Walkoff Wraps

Mariners 11, Tigers 9: Yeah, It’s Probably Time To Sell

The Detroit Tigers still have several days to make up their minds on their trade strategy. In that sense, there’s an urgency, but really no backbreaking rush to make a decision. But a few more games like this will make the decision very easy, and frankly, if we’re being realistic, the decision should already be […]

Twins 8, Tigers 6: Disaster in the Land of a Thousand Bullpen Meltdowns

Well, that was bad. Let’s try to sort through this. Justin Verlander was great. The offense scored plenty of runs. J.D. Martinez hit an impressive opposite field homer, Yoenis Cespedes hit a three run shot, it was 6-0 in the 8th and 6-1 in the 9th. So why are we angry? Well, let’s start in […]

Postgame: Reds 8, Tigers 4 (13)

A few thoughts (the first of which, I spent my entire night until 1:30 in the morning watching that?) The rain delay – which lasted over an hour – robbed the Tigers of David Price, which undoubtedly had an affect on the outcome. Of course, it also robbed the Reds of Johnny Cueto, but seeing as […]

Tigers Roll in Home Opener, Defeat Twins, Run Out of Pork Rinds

The Tigers are an intriguing, mysterious team this year, with more uncertainty than in years past. The Tigers’ flaws, particularly the bullpen, seem magnified. 14 of 31 MLB experts overwhelmingly picked the Indians to win the division (with only eight picking the Tigers and six taking the White Sox). Fan expectations seem to fluctuate between […]

The voice of the turtle!

Tigers Clobber O’s in Spring Opener

For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. — Song of Solomon, 2:11-12 The Tigers opened their Grapefruit League season with a 15-2 thrashing of […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Price, Kinsler Push The Tigers Into The Division Series

A few thoughts on today’s 3-0 victory and the season as a whole: So I guess David Price was worth it after all. He was everything they could want and more today, taking a shutout into the eighth inning against a Minnesota team that has hammered away at Tigers pitching repeatedly. Ian Kinsler was worth […]

Cabrera Helps Tigers Overcome Meltdown, Preserve Division Lead

My goodness, this one didn’t go as planned. The Tigers won 4-3 in walkoff fashion, but only after blowing a 3-0 ninth inning lead. For eight innings, David Price was pitching a gem. He was virtually untouchable, in fact. He’d retired the last seven hitters in a row, he was cruising, his pitch count was […]
