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 […]

Bassitt Hounds Tigers In 2-0 White Sox Victory

The White Sox’s Chris Bassitt handcuffed the Tigers for 7.2 innings, allowing no runs on six hits, one walk and three strikeouts. The White Sox got all the offense they’d need in the second inning on a two-run Tyler Flowers homer as they rode their rookie starter to a 2-0 victory. Bassitt gave up a […]

The Curious Case of Joakim Soria

The Tigers’ bullpen might be what keeps the team from a fourth consecutive division title. With an assist from manager Brad Ausmus, of course! Joakim Soria, the guy the Tigers gave up two of their top prospects for, is a back-end reliever with every bit the impressive track record as Joe Nathan and even Jim […]

Tigers Eke Out A Wild One In the Twin Cities

The Tigers jumped out to a 6-0 lead on the hapless Minnesota Twins. With reigning Cy Young winner, Max Scherzer, on the mound, it should have been a cakewalk but was anything but. In the fifth, Scherzer was touched up for a massive solo homer by Oswaldo Arcia. An inning later, the Twins tacked on […]
