2014: The 1st Inning (10-8)

While this is partly inspired by the old Sam Hoff season-as-innings feature, I’m not going to go into statistics too much, least of all cumulative team stats.

Tigers' newcomers played big role in division title

DETROIT -- Over 162 games, a one-game margin is almost nothing. If not for the baserunning blunders by Jarrod Dyson and Salvador Perez, it might have been the Royals celebrating a division title Sunday instead of the Tigers.

It didn’t begin that way: for the 2nd consecutive night the Tiger bats were having trouble, and Detroit went into the 5th with 18 consecutive scoreless innings behind them.

Rajai Davis power was the difference in the game, and we know he didn’t really get picked off 1B, either. J.D. Martinez...

Rusney Is Puig Latin For Steals

The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo by the Boston Red Sox has everybody excited. Like other Cuban players, scouts were limited in the amount of looks they were able to get and so the information we have on him is somewhat limited as well. The one tool that is not in question is his speed. A 30+ steal season from Castillo is a possibility as soon as 2015. The power is...
