Your Ideas Suck, 2016 Detroit Tigers Edition

“The Tigers need to fire Al Avila!” That’s not happening. Not less than half a year after letting Dave Dombrowski go. Let’s move on, folks. “The Tigers need to sweep out all the underperforming players and get completely new ones!” This is ridiculous for many reasons. No one is going to generously decide to help […]

Just How Bad Is The Tigers’ Pitching?

Last night, Kyle Lobstein got hit around by the Twins, giving up six runs in an inning and a third and becoming the latest in a long line of Tigers starters to fail to post a quality start. It’s been the same story for most of the last month, as Justin Verlander excepted, Tigers starters […]

Ausmus Fiasco Caps Off Disappointing Year For Tigers Organization

As bad as the 2015 season has been on the field for the Detroit Tigers, things aren’t going much better for the franchise off the field, either. It all started with the swift firing of Dave Dombrowski (and yes, it was a firing) that saw him blindsided, his son being consoled by players in the […]

Tigers Show More Fight In Dugout Than On Field

Tigers Show More Fight In Dugout Than On Field

In case you missed it, there was a dustup in the Tigers dugout during tonight’s 7-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Between the top half and bottom half of the sixth inning, José Iglesias and James McCann exchanged heated words (here), with Iglesias shoving McCann and throwing his glove at him before Nick Castellanos […]

Crumbling Rotation The Real Reason Behind Tigers’ Continued Mediocrity

It was not long ago that the Detroit Tigers’ starting rotation was the class of the American League, if not all of baseball. We’re only two years removed from the days in which the Tigers could throw four high-end pitchers at any given team during a playoff series and Rick Porcello didn’t even have a […]

Could the Tigers Be in the Market for a Starter?

Just a few minutes ago, our old friend Jon Paul Morosi sent out this tweet regarding the Tigers and possible targets in advance of the July trade deadline: #Tigers having preliminary trade conversations aimed at acquiring a starting pitcher, source says. They sent Shane Greene to Triple-A today. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) June 12, 2015 […]

Bullpen Misconceptions: The Tigers Need More Than A 9th Inning Guy

I was watching MLB Network early Monday evening. This isn’t terribly out of the ordinary, and not just out of sheer amusement. In previewing the evening’s action, the Tigers came up, and it was said that part of the reason for their strong start to the season was something to the effect of “they finally […]

Joba Chamberlain Is Back, And That’s Not A Bad Thing

I have, for some odd reason, actually seen a bit of complaining about the Joba Chamberlain deal today. The opinions are undoubtedly influenced by his second half 4.97 ERA and repeated meltdowns in the postseason. Of course, in July, Chamberlain’s ERA was under 3 and plenty of people were clamoring for him to replace Joe […]
