Weird interference play helps A’s, but not enough

  Stephen Vogt was one of the A’s left a little confused by an odd interference play in the fifth inning Friday. One of the oldest sayings about baseball is that on any given day you can see something you’ve never seen before. Friday’s Oakland-Detroit game was one of those given days. The Tigers thought they’d scored in the fifth inning when Ian Kinsler tagged up and tried...

Ian Kinsler is Turning Back the Clock

Usually, we expect players to follow a more or less expected curve of decline when they hit their 30s. Obviously everyone is different, but baseball is a young man’s game, and father time comes for us all. Research by Jeff Zimmerman in 2013 showed that hitters don’t even tend to peak nowadays: on average, they perform at a plateau upon reaching the majors, then they decline...

Watch Ian Kinsler told the baseball to get out of here

Instagram Ian Kinsler and J.D. Martinez both hit home runs during the Tigers’ seven-run seventh inning Tuesday.  Kinsler watched J.D. Mart’s jack from the bench and told the ball precisely where to go. You don’t need an advanced degree in lip reading to know that he told the ball to leave the yard. A video posted by Always Sunny (@itsalwayssunnyindetroit) on May...

WATCH: Why did Ian Kinsler purposely let infield fly drop?

It’ll wind up in the box score as a 4-6 ground ball fielder’s choice. In reality, it was a force play during Sunday’s game between the Tigers and Astros that was equal parts bizarre and brilliant. With Colby Rasmus reaching first base after a leadoff walk, Tyler White hit a pop fly in the direction of Ian Kinsler at second base. Kinsler acted as if he was going to catch...

David Price ready to become good friends with David Ortiz

Cue the mushy love song. David Ortiz and David Price had their differences as American League East foes. But with Price joining the Boston Red Sox on a seven-year contract, both sides are willing to let bygones be bygones. “Big Papi and myself, we’re both competitors,” Price said Friday at his introductory press conference at Fenway Park. “What he’s done for this organization...

Necessary Moves: Ian Kinsler, Detroit Tigers

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective. A player can be deemed movable for any of the following reasons: production (or lack thereof), current and future...

WATCH: Ian Kinsler to umpire: "Do your f-ing job!"

By Darryn Albert. Detroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler has had a brutal week at the dish. Entering the day sporting a .190/.227/.238 slash line over his last five games, the 33-year-old veteran capped things off on Sunday with a spectacularly bad 0-for-4 with a strikeout showing against the Houston Astros. The frustrations of Kinsler’s mini-slump appeared to boil over...

Fantasy Baseball: Second half duds

Baseball’s regular season is cut in half by the MLB All-Star break. The event, taking place during mid-July of each year can completely change a player’s fortunes. A player having a career year before the All-Star break may find himself struggling after the break; the opposite is just as likely. In case you missed it, my most recent article was about players who should be in...
