As baseball games go, this one could be the cat’s pajamas.
Doug Fister looked more like the Doug Fister we remember from the second half of the 2011 season, and the Tigers’ offense drove in six of their seven runs with two outs on the way to a 7-2 victory. Miguel Cabrera continues to abuse baseballs; in tonight’s game, he clubbed one 454 feet to dead […]

I made a bird reference. Just wondering if you noticed. Also, welcome to the second half, America. You’re on the clock.
In late June, the Tigers organizational hitting instructor, Toby Harrah, joined the team when they visited his home state to play a three game series against the Texas Rangers. When they left for Tampa on the 28th of June, Harrah jumped on the departing plane and he hasn’t left. In fact, as Jason Beck explained […]

Fielder, and not Justin Verlander who once hit a home run over the Green Monster in Fenway Park during batting practice, is the second Tiger in as many nights to bring the organization some All-Star hardware. On Monday night Prince Fielder out-blasted Toronto’s Jose Bautista 12-7 in the final round of the 2012 Home Run […]
In which we attempt to show you how many feet Principal Fielder hits baseballs this evening. Follow along and comment, young internet fans. He won the Derbyathon in 2009 for the National League. Now we can shill for him to win the title of “the person who hits baseballs the furthest” as a member of […]
With apologies to Jose Valverde, who has induced us all into a mass panic with his 9th inning anti-heroics, and therefore must work his way back into the hearts of traditional and sabermetric fans alike, there are four members of the Detroit Tigers bullpen that deserve significant recognition as the Tigers enter the 2012 All-Star […]
