No matter where you stand on some of the social issues that define the United States today, the right to an opinion and belief is paramount in an open society. But this is somewhat limited, at least according to some, when it comes to professional athletes. Should they engage in conversations about politics and religion? And how does their active participation in some of the most...

Robinson's death was confirmed Monday by both the Tigers and the Kansas-based Natural Baseball Academy, where he served as a pitching director, coach and instructor. They did not release any information...

Were it not for that sweep-for-the-taking, regrettable Twins series at Comerica, this is a 16-2 run…
So the Detroit Tigers are now:
The Detroit Tigers won 90 regular season games this season, but got swept 3-0 by the Baltimore Orioles in the ALDS. After finishing second in the Major Leagues in runs scored, the Tigers look to be a powerhouse moving forward, barring they can improve upon a staff that was 24th in ERA. One important move that could be made in the off season is the re-signing of free agent Victor...
When 2015 opening day rolls around for the Tigers, they very well could be without one of their best players.
After undergoing successful ankle/foot surgery Wednesday, according to Bob Knigtengale of USA Today the procedure could hold Cabrera out for opening day in 2015.
The severity of Miguel Cabrera's ankle injury stunned the #Tigers. He had 2 screws inserted in ankle and may...
The big news before the 2014 season even started for the Detroit Tigers was when starting pitcher and recent Cy Young award winner Max Scherzer turned down a 6-year contract extension worth $144 million.
This move could’ve been one of the reasons why the Tigers went and acquired pitcher David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays minutes before the trade deadline this year.
With that being...
The Detroit Tigers won 90 regular season games and the American League Central division title, but lost in four games to the Baltimore Orioles in the ALDS. The clear weakness of the Tigers was the pitching staff which was 24th in the league in ERA at 4.01. The starting rotation was solid, 11th in the league in quality starts, but the bullpen is in need of revamping. One pitcher...
Detroit Tigers fans — and aficionados of baseball history — have lamented the vacating of Tiger Stadium after the 1999 season. That feeling of loss was compounded when the ballpark was demolished in 2008.
The field is still available for use, thanks in large part to the efforts of organizations like The Navin Field Grounds Crew. Just last week, a new redevelopment proposal for...
Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias missed all of the 2014 season with stress fractures in both of his shins. However, he should be ready by spring training, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski told Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press.#475760903 / gettyimages.comIglesias came to the Tigers from the Red Sox as part of a three-team trade (including the Chicago White Sox...
The Detroit Tigers were eliminated from the playoffs for the fourth straight year without a championship, as one of the clearest teams in win-now mode fell short yet again.
Now, with starting pitcher Max Scherzer and designated hitter Victor Martinez headed for free agency and the Kansas City Royals playing deep into the playoffs, there seems to be a train of thought emerging...
When Alex Gonzalez is a team's best option to start at shortstop on opening day, it could be a long year at the position. But that is the situation that the Detroit Tigers were placed in when starting shortstop, Jose Iglesias went down with injuries to both shins that caused him to miss the entire season.#175339198 / gettyimages.com Craig Calcaterra of NBCsports has reported...
In order to get back to the World Series next year, the Detroit Tigers have some offseason issues that need to be addressed and some questions that need to be answered.
1. Will Max Scherzer come back?
To me this seems like a no-brainer, but anything can happen. Pitcher Max Scherzer was the Tigers best pitcher in 2014 as he led the team with 18 wins, 252 strikeouts, and an ERA of...
Yesterday, Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski held his annually depressing ‘State of the Tigers’ postseason presser. Among the things mentioned were adding a left-handed hitter, a centerfielder, and improving the bench.
Which of these categories does the recently ex-Texas Ranger Alex Rios fit into? Well, none of them of course. But that doesn’t mean he’s not worth considering...
After briefly contemplating retirement after the Tigers’ early postseason exit, veteran outfielder Torii Hunter looks like he may be having second thoughts that is if he can return to Detroit.
According to Jason Beck of MLB.com, Hunter (39) who’s coming off a two-year, $26-million deal, said “If the Tigers want me back, we will work that out hopefully. Other than that, I’m...

An extremely busy and important offseason awaits Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski, after his team was swept out of the ALDS by Baltimore.
Dombrowski has never been shy to pull the trigger on a big trade, nor has he hesitated to throw money at free agents....

The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Detroit nine that day:
The score stood two to zero with but one inning more to play.
Time and again the script had played, the ending all the same.
And so with great remorse the crowd did watch this final game.
In silence sat the Tigers fans, stuck in deep despair; The rest
Clung to that foolish hope which springs eternal in the breast;
