Pregame 8: Detroit Tigers at San Diego Padres

11.04.2014 28 comments

The Tigers (5-2) are in San Diego, where it’s always baseball weather, for three against the Padres (3-6). Rick Porcello makes the start for Detroit, facing Andrew Cashner. Obviously, not much history between these two clubs, but there was one famous series (famous if you’re a Detroit or San Diego fan, anyway) back in 1984. […]

Game 2014.7: Tigers at Dodgers

4-2, 1st place, .5 games up. Magic number is 155 (I think). I managed to catch the Crawford double right as I went to bed last night. Needless to say I didn’t sleep well. Sanchez v. TBD tonight. Someone please post the lineups. I’m traveling, so the post-game may be a little late. Interesting stat […]

I’d like to start with a few thoughts on the first week. First of all, we got shorted by two games. Opening week off days are kryptonite to my baseball superman.The rain made things worse. Secondly, day games are awesome. Props to the Tigers’ scheduling powers that be. I love following as much as I […]

Before this season started, a lot of Tiger followers predicted that this year’s Tigers would win more one-run games than last year (20-26). I don’t think yesterday was what they had in mind. There was a lot to like about yesterday’s game (how about that Donkey!), but almost blowing a 6-run lead conjures up the […]

It was a dark and rainy afternoon, and the Tigers continued their winning ways, cruising to a 10-4 victory over Baltimore. The highlight of the game of course was Miguel Cabrera’s 2-run home run in the 8th inning, which also just happened to be his 2,000th career hit. Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, Mel Ott, Joe […]

Or is it Pre-Game? I’m never sure which way to go with that. At any rate, the Tigers will make another attempt at Game 3 of their perfect 162-0 season, which will include 81 walkoffs (or is it walk offs? walk-offs?), which is the max for that stat, as T Smith pointed out. Yesterday’s rainout […]

Tigers go for the sweep today, with Anibal “The Third Tenor” Sanchez going up against some guy in a cap we’ll pretend is not an “unknown” rookie, just to be safe.  No, he’s a grizzled veteran with a long history of success against Detroit. He’s virtually unhittable and it’s probably not even worth trying. Kelly […]

POST OF THE GAME: We’ll probably never know if Vince did that on purpose. 1: Scherzer was lost and a bit flustered. Hard to believe only 4 batters in this long inning. Billy Butler really did us a favor. 1: Jason Vargas did a number on Cabrera for the called third. 2: Collins comes in […]

They’re back at it today, with lefty Jason Vargas opposing Max Scherzer. The last time these two teams faced each other in game two of a three-game series, it was another 2013 nail-biter pitched by a couple guys since departed for the NL. Ervin Santana (so glad he’s gone) stymied the Tigers as usual, while […]

POST OF THE GAME: (You do need to step it up, though, guys and gals. Regular season now. Spring training is over.) Started off with great Opening Day enthusiasm. 90 minutes later I was in a bad mood, and the Tigers hadn’t even relinquished the lead yet. It wasn’t the game. It was the inability […]

(Read Kevin’s “Realism” first. It’s better, especially when you consider that he wrote it without looking, not even once. I am continually amazed by touch-typists. How do they do it? I’m all hunt and peck.) Here we go! The next “Play Ball!” and the 114th season of Detroit Tigers baseball will commence. The last 29 […]

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 […]
