Don’t Expect to See Victor Martinez this Year

Don’t Expect to See Victor Martinez this Year

On Monday, the Tigers reported that C/1B/DH Victor Martinez had microfracture surgery and had repairs to both the medial and lateral meniscus in his left knee the Friday before. “I don’t want to say it was a surprise,” Dave Dombrowski told the Associated Press. “We knew it was a possibility.” All of the injuries happened […]

Fielder’s Contract is Financially Fiscal

Fielder’s Contract is Financially Fiscal

Bill Shea over at Crain’s Detroit Business published an excellent article Sunday night explaining how the Detroit Tigers can cover the Prince Fielder contract. Rather than just link it on Twitter (which I still did, and you should click the link and read the full piece) I felt like pulling a few of the excerpts […]

New Aussie Reliever Signed; Nightmares of Brad Thomas Return

I haven’t seen an official announcement but apparently the Tigers signed an Australian reliever, Warwick Saupold, this week. I know nothing about him, and neither do you, but he pitched extremely well in the Australian Baseball League last season for the Perth Heat.

Miguel Cabrera Vs. Third Base

Among other significant changes to the Detroit Tigers 2012 season is the reality that Miguel Cabrera will probably be moving to third base on a full time basis, something he hasn’t done full time since 2007. There are a lot of concerns, opinions, and criticisms out there, of course, but the reality of his experience […]

Some exquisite thoughts on the new Prince of Detroit

Some exquisite thoughts on the new Prince of Detroit

Okay, I guess I’ve had a few hours to digest what happened yesterday. It originally started on a high note as I confirmed my work schedule so that starting Friday I can get a much needed five day vacation. When I first found out about Prince signing with Detroit I had been taking a break […]

Rosterbating with Prince

I apologize in advance for Rosterbating, but I have to. It’s a reflex that I can’t control right now. So actually, I don’t apologize. Onward! Traditionally defensive players are valued on Jim Leyland’s clubs, so he’s going to need to go from three packs a day, to five. The Tigers weren’t very good in that […]

Ninja Dave and the Giant First Basemen

Ninja Dave and the Giant First Basemen

Clad with a thin black pen in his hand and a stealthy ninja mask covering , David Dombrowski hung up the phone, chuckled evilly and took a bite out of his Hot N’ Ready. “Take that, naysayers.” He muttered through a collection of pepperoni cheese and jalapeno ranch sauce. That is at least how I […]

Extending Max Scherzer

Extending Max Scherzer

MLB Trade Rumors just looked a possible Max Scherzer extension and highlighted a few really good points: 1)      While both parties avoided arbitration with a $3.75MM contract the other day that may not be the end of the contract talks since clubs generally start extending contracts now. 2)      Last year 24 players signed extensions between […]
