Game 2012.162: Tigers at Royals

87-74, Central Division Champs I’ve got to admit, I’m pretty excited about the potential Triple Crown. Here are a few Triple Crown facts for you: – The Triple Crown has been accomplished 16 times, but none since Carl Yastzremski in 1967. Yastrzemski tied Harmon Killebrew for the HR lead that year with 44. Miggy is the first […]

87-73, Central Division Champs. Enjoy. If the season had already ended, we’d be squaring off with the Rangers in Detroit on Saturday. Currently, the Yankees would get the #1 AL seed based on their head to head record versus the Rangers, with the Rangers as the 2nd division winner, and then the Orioles and As […]

86-73, 1st place, magic # is 1. The Tigers won their 6th game in 7 tries in dramatic fashion last night to move 13 games over .500 for the first time all year, and 3 games ahead of the White Sox with three to play. Sweet October is here. I’d like to point out that […]

Detroit Tigers, 85-73, 1st place, 2 up, magic number 3. Fister, then Smyly, then Verlander: the Tiger starters are on a roll, and this afternoon Anibal Sanchez takes the mound, following up one of the best Tiger starts of the season, to face the 1-9 Australian Liam Hendricks , who is the only Liam in […]

Detroit Tigers, 84-73, 1st place, 1 up, magic number 5. Doumit! Things were starting to go so well, even last night–a great outing by Smyly, who may end up being a key part of the stretch run/postseason…although the offense was strangely silent (again) against Diamond.  Diamond said that the Tiger hitters had adjusted to him […]

Detroit Tigers, 84-72, 1st place, 2 up, magic number 5. Well, that’s fun, after all this–that magic number thing. After a disappointing “outing” by Rick Porcello on Wednesday (in which he got Not Enough Outs), Doug Fister came through in a big way, with Way Too Many Strikeouts, to the tune of an American League […]

83-72, 1st place, 1 game ahead of CWS. In case you’ve missed today’s theme, we’re in first place. Final home game of the regular season today, the Tigers head to Minnesota and KC for the final 6 of the season. Little bit of a shake-up for the final road-trip as Scherzer has been scratched for tomorrow’s start due […]

82-72, 1st PLACE! Anibal Sanchez picked a prime spot for his best performance as a Tiger when he picked through the Royals lineup with ease, allowing only 3 hits in a complete game shut-out. Sanchez K’d 10 against only 1 walk. Sanchez had to be nearly perfect, because Chen was surgical, according to Leyland. Chen […]

81-72, .5 games back. There was a brief moment of exuberance last night, when the Tigers were arguably tied for first, and Miguel Cabrera was arguably in the Triple Crown lead. Then stephen spoke and all hell broke loose. Minutes later a Josh Hamilton 6th inning HR and an Adam Dunn 8th inning 3 run […]

80-72, 2nd place, 1 game behind CWS, E# 10. I haven’t yet figured out how to insert fancy charts into the Word Press editor yet, but imagine there’s a graph below entitled “Jose Valverde’s Career.” The Y axis (vertical) would go from “Bad” at the bottom to “Good” at the top. The X axis (horizontal) […]

Detroit Tigers, 80-71, 2nd place, .5 back. Well, they say that it’s a hard thing to win both games of a double-header, although why that is harder than winning any other two games in a row has never been explained to me.  At any rate, after some preliminary calculations, I’ve concluded that there is a […]

Detroit Tigers, 80-70, 2nd place,  .5 back. The rain went away, Doug Fister was the Fister we expected and more (he pitched his first career shutout), the bats were booming (every Tiger except Peralta had at least one hit, and 5 different Tigers knocked in runs), and the Angels were playing well, which means the […]
