Detroit Tigers: projecting the 7-man Opening Day bullpen

Earlier this week we took a look at the starting rotation that the Detroit Tigers will roll out this year. Click here if you missed it. Today, the bullpen goes under the microscope. During his 14-year run as General Manager of the Tigers, Dave Dombrowski’s kryptonite was clearly the pen. Favoring big-armed starting pitchers and a slugging offense instead, DD often left the Tigers...

Closer Report, Week 25: Lazy and Jobless

Late season injuries and minor league call-ups are one thing.   Just not doing your job is an utter disgrace.  Bruce Rondon was sent home, literally, because of lack of effort.  Holy stereotypes.  Because getting out of bed, traveling first class and then having to pitch one whole inning a game in the oft-chance that your team may be winning.  Yeah, that sounds impossible to...

VIDEO: The best squirrel won Thursday’s Royals-Tigers game

mlb.com This mighty mighty squirrel took home the MVP from the Tigers 8-6 win over the Royals on Thursday.  It wasn’t Alex Wilson who closed it out for the Tigs in the ninth inning. It wasn’t Ian Kinsler who hit the walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth. It wasn’t even Victor Martinez who hit two home runs himself and knocked in five RBIs. Rajai Davis was quoted as...

Mets Reportedly Acquire Cespedes

When the Tigers traded Rick Porcello to the Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes in December, they exchanged one player going into the final year of his contract for another (Detroit also got reliever Alex Wilson in the deal). Boston subsequently inked Porcello to a four-year extension worth $82.5 million. Detroit went in another direction, opting […]

Detroit Tigers: Midseason grades

The halfway mark of the 2015 MLB season is upon us, giving us a perfect time to look back and grade out how well, or poorly, the first half off the season has gone for our favorite teams. For the Detroit Tigers, it has been a year that started with glimpses of promising play, but followed mostly with inconsistency and frustration. After 82 games, the Tigers’ record stands at 42...

Opinion: Verlander needs to earn his way back into the rotation.

Most Tiger fans have been VERY disappointed in the return of Justin Verlander. Most people feels like he’s not totally healthy or just out of it. To the Detroit fan base, we call this the “Dontrelle Willis syndrome”. But who knows whats really going on with Justin Verlander. But what I can say is that, its time to shake things up, before its gets to out of control. Could Verlander...

Game 2015.77: Pirates at Tigers

Last night’s loss is on the O, not the pen, or even Gorzelanny. Alex Wilson was at 50+ pitches and Gorzelanny was the last guy in the pen. Ausmus didn’t have any other options. A hit with a RISP would have been nice. 3-15 usually isn’t going to get the job done; unless of course you are Pittsburgh and get a W hitting 2-16 w RISP. Baseball is a funny game.

Gritty performances not enough to lift Tigers over White Sox

DETROIT -- There were some gritty performances by the Tigers Tuesday night, but just not enough for a victory. Justin Verlander, in his third start of the season, struggled mightily in the early going but found a way to give the Tigers some innings and a chance to win the game. J.D. Martinez hit a game-tying two-run home run in the eighth, his 20th of the season and 11th in the month...

Miscommunication keeps Price from returning to game

DETROIT -- As it turned out, it was just a miscommunication, nothing else. When the between-innings clock expired, all the Tigers were in position except for one -- the pitcher. Starter David Price had allowed the Chicago White Sox four runs on six hits through six innings, but he had only thrown 99 pitches, so there was some question as to whether he was remaining in the game. ...

Game 2015.57: Tigers at White Sox

I was thrilled last night when Ausmus came out to get Joba “8th Inning” Chamberlain to go situational for the next batter, and then Soria for a 4 pitch out. If you’re gonna lose, it’s okay to lose that way. Ausmus was managing. Soria subsequently gave up a 2 out HR, and then a combo of Cabrera poor fielding (which doesn’t happen very often) and Alex Wilson poor pitching...
