Tigers Lock Down VMart (And Little Victor) For Four More Years

Roughly one day after stating re-signing Victor Martinez was the Tigers’ top offseason priority, Dave Dombrowski did just that, inking the 35-year-old DH to a four year, $68 million contract. Martinez will be 39 at the end of the deal (he won’t turn 40 until December 2018). With an AAV of $17 million per year, […]

The Postmortem: Fix Your %#*^$(# Bullpen, Dave Dombrowski

It’s hard to see 2014 as anything other than a step back for the Detroit Tigers. The 2013 team was the best of the last four division champions. They were a few ill-advised pitches away from taking two games in Boston. If they took that second game, I suspect they close out that series and […]

ALDS Game 3: Orioles (2-0) @ Tigers (0-2), 3:45 PM

The series shifts to Detroit and the Tigers find themselves with their backs to the wall. Needless to say, this is what they got David Price for. Price has been inconsistent since coming to Detroit, but he can still win the hearts of Tigers fans everywhere with a good start today. His postseason stats aren’t […]

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 […]

So how is the other side feeling with the first pitch of the AL Division Series just a few hours away? Pat Holden of ESPN SweetSpot’s Orioles affiliate Camden Depot was kind enough to take the time to answer some questions about the Orioles, their strengths, their weaknesses, and other things to look out for in […]

Bassitt or basset?

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 […]
