The Present And Future Of The Tigers With Price

After I spent all afternoon on Twitter doubting the Tigers’ chances of getting David Price, the Tigers did, indeed, get David Price. A few thoughts on what that means for the team both now and in the future: 1. Max Scherzer is gone next year. I think this was true no matter what, but the […]

The Price Is Right: Tigers Land Rays Ace in Deadline Blockbuster

Stealth GM Dave Dombrowski struck with just minutes to go before the non-waiver trade deadline, landing Tampa ace David Price in a three-team trade. The trade involved Tampa, Seattle and Detroit, and unfolded with Detroit getting Price from Tampa, Tampa getting Drew Smyly, Willy Adames, and Nick Franklin, and Seattle getting Austin Jackson. The dominoes […]

Defense, Bullpen Flounder As Tigers Pounded By White Sox

Scherzer, Tigers Rally Past Angels

This wasn’t quite the pitchers duel we anticipated, but Max Scherzer lived up to his billing as the Tigers came from behind to beat the Angels 6-4. Scherzer stumbled in the fifth, giving up three runs, including a two run single by Kole Calhoun. With the Tigers up against Garrett Richards and an improved Angels […]
