TDSS Roundtable: Guessing the Detroit Tigers’ ALDS Rotation

The Detroit Tigers open the ALDS against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday. How will the starting rotation shape up? And will there be any surprises on the 25-man roster? 1. How should Detroit set its rotation for the ALDS? Max DeMara: The Tigers should start with Max Scherzer, then go to David Price and finally have Justin Verlander. It should be locked in stone, because thatâ...

After narrow division win, Tigers head to playoffs

DETROIT (AP) Max Scherzer stood in Detroit's soaked clubhouse amid another euphoric celebration and spoke for a team that was taking nothing for granted. ''Last December, all the way until now, we've been working as hard as we can to be in this position,'' Scherzer said after the Tigers wrapped up their fourth straight AL Central title on the regular season...

Why the Detroit Tigers will win in it all

That’s right, the Detroit Tigers are going to blow right through the Baltimore Orioles in the ALDS. But that might not be the reason that I get heckled for writing this article. They won’t stop there. They won’t stop in the ALCS either. This team is going to win it all, bringing Detroit its first World Series title since 1984. So go ahead, break out the typical lines – ââ...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Sep 25

Ah, the last shortened slate of the 2014 season! Max Scherzer is the clear ace of the day and should get the win against Trevor May and the Twins (48.3 W% is pretty high). As for the rest, let’s turn to the rankings: On a weak day of pitching, Yusmeiro Petit grabs high marks in his start against the Giants. I like Petit in this matchup, but his high ranking is fueled by a Steamer...

Tigers win appeal on wild play, top Royals to boost AL Central lead

Scherzer and the Tigers blow 4-run lead but end up routing Tribe 11-4 in extra innings

It wasn’t pretty but we’ll take it which is pretty much the only way you could sum up the Tigers’ 11-4 extra innings win over the Indians Thursday night to wrap up a 4-game series in Cleveland. 11 runs though? What’s not to like about that? Nothing really. The Tigers were able to pour it onto young Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer early who had trouble finding the strike zone...

Scherzer stops bleeding for Tigers

DETROIT -- The better Max Scherzer pitches this season, the more money he's going to make in the winter. Right now, no one at Comerica Park is worried about that. With the Tigers looking at a five-game losing streak and the unthinkable possibility of letting another team back into the AL Central race, Scherzer did exactly what an ace is supposed to do. He pitched seven innings...

Indians look to take down Scherzer

Fresh off earning the win in this week's All-Star game, Max Scherzer is ready to continue his recent dominance for the Detroit Tigers.

Detroit Tigers: two areas of major concern

The Detroit Tigers are in first place by 5 full games in what has once again turned out to be a mediocre AL Central. Their 28-19 record and .596 winning percentages are stellar. Only the Oakland A’s have a better winning % in the AL at .608. Yet once again, Tigers fans far and wide are left to wonder and some have resorted to their annual panic regarding their favorite boys of...

Max Scherzer says Sports Illustrated 'lied to and misled' him

Max Scherzer is on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated, but the reigning American League Cy Young winner is not happy the magazine chose to focus on his contract dispute with the Detroit Tigers. In March, the Tigers broke off negotiation with Scherzer after he rejected a contract extension offer that reportedly was for $144 million over six years. SI's cover features...
