Soria did a decent job in Motown, but with his team’s playoff chances waning, the free-agent-to-be was destined to […]

Game 2015.99: Tigers at Devil Rays

Yes, I know they are just the Rays now. But I reject the name change. All the Tiger brass are in Tampa to huddle together and figure out what to do.
