2014: The 1st Inning (10-8)

While this is partly inspired by the old Sam Hoff season-as-innings feature, I’m not going to go into statistics too much, least of all cumulative team stats. No, I’m going to recap the games, because the games are what happened. (You might be surprised at how clearly you remember some of them.) I am, in fact, going to avoid too much summarizing of the “innings” in general...

With Iglesias out for 2014, what will the Tigers do?

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers knew this scenario was likely, that shortstop Jose Iglesias wouldn't return for the 2014 season. Team president and general manager Dave Dombrowski confirmed Wednesday that it's probable Iglesias will sit out the season because of stress fractures in his shins. "We do not plan on having Iglesias back with us this year," Dombrowski told the Detroit News...

Game 2014.17: White Sox at Tigers

With the loss out of the way and no Sale to face, the stage is set for Detroit (9-7) to be Detroit (12-7). Avila. Cabrera. J.D.Martinez. Panas on Porcello. To take our mind off the offense, let’s have a word on defense. And it will be words. I wish I had numbers, but I don’t yet have a handle on a good statistical presentation on defense. It will have to be anecdotal and observational...

Tigers release Alex Gonzalez, call up Danny Worth

DETROIT -- Dave Dombrowski hasn't made two many bad trades in his decade as Tigers president.   He seems to have missed on one this spring, though. Less than a month after acquiring 37-year-old shortstop Alex Gonzalez from the Baltimore Orioles for Steve Lombardozzi, the Tigers released him on Sunday. After a walk-off hit on Opening Day, Gonzalez slumped to a .167 average with only...

Game 2014.15: LAA at Det

Happy Easter everyone. Hopefully you’re spending the day relaxing with family (or without – which may be the shorter route to relax). Porcello takes on Hector Santiago in the actual rubber match of the series. This is a rematch of a late July game last summer when Santiago was in a White Sox uniform. The Tigers took advantage of 5 BBs in 6 innings to score 6 runs (3 earned)...

Game 2014.12: Postgame – Indians 5, Tigers 7

Detroit Tigers: 7-5, 1st place AL Central (up .5) The Tigers save the split in the abbreviated two-game series with Cleveland Thursday, winning 7-5.  The game seemed frantic at times–between the two teams there were 19 hits, 5 errors, and 5 stolen bases–but Detroit went home with the W. Thumbs down: Alex Gonzalez. His bat continues to wither (.167) and his arm was errant. Justin...

Marlins focused on trying to keep players at full strength

Ask any team its expectation entering a season and discover it hinges on one overlapping theme: health. Atlanta has already lost two members of its rotation to Tommy John surgery. Arizona's Patrick Corbin will also miss games in 2014. Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias' shins led the Tigers to trade for 37-year-old Alex Gonzalez. "As we've seen, stuff like that happens every year,"...

Tigers notes: Andrew Romine in Friday's lineup

DETROIT -- How much will Andrew Romine play for the Detroit Tigers? That will depend not only on how well he hits, but if he ends up showing more defensively than Alex Gonzalez. Detroit acquired the 28-year-old switch-hitter from the Los Angeles Angels after starting shortstop Jose Iglesias was shelved with shin stress fractures. The Tigers also picked up Gonzalez, 37, from the Baltimore...

Video: Ian Kinsler’s Walk-off Single Pushes Detroit Tigers to 2-0

Two games, two walk-off wins. Not a bad way to start the season for the Detroit Tigers. About 48 hours after Alex Gonzalez sent an Opening Day crowd home happy with a game-winning hit in the ninth inning, new second baseman Ian Kinsler matched the feat. Kinsler’s two-out single to the gap brought home Austin Jackson to hand the Tigers a 2-1 victory in 10 innings over the Kansas...

Postgame 1: Tigers 4, Royals 3

POST OF THE GAME: (You do need to step it up, though, guys and gals. Regular season now. Spring training is over.) Started off with great Opening Day enthusiasm. 90 minutes later I was in a bad mood, and the Tigers hadn’t even relinquished the lead yet. It wasn’t the game. It was the inability to watch it. Don’t know if it was the network, my ISP, or mlb.tv itself, but after...

Video: Alex Gonzalez Delivers Walk-off Hit on Opening Day

Everyone who predicted Alex Gonzalez would be the Detroit Tigers’ hero on Opening Day, please take one step forward ……. Everyone who took a step forward is a liar. The Tigers’ new shortstop, who was booed after an error in a sloppy fourth inning, tied the game against the Kansas City Royals with a two-out triple in the seventh. He then won it on a walk-off, line drive single...

Stop-gap shortstop Gonzalez comes up big in Tigers debut

DETROIT -- Not a bad first impression, was it? Hitting a walk-off single two innings after drilling a game-tying triple was quite a Detroit Tigers debut for Alex Gonzalez, the replacement shortstop who sparked a 4-3 Opening Day victory over the Kansas City Royals on Monday. And to think he'd been booed earlier in the game for a fielding error, which Tigers closer and winning pitcher...

Put down the sharp objects, Royals fans -- we've got 161 more of these to go

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- You're hotter than a ghost pepper. We get that. But put down the sharp stuff, take two steps back from the medicine cabinet and consider this: In Chiefs terms, we're pretty much five minutes in. As in, five minutes into Week 1 of the NFL season. One down, 161 to go. That's 0.6 percent of the slate. Or, if you like, roughly a third of a quarter of a football game...

Trading for the 37-year-old infielder was a head-scratching move for Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski. Yes, the team needed a shortstop following the likely season-ending stress fractures...

What a spectacular Opening Day for the Detroit Tigers that was eventually won 4-3 in walk-off fashion by the newest Tiger, Alex Gonzalez.
