Austin Jackson’s New Approach At The Dish

Austin Jackson’s New Approach At The Dish

Last year, when Austin Jackson was lighting up the end of August/beginning of September, Tigers’ broadcasters Mario Impemba and Rod Allen could not stop raving about the second-year hitter being the team’s fire-starter. Of course, the easy joke when he’d strike out — and it was a lot — was that he was just fanning […]

Tigers 13 Red Sox 12: Detroit Sends Memo to the Rest of Baseball: We Will Kill All of Your Pitchers.

The Detroit Tigers came from behind twice to tie the game before finally nailing the Red Sox coffin shut in the bottom of the 11th inning, in what was arguably the most exciting game in Comerica Park since Magglio Ordonez sent the team to the World Series in 2006. In a game full of heroes […]

Game Thread 3: Boston @ Detroit, 1:05pm

Some interesting facts before the Tigers and Red Sox wrap up the opening series: Prince Fielder now has 232 homers in 1,000 career games. Through 1,000 games, Cecil Fielder had exactly 232 home runs. (Baseball Reference) Saturday’s home run binge was the 4th time two Tigers infielders had multiple homers in the same game in […]

Tigers Easily Set Attendance Record for 1st 2 Home Games

Yesterday morning I posted about the Tigers record setting Opening Day crowd and charted the comparison to every game two crowd since Comerica opened in 2000. After seeing two straight years of crowds roughly around 34,000 for the second home game and the fact that the Tigers are clearly talented and have a brand new […]

The Fister Ferry pulls into the Port of D.L.

According to the team, Doug Fister has gone on the 15-day DL with a left “costochondral” (rib cage) strain, effective Sunday (er, tomorrow). They will recall Brayan Villarreal. This all but confirms the Tigers will put Duane Below in the rotation and in an interesting tidbit, who would.have.thought the five starter competition this Spring was […]

Record Opening Day Attendance a Good Sign for Detroit?

Record Opening Day Attendance a Good Sign for Detroit?

The Tigers are playing the Red Sox in the second game of the season later today, and if Opening Day’s attendance was any indication of what kind of attention the Tigers can expect to receive during home games, then it’s going to be a good season in downtown Detroit. Sure, an Opening Day record of […]

Tigers 3, Red Sox 2: Justin Verlander Mows, Jose Valverde Blows and Austin Jackson Walks It Off On Opening Day

Justin Verlander needed 105 pitches to get through eight innings of shutout work in which he allowed two measly hits and struck out seven batters opposite one walk. Any other start during the season and Verlander probably finishes what he started with up to another 15-20 pitches and the Tigers win without issue. Instead, with […]

The Final Pre Season Column

I thought about titling this column: Verlander calls himself a “hot molten lava cake”, Goldstein and Rosenthal pick the Tigers as W.S. winners, Bowden say Boesch will hit 30 HR, and stories that will make you clap your hands and run around the house shrieking about the possible fantastic, historical season the 2012 Detroit Tigers […]
