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. […]
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 […]
Atta boy, Maxwell.
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 […]
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 […]
It was a brief scare, because it was early in the game, and apparently the team ran out of toilet paper, but Castellanos made it back in time for his at bat. He finished the game 2-for-4 and feeling relieved, but not by Don Kelly. Nothing to see here.

It has been 30 years since the Tigers last won a World Series #RoarOf84. There was a celebration on Monday before the Tigers took on the Oakland A’s. What better way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Tigers’ last World Series than with a World Series, though, right? Eat ‘em up in ’14.
The other two? Hall of Famers Bert Blyleven and Dennis Eckersley.
Before the season, Ian Kinsler made a hilarious wish that his old team, the Texas Rangers, “lose their ass” and go 0-162 this season. He also called their GM a sleaze ball. In his first game back in Texas with his new team, the Detroit Tigers, Kinsler homered in his first at bat. On his […]
Beltre’s 2,500th career hit was met with a standing ovation from his fans and a head rub from the always-playful Miguel Cabrera. Beltre, never pleased with anyone touching his head, immediately collected hit no. 2,501 on Cabrera’s nuts. Beltre tried to hit Cabrera in the groin a month ago in a game in Detroit after Cabrera, […]
More from Matthew B. Mowery of The Oakland Press: Immediately, he added: “I’m just kidding. My wife and kids are fantastic. I do get a little mopey at home. But my wife and kids are good. They’ve seen me be in a bad mood after a loss. They’ve been great.” One question — and almost […]
