Ventura’s No-Challenge Is Inexcusable

Robin Ventura was one of my favorite White Sox players growing up. When the Sox tagged him to become the manager I was both surprised but intrigued by the possibility. As such, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt at first. I was even willing to give him a pass for the last two years because he didn’t have much to work with.

Game 2015.8: Tigers at Pirates

Well all good streaks must come to an end, although this apparently does not apply to the Kansas City Royals, which means the 6 – 1 Tigers are now in 2nd place. Last night was a rough one for Mr. Castellanos, which is Spanish for “goat.” Last night there was one of those pivotal game moments that Kevin was talking about this weekend: with bases loaded and nobody out, the Tigers...

Reports of the Tigers’ demise were greatly exaggerated

Maybe it was their failure in the postseason against Baltimore last October (they lost seven of their last nine play off games). Maybe it was worries about their injuries and old age. Maybe it was boredom, refusing to pick the same team as always to win it all, but for some reason the sports writers of American (including those for this site) had essentially pronounced the Detroit...

Home opener spoiled by Tribe’s play; Tigers 8, Indians 4

The Indians managed to push three runs across in the bottom of the sixth off Tigers starter Alfredo Simon, but gave three right back in the top...

Buck Showalter, evil genius, predicted how Game 3 would end

Orioles manager Buck Showalter’s decision to have Zach Britton walk Nick Castellanos, the winning run, in the ninth inning yesterday to bring up Andrew Romine (replaced by pinch hitter Hernan Perez) was a ballsy one, but one that paid off in spades for Baltimore. When Showalter came to the mound to talk to Britton before the intentional walk, he accurately predicted the exact turn...
