Tigers Trade Jacob Turner and Others Away for Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante

Didn’t really expect to see Turner’s trade value plummet THIS much but it looks like he is indeed headed to Miami for 2B Omar Infante and SP Anibal Sanchez. Obviously this will be updated as we learn more but for now the reaction is this: It’s a trade that benefits the team this year alone […]

Miguel Cabrera and his Proud 300

How do you quantify greatness…in baseball? The answer is actually simple. In baseball there is a certain threshold that separates good players from bad players and great players from good players.

Tigers Use Power (And Power) To Take Series From Angels

Baseball is fun again! The Tigers homered twice, got (gasp) more timely hitting, and the good Max Scherzer showed up as Detroit won for the 10th time in 12 games, 5-1, to take 3 of 4 from the once-scorching Angels, who scored 3 runs over the final 18 innings of the series after that 13 […]
