Andre Drummond is the best.
The full press release is below:
DETROIT – Olympia Development of Michigan today announced plans for a sweeping transformation of dozens of underutilized blocks between downtown and midtown Detroit into a world-class Sports and Entertainment District. The project will connect existing and new development efforts in downtown and midtown Detroit along Woodward Avenue with five walkable...
Michigan Man and Detroit native Mike Martin talks a lot of **** to Suh and outdoes him in the weight department, but Suh is a superior football player, which is what they get paid to do. Ironically, it’s Martin who comes off like a big ol’ jerk here and you almost feel bad for the boy named Suh.
In spring training, #Tigers Ausmus called VerHagen a "young Ben Affleck." Maybe the real thing could watch VerHagen's MLB debut tomorrow.

Drew VerHagen, who I called during Spring Training a morph between Verlander and some other unknown dude named Hagen, may be showcasing himself for a very important trade Dave Dombrowski...
Did Norris learn anything about Scherzer? "Yeah, that he throws sliders when you call changeups and changeups when you call sliders."

Max Scherzer: 1st Tigers pitcher to win an All-Star Game since Hall-of-Famer Jim Bunning in 1957

Miguel Cabrera admitted before the game that his core injury that required offseason surgery was still bothering him and affecting his power (only 14 home runs thus far this season), but he had no trouble turning on a Adam Wainwright fastball in the first inning and sending it into the seats. Miggy’s social media guy/gal also wasted no time getting the video up on his official...
Randy Johnson, Part Deux. Sequels are always worse.
When Joe Posnanski calls it miraculous, you read:
As mentioned, these zero-walk, zero-strikeout shutouts — let’s call them Porcellos to make it simple — these Porcellos used to be rare but they did happen. If you go back to 1969 — that expansion year championship series in each league — there have been nine Porcelllos pitched:

No need to worry about Nick Catellanos. Don Kelly was on deck, in his spot, but that's only because Castellanos was in the bathroom.
— James Schmehl (@jamesschmehl) July 4, 2014
It was a brief scare, because it was early in the game, and apparently the team ran out of toilet paper, but Castellanos made it back in time for his at bat. He finished the game 2-for-4 and feeling...
Going with Tommy Tutone lineup today: 8-6-7-5-3-0-9.

Then the Tigers went long distance in the first inning three times.
Jenny’s lineup didn’t work...
We felt it all the way down in our plums, calling Billy Zane’s grand salami time moments before it happened like Nostradamus probably did many years ago.
Rajai ******* Davis.
Sean Doolittle entered the appearance with a 0.59 WHIP and only one walk issued over 39 innings of work. He gave up back-to-back singles to start the inning and walked Austin Jackson, who was 0-for-his-last...
It has been 30 years since the Tigers last won a World Series #RoarOf84. There was a celebration on Monday before the Tigers took on the Oakland A’s. What better way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Tigers’ last World Series than with a World Series, though, right?
Eat ‘em up in ’14.
Rick Porcello is the third @MLB pitcher since 1900 to win 10 or more games in each of his first 6 seasons prior to turning 26 years old.

The other two? Hall of Famers Bert Blyleven and Dennis Eckersley.
Dinwiddie. What a name. The Mayor. Even better. He also has a mustache, which I’m sure Stan Van Gundy will make him shave because that’s what men with powerful mustaches do to others with powerful mustaches. Only one mustache per squad, bro. (See Jeff Bower.)
Welcome to Detroit, Dinwiddie!
Before the season, Ian Kinsler made a hilarious wish that his old team, the Texas Rangers, would “lose their ass” and go 0-162 this season. He also called their GM a sleaze ball. In his first game back in Texas with his new team, the Detroit Tigers, Kinsler homered in his first at bat. On his way to first base, he gave what appeared to be a little dismissive wave toward the Rangers’...
Beltre’s 2,500th hit was met with a standing ovation and a head rub from the always-playful Miguel Cabrera. Beltre, never pleased with anyone touching his head, immediately collected hit no. 2,501 on Cabrera’s nuts. (Vine via Brady Green)
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) decided on Wednesday, in a 2-1 decision, to cancel the Washington Redskins’ six (6) federal trademark registrations including the term “Redskins.” According to the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (“TTAB”) federal law “prohibits registration of matter that disparages a substantial composite, which need not be...

A self-proclaimed #puckbunny tweeted to the Red Wings that she’d like to marry a Red Wings player in the future. The Red Wings responded (above), telling her to aspire to do greater things than chase jerseys for a living. Don’t let the Red Wings Twitter...
Ausmus was asked how he deals with the losing when he goes home: "I beat my wife." Obviously was joking and he later apologized.

More from Matthew B. Mowery of The Oakland Press:
Immediately, he added: “I’m just kidding. My wife and kids are fantastic. I do get a little mopey at home. But my wife and kids are good. They’ve...

If you were a baseball fan in the 80s and 90s, you were a Tony Gwynn fan. Such a pure hitter. Rest in Peace.

Right on my ass, after you kiss it!
In his 179th career start, Max Scherzer twirled his first complete game — a shutout of the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night, 4-0. Scherzer struck out eight and only gave up three hits while also walking three. On his 104th pitch of the game, Scherzer hit 95 mph. After the game, with Scherzer chee$ing, Rod Allen had the second best line of the night — Scherzer having the best...
