Price, Kinsler Push The Tigers Into The Division Series

A few thoughts on today’s 3-0 victory and the season as a whole: So I guess David Price was worth it after all. He was everything they could want and more today, taking a shutout into the eighth inning against a Minnesota team that has hammered away at Tigers pitching repeatedly. Ian Kinsler was worth […]

Cabrera Helps Tigers Overcome Meltdown, Preserve Division Lead

My goodness, this one didn’t go as planned. The Tigers won 4-3 in walkoff fashion, but only after blowing a 3-0 ninth inning lead. For eight innings, David Price was pitching a gem. He was virtually untouchable, in fact. He’d retired the last seven hitters in a row, he was cruising, his pitch count was […]

Bassitt Hounds Tigers In 2-0 White Sox Victory

The White Sox’s Chris Bassitt handcuffed the Tigers for 7.2 innings, allowing no runs on six hits, one walk and three strikeouts. The White Sox got all the offense they’d need in the second inning on a two-run Tyler Flowers homer as they rode their rookie starter to a 2-0 victory. Bassitt gave up a […]

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! Joakim Soria, the guy the Tigers gave up two of their top prospects for, is a back-end reliever with every bit the impressive track record as Joe Nathan and even Jim […]

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 […]
