tigers

85-63, Magic Number is 10. Gotta hop on a plane, so a few disjointed thoughts. Tigers lose a playoff type game last night in a game where the AL’s best pitching flexed some muscle and completely shut down the Tigers. I wasn’t able to tune in early but did catch the Infante double. I agree with Brookens’ decision to send Fielder there, though I hardly agree that it takes ...

Tigers open final home stand with win over Royals

DETROIT -- Fall is in the air, Comerica Park had another sellout crowd and you can sense the end of the regular season is coming. The Tigers (85-62) moved a little closer to the postseason with their 6-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals (77-70) Friday night. The Tigers kept the Cleveland Indians, who beat the Chicago White Sox earlier in the day, at bay, six games back in the...

Detroit Tigers: is Peralta the missing link?

The Detroit Tigers are keeping the Jhonny Peralta fire lit, and for good reason. Peralta risked exiling himself from the organization the moment he cheated back in the spring of 2012. When he was finally caught and suspended for 50 games just after the trade deadline this year, the Tigers had seemingly already moved on. Jose Iglesias was brought in to play shortstop just before the...

Fielder, Hunter lead Tigers to 6-3 win; magic number to eliminate Indians cut to 10

Prince Fielder and Torii Hunter put up some big numbers to help the Detroit Tigers reduce their magic number to 10. Fielder and Hunter each knocked in three runs Friday night and Justin Verlander stuck out seven in 6 2/3 innings as the Tigers earned a 6-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals. Fielder hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning and Hunter singled home two runs to...

Game 2013.147: Royals at Tigers

84-62, 1st place, magic # goes to 11. (Basically a lock based on the squiggly lines here.) Well friends, just a few weeks after the Tigers found themselves atop the AL (at 24 above .500), the Tigers may now find themselves without home field advantage unless they make the World Series. The BoSox have been on a tear over the past three weeks and are now 30 games above .500, 4 games...

WezBlog: Price for Veras Ends Up Costly

On Friday, the Tigers completed the Jose Veras deal, shipping right-hander David Paulino to the Astros as the player to be named later. Veras was obviously needed, but with the inclusion of Paulino, it yet again becomes a very steep price to pay for the Tigers.

Tigers top Royals, 6-3

DETROIT (AP) -- Prince Fielder homered and drove in three runs, and Justin Verlander pitched effectively into the seventh inning to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 6-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night. Detroit remained six games ahead of second-place Cleveland in the AL Central and dealt the third-place Royals a setback in the postseason race. Kansas City is one...

Royals get final out at plate and hold on for 1-0 victory over Tigers

There’s no telling of course what the next two-plus weeks hold for the Royals in what remains a long-shot quest to reach the postseason for the first time in 28 years. But … if destiny ultimately beckons bookmark Saturday night’s 1-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers which ended when catcher Salvy Perez executed a blind grab on a throw before applying the tag at the plate. ...

Paul Wezner joined the Michigan Insider on WTKA 1050 AM in Ann Arbor to discuss the latest with the Tigers, whether or not they should bring Jhonny Peralta back, and what the team's priorities should be as they move in on the playoffs.
