Tigers Continue Mastery Of Royals Amidst Controversy

In a rather odd turn of events, the Detroit Tigers squeaked out a 3-2 victory over Kansas City on Saturday. A few thoughts… The turning point in this game was unquestionably in the bottom of the sixth. Salvador Perez had singled and Eric Hosmer had doubled to set up second and third with one out […]

The Curious Case of Joakim Soria

The Tigers’ bullpen might be what keeps the team from a fourth consecutive division title. With an assist from manager Brad Ausmus, of course!

Assorted Thoughts As Ausmus, Carrera, And Nathan Do What They Do Best

The Tigers were going to lose. Then they were going to win. Then they lost 4-3. Some assorted thoughts: Hoo boy. Well, let’s start at the end. Joe Nathan walked Trevor Plouffe with one out. Kurt Suzuki followed. He hit a ball hard to center that was a sure bet to drop in front of […]

Tigers Eke Out A Wild One In the Twin Cities

The Tigers jumped out to a 6-0 lead on the hapless Minnesota Twins. With reigning Cy Young winner, Max Scherzer, on the mound, it should have been a cakewalk but was anything but. In the fifth, Scherzer was touched up for a massive solo homer by Oswaldo Arcia. An inning later, the Twins tacked on […]

Tigers Pick Off Dyson (and Royals) To Move Into First Place Tie

It felt very much like a playoff game, and the line between success and failure is so thin in the playoffs, so it’s rather appropriate that the biggest play of this game was probably a pickoff play. Jarrod Dyson was caught leaning too far off second in a wild ninth inning as the Tigers beat […]
