Big trade not so one-sided after all

Ian Kinsler Tigers – Photo Credit – Keith Allison Whenever a trade in professional sports happen, especially one as big as the blockbuster that sent Ian Kinsler to the Detroit Tigers and Prince Fielder to the Texas Rangers, we always obsess ourselves with wondering who “won” the trade. You have your lopsided trades, where a team THINKS they are getting a good player OR some...

Detroit Tigers worried about ability to retain David Price?

The Tigers are reportedly concerned about their ability to re-sign ace pitcher David Price when he becomes a free agent next year, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports: "Detroit is 9-1 when David Price starts, but while the Tigers would love to sign him, word is they aren't overwhelmingly confident they'll be able to keep him long-term. Not much has come out about their late-spring...

Tigers' pitching woes make Scherzer loss more lamentable

On Wednesday, the Detroit Tigers used reliever Alex Wilson as a starting pitcher in a 3-2 win over the Oakland A’s. Thursday night, Detroit started Buck Farmer, freshly called up from Triple-A, to start against the Angels and lost 12-2. This is quite a sobering change for a team that rolled out a rotation boasting three Cy Young Award winners — David Price, Max Scherzer...

Game 2015.49: Tigers at Angels

The Tigers exploded for 3 runs yesterday, which was enough to hold off the A’s for a 3-2 victory and series win. 4 runs in 3 games isn’t the way I would have called it, but a series win is a series win. This doesn’t do much, however, to dampen the loud concerns regarding this offense. I know I mentioned last week that the dearth of run production emanates from the 4 hole, but...

Watch: Miguel Cabrera's hidden ball trick effort good for laugh but not an out

Two-time AL MVP Miguel Cabrera tried and failed but importantly tried to pull one over on A's outfielder Billy Burns on Tuesday. After Tigers pitcher David Price tossed the ball to Cabrera at first, Cabrera gave chase as if the ball had gotten away. But nobody was fooled and Cabrera could only take a bow. Burns, Miggy and A's first base coach Tye Waller had a good chuckle and now...

Would YOU rather Wednesday: Would you rather have JV or V-Mart back at full strength for the rest of the season?

Currently the Tigers are missing two pretty big pieces from their offensive lineup as well as their pitching rotation. Starter Justin Verlander has been for the entire year up until this point with a triceps injury suffered in spring training. In his absence the Tigers as a staff have compiled a 3.64 ERA and 1.23 WHIP which is good for 9th and 8th overall in the MLB respectively...

VIDEO: Miguel Cabrera tries Little League fake…fails

Late Tuesday night, Miguel Cabrera tried that will work in dozens (hundreds?) of Little League games across the country this summer. Too bad for Miggy, A’s outfielder Billy Burns graduated from Little League about 15 years ago. Per usual, Miggy was able to laugh it off and even gave the dugout a bow for their response.

Tigers dealt first shutout of season in 4-0 loss to the Athletics

If the Tigers needed any further indication of how important Miguel Cabrera is to the lineup, they got it today. With Miggy out of the lineup to rest a ‘cranky ankle’ the Tigers promptly got swept 4-0 to begin their west coast road swing. It was also Detroit’s third straight loss after dropping the final two games to the Astros while only mustering four hits against A’s...

Inconsistency continues to plague the Tigers

Going into this week seemed like the perfect time to build on their play from last week and put up back-to-back winning weeks for the first time in awhile…well that didn’t happen. The Detroit Tigers went back to playing “bleh” baseball this week, the exact way they’ve been playing for most of the season after their incredibly hot start.  It has finally caught up to the...

Astros Turn First Triple Play In 11 Years, Beat Tigers 3-2 (Video)

Well you don’t see this every day. The Detroit Tigers appeared to have the Houston Astros on the ropes: runners on first and second, Ian Kinsler at the plate, and vaunted slugger Miguel Cabrera on deck. Fortunately for Astros third baseman Jonathan Villar, he was ready for the perfect ground ball. “I was calling it like, ‘Please give me a ground ball here, and I’ll go to...

Ian Kinsler smacked the ball over to Jonathan Villar at third, who stepped on the bag for out number one, fired it to Jose Altuve at second for out number two, who gunned it over to Chris Carter at first for out number three...

Shirts referring to Brad Ausmus as ‘dreamy’ appear in Tigers clubhouse (pic)

Detroit Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus widely is viewed as one of the better-looking managers in baseball, if not the handsomest.  And it appears there’s a member of the Tigers who believes he’s all that and more, as t-shirts mysteriously appeared in the team’s clubhouse that bore an image of Ausmus along with the word, “Dreamy,”...Read More The post Shirts referring to Brad...

PHOTO: Get your Brad Ausmus “Dreamy” t-shirt … or, ya know, don’t

Prior to Wednesday’s series finale against the Brewers, the Tigers clubhouse was adorned by t-shirts with a photo of Brad Ausmus and “Dreamy” below his mug.  Someone on Twitter said that Tigers hitting coach Wally Joyner ordered them. It’s good to see the team is still loose (I guess) after two straight to the second-worst team in the Major Leagues.  When asked about the...

Jose Iglesias on the Comeback Trail

Most players make it to Major League Baseball without a fully refined skillset. Some players make it to the majors with a particular skill so great it outweighs a lack of skills normally required to function at the major-league level. Sometimes, it is an electric fastball despite a lack of command or secondary pitches. For […]

Why Didn’t Brad Ausmus Leave Rajai Davis in Sunday Night’s Game?

After much deliberation over what went down during the Detroit Tigers’ frustrating 2-1 Sunday night loss to Kansas City, just one question remains unanswered … Not why Brad Ausmus pulled Miguel Cabrera for a pinch-runner. It backfired, obviously, in part because Davis did not even attempt a steal despite being on the bases for the next five batters. It’s also not why Ausmus...

Dave Dombrowski, Brad Ausmus Keep Setting Tigers’ Bullpen up to Fail

The Tigers led by three, with two outs in the bottom of the eighth, when things unraveled Wednesday night. Joba Chamberlain gave up a single, then another (a line shot Nick Castellanos said he should have caught), followed by a game-tying home run. Inexplicably, Chamberlain stayed out for three more batters. All three singled, driving home the go-ahead run in what became a 7-6 Detroit...
