Game 2014.104: White Sox at Tigers

Baseball Reference Game Preview Hector Noesi vs. Max Scherzer Let me offer the following radical theory as to why the Tigers lose when they lose: The players didn’t play well enough. I know I’m going out on a limb to suggest that players on the field are responsible for making the plays, getting the outs, and scoring the runs, but I’ve decided to make this my bully pulpit for...

Tigers notes: Finger contusion sidelines Castellanos

DETROIT -- Good thing Miguel Cabrera got some work in at third base when the Tigers were in Arizona. Third baseman Nick Castellanos was a late lineup scratch with a right index finger contusion, so Cabrera was moved over to third. The Tigers said Castellanos was hit with a grounder during batting practice. Victor Martinez, originally the designated hitter, was moved to first base...

One Man’s Trash: A-Jax Attacks

It's nice to feel good about a call now and then. This week's most added player was Austin Jackson (+42%). He was one of the first players in this column to get the "treasure" label back in early June when he was one of the most dropped. Back then I said, "It looks a little bleak now, but I still think Jackson gets to double digit homers and 20 steals by the...

Game 2014.103: White Sox at Tigers

Baseball Reference Game Preview Jose Quintana vs. Anibal Sanchez Would you trade the boom and bust of a typical MLB offense for something more consistent? The Detroit Tigers have scored 476 runs. They did not but could have done so by scoring (in any order) 5, 5, and 4 runs in any consecutive three games, consistently and without fail. Would that have been better? There are two answers...

VIDEO: Joyce ejects Ausmus after instant replay… But what is the rule?

During last night’s Tigers 4-0 loss to the Angels, manager Brad Ausmus was ejected in the third inning by every Tigers fan favorite umpire Jim Joyce. The reason for Ausmus’ second career ejection as a manager was for continuing to argue a call that was apparently supported by instant replay and given a final rule upon. The play in question was Matt Shoemaker’s pick-off of Eugenio...

Angels' 4-0 win over Tigers may be a glimpse of October

Never have the Angels and Detroit Tigers met in October. If this series is some sort of playoff preview, bring it on. The Oakland Athletics have the best record in the major leagues, followed by the Angels and then the Tigers. It is a long way to October, but the standings set up now for the teams to play what could be an enticing first-round postseason series. We could see just...
