Joba Chamberlain: great pitcher, not a great hitter

The Arizona Diamondbacks had runners at first and second with just one out in the seventh and the Tigers holding a 7-5 lead.

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: 4 ideal bullpen targets

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...

Chamberlain ready to close in Nathan's place

Friday, though, it doesn't take inside information to realize...

Joba Chamberlain Presents Teammates with Zubaz

I believe it was famed New York Yankees skipper Casey Stengel who, in 1927, once uttered the now-legendary phrase…”a team that wears baggy elastic-waisted pants together, stays together.” And while I might have the year wrong, it’s an adage that remains true today.  Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you…a handful of Chamberlain’s teammates wearing Zubaz.

Chamberlain a bright spot in Tigers' reeling bullpen

The Detroit Tigers took a chance on Joba Chamberlain. One month into the season, he's brought some stability to the back end of the bullpen and rewarded the team's confidence in his ability to regain his touch.

With Rondon out, Chamberlain will be Tigers' setup man

Bruce Rondon will soon undergo Tommy John surgery and won't come back to the bullpen until next season. It might even be two years before Rondon returns to his full fire-balling form, and that leaves a hole at the back end of the bullpen for the Detroit Tigers. It's not a gaping hole, however.
