Oh shiiiiins.

15.03.2014 41 comments

The Jose Iglesias shinstorm has officially hit the fan. I don’t know if someone stepped in a pile of his shins or what, but ESPN is reporting that the injury which kept him sidelined late last year could keep him sidelined for most of 2014. The injury has been rather mysterious with a bunch of […]

Welcome, Ian Kinsler

05.03.2014 14 comments

Ian Kinsler was an instant fan favorite from the minute he broke into the big leagues in 2006.  A hard swinging, fast, top of the lineup guy who plays old school baseball (including the socks) and is a female favorite (so says my permanent roommate). He had a 20/20 year in 2007, and 30/30 year […]

DTW News and Notes 4-14-13

A few notes to get you through the off-day. Interesting Numbers: 1: number of errors thus far by the Tigers (Scherzer’s missed pickoff, which may have cost us a W) 1: number of hits by a right-handed hitter off of Anibal Sanchez this season. 5: number of saves by Jason Grilli this year. Here is […]

Don’t Ask Dotel (about Miguel Cabrera)

22.02.2013 26 comments

Is there trouble brewing in the clubhouse? Or is there nothing else to talk about? The fallout from the Yahoo article I posted on Wednesday has been at least measurable, if not significant. Of course, Dotel clumsily backtracked yesterday (think Delmon Young in LF) and apologized to Miggy, So what do you guys think? I think […]

Kept the MVP in the D

16.11.2012 87 comments

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 […]

Game 2012.95: White Sox at Tigers

21.07.2012 23 comments

50-44, 2nd place, .5 games behind CWS. Wow, what a game last night. Other than a very poorly located 2-0 fastball, Verlander pitched a gem. The most incredible pitch of the night came in the 8th when a 100 mph 0-1 fastball literally sawed Gordon Beckham’s bat in half, on a check swing no less. […]

Delmon Young Arrested

Lots of news today. The rare double post before 9am central. Delmon got drunk and pushed some guy down in Midtown last night. Is it possible that we’ve already hit our low point of the season? I laughed when I read “powerhouse arm.”

Slimmed Down Miggy and Other News

16.02.2012 16 comments

Alex Avila is reporting that Miggy is “20-25″ lbs lighter.  Can you tell (images)? Tom Gage breaks down the 40 man here.  They are at 24 signed after yesterday. Kate Upton is moonlighting as a spokesmodel for MLB2K12. See JV getting just a tip or two here. Comerica is getting a face lift.  Look for […]

VMart Likely Out for the Year

17.01.2012 9 comments

VMart managed to tear his ACL in off-season workouts…he’s likely out for the year. Just sat in on the DD conf call (thanks billfer), DD didn’t say anything too unexpected.  They just found out over the last few days when VMart called Kevin Rand to tell him about a knee injury. There is a chance […]

Verlander’s No-Hitter

09.05.2011 8 comments

After Verlander’s second start of the year I commented that JV seemed to be throwing his change-up more on crucial counts.  It was not rooted in any scout-like acuity, but just a casual observation from a guy who watches too much Tigers baseball much like you do.  My recollection is that JV primarily has relied on […]

Joel Zumaya to the 60-day DL, maybe forever?

18.04.2011 10 comments

(picture from www.freep.com) I’m not sure that this is news to anyone, but don’t expect Zumaya to pitch anytime soon, or this season, or perhaps never again. As unsurprising as this news is, it’s still difficult to swallow because I don’t think any of us will forget the magic he brought in 2006 nor what […]
