Detroit Tigers: Ian Kinsler fitting in nicely

When the Detroit Tigers dealt Prince Fielder to the Texas Rangers in exchange for Ian Kinsler, many Tigers fans accepted the trade as a “salary dump” and others questioned Kinsler’s ability to consistently produce at the tender age of 31. 14 games into the season, Kinsler is showing fans in Detroit exactly what he can bring to a ballclub. Spark Kinsler has been primarily featured...

Detroit Tigers: Bullpen still struggles

With what seemed like to be an upgrade for the Detroit Tigers this offseason, has been anything but an upgrade. The Tigers bullpen not only continues to struggle in games, but there is even a chance that they look worse than they did last year. Closer Joe Nathan who was supposed to come in and bring stability has done everything but that. In six games this season, Nathan has an ERA...

Is Miguel Cabrera this generation’s Hank Aaron?

On June 20, 2003, Miguel Cabrera struck out in his first big league at bat.  He’d get the last laugh however. In the bottom of the eleventh inning the 20-year-old rookie hit a two-run home run to help his then-Florida Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the then-Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Now, I bring that up only to awkwardly segue into this. Friday, the reigning American League MVP turned...

Why do the Detroit Tigers have two different “D’s”

I think we can all agree that the Detroit Tigers boast some of the best looking home uniforms in all of major league baseball. The simple, two-tone appearance of dark blue and white creates a clean, pure look that we’d like to think is closely related to our nation’s pastime. But of course, what puts the overall look over the top is that stunning Old English D. The Old English...

Game 2014.12: Postgame – Indians 5, Tigers 7

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 continues to wither (.167) and his arm was errant. Justin...

Video: Ian Kinsler’s 3-Run Homer Sparks Detroit Tigers’ Win Over Cleveland

So far, the Ian Kinsler-for-Prince Fielder trade has been a decisive victory for the Detroit Tigers. With Fielder struggling out of the gate in Texas, Kinsler remains one of the hottest bats in Detroit’s lineup. His latest key moment came Thursday afternoon, with the Tigers trailing the Indians by two. After Cleveland starter Danny Salazar walked Alex Avila and Alex Gonzalez to...

After an inconsistent season while pitching under the pressure of a sizable new contract, Justin Verlander has gotten off to a solid start in 2014. No matter how well he pitches, though, the Detroit Tigers are going to need to start putting more runs on the board.

Schedule, rainouts delay Smyly's first start

DETROIT -- Drew Smyly will be a starting pitcher again someday, but it hasn't happened yet this season. Brad Ausmus promises that Smyly will eventually get to pitch in the rotation spot that he earned with a strong season in the bullpen last year. He was originally scheduled to start Wednesday, but Tuesday's postponement has moved that back once again. "It has been hard...

Minor league team holding Seinfeld night with Keith Hernandez bobblehead

One of the greatest collisions of baseball and pop culture occurred when Keith Hernandez appeared on Seinfeld in 1992. The former Mets first baseman was a guest-star on a one-hour episode titled “The Boyfriend,” in which Jerry meets Hernandez and the two strike up a friendship (fueled by Seinfeld’s man-crush). To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Seinfeld‘s TV debut, the...

Tigers Great: Nathan’s “Dead Arm” is an Excuse

When Joe Nathan signed a two-year, $20 million to close games for the Detroit Tigers, the team was pretty sure they had found their closer. Unfortunately, the 39-year-old hasn’t lived up to expectations and earlier this week went public with what he thinks the problem is.  Dead arm. Joe Nathan says he has a ‘dead arm” going on right now, and that he’s still “fine-tuning...
