Justin Upton flat-out robbed Jose Abreu

No one needs more help suppressing home runs than Anibal Sanchez. Anibal Sanchez has a problem with dingers. Or perhaps it’s the Tigers who have a problem. Sanchez has handed out home runs like candy over the past year and a half, so his feelings on them are murky at this point. Jose Abreu’s feelings are much clearer.

Justin Upton: Tigers still feel we can win division

The Detroit Tigers are one of a handful of teams who need to decide before the Aug. 1 trade deadline if they want to be buyers or sellers.
