I wrote a brief reaction post as the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings were happening on Friday night. As I was writing it and watching the game, I fully expected Justin Verlander’s no-hitter to happen. I wasn’t 90% sure or 95% sure he would throw it, I was 100% sure. With one out and Josh […]
I’m sitting here and it’s the eighth inning. I’m thinking to myself, what on earth am I supposed to write that is so different than 100 other people who are writing a few jumbled paragraphs just like myself and hoping that they get to publish their clever headline as soon as Justin Verlander rings up […]

The Tigers will look to get back to .500 today with Doug Fister on the mound. He has a 0.54 ERA in 3 starts, but is still looking for his first win of the season. Lineups are after the jump…
I don’t know why, but I stumbled over to Reddit this morning and found a very interesting link to a thread that had images from the Sporting News in 1946 and 1947. They were baseball stadium sketches by Gene Mack, and I thought some of you readers would get a kick out of Mack’s take […]
The ham-handed Minnesota Twinkies entered Wednesday night’s game against the Tigers as the most pitiful offense in the American League. In fact, arguably, they’ll enter Thursday’s game that way, too, but for at least one night they were pretty solid. The Tigers were not and neither was one very important abdominal muscle.
