Game 2015.77: Pirates at Tigers

Last night’s loss is on the O, not the pen, or even Gorzelanny. Alex Wilson was at 50+ pitches and Gorzelanny was the last guy in the pen. Ausmus didn’t have any other options. A hit with a RISP would have been nice. 3-15 usually isn’t going to get the job done; unless of course you are Pittsburgh and get a W hitting 2-16 w RISP. Baseball is a funny game.

Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera hanging on to lead in All-Star voting

Major League Baseball released the final All-Star balloting update on Monday and if things stand pat, only one Tigers player will be named a starter. Miguel Cabrera remains the leading vote-getter for AL first basemen, with nearly 11.6 million votes. Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer is still holding his ground in second place, with more than 9.1 million votes. With a lead of nearly...

Detroit Tigers: trading Cespedes makes sense ( + dollars)

Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is the Detroit Tigers most valuable trading piece and they should take advantage of it. The fact of the matter is that the Tigers are 39-36 and on the outside looking in of the playoff picture. While it is “only June,” it is also June, so the Tigers have had almost 3 months to distance themselves from the rest of the pack in the AL Central Division...

MLB Announces New Home Run Derby Format With Bracket Format, Timed Rounds

Cespedes, Donaldson contributing after big offseason trades

For a Detroit team that's already dealt with its share of injuries, the steady production of Yoenis Cespedes has been a big help. Both at the plate and in left field. ''He's been very good in left field - much better than anticipated,'' manager Brad Ausmus said. ''Everyone knew about the arm, but I think he covers more ground than we expected. He takes pride in his defense.'' Cespedes...

Cutest celebration of MLB season? Not from kids, but from this elderly duo

Sometimes the best action in the stadium is in the stands. Example: Check out the funky handshake celebration in the crowd between an older man and woman after the Tigers' Yoenis Cespedes tripled against the White Sox in Detroit's 5-4 win Friday night -- extra points for flair: Can they teach these big leaguers any new tricks?

Old Tigers fans have an elaborate celebratory handshake that is too cute (VIDEO)

At Friday night's White Sox-Tigers game, two more mature Detroit fans took Yoenis Cespedes' RBI triple as an opportunity to show everyone that you are never too old to have a secret celebratory handshake. And who knows how long these two senior have been keeping high-five, low-five, finger-jive under wraps. And that wasn't the crack of a bat you heard — it was someone’s elbow.

Detroit Continues to Maul Tribe; Tigers 8, Indians 5

The Indians rallied from an early 3-0 deficit to tie the Tigers, but Detroit countered with four in the fourth off Tribe starter Trevor Bauer for an 8-5 win. Jason Kipnis had a two-run double and Michael Brantley followed with an RBI single to tie it in the third, but Miguel Cabrera drew an RBI, bases-loaded walk, Victor Martinez had a two-run single and Yoenis Cespedes followed...

The Detroit Tigers offense is struggling to say the least, changes need to be made

Special Guest Writer Vito Jerome The Detroit Tigers do not possess an All-Star caliber lineup. And people should’ve realized such would be the case a long time ago. Ian Kinsler has hit all of one home run and now can’t hit for average. Kinsler hit a paltry .231 after the All-Star break in 2014 as a result of his batting average on balls in play dipping in the second half from...

Tigers' Cespedes accepts award for legendary throw last year against Angels

Don't run on Yoenis Cespedes. This is something pretty much everyone in baseball knows. The Detroit Tigers left-fielder has one of the best arms in the game. He's made a number of jaw-dropping plays in the outfield, some so pretty they deserve an award. And this weekend, he got that award. You might recall the laser he threw the Angels in June of last year, which reached home on...

Tigers-Reds game delayed due to Yoenis Cespedes' poorly-timed bathroom break

The Tigers and Reds experienced an interesting delay during Monday night's game at Comerica Park. As Anibal Sanchez took the mound for Detroit in the third inning, he noticed something very strange: He was missing an outfielder. Yoenis Cespedes was nowhere to be found. The Tigers left-fielder was taking a poorly-timed bathroom break, prolonging the start of the inning. "Really, you...

Yoenis Cespedes Disappears From Tigers’ Outfield For Bathroom Break (Video)

As Detroit Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez toed the rubber to begin the third inning Monday night, he glanced out toward the outfield. And it’s a good thing he did. Sanchez wisely held up when he noticed what the Cincinnati Reds’ broadcasting team failed to: He didn’t have a left fielder. Yoenis Cespedes, penciled into the lineup in that position, was...

Detroit Tigers left fielder Yoenis Cespedes caused a delay in the top of the third inning during Monday's game against Cincinnati when he was late to take the field in what would seem to be a poorly timed bathroom break.Cespedes must have really had to go, and the umpire crew was kind enough to wait for him to take his spot on the field. Would any other sport delay a game in a similar...

Game 2015.62: Indians at Tigers

I’ll be glued to the radio for today’s broadcast. Of course I’d like for the Tigers to win, but I’m much more interested to see how JV pitches. If we can get 6 innings and 3 or less runs, I’ll be pleased. Getting through the first two innings will be crucial. Chris Iott of MLive did a story today which explained that one of JV’s biggest problems last year was pitching...

CHICAGO (AP) Yoenis Cespedes and J.D. Martinez homered in the sixth inning to power the Detroit Tigers past the Chicago White Sox 6-4 on Sunday. The Tigers have won consecutive games after dropping eight straight, their longest skid since 2005. Alfredo Simon (6-3) struck out seven and allowed four runs - one earned - in eight innings.

Detroit Tigers’ Daniel Fields records first MLB hit

The bad news: The Detroit Tigers losing streak hit seven games following a 7-5 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Thursday.

Game 2015.55: Athletics at Tigers

There isn’t much to say about last night’s game: the Tigers, were completely baffled by a legitimate Cy Young caliber pitcher. Games like that will happen. The problem is that when you are on a losing streak it’s harder to take them in stride. Miguel Cabrera does seem to be coming out of his night-game malaise, so there’s that.  Then there’s Ian Kinsler. A lot of good...

Now despite the Tigers faltering in the month of May and into June, the question this week is who would you rather the team sign long-term, Price an at times dominant lefty who still may be considered one of the best in the game or...

Tigers Daily-ish: Yoenis Cespedes Needs To Get Airborne

The Detroit Tigers offense has been in constant flux so far in 2015. They’ve put up some decent stats but, more importantly, have struggled to score runs on a consistent basis. Yoenis Cespedes was brought aboard this past off-season in the Rick Porcello deal in order to avoid some of this. Despite a rather pronounced need for some left-handed lineup balance, Cespedes’ righty...

Game 2015.37: Tigers at Cardinals

So are the Tigers (in other words Miguel Cabrera) over their night game funk? It certainly seems like it after last night. On the other hand, other than Gose and Cespedes the bats seemed to be full of NyQuil until the 7th inning, so maybe it was more a St. Louis Blowpen issue than kicking the night-game stupor. At any rate, it’s incredible how often that scenario happens: Cabrera...
