Why The Tigers Should Sell

The Detroit Tigers are 4 games under .500, and could be 5 by the time this is published. The Tigers are still within 5 games of a playoff spot and have had a successful run from 2011-2014. Now it’s probably their time to sell. The Royals seem to have the division in hand, and they’re sacrificing their future to go all in for a 2015 World Series. They traded 5 really good prospects...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: sell now, or else…

Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski has had a tremendous run of success in the Motor City. Nobody can argue that. He maneuvered his roster in such a way that the Tigers appeared in two World Series’ and are now in the final stages of watching an impressive four year playoff streak come crashing down. Three things are very clear to me just two days before the trade deadline...

This David Price-Evan Longoria exchange is the only good thing from Tuesday’s game

@Cut4 The Tigers got their doors blown off (again) Tuesday night.  11-1 losses never have many highlights and this was no different.  The lone (as in only) somewhat entertaining point Tuesday was this cute little exchange between former teammates David Price and Evan Longoria. Longo hit a dribbler down the first base line that Price fielded and went to tag/hug Longoria.  The...

Game 2015.99: Tigers at Devil Rays

Yes, I know they are just the Rays now. But I reject the name change. All the Tiger brass are in Tampa to huddle together and figure out what to do. Hmm, maybe sell, maybe buy, maybe change our names and become captains of some sailing vessel with a really good Jimmy Buffet cover band. The Tigers did obtain a new bullpen arm. Oh wait, it’s Buck Farmer. No, no never mind, Buck is...

Game 2015.98: Detroit at Boston

No movement on the trade front, but everything is pointing that way. Price’s agent told MLB Network radio that he’s not optimistic that Price will be in Detroit much longer. If you didn’t see it yet, the Royals (who are 10.5 games ahead of the Tigers, yes 10.5), picked up Johnny Cueto. Not that we were going to catch them, but they are the odds on favorite to win the AL now...
