Three Up, Three Down: Tigers’ 2014 is Done

Chris Tillman’s first inning started with three strikeouts in Game 1 to a standing ovation. Tillman was on the field two games later, jumping and celebrating to a standing, shocked Detroit.

A sweep. Baltimore over Detroit. Three games to zilch. Barely enough time to order a Detroit postseason shirt before it was over. A Vegas favorite in April tripped up and fell over the orange and black leaves in October….or were those feathers? Read More…

Tigers in Need of Motown Miracle; Drop First Two in Baltimore

The first two games of the 2014 postseason appeared to be a script out of Brad Ausmus’ worst nightmare.

After dropping Game 1 on Thursday night, the Tigers found themselves with a 5-3 lead going into the sixth inning. Anibal Sanchez, normally a starting pitcher, came out of the bullpen for the Detroit Tigers. Read More…

The Dirks Dilemma

At some point this season, Detroit fans have called for the heads of all three outfield starters: Rajai Davis, Austin Jackson and Torii Hunter.

Other times, those shouting expletives in June were shouting approval in July.

All three players have looked valuable to the Tigers at some point during the first four months of the season, and while their sporadic play may have satiated fans, Brad Ausmus may not be convinced.

Meet J. D. Martinez

Hobbies of new Detroit acquisition, JD Martinez, include dancing, long walks on the beach and knocking the pulp out of the baseball.

Julio Daniel Martinez, the 26-year-old bombshell, has been the lightning bolt in a Tigers team that was desperate for an electric player. Originally Houston’s everyday left fielder, Martinez’s mediocre numbers in 2013 led to multiple trips to the minor leagues, with an eventual release from the Astros organization.

Tigers Drop Two of Three in Shortened Series

Detroit’s recent woes continued in the Windy City as the ailing Tigers dropped two of three in a rain-shortened series against the Chicago White Sox.

Blue Jays Dominate Tigers, Detroit Lose Fifth Straight

It is beginning to sound like a broken record at this point.

Anibal Sanchez was dominant again, seven innings pitched, just two hits, no walks and five strikeouts. That should earn a win for most teams on most nights.

A Summer Slump

Wait, what happened? I blinked.

A week ago, fans were comparing Detroit’s team to the World Series winners of 1984. Jump forward one disappointing week, and some are thinking more about the 2003 Tigers.

Since May 19, Detroit has lost seven of their last eight, surrendering an embarrassing 67 runs. Their losses included a road sweep by the Cleveland Indians, losing three of four to the sub-.500 Rangers and getting spanked by the Athletics in their first game at Oakland.

Opinion: A Special Squad’s Secret to Success

Detroit is not just the best team in baseball. They are also the most enjoyable to watch.

Coming into Fenway against rowdy Boston fans would make any team sweat, right? You would think a team sitting at the top of the competitive MLB would have some pressure to continue winning.

If there is, they sure are not showing it.

A Wild Week in Baltimore

A quiet May series in Baltimore has led to drama and determination for Detroit.

Detroit entered the Orioles’ Camden Yards after playing 13 consecutive days. A rain delay halted the series by over a half-hour for its inaugural game. With Drew Smyly and Rick Porcello as the men on the mound, the Tigers were not expecting fireworks to end their road trip.

However, the unexpected is what makes every game in the 162-spread season one to watch. Read More…

Ray Shines, Cabrera Comes Alive as Tigers Win Seven Straight

There has been a different Miguel Cabrera stepping to the plate every game for Detroit. On Tuesday, it was the one the Tigers want to see.

The MVP went 4-for-5, with four RBIs, including a solo shot in the first. It was Cabrera’s second four-hit game of the season and his first since April 4. The big fella for Detroit has gotten off to a slow start in the month of April, only batting .275.
