Seattle Mariners Accomplish Something Last Done By the Montreal Expos

When the Seattle Mariners completed a 3-6-2 triple play on Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays they did something that had not been accomplished in baseball since the Montreal Expos did it back in 2000 (yes, baseball people keep records on everything). What is really cool is how they got it done.Toronto had Kevin Pillar and Ezequiel Carrera on the corners. Ryan Goins hit a grounder...

Indians Lack Fun-Damentally Sound Style of Baseball

It’s no secret that the Indians’ defense is still one of the worst in baseball. A quick perusal of fangraphs.com will give any Indians antagonist enough ammunition to criticize their defense for several weeks. This past week, Owen Watson of fangraphs explained how the Indians defense is so poor that they are wrecking a very fine pitching staff. As of Friday, the Indians were...

Carrera Rejects Outright AAA Assignment and Will Become Free Agent

Ezequiel Carrera has rejected his outright assignment to AAA Toledo after the Tigers designated him for assignment in order to remove him off the 40-man roster. He is allowed to select free agency like he did because another team has previously outrighted him off their 40-man roster and as a rule of the MLB-CBA players are allowed to pursue other opportunities if they so chose....

Game 2014.154: Tigers at Royals

I had to think about it, but I’ve decided I like winning 10-1 better than losing 8-4. Justin “Ricky” Verlander dominated KC without really being dominant. Pretty darn good. He didn’t seem too happy about being lifted from the game rather unnecessarily, or maybe he was just upset with Ezequiel Carrera’s nonchalance in allowing a runner to tag and advance to 3B, but that...

Inciarte making the most of his time

PHOENIX -- When Philadelphia claimed Cleveland outfielder Ezequiel Carrera three days into the 2013 season, Ender Inciarte was the odd man out. He lost his major league roster spot with the Phillies and was returned to Arizona, per Rule 5 stipulations. It was the best thing that could have happened, Inciarte believes. "I knew I wasn't ready to play" in the majors, Inciarte said before...

Detroit Tigers Rumors: Red Sox ‘Favorite’ for Rusney Castillo, Tigers Still in the Chase

The Detroit Tigers could use some help in center field, but it may have to come from someone other than Rusney Castillo. The coveted Cuban defector continues to mull over his MLB prospects, with several teams including the Tigers pursuing him.

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...

Game 2014.110: Tigers at Yankees

On paper, it looks like Max Scherzer kept up the trend of dominant starting pitching, allowing only 2 runs in 7 innings. In reality, three spectacular defensive plays with runners on base kept the game within reach. Ian Kinsler made two fine plays dashing to his left, fielding the ball into right field, spinning, and making a strong throw, once to second to start a double play,...

Yankees One Win Away From Series Split With Mighty Detroit Tigers

Judging from the way the Yankees pitching staff has performed over the past few months, it wasn't hard to believe that they could match the Tigers' Big Three: Max Scherzer, David Price and Justin Verlander.  The question was whether or not they could score enough runs to, if not win, make the games competitive.  After all, their anemic offense has been a broken record for most...
