Red Sox defeat Tigers 5-2, Advance to World Series

So I sit here, slowly drinking a glass of Johnnie Walker Black, thinking about the Tigers’ season. How it ebbed and flowed, from the highest highs to the lowest lows, sometimes within the same 9 innings. It occured to me that baseball is one of the most emotional things there is. Abject failure. Unbelievable, unthinkable […]

The Uncomfortable Conclusion of the Biogenesis Scandal

Quite a difference a few years makes, eh? In the mid 90s, PEDs were all but administered by teams themselves to their rapidly bulking players. The sport needed a revival; fans were upset about the strike in 1994 and many still hadn’t returned. Ratings were down, attendance was down, and the game wasn’t enjoying the […]

Detroit Tigers Plate More Runs Than Chicago White Stockings in Recent Base Ball Contest

In the game of baseball, above all, the goal is to score more runs than the other team. There are various ways to score runs — a single with a man on 3rd. A bases loaded walk. A 2 run double. A PED-assisted grand slam. These are common ways to score runs in Base Ball. […]

Why Suggesting The Tigers Use a Starter as the Closer is The Dumbest Thing You Could Say

Why Suggesting The Tigers Use a Starter as the Closer is The Dumbest Thing You Could Say

You know how you’re at a party, having a good time, having some drinks with friends? You’re all gathered around the nachos, plucking away at them like some corner musician plugs away at his balsa guitar with nylon strings. Making jokes. You’re in the zone. All of a sudden, you say something a little out […]

Tigers Playfully Dismiss Astros in Base Ball Contest

Ah, the Houston Astros. Baseball’s answer to the guy you know who never keeps a job but doesn’t get evicted, somehow. Somebody out there’s gotta be helping him get by, pay the bills, look like a real person. That person doesn’t exist for the venerable Astros, who are now 10-29 after a punchless performance in […]

Prince Fielder (and the Tigers) Crush Yankees on Opening Day

Opening Day. Ah, it’s like a holiday. Like Christmas. Like opening your presents in front of your mom and dad. Like getting something better than your jerk brother who always steals your football. What a jerk. Prince Fielder’s a present. He’s a big, hulking present, wrapped in gold sparkly wrapping and the coolest most expensive […]

Tigers sign Jose Valverde to minor league deal

Tigers sign Jose Valverde to minor league deal

Sources this morning indicated the Tigers and former closer Jose Valverde have reached an agreement on a minor league contract.     Personally, I don’t see this as a big deal because he’s not going to be immediately promoted (I assume) and if he’s recovered, he can probably help the team. Twitter is losing its […]

Tigers and Justin Verlander agree to contract extension through 2019 with vesting option for 2020

Sources have indicated the […]

Tigers Release Brennan Boesch, World Literally Stops on Axis

Earlier today, the Tigers released All-Star, Gold glove winning, perennial MVP candidate RF Brennan Boesch in a questionable, baffling move in an off season full of them. I couldn’t even type that with a straight face. Sorry. Is this move really worthy of an entire blog post? Maybe, maybe not. Who cares? It’s the internet, man. We […]
