Game 2015.129: Tigers at Blue Jays

Today Buck Farmer takes his turn at trying to keep the Blue Jays in the yard. This lineup is truly potent, as opposed to the “potent” Tigers offense that Rod Allen is always talking about. The Tigers have leadoff hitters who can’t get on base and a cleanup hitter who can’t hit in runs, but hey, other than that they are fine. When David Price made his last start fort the Tigers...

VIDEO: The best squirrel won Thursday’s Royals-Tigers game

mlb.com This mighty mighty squirrel took home the MVP from the Tigers 8-6 win over the Royals on Thursday.  It wasn’t Alex Wilson who closed it out for the Tigs in the ninth inning. It wasn’t Ian Kinsler who hit the walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth. It wasn’t even Victor Martinez who hit two home runs himself and knocked in five RBIs. Rajai Davis was quoted as...

Game 2015.106: Royals at Tigers

Well today is the first day of the Al Avila era, wasn’t expecting to be saying that. It is also a chance for Justin Verlander to try for a third straight dominant outing. If he does it will be a pretty exciting sign that we have at least one dependable starter in the rotation. I wasn’t expecting that one guy to be ol’ JV. The Tigers have also announced that LHP Matt Boyd has...

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.

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.

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....

Game 2015:60: Cubs at Tigers

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.
