Postgame 10: Padres 5, Tigers 1

SOUP DU JOUR Coleman April 13, 2014 at 6:48 pm [edit] We need to get Kelly back in the lineup. This Cabrera guy is killing us. Chase Headley was wearing his stone glove again, and that lent a wee bit of excitement to the top of the 9th, but otherwise, if you saw the 4th, you saw the game. Tigers had momentum, Max Scherzer gave it right back. Scherzer had a better day at the...

DraftKings: Max Out On Scherzer

Raise your hand if you got burned by Justin Masterson's last two starts. If you detect a touch of Old Spice deodorant and bitterness that's because I've got both of my arms straight up in the air on this one. Bet you're wondering how I can still type.

Royals' bats hit the snooze button in blowout loss to Twins

Yep, it would be easy to blame the shabby outing from No. 5 starter Bruce Chen, and the subsequent shaky effort from the Royals' bullpen. But the truth is, the Royals' pitiful offense once again let them down. The Royals justifiably can point to their early-season offensive struggles after having faced studs such as Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Chris Sale, Matt Moore and...

Dodgers 3, Tigers 2: Let This Be The World Series, Please

If there was ever a time for me to do a post that was literally just a GIF and nothing else, it would be this. Dee Gordon hit a homer. In the big leagues. Off Max Scherzer!

Ian Kinsler, Max Scherzer lead Tigers to second straight walk-off win over Royals

If you’re a destination person — never mind the journey, in other words — you’re happy the Tigers are 2-0. Nothing matters more than that: They are 2-0. But if you’re more into how the Tigers have gotten there and how the ride has gone, there’s been plenty of scenery, even more in Game 2 than the opener. The bottom-line similarity the first two games is they’ve both...
