Why Didn’t Brad Ausmus Leave Rajai Davis in Sunday Night’s Game?

After much deliberation over what went down during the Detroit Tigers’ frustrating 2-1 Sunday night loss to Kansas City, just one question remains unanswered … Not why Brad Ausmus pulled Miguel Cabrera for a pinch-runner. It backfired, obviously, in part because Davis did not even attempt a steal despite being on the bases for the next five batters. It’s also not why Ausmus...

Game 2015.27: Tigers at White Sox

The Tigers looked like they were heading for a losing series in Kansas City, until a complete game gem by David Price and 5 innings or perfect game to start Sunday’s game by Anibal Sanchez led them back to what turned out to be a satisfying series split. Hopefully the day off didn’t cool any momentum the Tigers had, and if momentum in baseball is really your next game’s starter...

Game 2014.26: Tigers at Royals

David Price responded in true ace form yesterday, with a 5 hit masterpiece that was 1 out from being a complete game shutout. KC fans went nuts after Cain hit a bomb to trim the lead to 2-1 in the bottom of the 9th, but Price responded by striking out Hosmer in 4 pitches. It was a desperately need win b/c the prospects of being swept in a 4 game series against what looks to be our...

Game 2015.20: Tigers at Twins

The Tigers are back to winning, taking the Indians series with a 2-game winning streak, and now they get the Twins, who they dominated by a combined score of 22-1 to start the season. It would be nice to get some momentum to take on the road to Kansas City on Friday. The victory Sunday came with a cost, however, as Rajai Davis had to leave the game with a groin strain and is day...

SAGNOF Special: Part Time Speed

Rajai Davis is, once again, a SAGNOF-ian legend.  Again, again, again, was exactly what he did on Saturday when the 34-year-old outfielder stole 3 bases.  This year he might just be the best fantasy player of all those playing only part time (the other player fighting for this honor, in my opinion, is Alex Guerrero).  He has 6 stolen bases despite starting in only 9 of 18 games...

Youch! Gomes out 6-8 weeks with MCL sprain

Find Value in Speed by Exploiting ESPN ADP

Speed is the easiest 5x5 category to find late in the draft.  In most drafts last year, Rajai Davis was an afterthought.  A guy to pick up in the late rounds of 12-team drafts and a guy who probably went undrafted in many 10-team drafts.  Last year I played in one Razzball Commenter League, and in that league I took Davis at pick #240.  He ended up finishing #111 on Rudy's Player...

Gene Lamont looked a lot like Rajai Davis on Saturday (PHOTO)

The jersey of Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont got some game action Saturday in spring training.  No, Brad Ausmus didn’t need to run Lamont out there to pinch run (I’m guessing Lamont can’t run).  Lamont didn’t need to mop up a split squad game. But rather, Tigers left fielder Rajai Davis forgot his jersey in Lakeland despite making the trip to Tampa to play the Yankees...
