'Rebooting' Tigers open series in Baltimore

Just a few days ago, it looked like the Baltimore Orioles would be best served going into sell mode with their impending free agents. A hot streak has almost certainly dismissed any chance of that. While the Detroit Tigers appear to be looking toward next season judging by their general manager's comments, they'll try to prevent the Orioles from matching their longest win streak...

Game 2015.84: Tigers at Mariners

Another game another day closer to .500. Jason Beck had some interesting thoughts on Ausmus’ late inning decisions last night. He’s not quite calling them into question, but the fact that he’s writing about it… Ryan down, Farmer up. Not sure if that helps or hurts one of the worst bullpens in the AL.

Red Sox Notes: Alejandro De Aza Trade Keeps Looking Better For Boston

This embed is invalid   " /> The Boston Red Sox are halfway through their regular-season slate. The Red Sox defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 12-6 in their 81st game of 2015 on Thursday night at Rogers Centre. It was an excellent bounce-back effort after Wednesday afternoon’s demoralizing loss. The Red Sox went 5-2 on their seven-game road trip against the Blue...

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...

Tigers need to make change atop lineup

(Leon Halip/Getty Images North America) It’s time to change up the top of the Tigers’ order, Brad Ausmus. It’s more than fine for both Rajai Davis and Jose Iglesias to bat leadoff, but Anthony Gose should not be for the foreseeable future with his batting average ending up at .169 for the month of June after his 1-for-5 performance on Tuesday against the Pirates.

It’s time for the Detroit Tigers to remove Anthony Gose from leadoff spot

When the Detroit Tigers traded away Austin Jackson as part of the David Price acquisition, it left the team with a sizable hole in center field. For the second half of the 2014 season, the Tigers used a combination of Rajai Davis and Ezequiel Carrera. The patch work platoon did a solid job, but it was obvious that an upgrade was needed for 2015. Jackson did an excellent job roaming...

Game 2015.74: White Sox at Tigers

Last night’s loss was a frustrating and disappointing one, and and there seem to be some holes wearing through the team unity fabric. Alfredo Simon reacted angrily when Rajai Davis missed the long fly to deep center, and I’d be shocked if what he shouted after didn’t contain some sort of profanity. After the game Simon mentioned Davis’ “bad jump” at least four times....

The Tigers continue to roll; 3 and counting. Also 3 and counting for Ian Kinsler multiple hit games. Coincidence? I think not.  I think we can safely say The Slump is over. You wouldn’t necessarily think it in a 6-0 game, but the Rajai Davis catch was a game-changing moment. Baseball is like that.
