Dodgers @ Tigers July 9, 2014: Doesn’t Get Much Better Than Greinke Vs Scherzer

Well, there’s some good news today: Miguel Cabrera gets the day off from the Detroit lineup. I’m pretty sure we’ve made this observation more than once over the last year or so, generally when Paul Maholm replaced Clayton Kershaw or with the various shortstops who have filled in for Hanley Ramirez, but it’s hard to think of a bigger downgrade. Cabrera is an obvious Hall...

Game 2014: 87 Dodgers at Tigers

It’s always relaxing to watch one of those never-in-doubt games, but it’s even more fun to watch a game that starts out doomed, becomes a game again, and ends a never-in-doubt romp. I was the last person who thought that there would be any coming back from the 5-run Justin “Don’t Call Me Bonderman” Verlander first inning, especially after struggling to score runs against...

Tigers, Justin Verlander weather rough start to rout Dodgers

About the hitting the Tigers did all night, we could talk all day. Down 5-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers after the first inning on Tuesday night, the Tigers had tied the game by the second. They were in front to stay by the third. They’d scored 11 runs by the fourth. And eventually won 14-5 on the strength of 16 singles, two doubles and two triples: J.D. Martinez’s first as...

New goal for the Oakland A’s: avoid the Detroit Tigers

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Real Offensive Value — First Basemen, Part II

First base is the easiest position on the diamond to punt on draft day. If you have no doubt about that then all you need to do is look at this second tier list of first sackers. They are a part of the second list because they fell outside the top ten in real offensive value. Of course, some of them are better than that and were drafted higher than that. The point is not to look...

One More Reminder: Jose Altuve is Small

Miguel Cabrera is on a roll. Not from an offensive standpoint (although you can make the case for that).
