Congrats, Max. Scherzer earned 28 of the 30 first place votes. Even Fangraphs was on board with this. Don’t let this one slip by you – Anibal Sanchez finished 4th in the voting (and had 1 first place vote).   (saving this space for tomorrow)   In other news, Peralta met with the Mhets yesterday. […]

The Brad Ausmus Era Begins

The Tigers have not officially announced it, but all signs point to Brad Ausmus as your new manager. From what I can tell, this guy out of Houston broke the news. Though the home opener next March against KC will be the first game that Ausmus ever manages, this is a hire that I’m excited […]

This goes a long way towards explaining how emotional he was after clinching the division. Discuss.

Wrong side of 2-1, 7 games left to go. So, my intention was to just post a “short and sweet for the W” and then let the chips fall. It worked pretty well back in the day (meaning 2011 – 2012). Well, I’m glad I put something up last night. There has been (understandably) so […]

It’s just 2-1. We’re playing the best regular season team in baseball, not Minnesota. There’s no home field advantage in MLB playoffs. We have the best rotation in baseball, and the best hitter too. Big game tomorrow. We’ll be alright. More to come.

(credit to Detroit News for the image. Note to Detroit News – we’re not making any money off of this. Still, if you want us to take it down, just post here and we will) 3-2, 8 more to go. Look, I’m happy to be here. I am. It’s better than the alternative. But champagne […]

1-1, 10 games to go. Relax. Take a deep breath. The Tigers own home field advantage for the rest of the ALDS. Yes, the hitting is a concern. Dare I say a grave one. But offense can be restored as quickly as it was lost, and this offense is simply too good to disappear forever. As KW […]

Props to the Pirates. Good luck in the playoffs. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s Cle/Tampa game. I’m going to pull for Cle. A few interesting tidbits from the WSJ last week: – According to Baseball Info Solutions there have been more than 7,800 “defensive shifts” in 2013, up from 4,500 in 2012. – The […]

92-66, 1. Since this won’t be my last post this season, I won’t feel bad about a short one on a busy day. You know that a win tonight, or a Cle loss, will clinch a third straight division title. That’s the first time since…ever. They did win three straight pennants from 1907-1909, but they have […]

91 – 66, 2. Not much to like about yesterday’s game. Even though JV went 6 with 0 ER and 12 Ks, he walked 3 and got in enough trouble to not pitch into the 7th. I don’t have the numbers in front of me, but I’m certain that the bullpen has pitched significantly more […]

91 – 65, 2. I liked it better when you got all of your baseball stats from one place: the sports page. Or really, one to two pages of the sports section. Everything was laid out right in front of you, so you could jump from team to team, or stat to stat, without clicking […]

85-63, Magic Number is 10. Gotta hop on a plane, so a few disjointed thoughts. Tigers lose a playoff type game last night in a game where the AL’s best pitching flexed some muscle and completely shut down the Tigers. I wasn’t able to tune in early but did catch the Infante double. I agree […]
