Game 2013.63: Tigers at Royals

35-27, first place 5.5 GA, losing streak at 1. Evan Reed is up, Jose Alvarez is down, and I think Jose Ortega is still down, though I’m not sure, and I’m not even sure if he was down to begin with. Losing track, too tired to count. (That’s funny, considering what follows….) MORE ON THE […]

Hello DTW Friends – Considering the hottest story of the past week has been regarding Tom Brookens resurrecting his career at coaching 3B, I think it’s safe to say that we are in a quiet period. Which is the opposite of how Tom Brookens is handling the promotion(?). That said, I thought I’d put up a […]

Open thread for the Winter Meeting activities…don’t have much time this morning, but I’m sure our community will keep us up to date…check back often. – Apparently Asdrubal Cabrera has a block on the Tigers, along with the Yankees, Red Sox, Nationals, Giants and Mets. Interesting company. – I don’t think the Indians want Peralta, […]

(see what I did there? Tres? You can call me the blog post title Expert, if you’d like) It’s been a while, so let’s get caught up on Free Agent news around the club. There hasn’t been much movement around Detroit, but some interesting things nonetheless. I am fascinated by the Josh Hamilton situation. Living in […]

Miguel Cabrera is your 2012 AL MVP. What was billed to be a neck and neck battle between Old School and New School turned out to be Cabrera in a laugher, as he took 22 of 28 first place votes, and handily beat Trout with 362 points to 281 points. I sat in on the […]

Carrying over the previous thread (and this is over a few days, so some of the news is from Monday). – Open letter to TSE, dude, you gotta start making some specific recommendations. You’re turning away readers. I implore you, suggest a few actual deals. Everyone who reads knows that I let just about anything […]

I’d love to write a long piece to recap all the fun we’ve had over these past several weeks, and to celebrate the historic season by Cabrera and what could be another Cy Young entry for Verlander. But I don’t think any of us have forgotten that, and this picture is more reflective of how […]

Delmon Young was asked what the Tigers are going to do to change their luck: “Like sacrifice a chicken or something? We’re not going to do that.”  (@beckjason). Well that seems reasonable.  Not that anyone has suggested any better ideas. Delmon also states the painful truth when he says that “we haven’t hit all playoffs,” […]

4 games to go. I distinctly remember the off days leading up to the ’06 series. I was watching John Kruk (on ESPN) during the Cardinals/Mets series, and someone asked him who his pick would be to win the NLCS. Kruk just laughed and said something to the effect of “does it matter? Detroit’s going […]

Well, there are two ways to look at Game 1 of the World Series. One is that SF beat Detroit in every aspect of the game: pitching, relief pitching, fielding, hitting, lucky bounces (there wasn’t much significant base running). The other side of this is that it is only one game, regardless of how badly […]

4 games to go. What a tremendous season: AL Central Division Champs. AL Division Series Champs. AL Pennant. Triple Crown Winner. Perhaps another Cy Young winner. But you know what? It’s not enough. The D deserves more.  And we’re gonna get it. ************************* Now, as I’m sure you have all see, there is an abundance […]
