Gage: Verlander's next start will be first that can be fairly judged

DETROIT -- Spring training in June is over for Justin Verlander. It's time to move forward. In fact, it's high time to move forward. The Tigers are searching for consistency in their starting rotation. Most of the time, they've searched in vain. It's been David Price and "others" so far. They are 13-3 in starts made by Price, but 26-34 in starts made by anyone other than Price. And...

Martinez hit a game-tying two-run home run in the eighth, his 20th of the season and 11th in the month...

Cole v. Verlander

I think I speak for almost every Pirate fan when I say that I know that there were a lot of little things that went into Gerrit Cole’s ugly start against the Reds that weren’t necessarily his fault but that life would seem much sunnier if he turned in an Eff You Gerrit Cole start against the Tigers tonight. It’d be fitting to do it against Justin Verlander, a guy with whom...

‘Miscommunication’ magnifies Detroit Tigers lack of leadership

Forget about the Detroit Tigers’ comeback win. It was a fantastic victory for a club that needed it badly. Strip away Victor Martinez’s three-run triple that tied the score in the eighth inning. Take away James McCann’s walk-off home run to win the game in the ninth inning. If the Tigers don’t defeat the Chicago White Sox. 5-4, then the storyline is much different this...

After 69 games this season, the Detroit Tigers‘ record stands at 35-34. They are third in the AL Central at five-and-a-half games back. They have the tenth best record in the AL, which coincidentally is the exact same position they were in back in 2012 when they went on to reach the World Series, but this season feels different…and not in a good way.

Has Justin Verlander lost a step?

Last night, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander did something he has become quite accustomed to doing — make history. Unfortunately, this was the dubious side, something much more rare in the career of the former American League Cy Young, Most Valuable Player, and Rookie of the Year. In giving up Alex Rodriguez‘s 3,000th career hit, Verlander entered the record books just...
