Drew Storen wants a trade this winter – and he’ll likely get it

Buried in this early autopsy of the 2015 Washington Nationals is an interesting line from Robert Boswell of the Washington Post regarding deposed closer Drew Storen. What you have is demoted, dissatisfied Drew Storen wanting a trade that he will almost certainly get this winter.

This could have been ugly: Bucs ball girl interferes on foul pop

The second-place Pittsburgh Pirates have a tough enough task of trying to chase down the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. The last thing the Bucs need to do is deal with ball girls getting in the way on foul pops. Wednesday night, that's just what left fielder Starling Marte had to avoid during the Pirates' 4-1 victory over the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. With the Bucs up...

Not a bad weekend, huh?

Newsflash: this Pirates team is pretty good. They just completed a road sweep against a first place team despite starting the bottom three of the current rotation. They took the season series from the Mets without ever trailing in any of the six games. They won a game against Matt Harvey with a lineup that looked like a joke, as McCutchen, Kang, and Cervelli all got the day off....

Tigers’ win-now approach seemed to push out Dombrowski

Can something be shocking, yet not a surprise at the same time? That’s generally how I felt when news broke that Detroit Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski had been “released from his contract” on Tuesday. Dombrowski was in the final year of his deal, and while the Tigers not appearing to offer an extension seemed curious, it was entirely possible that...

Detroit Tigers: With Price and Soria gone, the pitching staff is in even more trouble

The Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 9-8 Thursday night, which was a well-needed emotional uplift after trading away ace David Price and closer Joakim Soria just hours before the game. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the Tigers are going to have to win a lot more games with score lines like 9-8 if they want their record to stay respectable this season. With...

Soria Moves from Motown to Pittsburgh

Twelve months after being acquired from Texas – and not saving a beleaguered bullpen – Joakim Soria has departed Detroit. The Tigers have traded the 31-year-old right-hander to the Pirates for 23-year-old shortstop prospect JaCoby Jones. Soria did a decent job in Motown, but with his team’s playoff chances waning, the free-agent-to-be was destined to […]

Do the Detroit Tigers have a closer dilemma?

With Joakim Soria being four for four on save opportunities, it looks like there will be a closer competition in Detroit. Popular vote would say keep Joakim Soria there because he has had two easy saves against Pittsburgh this past week, compared to Nathan who makes the game more interesting when he comes in. I also say keep in Soria because he has closer experience too (most saves...
