Simon, Tigers try to make it two straight over Astros

Although they were riding the best 41-game start in franchise history heading into the series opener against the Detroit Tigers, the Houston Astros weren't able to put an end to their woes at Comerica Park. They could be turning to the right pitcher Friday (6 p.m. pregame, 7:08 first pitch on FOX Sports Detroit) in Collin McHugh, who has one of MLB's longest road unbeaten streaks...

Shirts referring to Brad Ausmus as ‘dreamy’ appear in Tigers clubhouse (pic)

Detroit Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus widely is viewed as one of the better-looking managers in baseball, if not the handsomest.  And it appears there’s a member of the Tigers who believes he’s all that and more, as t-shirts mysteriously appeared in the team’s clubhouse that bore an image of Ausmus along with the word, “Dreamy,”...Read More The post Shirts referring to Brad...

Detroit Tigers: Can they recover vs. Houston?

After the near embarrassment that was the series against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Detroit Tigers will welcome the best team in the American League to Comerica Park, the Houston Astros, for a 4 game series. Wait…….what?! You read that right, folks. At 27-14 the Astros have more wins than any other team in baseball, a complete reversal of the Astros of recent years. Typically...

PHOTO: Get your Brad Ausmus “Dreamy” t-shirt … or, ya know, don’t

Prior to Wednesday’s series finale against the Brewers, the Tigers clubhouse was adorned by t-shirts with a photo of Brad Ausmus and “Dreamy” below his mug.  Someone on Twitter said that Tigers hitting coach Wally Joyner ordered them. It’s good to see the team is still loose (I guess) after two straight to the second-worst team in the Major Leagues.  When asked about the...

Detroit Tigers: Victor Martinez put on 15 day disabled list

Victor Martinez Victor Martinez of the Detroit Tigers has been placed on the disabled list for a minimum of fifteen days with inflammation in his left knee.

PHOTO: Kate Upton, Justin Verlander were kissing in St. Louis

Remember when Justin Verlander called out the “haters” for picking on him for not rehabbing his achy wing 24/7?  Like anyone, JV deserves his free time and what he does in his free time is his business.  His business happens to be making out with girlfriend Kate Upton in the middle of St. Louis this past weekend. The Tigers were in town visiting the Cardinals and McBoobs was on...

Game 2015.40: Brewers at Tigers

(doesn’t he look injured in the pic above?) Victor Martinez and his inability to hit left handed (against right handed pitching) has been the most popular Tiger topic as of late. He’s in a massive slump (let’s hope it’s a slump), and looked downright awful in two key late inning game-tying/go-ahead situations over the past two nights. He weakly grounded out to 3rd on Sunday...

Jose Iglesias on the Comeback Trail

Most players make it to Major League Baseball without a fully refined skillset. Some players make it to the majors with a particular skill so great it outweighs a lack of skills normally required to function at the major-league level. Sometimes, it is an electric fastball despite a lack of command or secondary pitches. For […]

MLB Week 6 Recap: Miggy hits No. 400, Marlins fire Redmond

Some Days You’re The Tiger Trainer, Some Days You’re The Meat

Given that currently the Detroit Tigers are one of the best teams in the American League, at least via record, probably losing two of three to them, including one in extra innings, isn’t so bad.  The Cardinals are finding stronger measuring sticks than the Reds and Brewers and they aren’t being found completely wanting, which would [...]

Detroit Tigers pitcher Shane Greene says he's 'ready to go'

Detroit Tigers starter Shane Greene is expected to make his next start as scheduled, despite a scare with a nerve issue in his pitching hand last week. Greene will throw a light bullpen session Monday in Detroit to prepare for his next start on Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Miguel Cabrera takes one step closer to immortality

The potential career hitting numbers for Miguel Cabrera are absolutely incredible. When at age 32, your numbers almost perfectly mirror the likes of an all-time great like Hank Aaron, you know you’re special. And at this pace, Cabrera could truly go down as one of the best hitters the game has ever seen and possibly the greatest right handed hitter ever. Miguel Cabrera hit...

Game 2015.37: Tigers at Cardinals

So are the Tigers (in other words Miguel Cabrera) over their night game funk? It certainly seems like it after last night. On the other hand, other than Gose and Cespedes the bats seemed to be full of NyQuil until the 7th inning, so maybe it was more a St. Louis Blowpen issue than kicking the night-game stupor. At any rate, it’s incredible how often that scenario happens: Cabrera...

Why Didn’t Brad Ausmus Leave Rajai Davis in Sunday Night’s Game?

After much deliberation over what went down during the Detroit Tigers’ frustrating 2-1 Sunday night loss to Kansas City, just one question remains unanswered … Not why Brad Ausmus pulled Miguel Cabrera for a pinch-runner. It backfired, obviously, in part because Davis did not even attempt a steal despite being on the bases for the next five batters. It’s also not why Ausmus...
