Andre Rienzo vs. Drew Smyly in the penultimate game of the series. May the real Drew Smyly please stand up. No more talk about “rust,” now.  May the sweet swings of Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila continue, so that we can move to worrying about/picking on someone else for a change. May the bullpen not […]

YOU SAID IT Vince in MN April 22, 2014 at 10:25 pm [edit] I just want Phil Coke to finally disappear. With the loss out of the way and no Sale to face, the stage is set for Detroit (9-7) to be Detroit (12-7). Avila. Cabrera. J.D.Martinez. Panas on Porcello. To take our mind off the offense, […]

YOU SAID IT Coleman April 21, 2014 at 8:41 pm [edit] Sanchez’ pitch count is way too low. First of four against Chicago in Detroit, last of the homestand before Lazy April is over and the Tigers transition into a road-heavy month of May. But he’s a professional. Minus the quotes and below the Joba, this is […]

Happy Easter everyone. Hopefully you’re spending the day relaxing with family (or without – which may be the shorter route to relax). Porcello takes on Hector Santiago in the actual rubber match of the series. This is a rematch of a late July game last summer when Santiago was in a White Sox uniform. The Tigers […]

Game 13 Postgame: Well, that sucked. Game 14 Pregame: You know, you gotta win series at home, so today is the linoleum game of the series if they are gonna have a chance at winning the series. Rationally, if you’re going to lose a game, it may as well be their 1 v. your 5. Smyly […]

Tigers made a move today to replenish a worn out bullpen, by bringing up righty Justin Miller from Toledo and sending down Tyler Collins. Since they have 10 games left on this home stand, and Collins has to stay down for 10 days, Miller should get a nice audition before the Tigers have to think […]

Detroit Tigers: 7-5, 1st place AL Central (up .5) The Tigers save the split in the abbreviated two-game series with Cleveland Thursday, winning 7-5.  The game seemed frantic at times–between the two teams there were 19 hits, 5 errors, and 5 stolen bases–but Detroit went home with the W. Thumbs down: Alex Gonzalez. His bat […]

Game 11 Postgame: Indians 3, Tigers 2 Wednesday night’s game started off badly, then looked better, then looked even better, then ended in a somewhat disappointing fashion. Anibal Sanchez averted a near-disaster after starting the game with back-to-back-to-back walks (the Research Department tells us he has only given up 10 leadoff walks his entire career; […]

Despite a division lead that was as big as 8 1/2 games in September, the Tigers ended up barely edging out the Cleveland Indians by one game–this despite the fact that Detroit owned the Indians themselves, putting up a remarkable 15-4 record against their rivals. The much anticipated rematch of last year’s Central Division contenders […]

SOUP DU JOUR Coleman April 13, 2014 at 6:48 pm [edit] We need to get Kelly back in the lineup. This Cabrera guy is killing us. Chase Headley was wearing his stone glove again, and that lent a wee bit of excitement to the top of the 9th, but otherwise, if you saw the 4th, you saw […]

It’s the first rubber game of 2014, and hopefully it will satisfy our rubber soul, as the Tigers (6-3) make another day trip to San Diego (4-7) and then get their ticket to ride back home for a day off and then the Cleveland Indians. Max Scherzer will face Tyson Wood. The Incredible 2014 Detroit […]

SOUP DU JOUR Vince in MN April 12, 2014 at 9:41 pm [edit] What makes you think Avila can hit the hittable pitches? Ah, now there’s a win for ya. Time for the postgame. You saw it and reacted. Now you’ve had a chance to reflect and hopefully have more to say. Have at it. But I’ll […]
