The Tigers Made Another Left Turn on Sunday: This Weeks Detroit Free Press Column is Live

So, I wrote about how the Tigers turned the corner (again) with their win on Sunday. I thought it would be an appropriate topic given the reaction that I saw from multiple outlets in the aftermath of that five run tenth inning. It’s funny, I keep returning back to the word “expectations” when I write […]

Tigers Support Anarchy In Crippling Defeat of Indians

Baseball is a game of chance. Every pitch. Every at bat. Every fly ball. Players on the field take a gamble every time the ball is in play. Certain situations beg for certain reactions. Some of the decisions are more costly than other. Some of the time these games are boring as all hell. Then […]

Game 108: Indians @ Tigers

Max Scherzer takes the hill for the Tigers in today’s finale. He’s coming off a loss in Boston, giving up 5 runs in 6.1 innings, although he did pitch better than that line would suggest. He also authored the only win the Tigers have against the Indians at Progressive Field, with 2 runs in seven […]

This is a total Jim Leyland move. Dave Cameron of Fangraph’s will […]

Tigers Master Indians, Paint Them Red, Leave Them for Dead

It really is funny when supposedly “good” teams score runs. Not funny as in “ha-ha” funny, but funny as in “that’s weird” funny. Although, I admit, it is a bit “ha-ha” funny as well. This isn’t what I’m talking about though. Focus! Suddenly, you hear people employ a certain phrase, in this case the phrase […]

Has Delmon Young Been Ousted As An Everyday Player? Speculations!

The news out of Detroit on this fine Friday revolves around the activation of Andy Dirks from the Disabled List and subsequent dismissal of one Donald Kelly. Upon this news going public, I was bombarded with emails and tweets (well not so many tweets thankfully) about the absolute horror that Kelly was gone and not […]
