Blue Jays Do What They Do, Hit Homers, Beat Tigers

Sometimes, as a fan, you know going into a series that your team is going to be up against it. You have that feeling, that inkling that this is going to be a long three days. You’re bereft of confidence and you’re steeling yourself for a beating. I felt like that before the Tigers kicked […]

Verlander Gives Tigers Reason For Hope In Season To Forget

As the Tigers stumble toward the finish of a season that almost certainly won’t end in October for the first time since 2010, it comes time to look for reasons to be optimistic about 2016. There are a number of them, but perhaps first and foremost among them is one that wouldn’t even have sniffed […]

Bryan Holaday Leaves Game After Collision At the Plate

Mudhens catcher—and likely September call-up—Bryan Holaday left Monday’s Mudhens game after a home plate collision in the tenth inning. Holaday was taken out by the Gwinnett Braves’ Mallex Smith at the plate and immediately left the field, favoring his left hand/arm. Smith jarred the ball loose and ended up scoring what was the winning run. […]

Tigers Show More Fight In Dugout Than On Field

Tigers Show More Fight In Dugout Than On Field

In case you missed it, there was a dustup in the Tigers dugout during tonight’s 7-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Between the top half and bottom half of the sixth inning, José Iglesias and James McCann exchanged heated words (here), with Iglesias shoving McCann and throwing his glove at him before Nick Castellanos […]

Tigers (48-49) @ Red Sox (43-55):

The Tigers are looking for something—anything!—out of righty Shane Greene, who toes the mound in Boston tonight. Greene has been downright abysmal since a six start stretch to begin the season. If Greene doesn’t have a good showing against the Sox, he might find himself back in the minors. This afternoon, the Tigers recalled lefty […]

Mariners 11, Tigers 9: Yeah, It’s Probably Time To Sell

The Detroit Tigers still have several days to make up their minds on their trade strategy. In that sense, there’s an urgency, but really no backbreaking rush to make a decision. But a few more games like this will make the decision very easy, and frankly, if we’re being realistic, the decision should already be […]

Game 89: Orioles (Jimenez) vs. Tigers (Sanchez)

Twins 8, Tigers 6: Disaster in the Land of a Thousand Bullpen Meltdowns

Well, that was bad. Let’s try to sort through this. Justin Verlander was great. The offense scored plenty of runs. J.D. Martinez hit an impressive opposite field homer, Yoenis Cespedes hit a three run shot, it was 6-0 in the 8th and 6-1 in the 9th. So why are we angry? Well, let’s start in […]

Game 86: Tigers (44-41) at Twins (46-40), 8:10 PM

The Tigers can pull even with Minnesota in the loss column with a victory tonight… DETROIT SP: Justin Verlander 1. Ian Kinsler (2B) 2. Yoenis Cespedes (LF) 3. Victor Martinez (DH) 4. J.D. Martinez (RF) 5. Alex Avila (C) 6. Nick Castellanos (3B) 7. Marc Krauss (1B) 8. Anthony Gose (CF) 9. Jose Iglesias (SS) MINNESOTA SP: Ervin Santana 1. Brian Dozier (2B) 2. Torii Hunter (RF) 3. Joe Mauer (1B) 4. Miguel Sano (DH) 5. Trevor Plouffe (3B) 6. Eddie Rosario (LF) 7. Aaron Hicks (CF) 8. Kurt Suzuki (C) […]

Tigers (43-41) at Twins (46-39), 8:10 PM

It’s the opening game of a series that could see the Tigers fall 6.5 behind Minnesota or jump 1.5 games ahead of them. Every time the Twins look like they’re about to collapse, they do something like sweep the Orioles, so here we stand… DETROIT SP: David Price 1. Ian Kinsler (2B) 2. Yoenis Cespedes (LF) 3. Victor Martinez (DH) 4. J.D. Martinez (RF) […]
