One Man’s Trash: A-Jax Attacks

It's nice to feel good about a call now and then. This week's most added player was Austin Jackson (+42%). He was one of the first players in this column to get the "treasure" label back in early June when he was one of the most dropped. Back then I said, "It looks a little bleak now, but I still think Jackson gets to double digit homers and 20 steals by the...

Detroit Tigers Rumors: Jose Iglesias Trade Possible?

The Detroit Tigers are rumored to be thinking about dealing shortstop Jose Iglesias due to their excitement regarding Eugenio Suarez’s play, according to Nick Carafrdo of the Boston Globe.

VIDEO: Joyce ejects Ausmus after instant replay… But what is the rule?

During last night’s Tigers 4-0 loss to the Angels, manager Brad Ausmus was ejected in the third inning by every Tigers fan favorite umpire Jim Joyce. The reason for Ausmus’ second career ejection as a manager was for continuing to argue a call that was apparently supported by instant replay and given a final rule upon. The play in question was Matt Shoemaker’s pick-off of Eugenio...

Does Soria deal mean the Detroit Tigers are done?

We waited, and Dave Dombrowski delivered. We questioned, and Double D answered. We wanted, he got.

The move comes as a result of a bullpen that has struggled mightily, boasting a scary 4.37 ERA. Throw...

How much does it cost to create a single run?

What is one run worth?

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: a philosophical debate

So far, the Detroit Tigers have yet to pull the trigger on an apparently inevitable trade deadline move to shore up their bullpen. They have inquired on guys such as Joakim Soria, Joaquin Benoit, Neal Cotts, Jonathan Papelbon, Antonio Bastardo, and surely many others that we don’t know about.
