Detroit Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris has thyroid cancer

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 […]

Justin Verlander flirts with no hitter, tears in post-game interview

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 […]

Tigers bring their June 1935 hittin’ shoes to Wrigley

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.

Nutty squirrel delays Tigers-Royals game

Look at that thing go. Hah! Your browser does not support iframes. So glad the announcers cited the rules. Hopefully that squirrel was read its miranda rights and it will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. My only rub is FOX Sports’ shamelessness in airing it for ratings — these idiots who run on the […]

It’s not over yet for the Tigers

The Detroit Tigers’ dissipating loud roar  turned into a mere yelp after Miguel Cabrera’s recent injury. The MVP candidate suffered a Grade 3 left calf strain earlier this month against the Toronto Blue Jays, putting him on the disabled list for the first time in his career and on the shelf for six weeks.  Apart from being the […]
