Cabrera: Road hurdles no excuse for Tigers

The Tigers arrived in town around 4 a.m. CT Monday morning, faced the Astros 15 hours later and looked like they might have been sleepwalking against Brad Peacock and the Astros bullpen in a 1-0 loss.

Aggie Alex Wilson Having Success as Detroit Tigers Relief PItcher

They call him Everyday Alex. Everyday Alex Wilson The Detroit Tigers bullpen has been infamously plagued for about the past 10 years; Tigers fans understand the pain of having a lead go to waste in the 7th, 8th, or 9th inning like Aggie fans knew no lead was safe going into the second half of a football game in 2011. Amidst the plague, there has been an impressive amount of...

Let’s calm down about Anthony Gose

Yes, he hit 99 mph. He still has a long way to go. Anthony Gose may never play in center field again. It’s the kind of pronouncement a lot of people expected, given his subpar performance from seasons past. In his 2015 season, where he was the Detroit Tigers’ go-to guy in centerfield, Gose had a DRS of -12 and a UZR of -10.4. He was, for lack of a kinder term, terrible. So,...

Detroit Tigers: Anibal Sanchez demoted; Saupold recalled

To most fans, this demotion was long overdue as Sanchez has struggled badly for over two years now. In 2013, Sanchez led all of Major League Baseball in having the lowest ERA, but his performances have taken a nose dive since then, as he has been extremely prone to giving up...

The Tigers Have Found Another Slugger

When the Tigers signed Alex Avila over the winter, it wasn’t exactly a blockbuster. They paid him $2 million to re-join the organization and serve as the backup catcher to James McCann, and since his dad is the GM of the team, there was an easy narrative for those who wanted to criticize the organization for not doing more to upgrade a team reaching the end of its window to contend...

A new hope for the Detroit Tigers

The return of right fielder J.D. Martinez for the Detroit Tigers has been a very welcomed return. The 29-year old right fielder is batting .500 with five homeruns, 11 RBIs, and drawing nine walks since his return last Friday. For one week, these numbers are outstanding but it is unrealistic to think he will maintain these numbers. But Martinez’s return has been the only bright...

Francisco Rodriguez latest example of closers flaming out with Detroit Tigers

Some of the early storylines that are always worth keeping track of early in a baseball season are closers that may be replaced. Closers blowing saves and costing their team wins are an easy reactionary development to jump on, as many of us settle back into the pace of a MLB season and need to remember that there’s a long way to go and a lot of baseball to be played. But managers...

An Appreciation of Francisco Rodriguez

Francisco Rodriguez is perhaps getting closer to riding off into the sunset, at least as the analogy applies to ninth-inning and/or high-leverage responsibilities. The man dubbed K-Rod has, quite frankly, has been awful this season. He’s blown four saves already, and back-to-back opportunities in back-to-back days in Oakland over the weekend. On Sunday afternoon Ryon Healy did...
