Finding Stats - Some Moneyball Fantasy Options

I'm just as guilty as anyone. Draft Day has arrived, you are prepared and you feel excited about your first few picks. Then come the middle rounds and all the elite talent is gone. You're on the clock and at some point in the draft you will freeze and pick a guy based on his name. A safe well known player across the league. Use these precious picks on pitching, closers or a position...

Fantasy Baseball Team Preview: Detroit Tigers

The Tigers made some changes over the winter, but their fantasy fortunes are still led by a stud hitter and an ace starter ... even if the starter isn't the usual suspect. (Note: When a player's fantasy draft status is mentioned - e.g., "he's an SP4" - the number is based on 12-team mixed leagues.)

2015 TOC top ten: second basemen

The state of second base in baseball right now is interesting. You’ve got some fantastic second basemen (Robinson Cano), some budding young second basemen (Jose Altuve), and some second basemen that are clearly talented, but still have some questions surrounding them (Neil Walker, Jason Kipnis). And that doesn’t even begin to deal with the tier of second baseman that are on the...

Player Profile #96: Ian Kinsler | 2B | DET

Doesn’t it feel like Ian Kinsler’s older than 32? A consistently productive player who’s arguably had just one down season in his nine-year career — 2010, and it wasn’t that down —  I just keep waiting for that fall-off-the-cliff year. Honestly, I don’t really know why I keep waiting for it. All he does each season is top 700 PA, score 100 runs, tally at least 70...

A Look At The New Detroit Tigers Lineup

A year after making major headlines when they traded slugger Prince Fielder to the Texas Rangers for Ian Kinsler, the Detroit Tigers are making noise for a second straight off season.The Tigers have acquired power hitting (not to mention a laser for an arm) outfielder Yoenis Cespedes from the Boston Red Sox. Cespedes will essentially fill the hole that the Tigers were left with...

Behind Ian Kinsler’s solo home run which broke a scoreless tie and David Price’s seven shutout innings, the Tigers clinched the American League Central division Sunday. The win allowed them to avoid a game 163 Monday. A win there would have sent them to a one-game wildcard playoff game against the A’s.

Tigers win fourth straight division title

DETROIT -- Four in a row. With a 3-0 victory Sunday over the Minnesota Twins, the Tigers clinched their fourth-straight AL Central title. In a near-repeat of 1987, the last time they clinched the division at home, the title came with a homer -- Ian Kinsler playing the role of Larry Herndon -- and a spectacular pitching performance -- David Price in 2014, Frank Tanana in 1987.

Ian Kinsler's defensive skills making up for offensive woes

There's no hiding the fact that Ian Kinsler has struggled badly at the plate in the second half of the season. Kinsler knows it, Brad Ausmus knows it, and every one of his teammates knows it. As long as he keeps playing defense the way he has all season, they are OK with it. Kinsler reached the All-Star break hitting .303, and though he doesn't walk much, 26 doubles and 11 homers...

Ian Kinsler Proving to be Key Acquisition for Detroit Tigers

The Detroit Tigers currently enjoy a 1.5 game lead on the Kansas City Royals in the American League Central. With just 13 games remaining, the Tigers odds of winning the division sit at 75 percent, and they are virtually assured of a playoff spot. Though they endured an extended rough patch, this team should be dangerous in the playoffs. The Tigers have plenty of star power....

Kinsler Homer Helps Sweep Tribe Out of Detroit; Tigers 6, Indians 4

Did the Tribe Win Last Night? Nope. After getting out to a 3-1 lead in the top of the sixth inning, poor Indians defense and a two-run homer by Detroit’s Ian Kinsler gave the Tigers a 6-4 victory. It was the second straight night that Shaw allowed a go-ahead, home run to the Tigers. Detroit tacked on two more, necessary insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth in part when C...

Notes: Jose Iglesias for normal offseason activities

DETROIT -- Tigers fans never got to see the dream double-play combination of Ian Kinsler and Jose Iglesias this season. They should get their chance in 2015. After playing spectacular defense late last season and into the playoffs, Iglesias missed the entire 2014 season with shin splints. That meant he never got to play alongside Kinsler, who has played at a Gold-Glove level at second...

Game 2014.146: Royals at Tigers

That last was a mighty fine game. Many good plays, bang-bang plays, on both sides, and fortunately the errors fell KC’s way once again. We can tell what Ian Kinsler eats for breakfast (anyone?), but can anyone leave his feet and then make a throw like he does? Rajai Davis power was the difference in the game, and we know he didn’t really get picked off 1B, either. J.D. Martinez...
