Tigers trade for Joakim Soria

Great trade for the Tigers who are in win-now mode and desperately needed bullpen help. I still feel like Dave Dombrowski needs to make another deal to mitigate Joe Nathan if he doesn’t find it and perhaps even another trade on a lesser scale. The Tigers bullpen is garbage and unpredictable fringe prospects are… unpredictable. […]

Young Ben Affleck pitching Saturday for Tigers

Drew VerHagen, who I called during Spring Training a morph between Verlander and some other unknown dude named Hagen, may be showcasing himself for a very important trade Dave Dombrowski has in the works. VerHagen is a 6-foot-6 righty who pitches to contact, but he gets outs. He’s not bad. Let’s hope he throws well […]

VIDEO: Miguel Cabrera hits 2-run HR in All-Star Game

Miguel Cabrera admitted before the game (and denied) that his core injury that required offseason surgery was still bothering him and affecting his power (only 14 home runs thus far this season), but he had no trouble turning on a Adam Wainwright fastball in the first inning and sending it into the seats. Miggy’s social […]

How great was Rick Porcello’s 0-strikeout, 0-walk complete game shutout?

When Joe Posnanski calls it miraculous, you read: As mentioned, these zero-walk, zero-strikeout shutouts — let’s call them Porcellos to make it simple — these Porcellos used to be rare but they did happen. If you go back to 1969 — that expansion year championship series in each league — there have been nine Porcelllos […]
