Fans nervously wondered if one poor decision sabotaged the Detroit Tigers postseason hopes.

Detroit Tigers’ shortstop Jose Iglesias does it all

When the Detroit Tigers traded for Jose Iglesias during the 2013 season they thought they were getting their shortstop for the next fifteen years. Iglesias and the Tigers hit a little snag in that plan almost immediately however.

Tigers Daily-ish: Jose Iglesias Brings The Motown Funk

Is there any doubt that if players had a soundtrack associate to their season much like a movie, the Marc Ronson/Bruno Mars smash “Uptown Funk” would be somewhere on the Jose Iglesias album? There isn’t a player on the club that better exhibits the upbeat craziness on the field that the hit tune evokes on the radio airwaves every day during its long run at number one. Can’t...

GIF: Jose Iglesias’ no-look catch thanks to the sun When your glove is as good as Jose Iglesias’, you don’t even need to look.  On Saturday against the White Sox, Iglesias battled the sun on a soft liner hit right at him.  At the last second, he had to look away.  He stuck up his glove and…happy birthday to him.  There’s nothing worse on the baseball field (injuries aside) than losing a ball in the sun. Sometimes...

Detroit Tigers: why Jose Iglesias means so much

The Detroit Tigers remain atop the standings in the American League Central, even after a rough stretch of games that included dropping four of seven on the west coast. Their shortstops however, are bottom-feeders to the core. Before we get too far into this it is worth noting that yes, Andrew Romine’s defense has been commendable.
