Position Battle Thoughts as February Ends

Today is Leap Day, I don’t really know if that means anything other than a meme people in social media can exploit on and endless loop throughout the day and thoroughly annoy us all. I do wonder if people who are born on these rare February 29th’s celebrate their birthday’s on the 28th or 1st […]

Now Taking Orders for Miguel Cabrera’s “¿Si or No?” T-Shirts

Now Taking Orders for Miguel Cabrera’s “¿Si or No?” T-Shirts

We at Walkoff Woodward are proud to say we actually have designed the Miguel Cabrera “¿Si or No? Si, Motherf#$@&*!” T-shirts that we promised you last week.

Caesar’s Amusement: Rather Have Whitaker

Caesar’s Amusement: Rather Have Whitaker

The first real heat of the year has enveloped the Florida Key’s like a musky blanket. I’m not sure if I like it or not, but I guess that’s to be expected when you’re dealing with Florida. Still it’s February, granted late February, and I guess there’s a reason so many teams start Spring Training […]

How Many Bad Games Will Rick Porcello Pitch in 2012?

Yesterday, I looked at Justin Verlander and his year by year breakdown of non-quality starts; games he pitched in where he gave up four earned runs or more.

Our goal here is not to break news or write about gossip… wait, what …anyway, I couldn’t resist noting this story from Hardball Talk (via Tom Gage of the Detroit News). Tony LaRussa in Tigers camp. Said his two goals are to get Leyland “to eat tofu and stop smoking.” To which Leyland replied: “I […]

How Many Bad Games will Justin Verlander Pitch in 2012?

Justin Verlander isn’t exactly the center of attention these days. That national scrutiny goes to Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera thanks to the controversy that goes along with a nine year contract and an all-star switching positions. Perhaps that’s a good thing for the reining A.L. Cy Young and MVP winner. Verlander came into 2011 […]

The Battle for the Final Bullpen Spot

The Battle for the Final Bullpen Spot

As spring training finally gets underway, the Tigers find themselves with an Opening Day roster that’s mostly set. There’s been a lot of coverage on the competition for fifth starter, second baseman, and fourth outfielder (or starting left fielder, if you believe that Delmon Young will get most of the playing time at DH). Dave […]
