Notes: Table tennis tournament underway at Tigers' spring training

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Let the games begin. Last year the Tigers competed in a team basketball shooting competition. This year it's every man for himself in the table tennis tournament. The brackets have been hung in the clubhouse for all to see. Unfortunately for manager Brad Ausmus, he didn't last long. "I lost to Manny Pina," Ausmus said. "He beat me fair and square, 21-14." Someone...

Competition in Tigers' bullpen down to one spot

LAKELAND, Fla. -- When the Tigers signed Joba Chamberlain earlier this week, it served to eliminate some of the questions surrounding the bullpen. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus made it clear that the competition is down to one spot, barring injury or something else odd happening. "There's not a lot of spots. Some of this depends on (Bruce) Rondon's health. We've got Joe (Nathan), Rondon...

Brad Ausmus joins Twitter to stir up things, feud with Taylor Swift

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports A good buddy texted me Tuesday night, “@BradAusmus07, legit?”  At the time, I thought no way. My response was, “I highly doubt it.”  There’s no reason for a Major League manager to have a Twitter account.  Brad Ausmus is too smart for Twitter, with the Dartmouth education that’s blasted all over Tiger broadcasts. No way. Well, way....

Detroit Tigers: is Brad Ausmus the right guy?

Brad Ausmus will be entering his 2nd year of managing this spring. Not just managing the Detroit Tigers, but managing in general. He did lead Team Israel in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, which was something, but not much, and certainly nothing like guiding a team of superstars annually contending for World Series glory. Chances are you have a strong stance on Ausmus’ performance...

It’s World Series or bust for the Detroit Tigers in 2015

The task is very straightforward for manager Brad Ausmus and the 2015 Detroit Tigers team: Bring a championship to the Motor City, or else. Yoenis Cespedes was acquired by the Tigers who in turn shipped Rick Porcello to Boston last Thursday. Cespedes is a flashy, attention grabbing athlete – equipped with a flame spitting Lamborghini Aventador – who is able to put more fans in...

Detroit Tigers: GM Dave Dombrowski’s slump proving costly

Could the incredible run of dominance from Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski be coming to a close, or at least be mired in a rare, and deep, slump? Important note that you will probably forget by the time you’re done reading this: I still think Dave Dombrowski is a tremendous GM. I believe that Brad Ausmus made his fair share of mistakes too. This article is merely...

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...

Tigers manager makes a terrible, terrible joke

Ausmus was asked how he deals with the losing when he goes home: "I beat my wife." Obviously was joking and he later apologized. — George Sipple (@GeorgeSipple) June 18, 2014 Ausmus: "I didn't want to make light of battered women. I apologize for that if it offended anyone." — George Sipple (@GeorgeSipple) June 18, 2014

Brad Ausmus' memorable Father's Day story

Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, the father of two daughters, was asked for a Father's Day story ahead of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins. "I remember the last time I played catch with my dad," Ausmus said. "I broke his thumb and he never played catch with me again." When asked how old he was at the time, Ausmus said he was playing in Little League. So, just how hard...
