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...

Game 2015.98: Detroit at Boston

No movement on the trade front, but everything is pointing that way. Price’s agent told MLB Network radio that he’s not optimistic that Price will be in Detroit much longer. If you didn’t see it yet, the Royals (who are 10.5 games ahead of the Tigers, yes 10.5), picked up Johnny Cueto. Not that we were going to catch them, but they are the odds on favorite to win the AL now...

Game 2015.96: Detroit at Boston

Look guys, let’s call it what it is. 2015 is not going to be a championship year and unless the Tigers make moves now, 2016 won’t be either. Ken Rosenthal is reporting today that David Price is unlikely to sign with the Tigers in 2016, and the Cubs are high on the list to sign Price in the off-season. So why not get some young talent in return for moving Baseball’s best pitcher...

Detroit Tigers' J.D. Martinez hits longest home run in Comerica Park history (VIDEO)

J.D. Martinez has definitely made his mark on this Tigers team -- and now he's made his mark on Comerica Park. The Tigers slugger clubbed a monster two-run bomb on Tuesday that landed in a camera well, traveling an estimated 467 feet, according to MLB.com. Check it out the highlight: The homer is the longest in Comerica Park history, one foot further than Miguel Cabrera's 466-foot...

J.D. Martinez hits longest home run in Comerica Park history

YouTube J.D. Martinez provided one of the only (maybe the only) true Tigers highlight during Tuesday’s 11-8 loss to the Mariners.  He hit the longest home run in Comerica Park history.  The Taijuan Walker fastball traveled an estimated at 467 feet into the bushes above the roof of the camera well in straightaway center field.

Watch: J.D. Martinez and Nelson Cruz launch gigantic home runs in Detroit

What’s in the air Tuesday night at Comerica Park? The Tigers’ home yard has been a launching pad, hosting two massive bazooka-shot home runs to deep center field. OK, maybe it’s bad pitching in the air, with two of the more disappointing starting rotations in MLB between the Tigers and Mariners. Seattle’s Taijuan Walker came into Tuesday’s game having served up 16 homers...

Game 2015.93: Mariners at Tigers

It was nice to see a win for a change. Kinsler smashed a bat Sunday then swung a mean bat Monday, with the under-used James McCann providing the rest of the firepower needed. Alfredo Simon wasn’t good, but he wasn’t a disaster (sell high! well, relatively high), and the bullpen was, dare I say, good. After the game Kinsler put in his plea to not give up on the season. Chris Iott...

5 reasons the Detroit Tigers won’t make the playoffs

(Note: This is the first of a two-part series that examines the reasons the Tigers will make the playoffs and the reasons the club won’t) It’s hard to imagine the Detroit Tigers catching the Kansas City Royals in the Central Division. The Royals are just too good. The lineup is dangerous, the defense is good and the bullpen is the best in baseball. Even in rare instances when...

Leadoff single only hit for Tigers in 3-0 loss to Orioles

DETROIT (AP) -- With their ace on the mound and pitching well, what looked like a nice opportunity turned into another setback for the Detroit Tigers. Ian Kinsler led off the bottom of the first with a single, but that was Detroit's only hit in a 3-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night. David Price struck out 12 in seven innings for the Tigers, but ended up with a hard...

Game 2015.90: Orioles at Tigers

Good all around win last night. Sanchez was okay, don’t let the final line fool you. He gave up 10 H+W and benefited from a 1-14 RISP day by the Os. The Tigers only had 4 ABs with RISP, but when you hit 3 HRs, you’re gonna score a lot of runs. Tillman v. Price Tonight.

Martinez hits 26th homer, Tigers beat Orioles 7-3

DETROIT (AP) -- J.D. Martinez made the defensive play of the game, and Jose Iglesias hit the biggest home run. Talk about a role reversal for these two Detroit All-Stars. "A lot of weird stuff happened today," Martinez said. The slugging Martinez made a terrific catch against the wall in right field, and the slick-fielding Iglesias hit a three-run homer to lead the Tigers to a 7...

Game 2015.89: Orioles at Tigers

Well, the All Star break has come and gone, and the Tigers unfortunately find themselves in limbo, as they are not so far out of the race that it’s apparent to everyone that they need to sell, but this team simply isn’t going to compete with Kansas City, or much of the other elite AL teams for that matter. There’s a lot of talk about the next 10 days being crucial, and if they...

Miguel Cabrera greatly missed at this year's All-Star Game

The show must go on, even without Miggy. Miguel Cabrera is missing his 10th All-Star bid due to a calf injury he suffered earlier this month, and there's no doubt he's missed by his peers. And especially by his Tigers teammates. J.D. Martinez and Jose Iglesias are first-time All-Stars this year, and they both wish Miggy could be there with them. "I would have loved to be here with...

Minnesota Twins come back in huge way

During last night’s game between the Detroit Tigers and the Minnesota Twins, things were only going right for Detroit. Until the ninth inning. In what Minnesota is calling a “Twin-credible” victory, the Twins came back from a 6-1 deficit to defeat the Tigers 8-6, capped off by a monster three-run homer from should-be-All-Star, Brian Dozier. Earlier in the game a series of...

How is J.D. Martinez not in the Home Run Derby?

As a matter of full disclosure, I think all the hype and hoopla surrounding the All-Star Game is silly. When I was a kid, things were different. Before interleague play, before every Detroit Tigers game being on TV, before I had cable, before no less than six national TV outlets carrying games (including a 24-hour network owned and operated by Major League Baseball), the All-Star...

The Tigers continue to keep their noses about the surface as they float along treading the .500 line. The did just have a good series though–they took 2-of-3 on the West Coast, and were an extra-inning loss away from a sweep. On top of that they did it without their best player, and are now 3-2 without Cabrera. It’s what good teams do. Are the Tigers a good team? They are supposed...
