Game 2015.79: Blue Jays at Tigers

Well, us fans aren’t the only ones who feel like something has to be done with this team. The front office started off by shaking up the bullpen. It couldn’t hurt, right? The Tigers brought up converted starters John Ferrell from Toledo and Drew VerHagen from AA Erie, and gave the boot to Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzellany (which leaves Hardy as the only lefty in the bullpen...

Game 2015.78: Pirates at Tigers

This team seems so uninspired. We may be beating a dead horse, but how long can this go on? Baseball-Reference game preview here. BTW – I have a friend who works for the Indians. I texted him last night after the 2nd out of the 9th to say “looks like you’ll be busy tonight.” Next pitch was a line drive single to right. TIGERS (career numbers off Liriano) Rajai Davis, CF...

Game 2015.77: Pirates at Tigers

Last night’s loss is on the O, not the pen, or even Gorzelanny. Alex Wilson was at 50+ pitches and Gorzelanny was the last guy in the pen. Ausmus didn’t have any other options. A hit with a RISP would have been nice. 3-15 usually isn’t going to get the job done; unless of course you are Pittsburgh and get a W hitting 2-16 w RISP. Baseball is a funny game.

How Many All Stars Do the Royals DESERVE?

    Yesterday, just four days before All-Star balloting ends and seven days before the All-Star starters are named, the Royals had five would-be starters, if that voting ended now. This is two weeks after the Royals peaked with EIGHT leaders. Last week, Miguel Cabrera passed Eris Hosmer at first base, joining Mike Trout as the only non-Royals leading the fan...

Selecting the 2015 American League All-Stars

Yesterday, we tackled the National League’s 34 most deserving candidates, so today, we’ll do the American League. When it comes to picking players, I lean very heavily towards in-season performance, as I tend towards the camp that sees the game as a reward for the players more than a showcase for the fans. It is […]

Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera hanging on to lead in All-Star voting

Miguel Cabrera remains the leading vote-getter for AL first basemen, with nearly 11.6 million votes. Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer is still holding his ground in second place, with more than 9.1 million votes. With a lead of nearly...

Kansas City Royals lose two more all-star starters in latest voting

As Thursday’s deadline approaches for All-Star Game voting to close, it appears baseball fans outside of Kansas City are moving ever closer to making the American League team an accurate representation of which players truly deserve to start in Cincinnati on July 14. In other words, two more Kansas City Royals lost their starting places this past week, bringing the number down...

Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera wants to participate in Home Run Derby

Miguel Cabrera is undoubtedly one of the greatest hitters of this generation. The nine-time All-Star has a laundry list of MLB accolades, including two-time MVP, Triple Crown winner, three-time AL batting champ, five-time Silver Slugger Award-winner and even World Series Champ. But there's one thing missing from Miggy's resume: Home Run Derby winner. Cabrera could be coming for this...

Rockies' Nolan Arenado matches Miguel Cabrera streak

According to MLB.com, Arenado currently has a...

Matt’s Musings: Infield All-Star Frontrunners Edition

So, who wants to see seven Kansas City Royals and two other AL players versus the NL in the All-Star Game? I surely don’t. While maybe one or two Royals actually deserve the honor, the rest don’t. The other Royals are as deserving as another Terminator re-boot or another Ghostbusters only with female leads and a male receptionist. Ha, get it? The role reversal from the first...

Healthy V-Mart critical to Tigers' victory, future success

DETROIT -- Last year, when you absolutely, positively had to have a run driven in, the man you wanted at the plate was Victor Martinez. Miguel Cabrera had a higher batting average with runners in scoring position, .354 to .326, but Martinez had eight home runs and 67 RBI in those situations to Cabrera's five home runs and 33 RBI. Of course, a lot of that was due to teams walking...

Game 2015.75: White Sox at Tigers

It seems to be finished raining all over Detroit, so we resume what is now a three-game series against the White Sox, with what should turn out to be a pitcher’s duel type of affair. If Samardzija vs. Price sounds familiar, it’s because they faced each other in Detroit on April 17th. In that one Samardzija went 8, and gave up only 1 run, while striking out 7 (no walks). Price...

Tigers fall short against White Sox, 8-7

DETROIT (AP) Miguel Cabrera stepped to the plate with the tying run at second and a chance to cap a 10th-inning comeback. The Chicago White Sox didn't dare give him the chance. Cabrera was intentionally walked to load the bases and David Robertson struck out Josh Wilson to end the game, finishing an 8-7 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.

Game 2015.73: White Sox at Tigers

Yesterday was a bit of a throwaway game, what with Buck Farmer on the mound and Miguel Cabrera on the bench. Still, It was nice to see JD Martinez and Andrew Romine stay hot. When Romine led off the 3rd with a double and then stole 3rd, I thought maybe the Tigers had a chance to take this one. Alas, he was left there at 3rd, and that was that. Still, the Tigers won two-of-three on...

White Sox-Tigers Preview

The Chicago White Sox's Carlos Rodon has mostly pitched as expected in his first two months in the majors, though he's yet to face a potent Detroit Tigers lineup. That includes a rested Miguel Cabrera, who looks to lead the Tigers to a win over the highly regarded rookie in Thursday's opener to a four-game series at Comerica Park. Rodon (3-1, 3.75 ERA) has allowed two or fewer earned...

Young Indians fans talks smack to Cabrera, is rewarded with bat

Hey, did you know the Cleveland Indians have struggled against the Detroit Tigers of late? In what would end as yet another Tribe loss against the divisional rival Tigers (this one 7-3), at least one person wearing an Indians ball cap near the diamond showed a little fire — it was just too bad that it had to be someone who wasn’t on the Indians major league roster … and was...

As a bounding ball came down the first-base foul line, the fan reached over the wall and snagged the ball with his hat. Clearly excited about his grab, he...
