TIGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

How much does it cost to create a single run?

What is one run worth? In recent years, we have seen the salaries of Major League Baseball players increase dramatically.  Almost every year there seems to be a new record setting deal signed, which shows that teams are willing to go to great lengths to sign a player who they desire. For the interest of accurately gauging the cost one run created, we will take statistics from the...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: a philosophical debate

So far, the Detroit Tigers have yet to pull the trigger on an apparently inevitable trade deadline move to shore up their bullpen. They have inquired on guys such as Joakim Soria, Joaquin Benoit, Neal Cotts, Jonathan Papelbon, Antonio Bastardo, and surely many others that we don’t know about. If you’re following things closely then chances are you sit on one side of the fence...

Verlander says he's rediscovered his old ways

PHOENIX -- Detroit right-hander Justin Verlander made a little delivery tweak after a pregame video check, and he said he feels like a new man . . . or rather, like the old Verlander.  The Verlander who won 91 games, a Cy Young and an MVP award over the past five years. Ten minutes before he took the field for stretch before his Monday start, Verlander took a look at some old shots...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: Jonathan Papelbon edition

The trade deadline is upon us as it is just over a week away and for the Detroit Tigers, making a move for help in the bullpen is the area to address still as they look to pull away in the American League Central.

Detroit Tigers: Is Torii Hunter Hall of Fame worthy?

It wasn’t too long ago that Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter was one of the best center fielders in baseball, at the plate and in the field. Hunter, now 39 years old, won nine-consecutive Gold Gloves from 2001-09, patrolling center field for the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Angels. He dominated the position for the good part of a decade. As Hunter plays in the final year...

Embarrassing: Two grown men wrestle over Torii Hunter home run ball (video)

Torii Hunter hit a two-run homer off Josh Tomlin to put the Detroit Tigers ahead by a score of 4-0 in an eventual 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians at Comerica Park on Sunday, but it is what happened once the ball cleared the fence that makes the round-tripper a more compelling — and embarrassing […] The post Embarrassing: Two grown men wrestle over Torii Hunter home run ball...

Detroit Tigers’ Brad Ausmus May Be Bad Manager Hiding Behind Good Team

(Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons) The Detroit Tigers’ disastrous series against the Cleveland Indians concluded Sunday night and if there is one thing the series yet again showed, it is that Brad Ausmus either isn’t ready or isn’t a good enough manager to help a team contend for a World Series. Mismanagement of the bullpen and the starting pitching is often the hardest thing...

Battle royale for homer in Tribe game

In the fourth inning of Sunday's Indians and Tigers game, Torii Hunter deposited a ball into the left field stands and a battle of strength and perseverance broke out between two men. The use of the fetal position/head-block by the Tigers' fan is just a veteran savvy move. Have to hope the Tribe fan was wrestling that ball away in hopes of chucking it 200 feet back into the...

Tigers closer Nathan falters again as trade deadline approaches
