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. ...

The Detroit Tigers offense is struggling to say the least, changes need to be made

Special Guest Writer Vito Jerome The Detroit Tigers do not possess an All-Star caliber lineup. And people should’ve realized such would be the case a long time ago. Ian Kinsler has hit all of one home run and now can’t hit for average. Kinsler hit a paltry .231 after the All-Star break in 2014 as a result of his batting average on balls in play dipping in the second half from...

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...

One of the most recent signings this past year was starting pitcher,Shane Greene from the Yankees. He was one of two signings in the off season after the Tigers traded away Drew Smyly and Rick Porcello. The first...

Tigers’ starting pitching woes make losing Max Scherzer more lamentable

On Wednesday, the Detroit Tigers used reliever Alex Wilson as a starting pitcher in a 3-2 win over the Oakland A’s. Thursday night, Detroit started Buck Farmer, freshly called up from Triple-A, to start against the Angels and lost 12-2. This is quite a sobering change for a team that rolled out a rotation boasting three Cy Young Award winners — David Price, Max Scherzer and...

Tigers scratch Ryan, start Wilson against Athletics

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Right-hander Alex Wilson is scheduled to make his first career start for the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday after Kyle Ryan was scratched. Wilson, a right-hander who has worked strictly out of the bullpen in 56 games over two-plus seasons with the Tigers and Red Sox, has never gone longer than 3 2-3 innings.

Alfredo Simon, the scheduled starter, had to leave suddenly to be with his gravely ill father in the Dominican...

The Tigers turn to Anibal Sanchez to stop their first losing streak of the season, and hope to see the old Anibal, or at least not the one from the past two games. Over his last start Sanchez has only managed a...

'Throw-In' Alex Wilson Could Soon Haunt Sox

Alex WilsonAlex Wilson had a pretty good year in 2014. Although he hurled just 28.1 innings in 18 appearances for the Red Sox, he posted a 1.91 ERA—striking out 19 and walking just 5. He delivered a 0.88 WHIP and held opposing hitters to a .198 average. That's why FenwayNation gave him our 2014 "Under The Radar Award". Wilson was viewed as the "throw-in" piece in the deal that...

Biggest Sox Trade Loss Might Be Alex Wilson

(USAToday Sports)It has gone almost completely unnoticed that RHP Alex Wilson was included in the package that netted the Red Sox Rick Porcello.

In fact, FenwayNation awarded Wilson our 2014 "Under The Radar Award". Why? Wilson hurled...
