Walkoff Wraps

Jays Complete Sweep Of Team That No Longer Cares

Alfredo Simon and the Tigers were rather predictably shelled as the Blue Jays completed a three game sweep with a 9-2 victory on Sunday. Simon continues to be an automatic loss when sent to the mound. His ERA has ballooned over 5 after giving up four home runs – to Josh Donaldson, Edwin Encarnacion, Kevin […]

Blue Jays 15, Tigers 1: Well, Glad That’s Over

Let’s go back… back in time. Well, back to yesterday, at least. Sometimes, as a fan, you know going into a series that your team is going to be up against it. You have that feeling, that inkling that this is going to be a long three days. You’re bereft of confidence and you’re steeling […]

Blue Jays Do What They Do, Hit Homers, Beat Tigers

Sometimes, as a fan, you know going into a series that your team is going to be up against it. You have that feeling, that inkling that this is going to be a long three days. You’re bereft of confidence and you’re steeling yourself for a beating. I felt like that before the Tigers kicked […]

Verlander Gives Tigers Reason For Hope In Season To Forget

As the Tigers stumble toward the finish of a season that almost certainly won’t end in October for the first time since 2010, it comes time to look for reasons to be optimistic about 2016. There are a number of them, but perhaps first and foremost among them is one that wouldn’t even have sniffed […]

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 […]

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 […]
