Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera took part in the ice bucket challenge Wednesday with the help of Nebraska’s very own Grizzly Adams Joba Chamberlain. Now although you can’t really understand what Miggy is saying at the beginning of the video other than possibly nominating some other gringos’ for the challenge, the reining AL MVP does give us a little dance at the end.

Game 2014.126: Tigers at Twins

It’s hard to find words to describe last night’s game: not David Price’s gem, not the scoreless wonders on offense.

Hogg: Losing Castillo sweepstakes not bad thing for Tigers

This time, the Detroit Tigers are probably better off losing to the Bostons Red Sox.

The truth...
