Justin Verlander wasn’t his best, but he was still better than most and tallied his 49th straight start of six-plus innings, which dates back to August 2010. He needed an inefficient 113 pitches to get there and at one point had to be restrained from throwing a 100 mph fist in the face of home […]
Happy Verlander Day. I reserve the right to withhold blogging until after the game and my heartburn dissolves.
In 2011 the Tigers were 77-0 when leading after seven innings. Through 28 games in 2012, the Tigers were 10-6 despite having relatively the same bullpen arms (and even adding Octavio Dotel).

People tend to get mad at the media for twisting Words in a way that makes a story sound much better than it is. Now, that’s […]
Recap is coming shortly, but I need to get something to eat first – although I’ve had enough big potato to last me a few weeks. But before I do that, a bit of news. Brayan Villarreal has been sent to Triple-A Toledo following today’s win over the White Sox. This is not a surprise […]
