Tigers Splits: First and Second Half Pitching

In a season of positive memories for Detroit, there was one point in June (the 28th and 29th to be exact) that particularly stood out in my mind. Tigers pitching gave up 30 runs over a span of 2 games against the Mets. Rick Porcello, Daniel Schlereth, Phil Coke, Al Alburquerque, and David Purcey were […]

Tigers aquire Collin Balester from Washington

In return they sent Ryan Perry, the beleaguered right handed arm that, despite serving up the infamous Nelson Cruz grand slam in the 11th hour of the playoffs, I was still pretty bearish on. Perhaps a change of scenery was necessary for both Perry and Tiger fans. Balester, a 25 year old right hander himself, […]

Winter Meetings Close With a Bang, Just Not for Detroit

The morning began with Albert Pujols and CJ Wilson signing with the Angels, and the Rule 5 draft where nothing of importance happened (the Tigers lost Gustavo Nunez to Pittsburgh) Then everyone bolted from the Hilton Anatole faster than Usain. (I can’t take credit, Jason Beck used it in a reply to me on twitter […]

What $254 Million Means to the Fan

The irony that is Dallas…where the last time the Winter Meetings were held here Alex Rodriguez signed his bankrupting 10 year $252 million contract with the Texas Rangers and baseball people swore there would never be another contract of that magnitude. There couldn’t be. Well, the Winter Meetings in Dallas happened again and the mammoth […]

Recap: Day Three of the Winter Meetings

In what can be titled as The Most Boring Winter Meetings Ever…for the Tigers, the third full day was a little more eventful, but has still to this point resulted in talks and speculation. Gio Gonzalez trade rumors broke at about 1am eastern time and while there was a quick flurry of excitement, it was […]

Tigers making push for Gio Gonzalez

From @susanslusser on twitter who covers the Oakland A’s for the San Fransisco Chronical: I learned from multiple Detroit team sources tonight that the Tigers have strong interest in Gio Gonzalez and they probably would be willing to part with top prospect Jacob Turner, a right-handed starter, in any deal. To land Gonzalez, of course, […]

Recap: Day Two of the Winter Meetings

Monday was a slow day overall, with one minor trade rumor surfacing with the Mets. Most figured that Day Two would be a bit busier, but as it turns out the 2012 Winter Meetings for the Tigers could be an absolute “snorefest” according to Lynn Henning via Twitter. That’s basically it. Nothing happened other than […]

Recap: Day One of the Winter Meetings

The Tigers made a little noise on the first full day of the Winter Meetings at the Hilton Anatole by means of inquiring about Daniel Murphy of the Mets. The “scrappy” 26-year-old infielder who can play 1B, 2B, 3B, OF, and..bench. Before we get too excited, he’s basically Don Kelly with pop, which means that […]

Rosterbating with our Tigers

It’s been nearly two weeks since I wrote up anything for WW. In that week I finished a much needed vacation and launched a new business project that will start sometime next year. Both of those things prevented me from doing anything with the blog. Granted, this offseason is already 100% different than last year […]
