The simple, two-tone appearance of dark blue and white creates a clean, pure look that we’d like to think is closely related to our nation’s pastime.

Ian Kinsler, Tigers edge Indians in sloppy afternoon game at Comerica Park

WHAT HAPPENED: Ian Kinsler hit a three-run home run in the Tigers' four-run fourth inning and finished with four RBIs as the Tigers edged the Indians in a sloppy, error-filled game to split their abridged two-game series.

One of the greatest collisions of baseball and pop culture occurred when Keith Hernandez appeared on Seinfeld in 1992.

Unfortunately, the 39-year-old hasn’t lived up to expectations and earlier this week went public with what he thinks the problem is.  Dead arm.

Detroit Tigers: should Drew Smyly stay in the pen?

First off, it is not panic time for the Detroit Tigers. They are 5-2 atop the AL Central and have three winnable games against the Padres this weekend. The pretty record however, does mask some cause for concern. And to absolutely nobody’s surprise, chief among them is the bullpen.

Detroit Tigers: Phil Coke’s gotta go

For the Detroit Tigers, in a year of roster transition, it is paramount to have players on the roster that are of a ‘winning’ caliber. This sounds so obvious, yet somehow Phil Coke has masterfully eluded being cut from the Tigers for years. It’s actually somewhat hard to believe that this is Coke’s 5th season with the team. And in those five years he has had exactly one significant...
