Tigers Add Joba Chamberlain, Do Little To Alleviate Bullpen Concerns

The Tigers signed Joba Chamberlain to an incentive-laden 1 year, $2.5 million deal today. He’ll probably slot into the bullpen somewhere around the 6th or 7th inning, possibly as the primary right-handed bridge to ideal setup man Bruce Rondon. This could work, of course. It’s a low risk move, the finances aren’t bad, it’s a […]

Waiting Patiently For The Moves That Actually Improve The Tigers

Does David Dombrowski know something that the rest of us don’t? That’s the only explanation I can possibly come up with for the Doug Fister trade. From a strictly baseball perspective, throwing the financial side of things out the window, I can understand if you think trading Prince Fielder for Ian Kinsler was a net […]

Scherzer and Cabrera Capture Postseason Awards In Landslide Votes

Scherzer and Cabrera Capture Postseason Awards In Landslide Votes

With minor editorializing! On Wednesday, Max Scherzer was named the recipient of the AL Cy Young award, beating out Texas’ Yu Darvish and Seattle’s Hisashi Iwakuma in a landslide vote, taking all but two first place votes; he placed second on one ballot and third on another to finish with 203 points.

How it ebbed and flowed, from the highest highs to the lowest lows, sometimes within the same 9 innings. It occured to me that baseball is one of the most emotional things there is. Abject failure. Unbelievable, unthinkable […]

Can Max save our season?

ALCS Game 6: Tigers (2-3) @ Red Sox (3-2)

It’s do or die tonight, as the Tigers face off against the Red Sox in game 6 of the ALCS. The Tigers send Max Scherzer (2-0, 2.25 ERA) to the mound to extend their season, while the Red Sox counter with Clay Buchholz (0-0, 6.17 ERA). If anyone can give the Tigers a chance to […]

Rain rain, go away.

ALCS Game 5: Red Sox (2-2) @ Tigers (2-2)

The Tigers send Anibal Sánchez back to the mound while the Red Sox send out Jon Lester in a rematch of the game 1 starters. The Tigers took game 1, but Sánchez was as wild as he was unhittable, walking 6 in 6 hitless innings (to go with 12 strikeouts). Lester was also good, allowing […]
