Tigers' Hunter has big plans for post-playing career

DETROIT -- When you see Torii Hunter's smiling face on television doing post-game interviews, it's easy to imagine him sliding right onto a TV set when his playing career is over.   Now 39 and in his 18th season in the big leagues, Hunter is focused on achieving the one goal he has not yet accomplished -- winning the World Series. But Hunter admits that he has given his...

2nd Half Fantasy Baseball - Top 100

Video: Detroit Tigers fan makes over-the-wall catch, gets tossed

Using glovework that would have made Torii Hunter proud, a Detroit Tigers fan seated along the right field line at Comerica Park in Thursday afternoon’s contest against the New York Yankees stretched the rules of fandom and ultimately paid the price. The story began with Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos hitting a foul ball in the second inning. Reaching to his right to...

Game 2014.130: Yankees at Tigers

70-59, 2nd place, 1.5 games back, .5 WC games back. Lots of teams to watch these days. I gotta admit, it’s hard to find the motivation to prepare for this series. The Tigers have been in a three month tailspin, peppered with just enough respites to keep hope on life support. You know, one of the DTW posters (can someone remind me) used to do a nice write-up every 18 games, calling...

Game 2014.129: Tigers at Twins

Torii had said last week that he felt there was a lack of energy on the team, but that last night was different: “We had to go out there and come with a little more fight,” Torii Hunter said. “We lost the last two and we lost big. Those guys are taking first and third, stealing bases. So today, we played a little harder, and I could see it.” So instead of facing a disastrous...

Verlander and the Tigers avoid the sweep in the double-header

After giving up a total of 32 runs the first two games of the series, the Tigers and an overused bullpen buckled down and managed to squeak out an 8-6 win over the Twins Saturday night avoiding the sweep in the day/night double-header. Verlander, making his first start since an inflamed shoulder held him out of his last start wasn’t spectacular by any means but did enough to give...

Power Outage: Lack Of Power A Real Concern For Tigers

Simply put, the Detroit Tigers are not hitting the ball extremely well these days. This is definitely not the same team that has relied on power the past few seasons, but it is also a team that is not able to manufacutre runs like they were able to in the beginning of the season. When you are unable to manufacture runs, you need to be able to depend on some source of power in your...

Red Sox 'Bullpen Cop' Steve Horgan immortalized with own bobblehead

One of the most memorable images from last year’s MLB postseason featured a person not even playing in the games. When Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz jacked a grand slam during the eighth inning of Game 2 of the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers that led the Sox to a huge win, a Boston cop was in a prominent position as the ball cleared the fence. He then rode his fortunate stadium...

Defense not helping struggling Tigers

DETROIT -- It's well-documented that the Tigers' offense hasn't been great since the All-Star break, but the defense isn't helping either. In Sunday's 8-1 loss to the Mariners, the Tigers committed three errors, one each from first baseman Victor Martinez, left fielder Rajai Davis and third baseman Nick Castellanos. Those errors led to four unearned runs for the...

Detroit Tigers Trade Rumors: Team Has ‘Kicked Around’ Possibility of Adding a Hitter

The Detroit Tigers’ AL Central lead continues to dwindle and the offense continues to struggle — after putting up five runs early Sunday in Toronto, the Tigers went scoreless for the final 15 innings of that 6-5 loss. So now, with the waiver-trade deadline approaching, GM Dave Dombrowski may be looking for another bat. (“No kidding,” said every Tigers fan at the same time...

Game 2014.98: Tigers at Diamondbacks

For those of you who could stay up long enough, you probably wish you hadn’t, although pretty much the whole game took place in the 8th inning. In the top of the 8th, the Tigers blew not one but two opportunities with a runner at 3rd and less than two outs. The first was when Kinsler was caught in the dreaded Run On Contact play. I wish I had numbers for how often that fails; it...

Detroit Tigers: Is Torii Hunter Hall of Fame worthy?

It wasn’t too long ago that Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter was one of the best center fielders in baseball, at the plate and in the field. Hunter, now 39 years old, won nine-consecutive Gold Gloves from 2001-09, patrolling center field for the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Angels. He dominated the position for the good part of a decade. As Hunter plays in the final year...
