Tigers Nail Down Outfield, But Trades Open Big Rotation Questions

The Tigers finally made the big move that has felt inevitable this offseason, swapping Rick Porcello for Yoenis Cespedes – essentially – and then flipping Eugenio Suarez to the Reds for Alfredo Simon – essentially. These deals kind of go together, but we’ll do them separately first. Although upon hearing about the Cespedes trade, I said […]

Today In Rumormongering: Is David Price Really Being Shopped?

So today, we have unnamed sources telling both Bless You Boys and the Detroit News’s Tony Paul that the Tigers are still talking to Max Scherzer, and they’re also willing to take calls about David Price. Let’s break this down into two parts… First, I’m hesitant to make too much of reports that a team is […]

Tigers Lock Down VMart (And Little Victor) For Four More Years

Roughly one day after stating re-signing Victor Martinez was the Tigers’ top offseason priority, Dave Dombrowski did just that, inking the 35-year-old DH to a four year, $68 million contract. Martinez will be 39 at the end of the deal (he won’t turn 40 until December 2018). With an AAV of $17 million per year, […]

The Postmortem: Fix Your %#*^$(# Bullpen, Dave Dombrowski

It’s hard to see 2014 as anything other than a step back for the Detroit Tigers. The 2013 team was the best of the last four division champions. They were a few ill-advised pitches away from taking two games in Boston. If they took that second game, I suspect they close out that series and […]

And That’s All She Wrote: Orioles 2, Tigers 1

And so, another year, another ending short of a ring, and once again, the Tigers can’t seem to beat anyone in the postseason except the A’s and the Yankees. If you’re looking for an angry rant, you’ll have to look elsewhere, because that’s just not my style. I don’t go much beyond snark and polite […]

ALDS Game 3: Orioles (2-0) @ Tigers (0-2), 3:45 PM

The series shifts to Detroit and the Tigers find themselves with their backs to the wall. Needless to say, this is what they got David Price for. Price has been inconsistent since coming to Detroit, but he can still win the hearts of Tigers fans everywhere with a good start today. His postseason stats aren’t […]

Bullpen Implosion Leaves Us With More Questions Than Answers

I’m not going to talk about the game. You’ve already seen it. And if you haven’t, you will. I have some questions heading into the offday: • Where the hell has Al Alburquerque gone? He’s been one of the team’s most reliable relievers when used—and yet Ausmus has hardly used him. “Everyday” Al has thrown […]

Game 2: Tigers (0-1) @ Orioles (1-0)

Here’s hoping today’s game goes better than yesterday’s! Tigers Justin Verlander (R) 1. Ian Kinsler (R) 2B 2. Torii Hunter (R) RF 3. Miguel Cabrera (R) 1B 4. Victor Martinez (S) DH 5. J.D. Martinez (R) LF 6. Nick Castellanos (R) 3B 7. Alex Avila (L) C 8. Andrew Romine (S) SS 9. Rajai Davis […]

Tigers forget how to play in the 8th, fall to Orioles 12-3

Through seven innings, this was a pretty good game. The Tigers were down by a run when the 8th inning started…when it ended they were down by 8. I don’t even know how to explain what happened other than to say that if you have watched more than 5 games all year just take everything […]

ALDS Game 1: Tigers (0-0) @ Orioles (0-0)

Well, here we are once again, the playoffs. Raise your hand if you never had a doubt we would end up here. Ok…I see some hands…YOU ARE ALL LIARS!!! The Tigers team has at times looked like the most dominating team in the American League and at others, looked like a team that didn’t have […]

ALDS Q&A With Camden Depot’s Pat Holden

So how is the other side feeling with the first pitch of the AL Division Series just a few hours away? Pat Holden of ESPN SweetSpot’s Orioles affiliate Camden Depot was kind enough to take the time to answer some questions about the Orioles, their strengths, their weaknesses, and other things to look out for in […]
