Game 2014.36: Tigers at Orioles

Early day game, Verlander vs. Gausman, highly recommended. Don’t bring brooms; 9 bats will do.  Enjoy it while it lasts… all season. We seem to be coming to life here lately. A little more chatter, a few more voices. I like it. You know, if you guys ever look at the, um, “stuff” I write and think to yourselves, “I could do that,” well, you’re right. I’m not sayin’...

Brown, Howard & Young Power Phils to 7-3 Victory.

Final: Phillies 7, Marlins 3. WP: Tyler Cloyd (1-0, 2.70 ERA) LP: Duane Below (0-1, 27.00 ERA) Well, there was hardly anything to complain about tonight for the pessimistic Phillies fans that have been surfacing as of late.  Everything went as plan, well almost as Chase Utley was scratched with right side discomfort.  Tyler Cloyd threw well enough for his first win of the season...

How time flies

The Detroit Tigers are 8-7 in Grapefruit League play as of this writing and are having a rather good spring overall, statistically speaking. A few injuries and a few WBC excused absences are the only flies in the ointment at this point. We’re getting to the point where Spring Training starts to get interesting, or as interesting as it can get for a team that came in with the starting...

Game 2012.117: Tigers at Twins

Detroit Tigers, 61-55, 2nd place, 2 back. Well, as expected the Tigers couldn’t manage much against Cy Deduno.  Deduno’s flaw is that he can’t find the strike zone, but against Detroit that is not a flaw, but a feature. I wish we had been keeping a tally of how many times in the pre-game we have noted a pitcher with control problems, only to watch the Tiger hitters struggle...

Detroit Tigers, 43-42, 4 1/2 games behind Chicago. Today the Tigers try to do something they have yet to do this season:  win 5 in a row.  And they will need it to keep pace in what has suddenly become the hot division in baseball.  Over the last 10 games, the White Sox are 8-2, the Indians are 7-3, and the Tigers are 7-3. The Tigers send out Mysterious Max Scherzer, who has been...

39-41, 3rd place 3.5 games back. The Tigers are now 0-8 in get back to .500 games since mid-May. Hopefully they’ll have an opportunity to break that streak tomorrow. A sore hamstring has pushed Scherzer back to Sunday (and gives JV a leg up on the K king race), so Duane Below gets his first start of the season today. Below hasn’t pitched more than 2 2/3 since April, so Jimmy...

2012 Fantasy Baseball Two Start Pitchers, Week 6

Fantasy baseball is a fickle beast. It will lure you in with chocolates and fine smelling perfume. Then leave you heartbroken, mad as hell and unable to watch regular baseball. Twelve after 20 is becoming the year of the Aflac for closers. It is just not safe to be a ninth inning pitcher. It’s like someone is hunting them down one by one, and systematically destroying everyone’s...

Top Five Waiver Wire Relief Pitchers

Relief pitchers are easily the most disposable of all the positions. It used to be that saves were the only category where you needed relief pitchers. With each team employing only one closer, roster stability was pretty much guaranteed for fantasy owners. In a ten team league you could count on each team employing three closers and that was that. Now that holds are...

Rainout helps Tigers' overworked bullpen

A rainout didn't do Duane Below any favors, but it sure shored up the Detroit Tigers' bullpen. The washout of Monday night's Kansas City-Detroit game meant manager Jim Leyland could skip Below's scheduled emergency start and return him to the bullpen. Rick Porcello will start Tuesday as scheduled, with Justin Verlander going Wednesday. Detroit has a day off Thursday...

Game 2012.23: Royals at Tigers

11-11, tied for 2nd with Chicago, 1 game behind Cleveland. One of the things going right for the Tigers so far this season had been the starting pitching, which has kept the team in games even as it has been unable to produce runs. Over the last 10 games, that has all changed, with the starters going 2-6 with a 6.65 ERA.  Bad Max Scherzer was the latest victim, giving up 3 runs...
