Game 2015.128: Tigers at Blue Jays

Matt Boyd returns to Toronto, and takes on his former team, as does Anthony Gose. David Price is there, and not doubt will be renewing acquaintances, but we won’t see him pitching this series. Justin Verlander’s near no-hitter was a tough act to follow, but crafty veteran Randy Wolf did a pretty good job of it. He has now had two good outings, which is probably as much or more...

Is Yoenis Cespedes The Most Underrated Player in Baseball?

Yoenis Cespedes has been traded three times in a little over a year, spending time with the Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, and New York Mets in that span. You would think that this would signal that Yoesnis Cespedes is not that good, if teams are willing to trade him so quickly. Thinking this would be a mistake on your part, just like it was a mistake for the...

Kate Upton praises 'inspiring' Verlander after near no-hitter

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander came oh-so-close to notching his third-career no-hitter Wednesday night, but suffered understandable heartbreak when Los Angeles Angels catcher Chris Iannetta led off the ninth inning with a double. Verlander of course must be disappointed over how things played out, but still should be encouraged with his dominant performance in light of...

JV Reminds Detroit Baseball is Fun

The 2015 Detroit Tigers season will go down as a failure. A constant stream of faint hope drowned by a deluge of disappointment. At a point in the season when most of us are watching games with a detached interest, just passing the time until football season starts or classically “waiting ’til next year” Justin Verlander gave us a reason to care again. What might have been...

What if Justin Verlander figured it out?

A little over a month ago, Dave ran through his annual trade value rankings, and as he likes to do, after all the good bits, he wrote up the bad bit, addressing the game’s least-valuable players. Ranking third on his list was fallen Tigers ace Justin Verlander, whose contract is steady even when the pitching isn’t. Verlander ranked worse than Matt Kemp. Worse than Shin-Soo Choo...

How Yoenis Cespedes saved the Mets from themselves

It all seemed to be coming together for the Mets. It looked like they had just traded for the kind of impact bat their lineup so desperately needed in the form of Carlos Gomez and that he would propel the pitching laden Metropolitans to a division championship. And then this happened: This kind of gaffe seemed typical of the Mets of the past ten years. An all-star caliber player...

J.D. Martinez is a major bright spot in a disappointing season

The Detroit Tigers have not lived up to expectations this season. As of August 25, they are 17 games back of the Royals in the AL Central and 10 games back of the final wildcard spot. But that doesn’t even accurately represent how poor the team has played for the majority of the year. Since their 11-2 start, they’ve gone just 48-62, which is the one of the worst records in the...

Game 2015.123: Rangers at Tigers

Ian Kinsler continued to be hot, and hit a 2-out, 9th inning home run to save the Tigers from being shut out in back-to-back games. Randy Wolf really did quite a decent job, only giving up 3 earned runs in 7 innings. They could hardly have expected more. Wolf said he used his experience to keep the Tigers in the game. Scratch one tool off the list of things Ty Collns brings to the...

Tigers: Shane Greene season probably over with artery issue

Sunday, the Tigers’ 28-year old starter was diagnosed with an artery problem which is the probable cause of the numbness he’s experienced in his right hand. Clarification from Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand: Greene has an artery issue further up arm that’s creating aneurysm symptoms...

Several Tigers vocal about ballpark safety after fan struck by foul ball

After another fan was injured at a Major League Baseball game Friday night, some players are calling for action. In the eighth inning of the Texas Rangers-Detroit Tigers game at Comerica Park on Friday, a fan sitting behind the Tigers dugout was hit by a foul ball and taken away strapped to a chair with a neck brace. She was hospitalized, and the Tigers announced after the game that...

JABO: Rebuilding the Tigers… Or Not

Two weeks ago, the Detroit Tigers essentially fired long-time General Manager Dave Dombrowski. Despite four consecutive division titles — a streak that will end this year, of course — and a lot of success over the last decade, Dombrowski was unable to bring a championship back to Motown, and with their window closing and the team struggling, ownership decided to make a change...

Tigers Pitcher Daniel Norris Homers Off Jon Lester In First MLB At-Bat (Video)

It’s not very often that American League pitchers hit home runs, but what Daniel Norris did was even more peculiar. The Detroit Tigers rookie pitcher smacked a homer off Jon Lester in his very first major league at-bat Wednesday during their matchup with the Cubs in Chicago. Norris became the first pitcher hit a home run in his first at-bat since Tommy Milone in 2011 and the first...

Since she is a world-famous supermodel, Upton’s pregame experience was distinctly different than the one enjoyed by most folks, but this followed being forced to sit through a lengthy rain delay the previous...

The Detroit Tigers do not have a whole lot to hang their hats on this season. However, whether they win or lose Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs, Daniel Norris will have something to be proud of. With his two run shot in the second inning he became the first American League pitcher to hit a home run at Wrigley Field.So maybe it is not as big a deal since inter-league play...

Miguel Cabrera loses glove, still manages to record out

During the Tigers’ 10-8 win over the Cubs on Tuesday night, Miguel Cabrera showed off some of that defense that he’s…well, really not well-known for. Anibal Sanchez threw a pickoff throw to first, and Dexter Fowler slide into the bag safely…but Cabrera fumbled his glove off. The ball bounced off a wall by the dugout right to Cabrera, and he fired to second without a glove...

Detroit Tigers: Struggles continuing for Greene, Nesbitt

Shane Greene and Angel Nesbitt performed very poorly for the Detroit Tigers after their hot starts to the season. These poor performances have continued with the Toledo Mud Hens. Monday night, against the Gwinnett Braves (Atlanta’s AAA team), Greene threw 98 pitches but lasted just 3 2/3 innings and surrendered 5 hits and 4 earned runs. He was immediately relieved by Angel Nesbitt...

Miguel Cabrera caught without glove on for pickoff play (Video)

Catching someone sleeping on a pickoff play is usually a good thing. It’s not so good when the guy who’s sleeping is on defense. But that’s what happened with Miguel Cabrera. During the first inning of Tuesday’s Cubs-Tigers game, Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez threw over to first base in an attempt to pick off Dexter Fowler. Miggy was holding his glove in his throwing hand...
