Dave Dombrowski, Brad Ausmus Keep Setting Tigers’ Bullpen up to Fail

The Tigers led by three, with two outs in the bottom of the eighth, when things unraveled Wednesday night. Joba Chamberlain gave up a single, then another (a line shot Nick Castellanos said he should have caught), followed by a game-tying home run. Inexplicably, Chamberlain stayed out for three more batters. All three singled, driving home the go-ahead run in what became a 7-6 Detroit...

Competition in Tigers' bullpen down to one spot

LAKELAND, Fla. -- When the Tigers signed Joba Chamberlain earlier this week, it served to eliminate some of the questions surrounding the bullpen. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus made it clear that the competition is down to one spot, barring injury or something else odd happening. "There's not a lot of spots. Some of this depends on (Bruce) Rondon's health. We've got Joe (Nathan), Rondon...

Detroit Tigers: Tigers bring back Joba Chamberlain

The Detroit Tigers brought in a familiar face, which can be hard to recognize if you look back to his days with the New York Yankees, hence the big beard he has. According to reports, the Detroit Tigers signed Joba Chamberlain to a one-year contract worth $1 million, a year after signing him to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million. At first, a little hesitation crossed my mind when...

Re-Signing Joba Reeks Of Desperation

Joba Chamberlain   The Detroit Tigers added another arm to the bullpen mix today by re-signing Joba Chamberlain to a 1-year, $1 million dollar deal, plus incentives. Instead of inspiring joy in the hearts of Tigers fans, this move should inspire panic. The Tigers bullpen was bad in 2014 and likely won’t be much better in 2015. There have been several moves made to “improve”...

Detroit Tigers: Joba Chamberlain Can Help Again in 2015

It is no secret that the Detroit Tigers bullpen was the most glaring weakness of a team that was supposed to contend for a World Series. One of the few successes, however, was Joba Chamberlain. Chamberlain is not close to being one of the top relievers in baseball. He is good enough though that he would be able to help a team out, especially one looking to make a deep playoff run...

Could Joba Chamberlain be a fit for the Indians bullpen?

Last week, rumors circulated that the Indians were still interested in adding one more legitimate late-inning reliever to their bullpen. The options are winding down, so one particular name caught my eye over the weekend. ESPN’s Jim Bowden — yes, that same Jim Bowden who imploded during the trade deadline season — wrote an article on Friday about the best fits for the 10 remaining...

Detroit Tigers rumors: Jason Grilli edition

I know I may sound like a broken record since I am always talking about the Detroit Tigers signing relief pitchers in the offseason, but that is their biggest need. The Tigers had one of the worst bullpens in the game last season, even with big splash names like Joba Chamberlain and Joe Nathan signed to carry the load. Now while Chamberlain is a free agent, Nathan is not and reports...

Detroit Tigers: Dombrowski is playing bullpen roulette

Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski has been tremendous in his time at the helm of this storied franchise.
