Game 2015.22: Tigers at Twins

It wasn’t cold last night, and the Tigers didn’t hit into a bunch of double plays or leave a dozen men on base. The latest winning streak came to an end because last night Cy Pelfrey baffled the Tigers to the tune of only 3 hits and 6 total base runners. Was this the first “tip your cap” game of the season? Although with no Jim Leyland around there was nobody to literally...

Yoenis Cespedes’ value lies solely in his name

Yoenis Cespedes is an extremely interesting case among Major League outfielders. He isn’t nearly as good as the general perception of his skill set might indicate. Yet, in the past six months, he’s been traded twice, for two fairly notable pitchers: first for Jon Lester and now he’s headed to Detroit in exchange for Rick Porcello. Although the two pitchers were rentals,...
