New York Yankees: should they look to reunite with Joba Chamberlain?

Early Friday afternoon, various baseball sources reported that the Detroit Tigers gave up on 2014 free agent signing Joba Chamberlain, as they designated him for assignment. Although the Tigers looked to Chamberlain to help solidify the back end of their bullpen, he failed at doing so – hence the move. In the 2015 season, Chamberlain had an unsatisfactory 4.09 earned run average...

The Tigers DFA reliever Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzelanny

Apparently the Tigers DO have a line that can’t be crossed when it comes to relievers costing them games. Friday, Detroit designated for assignment right-handed pitcher Joba Chamberlain clearing some space on the 40-man roster. It’s been a struggle for the veteran Chamberlain who has just 15 K’s in 22 innings of relief including a 4.09 ERA and 1.68 WHIP. Adding insult to injury...

Detroit Tigers: Dombrowski is playing bullpen roulette

Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski has been tremendous in his time at the helm of this storied franchise. He’s pulled countless trades to help shape a perennial playoff contender all the while dumping ‘can’t miss’ prospects that have by and large…well, missed. Sometimes the world of sports has a cruel way of preventing teams that seemed to have it all from winning the ultimate...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: 4 ideal bullpen targets

The rumor mill is already swirling around the Detroit Tigers and what they may do prior to the July 31st trade deadline. One thing is nearly certain – they will add at least one bullpen piece, maybe two. After all, do you see a 7-man pen that includes Pat McCoy, Blaine Hardy (who I actually really like), Chad Smith (intriguing), Phil Coke and Al Alburquerque powering the Tigers...
