Detroit's Dombrowski hoping to upgrade CF, bullpen

DETROIT (AP) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski says he would like to address the team's center-field situation and bullpen after Detroit won its fourth straight AL Central title but was swept out of the playoffs in the division series.

Game 2014.151: Tigers at Twins

Scherzer went from Marvelous Max to Maddening Max in the span of a few batters last night, and a rare BB BB start by Joba Chamberlain opened the door for those pesky Twins to tie the game, 6-6, in the bottom of the 8th. Phil Coke did okay, but the savior last night was Kyle Ryan, who came in and immediately induced an inning ending double play. Three pitches and two bombs later,...

Royals Fall Short of Come Back in Very Crucial Series Opener

Isn’t it funny how one inning can change a baseball game? Let me answer that for you: No, it’s not funny at all. Because we can’t just pretend that the third inning didn’t even happen, we are now down to a one game lead in the American League Central. We’ll just call it “The Inning that Never Ended.” That’s exactly what happened. In the third inning, with the score...

Most Tigers think Kinsler is team's best all-around athlete, but not all

DETROIT -- The Tigers have a lot of excellent baseball players, but which one of them is the best all-around athlete?   It's a question the players have debated themselves.

Game 2014.129: Tigers at Twins

Torii had said last week that he felt there was a lack of energy on the team, but that last night was different: “We had to go out there and come with a little more fight,” Torii Hunter said. “We lost the last two and we lost big. Those guys are taking first and third, stealing bases. So today, we played a little harder, and I could see it.” So instead of facing a disastrous...

Joe Nathan appears to react to booing fans and looks like an idiot

This isn’t Joe Nathan essentially flipping off irrational, booing fans after he pitched a perfect ninth inning; this is Joe Nathan essentially flipping off rightfully booing fans after he escaped yet another ****** ninth inning. Nathan walked the first two batters he faced in a non-save, 4-run-cushioned situation, and the first out he recorded was a seed to left fielder Don Kelly...

Detroit Tigers Trade Rumors: Team Has ‘Kicked Around’ Possibility of Adding a Hitter

The Detroit Tigers’ AL Central lead continues to dwindle and the offense continues to struggle — after putting up five runs early Sunday in Toronto, the Tigers went scoreless for the final 15 innings of that 6-5 loss. So now, with the waiver-trade deadline approaching, GM Dave Dombrowski may be looking for another bat. (“No kidding,” said every Tigers fan at the same time...

Detroit Tigers: Brad Ausmus Decision Making Costs Team Win

The Detroit Tigers were in a prime position to tie or take the lead in the 9th inning of yesterday’s game against the New York Yankees. Detroit had runners at first and second with nobody out trailing 1-0, but Brad Ausmus’ risky decision making may have very well ended up costing the Tigers a win. Instead of bunting the runners to 2nd and 3rd which would have meant Detroit could...

No need to worry about Nick Catellanos. Don Kelly was on deck, in his spot, but that's only because Castellanos was in the bathroom. — James Schmehl (@jamesschmehl) July 4, 2014 It was a brief scare, because it was early in the game, and apparently the team ran out of toilet paper, but Castellanos made it back in time for his at bat.

Game 2.14.68: Royals at Tigers

This afternoon the Detroit Tigers have a chance to do something they have yet to attempt in 2014: pass another team in the standings. They will be doing it without Evan “Charges Pending” Reed, who got the DFA boot in favor of reliever Chad Smith. Smith, from USC, was a bit of a gamble pick in the 2011 draft–after the draft he had Tommy John surgery, then sat out a year. The...
