Game 2013. Playoffs 10: Red Sox at Tigers

First game of a 3-game series. “My favorite pastime is definitely baseball. We have a star-studded team & it’s going to be fun tonight” Thank you Calvin (or is it Johnson?). I couldn’t have said it better myself. It was a small thing really: take one guy from the front of the lineup, move him […]

One down, three to go. That makes it sound a lot easier than it will be. Once the celebrations subsided after last night’s thrilling, nail-biting victory, the questions crept back. Are the Tigers back to their frustrating habit of the all-or-nothing, feast-or-famine offense? It was a classic famine game: a bunch of base runners, most […]

Well, here we are facing elimination, which is never a pleasant thing. The series so far has been a bit dispiriting, which is why I am muttering to myself and throwing the F-bomb around to keep myself pumped up while I type this. And what the $%*! are you looking at? This isn’t supposed to […]

After 162 games and 162 game posts and after how many countless ups and downs, here are the Tigers right where we expected them to be from the first “Play Ball!” on the chilly April Fool’s Day that began the season: right where they were last season, beginning play in the ALDS against Oakland, representing […]

Detroit Tigers: 91-64, 1st Place (6.0 ahead of Cleveland).  Magic Number: 2 Well, time certainly does fly, flies like Prince Fielder scoring from first on a double, and comes barreling home to this my last regular season post. Time to get myself in playoff shape. With a magic number down to 2, it is possible […]

Detroit Tigers: 90-64, 1st Place (6.0 ahead of Cleveland).  Magic Number: 3 Well, it looks like the 5th time was the charm. Max Scherzer is now a proud 20-game winner, and had a sip of the bubbly to celebrate…apparently he is saving the magnum of Stroh’s for the postseason. Max also became only the 11th […]

Detroit Tigers: 89-64, 1st Place (6.0 ahead of Cleveland).  Magic Number: 4 It would be nice if the Tigers could win the division this weekend on their last home stand–hey, it would be nice whenever they win the division. That might be a tough task though with Cleveland playing three games against the Astros, who […]

Detroit Tigers: 83-62, 1st Place (6.0 ahead of Cleveland).  Well, if the Tigers are going to insist on playing the feast-or-famine game on offense, we might as well enjoy the feast, right? Great games by Fielder, Martinez, Avila, and Iglesias. Cabrera concerns me: he did hit 3 fairly deep, but he just doesn’t seem to […]

Detroit Tigers: 82-62, 1st Place (4.5 ahead of Cleveland).  It’s never a good sign when one of the top highlights of the game is an ejection. But in the first inning Miguel Cabrera was tossed for the second time this season in the middle of an at bat, and like last time was just talking […]

Detroit Tigers: 82-61, 1st Place (5.5 ahead of Cleveland).  The Tigers still have a fairly comfortable 5.5 game lead over Cleveland, so things are hardly going badly. Although they may have the race in hand, it is hardly encouraging to watch them hobble down the home stretch (literally and figuratively), and hardly a good harbinger […]

Detroit Tigers: 80-56, 1st Place (8.5 ahead of Cleveland).  Well, this is it, that last Tigers-Indians game of 2013. The Tigers will finish the season series either 16-3 or 15-4 against Cleveland, depending on what Justin Verlander and the B Team can do this afternoon.  As the Indians leave the field toward that visitor’s clubhouse […]

Detroit Tigers: 79-56, 1st Place (7.5 ahead of Cleveland).  Really, it is the most remarkable thing: Cleveland just cannot beat Detroit. After cruising to a rain-shortened victory last night, Detroit improved to 14-3 against their division rivals. There is nothing like that at the top of any other division in baseball; I don’t know when […]
