Crumbling Rotation The Real Reason Behind Tigers’ Continued Mediocrity

Crumbling Rotation The Real Reason Behind Tigers’ Continued Mediocrity

It was not long ago that the Detroit Tigers’ starting rotation was the class of the American League, if not all of baseball. We’re only two years removed from the days in which the Tigers could throw four high-end pitchers at any given team during a playoff series and Rick Porcello didn’t even have a […]

Postgame: Reds 8, Tigers 4 (13)

A few thoughts (the first of which, I spent my entire night until 1:30 in the morning watching that?) The rain delay – which lasted over an hour – robbed the Tigers of David Price, which undoubtedly had an affect on the outcome. Of course, it also robbed the Reds of Johnny Cueto, but seeing as […]

Could the Tigers Be in the Market for a Starter?

Just a few minutes ago, our old friend Jon Paul Morosi sent out this tweet regarding the Tigers and possible targets in advance of the July trade deadline: #Tigers having preliminary trade conversations aimed at acquiring a starting pitcher, source says. They sent Shane Greene to Triple-A today. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) June 12, 2015 […]

Clippers (27-28) @ MudHens (25-30)

The Columbus Clippers roll into town to take on the Toledo Mudhens and their ace, Justin Verlander. Verlander will be making his second (and hopefully last) rehab appearance as he works his way back from a triceps strain he suffered during Spring Training. Clippers Lindor 6 Martinez 4 Aguilar 3 Walters 7 Ramsey 8 Urshela […]

Game 32: Twins (18-14) at Tigers (19-13), 7:08 PM

Don’t look now but if the Twins beat the Tigers tonight, the two teams will have the exact same record. Jose Iglesias is tentatively in the Detroit lineup, though the Tigers want to see him run before setting it in stone. MINNESOTA SP: Kyle Gibson 1. Brian Dozier (2B) 2. Torii Hunter (RF) 3. Joe Mauer (1B) 4. Trevor Plouffe (3B) 5. Kurt Suzuki (C) 6. Kennys […]

Belated Series Wrap: Tigers @ White Sox

The Tigers managed to avoid a sweep at the hands of the struggling White Sox, escaping the Windy City with a 4-1 victory over José Quintana. The Tigers got another pretty strong start from fill-in starter Kyle Lobstein; The Lobster went 7.2 IP, allowing just an unearned run on 5 hits and 2 walks. The […]

Tigers (17-10) @ White Sox (9-14)

After receiving encouraging news about Justin Verlander—the right hander has been given the go-ahead to resume his throwing program—the Tigers look to shake off the malaise of a foggy, damp, dreary night in Chicago and get back to their winning ways. Alfredo Simon (31.2 IP, 1.3 fWAR) will look to get the team back on […]

Tigers (17-9) @ White Sox (8-14)

The first place Tigers roll into town for their first visit to the hapless Chicago White Sox. The White Sox have struggled lately, dropping 7 of their last 10; meanwhile, the Tigers are 6-4 in that span. The Tigers will send Shane Greene (3-1, 4.60 ERA) to oppose the White Sox and Jeff Samardzija (1-2, […]

Bullpen Misconceptions: The Tigers Need More Than A 9th Inning Guy

I was watching MLB Network early Monday evening. This isn’t terribly out of the ordinary, and not just out of sheer amusement. In previewing the evening’s action, the Tigers came up, and it was said that part of the reason for their strong start to the season was something to the effect of “they finally […]
