Tigers

The 2014 Royals, the 2006 Tigers and rooting for your own gut punch

All #Royals fans right now ⬇️ #TakeTheCrown pic.twitter.com/llp8CM0Q2i — Kansas City Royals (@Royals) October 15, 2014 The Royals won again. They probably will go to the World Series. They might win it. If they do, the Royals will have two championships since the Tigers’ last. That final fact prevented me from jumping into the Royals […]

JMMA postseason update: Blaine Hardy simply didn’t deserve to the make the Tigers’ ALDS roster

Everybody saw that eighth inning. Everybody saw the Tigers let a 4-3 deficit turn into a 12-3 deficit. Everybody saw the four pitchers used and Joba Chamberlain pitch to two batters and allow two runs. Look at the box score you’ll see Chamberlain’s infinity ERA and Joakim Soria’s four runs allowed in one-third of an inning pitched. […]

Checking in with Nate Fury: The man who’s no longer the biggest underdog in the Tigers’ system

How should somebody classify Nate Fury? Some terms technically describe him, but they’re a little misleading. He’s a Tigers draft pick, but not the high-profile-type you’re thinking of. The Tigers drafted him in the 36th round. He’s a prospect, but only by the most general definition.

An attempt to explain the unfathomable Joe Nathan 9th-inning experience

So…about that one time I told you not to watch the baseball regular season. I said it was already over, that the 31-22 Tigers would run away with the division. I said it wasn’t that the Tigers weren’t that good, just that the rest of their division was that bad. The Tigers have 16 games […]

Your update on the baseball winners of the JMMA says it’s time to give Blaine Hardy the championship belt

The first year of the JMMA award, Chris Bootcheck obliterated the International League and led all Triple-A All Stars in votes. The second year, Jose Alvarez made the major leagues and took a no-hitter almost five innings deep. Then, Bootcheck got called up to the Yankees and spent one glorious inning pitching to the team that […]

Ezequiel Carrera: The forgotten player that made the David Price trade possible

After the Detroit beat writers tweeted their stalking of Dave Dombrowski, after the Ken Rosenthal tweet the simply read Source: #Tigers get Price, after the MLB Network analysts freaked out on the air, after the Tigers pulled Austin Jackson from a game in the middle of an inning, after the full details of the trade trickled out, and […]
