Tiger Talk – #4 – 4/10/14

The 2014 season is in full swing and the lads already have critiques for the team. Your host Richie Cozzolino, panelist Zac Swierad and production wiz Jonathan Yales dissect the team after the infant stages of the season.

Detroit is no stranger to an ailing bullpen. Did you think after three years of failing relief pitching that the Tigers would still have this issue? These guys certainly did not. The discussion opens up with a lengthy, disappointing talk about Joe Nathan and his lack of closing for the Tigers. The guys search for options in the bullpen for Detroit, and who, if anyone, can step up for a team falling apart horrendously at the end of games.

In 2007, they traded prospects to the Florida Marlins for eventual two-time MVP Miguel Cabrera, and in 2009, traded Curtis Granderson and Edwin Jackson for Austin Jackson, Max Scherzer, Phil Coke and Daniel Schlereth.

Detroit Tigers’ Postseason Report Card

As November arrives and seasons change, another year of Tigers baseball ends on a dull note. A preseason favorite to win the World Series, Detroit once again fell flat.

What went wrong? The hitting? The team who was first in hits and batting average in 2013 and second in OBP and SLG? That lineup?
