The Tigers (86-69) lost 5-2 Sunday in Kansas City, squandering...

Tigers' Verlander gets his groove back

If the Tigers are going to win the American League Central Division and then make some noise in the playoffs, they're going to need Justin Verlander. Yet it hasn't been Verlander's year at all. He came into Friday night's opender of a pivotal three-game series at Kansas City with a 13-12 record and 4.81 ERA, looking far from the Cy Young/MVP winner he was in 2011...

Detroit Tigers: time for Brad Ausmus to get a clue

The Detroit Tigers had a magical victory ripped from their grasp last night thanks to the continued failures of closer Joe Nathan. After being shut down in earnest for eight torturous innings, and trailing 2-0 in the 9th, the Tigers managed to sneak two guys on base for Mr. Clutch. And once again JD Martinez delivered. He smashed a Glen Perkins fastball over the right field wall...

The Detroit Tigers successfully proved that not all hazing is bad hazing when they made their rookies dress up like lingerie football players and play a game of two-hand touch before boarding a plane to Minnesota this weekend.
