Detroit Tigers: What Nathan injury means

Unfortunately, closer Joe Nathan is the blow the bullpen took as he will not be one of those arms this season.

Tribe to take on hot starter in series opener with Detroit

Shane Greene just missed starting a series finale against his former team. Instead, it's coming against the worst team in the AL. The right-hander has been one of the best pitchers in the majors through his first three starts with the Detroit Tigers, and Friday night's opener of a three-game home set against the Cleveland Indians should provide a favorable opportunity to reach 4...

Justin Verlander, Kate Upton attend Canucks playoff game (Video)

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and girlfriend Kate Upton are apparently hockey fans, as they attended Thursday night's Vancouver Canucks playoff Game 5 against Calgary. Verlander is still recovering from a triceps strain, and it looks like he's used the time out of the spotlight to grow a massive beard. Verlander may as well call himself Grizzly Adams now. Seriously,...

Citing a source close to the pitcher, George A. King III of the New York Post reports that since Price “loves”...

Price’s Owners Drop F-Bombs Like Bryan

Apparently, it was never the elevation in Coors. It was because it was cold in Colorado. Or at least that's what the Yanks/Tigers game looked like last night while it was played in Arctic temps (granted, a hot day in the Arctic) and snow. Other teams may get some ideas that it's all about the cold. "Let's get Howard, Utley, Galvis and Asche on that side of the air conditioner...

Game 2015.15: Yankees at Tigers

As good as Monday’s game was, the Tigers dribbled through Tuesday’s game like an egregiously under-inflated basketball.  It’s not that the game wasn’t close; The Lobster, despite a shaky start, got through 6 innings with only one run, and the Tigers went into the 7th down only 1-0. In fact Detroit had the winning run at the plate in the bottom of the 9th. But somehow this...

How the Tigers Won the Doug Fister Trade

Detroit Tigers’ general manager Dave Dombrowski is no stranger to big trades, and he usually comes out on the winning end. Since taking over the Tigers in 2002, Dombrowski has turned a perennial cellar team into an AL powerhouse. During his time, the Tigers have won four division titles and two pennants. Despite his success with the club, Dombrowski was under fire last off-season...

Do the Detroit Tigers have a closer dilemma?

With Joakim Soria being four for four on save opportunities, it looks like there will be a closer competition in Detroit. Popular vote would say keep Joakim Soria there because he has had two easy saves against Pittsburgh this past week, compared to Nathan who makes the game more interesting when he comes in. I also say keep in Soria because he has closer experience too (most saves...

This was the 2nd time the three franchises teamed up to make a trade and the first ended up working beautifully for the Tigers. The deal saw multiple pieces change hands but most...

Reports of the Tigers’ demise were greatly exaggerated

Maybe it was their failure in the postseason against Baltimore last October (they lost seven of their last nine play off games). Maybe it was worries about their injuries and old age. Maybe it was boredom, refusing to pick the same team as always to win it all, but for some reason the sports writers of American (including those for this site) had essentially pronounced the Detroit...

Detroit Tigers off to historically torrid start

For Detroit Tigers fans of a certain age, a fast start to the regular season is nothing new.  In 1984 the Motor City Kitties rocketed out to a 35-5 record through the first 40 games, a feat which has never been duplicated. It is unlikely a team is soon going to duplicate that feat, but this year’s Tigers are certainly looking capable of matching that season’s total of 104 wins...
