DETROIT (AP) -- Jose Iglesias singled through a drawn-in infield to drive in the winning run with one out in the ninth inning, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 Friday to improve their major league-best record to 9-1. Nick Castellanos led off the ninth with a sinking liner to right off Zach Duke (1-1) that Melky Cabrera couldn't grab cleanly. Castellanos stretched...

Previewing the Tigers/White Sox Series

We’ve come to expect the offensive production in recent years, but one thing we haven’t been used to seeing from the American League Central-leading Detroit Tigers is a pitching staff that compliments the offensive output. Entering their three game series against the 3-5 White Sox, the 8-1 Tigers are posting a Major League best 1.91 ERA, and have already posted four shutouts...

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton Storm the Photo Booth at John Varvatos Party

According to reports, Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander still has some ways to go in his rehab from a triceps injury before making his season debut. While that sucks for Verlander on the field, his off-field game still remains one of the best. Verlander took to downtown Detroit Thursday night with his girlfriend, Kate Upton, to party at a John Varvatos store opening. There, “The...

Game 2015.9: Tigers at Pirates

It certainly didn’t make much of a splash when the Tigers shipped Robbie Ray off to the Diamondbacks, and in return got Shane Greene from the Yankees (who got Didi Gregorius from Arizona). But if his first two starts are any indication, Shane Greene may turn out to be an absolute steal, not to mention the fact that he is not free agent eligible until 2021 and pulling in all of...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Pick Up Shane Greene

View image | Even though the Detroit Tigers traded away one good, young starter in Rick Porcello this offseason, it seems they landed another solid youngster in Shane Greene, who came over from New York in the three-team Didi Gregorius trade. In 2014, Greene’s rookie year, he started 14 of his 15 appearances for the Yankees, and he struck out over a batter an...

Not going unbeaten at home

I’m fairly comfortable chalking this up as “one of those nights” for the Pirate offense, which was totally shut down by Tigers pitcher Shane Greene. I didn’t know much about Greene coming in, and a brief look at his profile shows a fairly promising young pitcher but nothing totally amazing. He’s off to an amazing start this year, though, and absolutely cruised through 8...

Fact: The Detroit Tigers Own The Cleveland Indians

Reports of the Tigers’ demise were greatly exaggerated

Maybe it was their failure in the postseason against Baltimore last October (they lost seven of their last nine play off games). Maybe it was worries about their injuries and old age. Maybe it was boredom, refusing to pick the same team as always to win it all, but for some reason the sports writers of American (including those for this site) had essentially pronounced the Detroit...

Detroit Tigers off to historically torrid start

For Detroit Tigers fans of a certain age, a fast start to the regular season is nothing new.  In 1984 the Motor City Kitties rocketed out to a 35-5 record through the first 40 games, a feat which has never been duplicated. It is unlikely a team is soon going to duplicate that feat, but this year’s Tigers are certainly looking capable of matching that season’s total of 104 wins...

For a five-year span, the Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers had a pretty fierce rivalry in the AL Central.
