Game 2015.127: Angels at Tigers

I wish I had more time to give JV his full due, and to apologize in part for some things I may have said earlier this year…but I doubt he’s reading. But you know who is…billfer.

JV Reminds Detroit Baseball is Fun

The 2015 Detroit Tigers season will go down as a failure. A constant stream of faint hope drowned by a deluge of disappointment. At a point in the season when most of us are watching games with a detached interest, just passing the time until football season starts or classically “waiting ’til next year” Justin Verlander gave us a reason to care again. What might have been...

J.D. Martinez is a major bright spot in a disappointing season

The Detroit Tigers have not lived up to expectations this season. As of August 25, they are 17 games back of the Royals in the AL Central and 10 games back of the final wildcard spot. But that doesn’t even accurately represent how poor the team has played for the majority of the year. Since their 11-2 start, they’ve gone just 48-62, which is the one of the worst records in the...

If the Mets Had Money

Entering today, the New York Mets lead the NL East by 1.5 games over the Washington Nationals. There’s no telling who will come out on top at the end of this season, but we’re seeing a validation of the Mets sterling rotation. Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, and Noah “Thor” Syndergaard, along with the ageless Bartolo Colon, have brought the Mets back to relevance. And with Zack...

Game 2015.112: Tigers at Royals

If things weren’t bad enough in Tigertown, it looks like there’s a glitch in the feel-good story about building a recreational field for kids at the old Tiger Stadium site. It turns out people have gotten wind that the plan is to replace the grass with…artificial turf. Anyway, tonight Johnny Cueto takes on Gas Can Boyd. That’s mostly a nod to Oil Can, for us old timers, but...

In A Seesaw Game, Tigers End Up On Top

The Sox faced off against the Tigers once again, this time with Wade Miley on the mound.  Miley has been inconsistent for much of the season, however he pitched well in his last start and hoped to build upon that.  Miley pitched well, but not well enough for the win.  The Sox and Tigers went back and forth with the lead until the Tigers went ahead for good in the 7th with a homerun...

Game 2015.106: Royals at Tigers

Well today is the first day of the Al Avila era, wasn’t expecting to be saying that. It is also a chance for Justin Verlander to try for a third straight dominant outing. If he does it will be a pretty exciting sign that we have at least one dependable starter in the rotation. I wasn’t expecting that one guy to be ol’ JV. The Tigers have also announced that LHP Matt Boyd has...

What a J.D. Martinez extension might look like

J.D. Martinez when from getting cut from the worst team in baseball to hitting in the middle of the order for the Detroit Tigers in the matter of two months. Unlike many of the recent flash in the pan players that the Detroit Tigers have found on the scrap heap of late, Martinez has staying power. As a matter of fact, he’s only getting better. With that being said, it is about...

WATCH: Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris make diving a catch

For the Tigers, they really couldn’t have asked for anything better from the prize of their David Price deal in Daniel Norris. In his first start with Detroit, the young lefty Norris went 7.1 innings allowing just one run, four hits, one walk while striking out five in a 6-1 win over the Orioles. There was also this diving catch from Norris in the second off the attempted bunt...

Game 2015.99: Tigers at Devil Rays

Yes, I know they are just the Rays now. But I reject the name change. All the Tiger brass are in Tampa to huddle together and figure out what to do. Hmm, maybe sell, maybe buy, maybe change our names and become captains of some sailing vessel with a really good Jimmy Buffet cover band. The Tigers did obtain a new bullpen arm. Oh wait, it’s Buck Farmer. No, no never mind, Buck is...
