Can the Detroit Tigers still make the 2016 playoffs? After starting 2015 as the four-time defending American League Central champions, there were few teams in Major League Baseball who ended the season more disappointed than the Detroit Tigers. A blistering start to the campaign saw them go 11-2. the Tigers were tied for first place […]
The Rod Allen Drinking Game was originally created by Big Al at the now-defunct Wayne Fontes Experience and has since been updated over the years by D4L (and one year at Walk Off Woodward). It has officially become cemented as a drunken-staple in the Detroit sports community. And it’s not just a brainless, alcoholic’s activity, either — there are things […]
April Fools! Despite it being the year 2016, a day and age when we can see just about anything, including Justin Verlander’s bare ass, there’s no freakin’ video of Ben Verlander’s first ever plate appearance against his big brother, MLB Cy Young and MVP. So we’re left to imagine what that video would look like […]
Harbaugh looks perfect for the gig – sloppy body guy, but successful. Harbaugh turns everything he touches into gold. The Tigers should consider keeping him on. More video here.
1. What a big win for the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night via — you didn’t guess it — a shootout! It could have been an OT win after the Wings’ elite goaltender made a sick save, skated a little bit and made a sick open-ice pass to the breaking Pavel Datsyuk, but the zebras blew […]
1. Detroit Pistons news lately is kind of hilarious. See the cover of Detroit Bad Boys for instance (if you’re on a desktop or tablet): The Pistons ended their 5-game skid by beating THE BEASTS OF THE EAST! But, in stark contrast to winning a nice game? Stanley Johnson has a sprained shoulder. Anthony Tolliver is […]
Detroit4lyfe has been around for a decade, so we’ve done some things here, including links posts. Here’s a new one: Four major Detroit sports stories/links you should probably check out. In no particular order: 1. With Detroit Tigers Spring Training underway, Justin Verlander turned 33 on Saturday. There are a couple puff pieces you can read about […]
I’ve been debating for months as to how or even if I should share this with people. – I’m a firm believer in the power of prayer. So now, I’m asking for prayers. – A few months ago, after I was optioned to AAA, I found out I had a growth on my thyroid. Flying […]
Modest house. Very unspoiled.
Justin Verlander threw another absolute gem on Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Angels, one-hitting the Angels in a 5-0 win. Verlander lost his no-hitter in the 9th inning when Chris Ianetta put a 97-mph fastball on the chalk down the left-field line. Verlander would get the next two outs to complete the complete game […]
Norris followed that up by hitting a home run in his first MLB at bat of Jon Lester. Not your bad. Not bad at all.
The Tigers won’t pitch their way into the postseason, but if they continue to get 19 hits and score 10-plus runs a game, I think they might have a chance to win some games. I think. Keep those shoes shined, boys. Maybe bring back Ryan Raburn and his shine box for that.
Your browser does not support iframes. Unbelievable. HR off Jon Lester at Wrigley Field, the first HR at Wrigley by an AL pitcher, in his first big league at bat. GENE LAMONT! Norris left the game in the 5th inning with an injury in his side, which some people will say MUST have happened from […]
This is in response to McCann’s dust up with Jose Iglesias in the dugout on Friday night. Of course Price is going to back his old battery mate. McCann may have shown Igelsias up, resulting in Iglesias blowing up, but he most likely had the best intentions in mind, and that’s a good thing for the […]
