Cue up the Thin Lizzy and make use of your make-believe neuralyzers – the Tigers are back in town and nobody wants to remember the spring cleaning beat down the team received in LA. In years past, the best series hang over cure would probably be a home series against the Royals, who would be welcomed [...]
First pitch of Game 4 was supposed to be thrown by Max Scherzer around 8:07 p.m. ET on Wednesday night. Due to inclement weather in the area, first pitch of Game 4 will now come at 4:07 p.m. ET on Thursday prevening. This game could’ve been played tonight. The rain didn’t start until 9:11 p.m. [...]
The Tigers go for the sweet sweep of the New York Yankees Wednesday night at Comerica Park. Brooms aren’t allowed in the stadium, but they’re out of the storage closets across America, ready for use on the old, flailing and decrepit Jankees.

As was the theme for plenty of the Tigers’ losses during the regular season, the bats didn’t swing well enough in the first of potentially three road games, leaving Anibal Sanchez and the rest of pitchers (including reliever, one-pitch wonder Rick Porcello) out to dry in Game 3 of the ALDS, 2-0.
Anibal Sanchez takes the ball and hopefully a broom to the Oakland Athletics, who may still be stewing over Al Alburquerque’s sluttish ways with the baseball in Game 2′s wild loss. When you let an error, deep bullpen guy and Don Kelly beat you, it could be hard to recover. Luckily for the A’s, they are back [...]
It takes a whole lot to get worried when Justin Verlander is on the rubber. After Coco Crisp took him deep on the fourth pitch of the game, the fifth leadoff HR JV has allowed this season (and third when pitching on national television), I have to admit to thinking for a brief moment that [...]
The Tigers played very much like a team that just celebrated a division title the night before — listless, and without a handful of its regulars listed in the lineup.
The Tigers clinched the division last night, so this penultimate game of the regular season means nothing more than the team simply readying themselves for the ALDS on Saturday. As little-to-zero pressure and meaning these final two games have, I’ll still contend it’s important for the Tigers to keep the “momentum” going. Triple Crown protected [...]
