But those aren’t the numbers I find most intriguing. As we near the halfway point of the MLB season, here are some digits to chew on: From 2009 through Jim Leyland’s last season in ’14, the Tigers were a consistently dominant...

The Tigers have lost patience

The Detroit Tigers have gone 3-8 thus far in June. The team's lead atop the American League Central has shrunk from seven games on May 19 to a game and a half on June 14th. Pitching has been the primary culprit with mixed results from the starters and the bullpen. But the offense is not exactly clicking on all cylinders either. And the biggest problem to be found with the offense...

Rajai Davis displays exceptional baserunning skills on steal vs. A’s

Davis witnessed A’s catcher Derek Norris lollygagging on his throws back to the pitcher, and perhaps the pitcher doing the same thing upon catching the return throw, so Davis exploited...
