Game 109: Scherzer v....
It’s like forgetting the words to your favorite song. You can’t believe it. You were always singing along. (So imagine what this could have been like without 6 games against inferior NL West opponents.)
So the Detroit Tigers are now:
We end the free agent primer series with a look at possibly the most overpaid market in baseball today – relief pitchers. A top-tier reliever can make more money than a back-end starter, despite 70 innings a year being considered “a heavy workload”. This winter will be no exception, as there are some relievers out there that seem like they’re going to be getting a lot of...
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...
The Tigers dropped game two of their ALDS match up against the Orioles 7-6 as the bullpen had another 8th inning meltdown leading Detroit to the brink of elimination as the series shifts back to the Motor City for game three Sunday. Friday’s loss however was a little harder to swallow as the Tigers quickly saw a 6-3 lead turn into a 7-6 hole thanks in part to Joba Chamberlain and...
To start off a four-game day of baseball, the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers played in Game Two of the ALDS, with the Orioles leading 1-0. On the mound: Wei-Yin Chen for Baltimore, and Justin Verlander for Detroit. Nick Markakis put Baltimore up 2-0 in the third inning with a two-run shot to right field. But, Detroit came right back to take a 5-2 lead by dropping a five...
Apologies to Torii Hunter, but last night looked like Septaugust baseball.
Kyle Lobstein continues to be a very promising rookie: he made one mistake, but rebounded with composure and pitched 7 strong innings, after which Joba Chamberlain pitched a good 8th, and Soria came on looking like a closer in the 9th. Unfortunately, rookie Chris “Cy” Bassitt hounded the Tiger bats into...
Scherzer went from Marvelous Max to Maddening Max in the span of a few batters last night, and a rare BB BB start by Joba Chamberlain opened the door for those pesky Twins to tie the game, 6-6, in the bottom of the 8th. Phil Coke did okay, but the savior last night was Kyle Ryan, who came in and immediately induced an inning ending double play.
Three pitches and two bombs later,...
Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski has been tremendous in his time at the helm of this storied franchise. He’s pulled countless trades to help shape a perennial playoff contender all the while dumping ‘can’t miss’ prospects that have by and large…well, missed.
Sometimes the world of sports has a cruel way of preventing teams that seemed to have it all from winning the ultimate...
Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera took part in the ice bucket challenge Wednesday with the help of Nebraska’s very own Grizzly Adams Joba Chamberlain.
Now although you can’t really understand what Miggy is saying at the beginning of the video other than possibly nominating some other gringos’ for the challenge, the reining AL MVP does give us a little dance at the end.
Joba Chamberlain, J.D. Martinez and Nick Castellanos have teamed up for some charitable work in the last couple days. Chamberlain got doused Wednesday night as part of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and he and Castellanos then were happy to dump a Gatorade cooler full of ice water over FOX Sports Detroit's Shannon Hogan later that evening.
On Thursday, it was Martinez's turn to get...
Joba Chamberlain, former Yankee and now closer/set-up man for the Tigers, was thrilled to be able to step up to the mound at Yankee Stadium for the first time as a visitor this week. The second time wasn’t quite as fun.
With two outs in the tenth inning, he threw a mid-90′s fastball inside with two outs in the tenth and struck a batter.
It wouldn’t have been a big deal if...
Joba Chamberlain playfully stuck his tongue out at his former teammate Derek Jeter during Tuesday night’s game between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees. In hindsight, Chamberlain probably wishes he didn’t do that. Why? Because now he looks bad. A couple of pitches after Chamberlain stuck his tongue out at Jeter, he ran a […]
The cave-dwelling Joba Chamberlain returned to Yankee Stadium and proceeded to plunk Derek Jeter in the 10th inning of the Tigers 4-3 win on Tuesday night. The move, obviously not well received by the New York crowd, didn’t appear intentional despite an earlier Torii Hunter HBP.
However, video shows the former Yankee sticking his tongue out like a bitter 5-year-old man child prior...
While the two things apparently were completely unrelated, an interesting confluence of incidents occurred during the 10th inning of Tuesday’s tilt between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees when former Bronx Bomber Joba Chamberlain had some fun with Derek Jeter when the reliever and the Captain exchanged pleasantries prior to an at-bat. After Jeter […] The post Joba Chamberlain...

Former New York Yankees teammates Joba Chamberlain and Derek Jeter faced off against each other during the 10th inning of Tuesday’s Tigers-Yankees game. Chamberlain, who told reporters before the game that he wanted to stick his tongue out at Jeter if the two face each other, really did it. Unfortunately, the at-bat ended with Chamberlain drilling Jeter […] The post Joba...
As weird as it may sound, the one thing Joba Chamberlain wanted to do when he faced former teammate Derek Jeter was stick his tongue out at him. No really, he told reporters he wanted to do so if they faced each other during this week’s series. They matched up on Tuesday night and as Jeter […]
DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers reliever Joba Chamberlain is returning to New York for a four-game series beginning Monday night with the Yankees who raised him. He's looking forward to many things, but one meeting in particular is occupying his thoughts.
"I really, really hope I get a chance to face Derek," said Chamberlain, who was Derek Jeter's teammate from 2007 through 2013. "I want...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- David Freese hit a tiebreaking homer off Joba Chamberlain in the eighth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 Sunday for their third straight victory.
Erick Aybar scored from second base on Rick Porcello's poor pickoff throw in the fifth for the Angels, who improved the majors' second-best record to 63-41 in the finale of a 10-game...
Joba Chamberlain had quite a day.
After getting a well-deserved day off Tuesday following three straight appearances, Chamberlain came into the game a little early Wednesday.
The Arizona Diamondbacks had runners at first and second with just one out in the seventh and the Tigers holding a 7-5 lead.
Chamberlain came in to face Paul Goldschmidt, the Diamondbacks' best hitter.
DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have gotten a good return on their short-term investment in right-hander Joba Chamberlain.
"He's been the one piece that has been consistent all year," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.
Chamberlain leads the American League in holds heading into Detroit's road trip this week against the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels.
He pitched the...
The rumor mill is already swirling around the Detroit Tigers and what they may do prior to the July 31st trade deadline. One thing is nearly certain – they will add at least one bullpen piece, maybe two.
After all, do you see a 7-man pen that includes Pat McCoy, Blaine Hardy (who I actually really like), Chad Smith (intriguing), Phil Coke and Al Alburquerque powering the Tigers...
DETROIT -- Little League teammates dream of someday playing together in the major leagues. It's an aspiration that usually fades by the time they finish high school. But for Joba Chamberlain and Alex Gordon, the dream was realized.
Chamberlain is one of the game's most dependable relievers for the Detroit Tigers, while Gordon is a Gold Glove left fielder for the Kansas City Royals...
