Game 2014.17: White Sox at Tigers

With the loss out of the way and no Sale to face, the stage is set for Detroit (9-7) to be Detroit (12-7). Avila. Cabrera. J.D.Martinez. Panas on Porcello. To take our mind off the offense, let’s have a word on defense. And it will be words. I wish I had numbers, but I don’t yet have a handle on a good statistical presentation on defense. It will have to be anecdotal and observational...

Detroit Tigers: 7-5, 1st place AL Central (up .5) The Tigers save the split in the abbreviated two-game series with Cleveland Thursday, winning 7-5.  The game seemed frantic at times–between the two teams there were 19 hits, 5 errors, and 5 stolen bases–but Detroit went home with the W.

So far, Kinsler good fit for Tigers

Ian Kinsler has accomplished plenty in eight major-league seasons. He made three All-Star teams; hit .311 in 34 postseason games for the Texas Rangers; and twice achieved 30-30 status in homers and steals in one season. The new Detroit Tigers second baseman has plenty to be proud of, so I asked him what about his career gives him the most satisfaction. Kinsler, while sitting on his...
