‘Miscommunication’ magnifies Detroit Tigers lack of leadership

Forget about the Detroit Tigers’ comeback win. It was a fantastic victory for a club that needed it badly. Strip away Victor Martinez’s three-run triple that tied the score in the eighth inning. Take away James McCann’s walk-off home run to win the game in the ninth inning. If the Tigers don’t defeat the Chicago White Sox. 5-4, then the storyline is much different this...

Detroit Tigers: trading Cespedes makes sense ( + dollars)

Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is the Detroit Tigers most valuable trading piece and they should take advantage of it. The fact of the matter is that the Tigers are 39-36 and on the outside looking in of the playoff picture. While it is “only June,” it is also June, so the Tigers have had almost 3 months to distance themselves from the rest of the pack in the AL Central Division...

Game 2015.75: White Sox at Tigers

It seems to be finished raining all over Detroit, so we resume what is now a three-game series against the White Sox, with what should turn out to be a pitcher’s duel type of affair. If Samardzija vs. Price sounds familiar, it’s because they faced each other in Detroit on April 17th. In that one Samardzija went 8, and gave up only 1 run, while striking out 7 (no walks). Price...

Four external solutions to the Castellanos problem

      We can all admit that the Tigers have a black hole in the batting order at third base. Nick Castellanos has had a horrible sophomore season. His on OPS is the worst in the major leagues among qualifying third baseman and ninth worst among those who have enough at bats to qualify for the batting title. Castellanos’ glove has vastly improved. After checking in with -30...
