Game 86 Lineups and Comments: Royals (37-46) @ Tigers (43-42)

Max Scherzer makes his first start in ten days. He was very good in his start against the Rays, and actually has made three good starts in a row, going at least six innings and giving up three earned runs or fewer in each start. He missed his last start with a slight hamstring injury, […]


The Detroit Tigers Have Won More Baseball Games Than They Have Lost

When you think of what makes a good baseball team you think of what makes a bad baseball team. Bad baseball players. Silly managing. An aloof appearance.

Game 82 Lineups and Comments: Twins (35-45) @ Tigers (39-42)

Say what you want about the Tigers first half of the season. Say what you want about obligatory numbers. Part two of the Detroit Tigers 2012 journey begins this evening.
