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 2015.78: Pirates at Tigers

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. Additionally...

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....

Game 2015.69: Tigers at Yankees

Well, here we are, all that early season winning has been squandered and we’re back where the season started, neither winners nor losers. Although that could change today, facing a tough pitcher and a Yankee team that’s as hot as Detroit is cold. After the game Victor Martinez stated the obvious: “If we keep playing like this, we’re going nowhere.” One thing the team definitely...

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. How many times have you seen games where a pitcher throws what should have been...

That’s quite a spike for a pitcher who allowed 25 homers combined during his past three seasons. Facing the Cubs Tuesday night, Sanchez was about to give up home run No. 14 to David Ross.

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...
