Game 10: Tigers (6-3) @ Padres (4-7), 4:10 PM ET

Bleary eyed Detroit fans are looking forward to a west coast game that should end well before the witching hour, as Max Scherzer and his 1.20 ERA look to deliver a series win over the Padres, with the Tigers offense hopefully treating the 2013 AL Cy Young kinder than it has thus far. The bats […]

Game 8: Tigers (5-2) @ Padres (3-6)

After a day off following the Tigers’ dramatic 7-6 extra innings victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Tigers roll into town to take on former teammate Joaquín Benoit and the San Diego Padres. The Padres have struggled early on, winning only three of their first nine games, while the Tigers are enjoying first place […]

Five Overly Rushed Conclusions From the Tigers’ First Week

The Tigers have played a week’s worth of games now, so we’ll use this small sample size to draw a bunch of overarching conclusions about the state of the ballclub, because that’s what sports punditry entails. So here are some slapdash thoughts based on seven games of baseball…. 1. Andrew Romine should be getting a […]

Game 7: Tigers (4-2) @ Dodgers (6-3), 10:10 PM, ET

The Tigers will try to get back to their winning ways tonight when they face off against Josh Beckett and the Dodgers. The lineup looks a bit different tonight with Torii Hunter out after colliding with the wall in foul territory last night and Alex Avila getting the night off as well. Tigers: SP: Anibal […]

Dodgers Find Tigers Soft Spots, Win 3-2 in 10

The good news is it’s only the 9th of April. You can still procrastinate on your tax returns for a few more days and Brad Ausmus is an intelligent human who, despite the fact that he’d probably still look handsome cloaked in failure, will not likely allow Phil Coke to drape him in late inning […]

Game 6: Tigers (4-1) @ Dodgers (5-3), 10:10 PM, ET

Mahatma Gandhi said, “I would heartily welcome the union of East and West provided it is not based on brute force.” Right about now, most of you are wondering if you clicked the wrong link or if I’ve been partaking in some of the more liberal uses of free time out here in Santa Monica, where […]

Quiet Bats Send Tigers To First Defeat

It had to come sometime. The Tigers dropped their first contest of the season to Baltimore 3-1 as Chris Tillman pitched into the ninth, allowing just five hits. Justin Verlander pitched well, putting efficiency over strikeouts and pitching eight strong innings. He fanned just three but his lower pitch count enabled him to pitch through […]

Game 5: Tigers vs. Orioles

Apologies for the quick & late lineups – wheels up in, well, way too soon. We’ve got a few wrinkles today including Romine starting at SS again and Tyler Collins getting the nod in left against RHP Chris Tillman. Enjoy the game, folks! Orioles Chris Tillman (R) 1. David Lough (L) LF 2. Nick Markakis […]

Despite Their Bullpen, Tigers Remain Unbeaten

The final score of this game was 7-6 Tigers. It looks close, and at the end it was close, though it had no business being close. While we should be discussing Torii Hunter’s huge day at the plate and a strong outing from Rick Porcello, we get to address the bullpen again! Well, let’s start […]

Game 4: Orioles (1-3) at Tigers (3-0), 1:08 PM

The Tigers are in search of their first 4-0 start since 2012 (probably not as long as you realized) and here are the lineups: Orioles SP: Bud Norris 1. David Lough (LF) 2. Nelson Cruz (RF) 3. Chris Davis (1B) 4. Adam Jones (CF) 5. Nick Markakis (DH) 6. J.J.
