Game 2014.12: Indians at Tigers

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… [the full story]

Game 2014.11: Indians at Tigers

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… [the full story]

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 the… [the full story]

Pregame 10: Detroit Tigers at San Diego Padres

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… [the full story]

Now you’ve had a chance to reflect and hopefully have more to say. Have at it. But I’ll go… [the full story]

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 […]

It’s safe to come out now. The you-know-what is over. I don’t know what it was supposed to prove, with the Tigers not in it, but I guess they’d already scheduled the event and couldn’t cancel on such short notice. (NOTE TO FUTURE GENERATIONS IN SEARCH OF CONTEXT: At this point in the offseason, the […]

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 […]

(credit to Detroit News for the image. Note to Detroit News – we’re not making any money off of this. Still, if you want us to take it down, just post here and we will) 3-2, 8 more to go. Look, I’m happy to be here. I am. It’s better than the alternative. But champagne […]
