Tigers Hammer Punchless Nationals For Fifth Straight Win

The Detroit Tigers stayed hot on Wednesday afternoon – despite Miguel Cabrera being absent again – by tagging Gio Gonzalez for ten runs in three and a third innings, which proved enough for an effectively wild Justin Verlander in an 11-1 victory to complete a two game sweep of the Washington Nationals. Coming off his […]

Tigers Acquire Shortstop Jose Iglesias As Part of Three-Team Swap

With the possibility of a suspension to Jhonny Peralta looming in the not-so-distant future, GM Dave Dombrowski struck in the dark of the night like a cobra. A ninja cobra. In stripes.

Everything’s Coming Up Avila: Alex & Anibal Key Tigers 5-1 Win

Everything’s Coming Up Avila: Alex & Anibal Key Tigers 5-1 Win

After a tumultuous start to the Tigers first game against the Washington Nationals, kicked off by a triple from the best player in baseball who can’t legally celebrate his impressive bat with a Stroh’s (even if he’d actually heard of the classic old timey Detroit beer) Anibal Sanchez settled in for a solid, if not […]

Joe Who? The Detroit Tigers Do Not Need A Closer

Another day, another set of Tigers-related reliever rumors, but this time with a new wrinkle. According to various reports, the Texas Rangers, in desperate search for a bat and with bullpen pieces to spare, are willing to trade closer Joe Nathan.

Tigers Overcome Early Squanders and Ejections to Sweep Phillies

Tigers Overcome Early Squanders and Ejections to Sweep Phillies

Well, this series finale was certainly…eventful. Rick Porcello wasn’t at his best, but he still did a decent job and certainly deserved the win. The Phillies made a fair bit of decent contact off him, and for the early innings, it looked like that was going to make for a really tight game. In fact, […]

Game 104: Phillies (49-55) @ Tigers (58-45)

The Tigers go for the sweep this afternoon behind Rick Porcello, who is coming off a pretty strong start against the White Sox. He threw seven shutout innings, walking a season-high three and only striking out one, but he only gave up four hits. He’s never faced the Phillies outside of spring training, and only […]

Scherzer was […]

I'm forever blowing bubbles, pretty bubbles in the air.

Game 103: Phillies (49-54) @ Tigers (57-45)

Miguel Cabrera and Torii Hunter are both back in the lineup, Cabrera after dealing with a sore hip flexor for four days and Hunter after missing a game with a sore Achilles tendon due to tight dress shoes. The Tigers have gone 6-1 without Cabrera in the lineup. If Max Scherzer (14-1, 3.14 ERA) wins […]

Targeting the Trade Market: Who Could the Tigers Zero In On?

As the trade deadline rapidly approaches, a fanbase turns its lonely eyes to you Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski. The Tigers have made it known that they’re looking for relief pitching, and fans are left wondering “Who could the Tigers target?” Even though one could argue that it’s a seller’s market with five days to go […]

Fister was solid.

Fister and Avila Lead Tigers To Victory

Doug Fister went eight innings allowing only a single run on three hits and one walk, with six strikeouts, and outdueled Philadelplhia’s Cole Hamels, while Alex Avila drove in the Tigers’ two runs in the fifth inning to take a 2-1 lead they wouldn’t relinquish. More after the jump
