Can the 2016 Detroit Tigers lineup live up to the hype?

The Detroit Tigers lineup is shaping up to be one of the best in baseball heading into the 2016 season. Compared to the start of last year the Tigers lineup isn’t changed all that much. For most of last season the lineup was Anthony Gose, Ian Kinsler, Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, J.D. Martinez, Yoenis Cespedes, Nick Castellanos, James McCann, and Jose Iglesias. This season...

White Sox 'pen loses no-no in 9th, loses game in extras

  Rajai Davis' two-out triple in the 10th gave Detroit a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, one inning after the Tigers lost a combined no-hitter. Anthony Gose drew a two-out walk from Zach Duke (3-6) in the 10th. Davis sliced a 3-1 fastball into the corner in right field and Gose easily beat Trayce Thompson's throw to the plate. Blaine Hardy (5-3) got the...

Perez sends game to extras, but Royals fall 5-4 in 12th

DETROIT -- Dixon Machado's bases-loaded single in the 12th inning lifted the Detroit Tigers to a 5-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night. The Royals took a 4-3 lead in the top of the 12th against Drew VerHagen. However, Anthony Gose led off the bottom of the 12th with a single off Holland, and moved to third one out later on Miguel Cabrera's single. After an intentional...

Game 2015.141: Tigers at Indians

it looked like it was time for this season to quietly fade away, then start something different for next season. It got a little noisier yesterday though, with multiple reports that the decision has already been made to fire Brad Ausmus. He is pre-fired, in other words. Which makes the last few weeks of the season rather awkward. Chris McCosky (Detroit News) tweeted that the planned...

Lonnie Baseball saves defensive runs, Indians in 7-5 win over Tigers

Lonnie “Baseball” Chisenhall had himself a game during the Cleveland Indians 7-5 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. With the win, the Indians moved to 69-70 and within four games of the Texas Rangers for the final AL Wild Card position. Michael Brantley was dubbed the game’s hero by many for his two home runs; including the go-ahead two-run shot in the eighth inning...

Alfredo “Big Pasta” Simon has now earned the “enigmatic” description. Apparently all he does is throw either batting practice, or shutouts. It is easy to find a reason to watch today: Justin Verlander, who continues to impress. Verlander’s 2nd half numbers now sit at at 2.45 ERA, and a stingy 0.930, numbers which would put him in the Cy Young conversation if he had had...

I’m taking the over tonight. I predict Brantley runs wild. Last 2 starts for Simon: 14 earned runs in 9.1 innings. I want Suarez back! Gose isn’t happy with his base running: “my mouth has written checks my butt can’t cash.” +2 for Anthony Gose. -2 for anyone who doesn’t know he is doing anything wrong. Ausmus is getting more and more bold. He says he might sit Victor...

Tigers: Anthony Gose forgets you get three outs in an inning

Anthony Gose forgetting you get three outs in an inning sums up the 2015 Tigers season. Ironically enough though for the Blue Jays, their former center fielder Gose who they traded to the Tigers in the offseason continued to help them in the pennant race. Gose’s brain dump enabled Ryan Goins to score from second base and Josh Donaldson to get a sac fly on the play. Not that Gose...

Game 2015.129: Tigers at Blue Jays

Today Buck Farmer takes his turn at trying to keep the Blue Jays in the yard. This lineup is truly potent, as opposed to the “potent” Tigers offense that Rod Allen is always talking about. The Tigers have leadoff hitters who can’t get on base and a cleanup hitter who can’t hit in runs, but hey, other than that they are fine. When David Price made his last start fort the Tigers...

Matt Boyd returns to Toronto, and takes on his former team, as does Anthony Gose. David Price is there, and not doubt will be renewing acquaintances, but we won’t see him pitching this series. Justin Verlander’s near no-hitter was a tough act to follow, but crafty veteran Randy Wolf did a pretty good job of it. He has now had two good outings, which is probably as much or more...

Sunday Notes: Saber Seminar, Backup Sliders, Gose, more

Jason Bere had an interesting observation about Joe Borowski, who saved 45 games for the Indians in 2007. According to Bere – currently Cleveland’s bullpen coach – Borowski threw a lot of backup sliders. Contrary to what you might think, that was a good thing. “A lot of times when he got a guy to swing and miss, it was with the one that just kind of stayed,” Bere told me...

I didn’t think I’d get to watch the Tigers last night, but thanks to a 2-hour plus rain delay I got to see most of the game, and see a little of everything. The lowlight of the game for me was Iglesias–again–being thrown out at the plate. The Tigers still lead baseball in runners thrown out at the plate, and it looks like they won’t be caught. Meaning they will be caught...
