Ausmus hits shuffle button on Tigers Rotation

Detroit Tigers’ Manager Brad Ausmus announced today that he’s going to use the opportunity of tomorrow’s off day to shuffle the rotation for this weekend’s series when they visit the Kansas City Royals.

Detroit Tigers: time for Brad Ausmus to get a clue

The Detroit Tigers had a magical victory ripped from their grasp last night thanks to the continued failures of closer Joe Nathan. After being shut down in earnest for eight torturous innings, and trailing 2-0 in the 9th, the Tigers managed to sneak two guys on base for Mr. Clutch. And once again JD Martinez delivered. He smashed a Glen Perkins fastball over the right field wall...

Game 2014: 138. Tigers at Indians

Brad Ausmus is, no doubt, good at some things. Others, not so much. One of those others is nicknames: he referred to today’s starting pitcher as “The Lobber.” OK, I’m sorry, very bad nickname for a pitcher. I’m going with “Lobster.” You know I’m right. At any rate, if the Tigers hit like they did last night, it won’t matter much who is pitching. If they don’t...

Detroit Tigers: Brad Ausmus Decision Making Costs Team Win

The Detroit Tigers were in a prime position to tie or take the lead in the 9th inning of yesterday’s game against the New York Yankees. Detroit had runners at first and second with nobody out trailing 1-0, but Brad Ausmus’ risky decision making may have very well ended up costing the Tigers a win. Instead of bunting the runners to 2nd and 3rd which would have meant Detroit could...

Detroit Tigers’ Brad Ausmus May Be Bad Manager Hiding Behind Good Team

(Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons) The Detroit Tigers’ disastrous series against the Cleveland Indians concluded Sunday night and if there is one thing the series yet again showed, it is that Brad Ausmus either isn’t ready or isn’t a good enough manager to help a team contend for a World Series. Mismanagement of the bullpen and the starting pitching is often the hardest thing...

Tigers Notes: Ausmus reflects on first half of season; V-Mart out of lineup

DETROIT -- For Brad Ausmus, his second rookie season is going a lot faster than the first. Ausmus was startled momentarily when asked about reaching the halfway point of his first year as a manager -- the Tigers play game 81 out of 162 Wednesday afternoon.  "This is definitely going quicker than when I was a player," he said. "I can't exactly pinpoint why, but...

Detroit Tigers: Brad Ausmus’ discouraging comments

Leading up to Tuesday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals, the Detroit Tigers had yet to spend one day of the 2014 MLB season without having at least a share of the lead in the AL Central. Now that Kansas City has taken the first three games of this series, the Tigers find themselves trailing the division-leading Royals by a game and a half. However, Detroit’s month...
