Detroit Tigers looking more likely as the landing spot of Max Scherzer in 2015 and beyond

The annual Winter Meetings have come and gone. Agent Scott Boras described his client as “kind of a Peyton Manning, number 1 type of guy” and that “every general manager in baseball wants Max Scherzer on his team,” but the offers have not exactly come flying towards Boras and Max Scherzer. With Jon Lester off the market, Scherzer is clearly the best free agent pitcher remaining...

Tigers Offseason Depends on Scherzer

The Tigers off-season success depends on whether Max Scherzer will return or not. Scherzer is the top free agent on the market, and the Tigers need him back after he went 55-15 (unreliable stat, but holy smokes) with a 3.24 ERA, which is even HIGHER than his 2.94 FIP.  Basically Scherzer is the ace of the Tigers, and losing him would have a huge impact.  Need proof?

Did Max Scherzer really have his breakout in 2012?

Max Scherzer was on my fantasy baseball team in 2013. (Note: I recognize you don’t care about my fantasy team. This is in the service of a point, I promise.) My fantasy baseball team that year won the league championship, and Scherzer was a big reason why. I don’t remember if I thought to myself […]

Detroit Tigers Top 10 Prospects

The Detroit Tigers minor league system has been one of the worst in the majors for quite a few years now. But they still have a few guys that could come up and help the major league club. Rebuilding the Tigers’ system will have to happen through the draft. I fell the 2014 Tigers draft class was a pretty good start.  Derek Hill is the jewel of the system, and guys like Grayson...

Despite assurances to the contrary, the Yankee fan-base still clings to the Scherzer delusion

Yesterday, Evil Empire Prez Randy Levine reiterated what GM Brian Cashman has been saying since Thanksgiving: The Bronx Bottomers will not bid one fat nickel on Mr. Free Agent Fancypants Max Scherzer. Nope. Not prudent. The new Yankee motto: A penny saved is a pennant earned.Today, in lieu of a fourth and fifth starter, I say the Yankiverse must transcend pettiness and start pondering...

It’s World Series or bust for the Detroit Tigers in 2015

The task is very straightforward for manager Brad Ausmus and the 2015 Detroit Tigers team: Bring a championship to the Motor City, or else. Yoenis Cespedes was acquired by the Tigers who in turn shipped Rick Porcello to Boston last Thursday. Cespedes is a flashy, attention grabbing athlete – equipped with a flame spitting Lamborghini Aventador – who is able to put more fans in...

Justin Verlander ******** About Uber Surcharges

Yoenis Cespedes has a Lamborghini that spits fire (PHOTOS)

Yoenis Cespedes has been a member of three MLB teams in the last year. And now that he’s been shipped off to the Motor City, it makes perfect sense that he’d buy a flashy car. And that’s exactly what he did. He bought a Lamborghini Aventador, which tops out at 200 mph. But he took it next-level and decided to get it customized with flames that shoot out of the tailpipe. That is badass...

In fact, FenwayNation awarded Wilson our 2014 "Under The Radar Award". Why? Wilson hurled...
