For P Ian Krol, Inf Steve Lombardozzi, minor league P Robbie Ray. I hate to see him go, but we can’t afford to keep our top 4 pitchers. Or so they say. Discuss.

So many thoughts, more coming tonight. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Fielder and $30M for Ian Kinsler. Kinsler’s big contract is up in 4 years. Fielder’s bigger contract is up in 7. I’m going to start with Jim’s question below. There’s been a lot of discontent surrounding Kinsler down here, and it’s been rising for about a year and […]

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 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.

ALCS: Boston 4, Detroit 2. Game 6: Boston 5, Detroit 2. Good game. Good series. Good season. No real disgrace in losing your final game to the best team in the American League. 7th inning, bottom half. Detroit up 2-1, somehow. Well, not “somehow.” The lead could have been bigger, maybe, but a big hit […]

ALCS: Boston 3, Detroit 2. Game 5: Red Sox 4, Tigers 3. Not as close as the score would indicate… or was it? It doesn’t take much to lose a game, and in this instance I’m not talking about late-inning drama. For a game that looked like it was over after 3 innings, the 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 […]

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.

ALCS: Detroit 1, Boston 1. ALCS Game 2: Boston 6, Detroit 5. Painful. The loss Sunday night is one game I will not review in its entirety. During the regular season, there was at least one (Toronto 8, Detroit 6) and probably a couple other games I forget where a sizable lead vanished and left […]

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 […]
