1984 Detroit Tigers to celebrate 30th anniversary of their World Series title

It was 30 years ago. The season that made me a Detroit Tigers fan for life. The boys of summer, one of the most complete teams ever assembled. A team that began the season 35-5 and cruised to a division title and went 7-1 in the post-season. The 1984 Detroit Tigers were nothing short of […]

What chips do the Detroit Tigers have to deal as the trade deadline approaches?

We can safely assume that the Detroit Tigers will be active in the trade market as we approach the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. In fact, they have already made a move adding Daniel Schlereth again from the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash considerations. The likely target for improvement is the bullpen and the Tigers have […]

Detroit Tigers battle the Texas Rangers, fans battle Boomstick

If you’re heading down to Globe Life Park in Arlington this week to watch your Detroit Tigers take on the Texas Rangers, I recommend trying one of their “Texas sized” items on the food menu. Ever since the “Boomstick” became famous in 2012, the Rangers  have added other new gigantic foods to their repertoire.  This year, […]

United States Men’s National Team: Staying Positive

After Sunday night’s heartbreaking result of a tie vs. Portugal in the 2nd game of Group G in Manaus, Brazil, the United States Men’s National Team should have every reason to stay positive after the result.  The fact of the matter is a tie is what they had to have at a minimum and a […]

Detroit Tigers lose AL Central lead to the Kansas City Royals

The Detroit Tigers are 67 games into the 2014 MLB season and they are taking one step further away from the World Series every day. After last night’s loss to the Kansas City Royals, the Tigers drop down to 2nd place in the AL Central. Comerica Park’s attendance seems to be declining since the the […]

Do the Detroit Tigers have bandwagon fans?

I have listened to Rob Parker yell on the radio for a large part of my adulthood. However, as much as he yells, I have to disagree with him on one key point. Detroit is not a baseball town, it is a football town. How do I know this? Well much like Mr. Parker, I […]

The Detroit Tigers season turns ugly

At the famed 40 game mark, the 2014 Detroit Tigers were 27-13, were well ahead in the division and they seemed able to overcome their apparent weaknesses. However, a 162 game season will shows the cracks in any team’s armor and the Tigers of 2014 are a very flawed team. When we consider the situation […]

Panic time for the Detroit Tigers?

The last 18 days or so have not been great for our Detroit Tigers. Sure, they still sit atop a very weak Central Division and sure 31-24 doesn’t sound all that bad. However, they have gone just 3-7 over their last ten games and are losers of four straight. Last night’s game featured two key […]

Isiah Thomas in talks to buy a stake in the Detroit Pistons

I do not know how to feel about this one. For guys my age, Isiah Thomas was a boyhood hero, the Captain of the infamous Bad Boy Detroit Pistons. For me it goes a little deeper as I worked at a fast food place once upon a time and Zeek would frequent it quite a […]

The curious draft strategy of the Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions, under Martin Mayhew, have said repeatedly that they have a best player available mindset when it come to the NFL draft. There are many who subscribe to this theory, I do not happen to be one of them, but picking up an impact player with your draft picks is certainly a sound […]

When will Dave Dombrowski and the Detroit Tigers learn?

The Detroit Tigers made several roster moves prior to the 2014 MLB season, including the trades of Doug Fister, Prince Fielder for Ian Kinsler, and the additions of Joe Nathan, Joba Chamberlain, and Rajai Davis. Now a little over a month into the season, the same weakness that ailed the Tigers last year, ails them […]

If Tigers Lose Max Scherzer, Blame Dave Dombrowski

Scherzer.  Max Scherzer.  That’s the biggest reason why the Detroit Tigers are the hottest team in baseball. It seems like not too long ago that the Tigers fans were bashing Scherzer for not taking the “substantial” contract extension that Dave Dombrowski offered him. Substantial?  Really?  In the words of John McEnroe: YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!!!!! […]

Lions Take Value Over Need in NFL Draft

That Detroit Lions secondary is scary.  Not scary-good like the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.  Scary-bad like a Rich Rodriguez defense at The University of Michigan. The 2014 NFL Draft has, mercifully, come to an end.  The drama from Johnny Manziel to Michael Sam lasted for three days; drama that appeared to last longer than […]

Why the Lions Draft was worst of the NFL Draft on Day 1

The Detroit Lions made the absolute worst pick of NFL history on day 1 of the 2014 NFL Draft with the 10th overall pick. The Lions had many needs to fill headed into the draft this year, with most of those being on the defensive side of the ball. With no one good available at Cornerback […]

Finally it’s draft day…What should the Detroit Lions do?

Detroit Lions General Manager Martin Mayhew believes that there are not 10 elite talents in this year’s NFL Draft class. He may very well be right. With that in mind the question becomes do the Lions need an elite talent? The real question becomes do what do the Lions actually need to take the step […]

What should the Detroit Tigers do with Phil Coke?

The stat line is ugly. In 7.2 innings pitched so far in 2014, Phil Coke has an ERA over 9, he has given up 8 earned runs, and Saturday it was hard to watch Manager Brad Ausmus trust him with a 9 run lead. Of course he promptly gave up two runs and continues to […]

Doug Fister Trade Continues to Haunt Detroit Tigers

As high-priced pitcher, Anibal Sanchez, was recently placed on the 15-day disabled list, one name came to mind: Doug Fister. The Detroit Tigers, 12-9  and in first place in the competitive-for-now AL Central Division, will be a man short in their starting rotation for at least a couple of weeks.  Sanchez will recover from a […]

2014 Detroit Tigers season week in review: Week 3

The good news here is the Detroit Tigers are 9-6, they are in first place in the division, and it looks like this is a team that can manufacture runs. The offense still has the tendency to go cold for extended periods of time but the addition of a little speed and a philosophy of […]

Should we build Mike Illitch another stadium?

Before everyone goes all crazy…let us examine the facts. Detroit is a bankrupt city facing a plethora of challenges. Even though sports are my life and my livelihood I understand there place in society. It is entertainment; it is a distraction from our regular boring lives.
