Iglesias is optimistic that he'll be ready to play in Tuesday's series opener with the White Sox, but the Tigers will be keeping...

David Price found out he had the day off via Twitter

Tigers ace David Price pitched a masterful performance on Saturday -- a five hitter for his 12th career complete game -- to beat the division rival Royals. Such a grueling day on the mound must have taken a toll on Price, because he seemed to have lost track of the team's day off on Monday. Thankfully, manager Brad Ausmus unintentionally reminded Price about the Tigers' off day when...

Former Expo Nelson Santovenia Teaching Tools Of The Trade In Tigers System

Nelson Santovenia was one of the good guys in baseball when I knew him from my days as an Expos’ beat writer. Kind, unassuming, polite were just a few words to describe him. He hasn’t changed. Santovenia was one of those prospect-type players the Expos discovered out of two post-high school institutions. He’s a trivia item of sorts: he may have been the only player drafted...

Reports of the Tigers’ demise were greatly exaggerated

Maybe it was their failure in the postseason against Baltimore last October (they lost seven of their last nine play off games). Maybe it was worries about their injuries and old age. Maybe it was boredom, refusing to pick the same team as always to win it all, but for some reason the sports writers of American (including those for this site) had essentially pronounced the Detroit...

Detroit Tigers off to historically torrid start

For Detroit Tigers fans of a certain age, a fast start to the regular season is nothing new.  In 1984 the Motor City Kitties rocketed out to a 35-5 record through the first 40 games, a feat which has never been duplicated. It is unlikely a team is soon going to duplicate that feat, but this year’s Tigers are certainly looking capable of matching that season’s total of 104 wins...
