Game 2014.19: White Sox at Tigers

A White Sox offense that just won't leave us alone deserves a dose of Max Scherzer. Detroit gets to face a lefty in Jose Quintana, and I think that's good news. The main thing is that they get to bat again and might score some runs, and it might not take so many this time, especially if Max can go (9?… [the full story]

YOU SAID IT Only Tiger Fan in Mississippi April 23, 2014 at 6:46 pm I think he meant “Julio.” 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… [the full story]

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… [the full story]

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… [the full story]

Game 2014.15: LAA at Det

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 full story]

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 […]

Howdy, friends and neighbors. The Tigers (5-3) try to get back on the righteous path tonight against the Padres (4-6), with our hero Justin Verlander carrying the bulk of our hopes for putting up a W to counter the L. He’ll be facing Ian Kennedy, who has the possible misfortune of facing a lineup thoroughly […]

First pitch strikes, working the bottom of the zone. He makes it look easy. A fine reenactment of a 1984 World Series […]

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. […]

I only watched enough of the 9th to become, in order, frustrated, worried, concerned, scared, enraged, relieved, excited, anxious, and finally, content. Joe Nathan is a problem. He has now allowed 5 ER in 3 2/3. Blowups will happen, I’m not worried about that. The problem is 4 walks. There is no excuse for not […]

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 […]

1. Max was not sharp early. Lots of hits. Ks and double plays will fix that. He got into a groove in the middle innings and stayed there until the 7th. 2. Lots of weak outs vs. Haren. His stuff was good. I know we like to blame the Tiger bats, but sometimes you gotta […]

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 […]
