Silver lining? Not for Tigers' Jackson

Now you can't judge a suit by its cover, either. Tigers right fielder Austin Jackson proved that Thursday at Comerica Park, where he loudly showed off the unique lining of his suit coat before an afternoon game at Comerica Park. Teammate J.D. Martinez captured the moment on video and posted it on Instagram.   Hopefully for the Tigers, Jackson's bat can live up to all...

Jackson finds a new home in the middle of the batting order

Austin Jackson has gone from setting tables to cleaning tables. The Detroit Tigers' center fielder batted leadoff the first four years of his career, but is hitting either fifth or sixth this season. It's a change that came after he hit eighth in the last three games of the 2013 ALCS to shake an awful slump. That move was born out of desperation, but it was the beginning...

Detroit Tigers: who is most likely to flop?

Last week, I looked at three x-factors for the 2014 Detroit Tigers. Now, it’s time to examine the likely 25-man roster and determine three players that have the biggest potential to flop in 2014. As in the last article I’ll nominate one player from each position group (offense, starting pitching, and bullpen). Caveat: by no means am I saying that these three players will all...

Detroit Tigers: Austin Jackson’s star rises

With Detroit Tigers centerfielder Austin Jackson, it’s all becoming quite clear now just who he is. Sometimes you watch a young player develop and you can’t make heads or tails of what to expect from one year to the next. Jackson was initially such a case. As a rookie he smoked line drives all over the field on his way to a .293 average. He did this even though he struck out...

Detroit Tigers: time to extend Austin Jackson is now

Due to the Detroit Tigers’ spendthrift habits of late on the free agent market it seems as though they are at a crossroads with budding star Austin Jackson. In my opinion, it is time to extend Jackson on a long-term deal before the price tag gets too high. Recent players to get such deals include the Cardinals’ Allen Craig and Chicago’s Chris Sale. As for Jackson, he recently...

Detroit Tigers rumors: Torii Hunter time

Your newest member of the Detroit Tigers is Torii Hunter! Or at least that’s my best guess at this point. Some people who are ‘in the know’ have indicated that Hunter is most likely going to land with the Tigers or the Texas Rangers. Hunter is 37 (turns 38 in July) and will likely get a 2-year contract, wherever he lands, for approximately $10M/year. Hunter says, “It’s...
