Detroit Tigers: Bruce Rondon isn’t going anywhere

I know a lot of you are upset with Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Bruce Rondon. Not only did he get sent home early last season due to effort issues, but he now instigated a brawl in the Venezuelan Winter League. Bruce Rondon has also always had issues with his weight, which haven’t seemed to have gone away. Certainly, Bruce Rondon’s actions aren’t good, but lets make something...

Detroit Tigers: Bruce Rondon’s leash growing shorter

Bruce Rondon hasn’t been much more than a disappointment for the Detroit Tigers over the past several seasons. Rondon bulldozed his way through the minor leagues after joining the Tigers organization at 17 years old. Since joining the Tigers major league roster, he has taken a turn for the worse – a lot worse. 2013 saw him put up decent numbers with a 1-2 record and a 3.45...

Bruce Rondon got into a brawl in the Venezuelan Winter League

Crazy things tend to happen in Winter League baseball. In the Venezuelan Winter League this weekend, Detroit Tigers pitcher Bruce Rondon, playing for Magallanes, got into a brawl with Pirates minor leaguer Jose Osuna, playing for Margarita. It looks like the cause of the brawl was Osuna having an issue with Rondon’s pickoff attempt, which led to some words being exchanged...

VIDEO: Bruce Rondon incites brawl in winter league game in Venezuela

MLive’s Chris Iott described the fiasco: “Rondon, pitching for Navegantes del Magallanes, entered the game to start the seventh inning...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Detroit Tigers Acquire Francisco Rodriguez

The Detroit Tigers went from first to worst in 2015. Whenever that happens, you can usually blame injuries and a bad bullpen. They certainly had their fair share of both as both Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez went down for stretches last season. However, the bullpen was also a considerable factor as well. Dave Dombrowski traded Joakim Soria (currently a free agent) before the...

Detroit Goes Used Closer Shopping Again

It feels like the Tigers have been searching for a closer since Todd Jones retired -- Percival, Valverde, Nathan, Soria.  They prey on dead meat so much, they're more like the Vultures than Tigers. Papelbon recently was heard saying, "I am going to close forever.  Wait, are those Tigers' front office people circling above me?  Crap!"  It's too bad none of the Syrian refugees...

Noah Syndergaard was Aroldis Chapman for one night

That a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball gains velocity as he heads to the bullpen is not a new phenomenon. At this point, it is a strategy. When a pitcher cannot last five innings consistently or fails to develop a necessary off-speed pitch, the pitcher is sent to the bullpen to see if his stuff will “play up” in shorter outings, allowing him to air out the fastball...

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...

Detroit Tigers: Rondon sent home for lack of effort

The trainwreck that is the Detroit Tigers 2015 season become a little bit uglier on Tuesday afternoon as closer Bruce Rondon was sent home for the remainder of the season due to his “effort level” according to manager Brad Ausmus. Rondon has struggled in his return from arm injuries, posting a 5.81 ERA with 4 blown saves. These numbers are a bit puzzling for someone who can throw...

Holland Run Down, Rondon Lollin’

Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement, began yesterday, and Brad Ausmus, the Tigers manager who doesn't believe in a manger, started atoning for his mistakes, by sending the Tigers closer, Bruce Rondon, home due to a lack of effort.  This sends an interesting message.  I'd guess, with a motorized scooter and knee-bypass surgery, Victor Martinez still wouldn't be at 100% effort...

Five Detroit Tigers to blame for a lost season

While watching the Detroit Tigers the other day, my wife, generally oblivious to the game play, score, and corresponding commentary, heard it mentioned that our hometown team had the 2nd worst record in the American League. She questioned that assertion, to which I affirmed. She then reminded me that they’d been to the playoffs several years in a row, a fact I was also painfully...

Dozier and the Twins spoil Verlander’s gem as Tigers fall 8-6

You’d figure a 6-1 lead in the 9th is more than enough run support to lock up a win. Apparently not if you have the Tigers bullpen. With one out in the 9th inning and that 5 run lead, Bruce Rondon and closer Joakim Soria combined for 7 runs given up as Brian Dozier‘s walk-off three run shot gave Minnesota an unbelievable 8-6 comeback win. In fact, Soria didn’t record an out...
