Game 2015.78: Pirates at Tigers

This team seems so uninspired. We may be beating a dead horse, but how long can this go on? Baseball-Reference game preview here. BTW – I have a friend who works for the Indians. I texted him last night after the 2nd out of the 9th to say “looks like you’ll be busy tonight.” Next pitch was a line drive single to right. TIGERS (career numbers off Liriano) Rajai Davis, CF...

Simon, Chamberlain hit hard as Tigers fall to Pirates 9-3

DETROIT (AP) For the second night in a row, Joba Chamberlain got booed by his home fans Wednesday. He can't blame them. Detroit's set-up man allowed an inherited runner to score a key run in Tuesday's 14-inning loss to the Pirates, then allowed three homers in the eighth inning as Pittsburgh won 9-3 on Wednesday. ''I can't be mad, I would have booed me too,'' said the Tigers' set...

Gage: Verlander's next start will be first that can be fairly judged

DETROIT -- Spring training in June is over for Justin Verlander. It's time to move forward. In fact, it's high time to move forward. The Tigers are searching for consistency in their starting rotation. Most of the time, they've searched in vain. It's been David Price and "others" so far. They are 13-3 in starts made by Price, but 26-34 in starts made by anyone other than Price. And...

Victor Martinez says he has ‘no respect’ for anyone on the Pirates after HBP

Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez was fuming after Detroit’s 5-4, 14 inning loss to the Pirates Tuesday night. However the veteran wasn’t sounding off about the loss, VMart was busy taking verbal shots at the Pirates after getting hit by a  Gerrit Cole pitch in the fourth inning. “Yeah, everyone knows that,” Martinez told 97.1-FM’s Jeff Riger when asked whether...

Gritty performances not enough to lift Tigers over White Sox

DETROIT -- There were some gritty performances by the Tigers Tuesday night, but just not enough for a victory. Justin Verlander, in his third start of the season, struggled mightily in the early going but found a way to give the Tigers some innings and a chance to win the game. J.D. Martinez hit a game-tying two-run home run in the eighth, his 20th of the season and 11th in the month...

Hot mic catches Verlander’s foul mouth

Gage: Tigers' off day is convenient buffer between turmoil, tranquility

DETROIT -- Incident? What incident? If you're going to be a good major-league manager -- for that matter, if you're going to be a good manager at any level -- there are certain skills you can't afford not to master. That's what I understand to be true, anyway, never having been a manager. That's what I've even been told is true by more than one individual who mastered those skills...

It’s time for the Detroit Tigers to remove Anthony Gose from leadoff spot

When the Detroit Tigers traded away Austin Jackson as part of the David Price acquisition, it left the team with a sizable hole in center field. For the second half of the 2014 season, the Tigers used a combination of Rajai Davis and Ezequiel Carrera. The patch work platoon did a solid job, but it was obvious that an upgrade was needed for 2015. Jackson did an excellent job roaming...

‘Miscommunication’ magnifies Detroit Tigers lack of leadership

Forget about the Detroit Tigers’ comeback win. It was a fantastic victory for a club that needed it badly. Strip away Victor Martinez’s three-run triple that tied the score in the eighth inning. Take away James McCann’s walk-off home run to win the game in the ninth inning. If the Tigers don’t defeat the Chicago White Sox. 5-4, then the storyline is much different this...

Detroit Tigers: trading Cespedes makes sense ( + dollars)

Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is the Detroit Tigers most valuable trading piece and they should take advantage of it. The fact of the matter is that the Tigers are 39-36 and on the outside looking in of the playoff picture. While it is “only June,” it is also June, so the Tigers have had almost 3 months to distance themselves from the rest of the pack in the AL Central Division...

Detroit Tigers' James McCann hits walk-off homer (VIDEO)

The Detroit Tigers have had their share of ups and downs this season. Sunday's dramatic walk-off victory was just another example of this team's peaks and valleys -- this one ending on a rather high note.

Tigers Daily-ish: McCann’s Walk-off Covers Up Price Absence

The Detroit Tigers continued their season of mediocrity on Sunday with a sudden flash of brilliance just when things were looking about as morose as possible. A bizarre situation on the mound involving the disappearance of their star pitcher only heightened the tension of a game that was seemingly circling the drain.

Detroit Tigers expect Justin Verlander to start Tuesday

When the Detroit Tigers used Kyle Ryan out of the bullpen last week, it was speculated that Justin Verlander was nearing a return to the starting rotation. Verlander didn’t end up pitching on Saturday. Actually, a rainout prevented anyone from taking the mound against the Chicago White Sox. Regardless though, Verlander wasn’t ready to pitch Saturday. According to manager Brad...

Miguel Cabrera digs cut of young Indians fan’s jib, gives him bat, gloves (vids)

Miguel Cabrera may have converted a young Cleveland Indians fan into a Miggy Maniac after a delightful interaction in which the youngster impressed the Detroit Tigers slugger with a slick catch and then some even slicker smack talk. The fan snagged a foul ball down the first base line off the bat of Jason Kipnis...Read More The post Miguel Cabrera digs cut of young Indians fan...
