JMMA winner preview week: Jose Alvarez, the other Jose Alvarez and both of their quests for redemption

At the start of the most recent James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending) competition, I told the story of the other Jose Alvarez. He was a police chief in Caseyville, a small village outside of St. Louis, and had bogged down the Google News Alerts that were set up to capture any news about […]

The James Mungro Memorial Award finale: A sputter at the end and a controversial finish

The last time we checked in on our competition for the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending), we had the greatest comeback of all time still alive, a pitcher with a chance at a scoreless spring training and the people’s champ. Now we have none of those. Jhan Marinez started the spring competition […]

The king is gone: Tigers trade International Pitcher of Mystery Jose Alvarez to the Angels

It’s black Friday.

Now he won’t even be there to see it go. […]

The five worst giveaways of the 2014 Detroit Tigers season

Don’t hyperventilate, but we’re 10 days away from Opening Day. It’s time to figure out which Tigers games you’re going to attend this year. Since you either have a job, are poor, or both you’re going to want to pick your spots. Going to the wrong game is a waste of money and a waste […]

Five players headed into this week. Three came out of it. One of them might be the most unlikely candidate of […]

Know your James Mungro Memorial Award Nominee: Francisco Martinez, the conflicted one

(The four other remaining James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending until at least football season) all got their own post, so it’s only fair that Francisco Javier Martinez gets his.) Francisco Martinez is tough to read. He’s lives simultaneously on both poles. Except for Ezequiel Carrera, he probably has the best chance of […]

Your James Mungro Memorial Award update: In which this turns into the best competition ever

This is the fifth version of the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending). While the award’s history is short in time, it’s long in events. We found what possibly could be the most entertaining pitcher of a generation in the first go-round and a fun-loving offensive lineman who has a fetish for weird […]

Your James Mungro Memorial Award update gets bad before it gets good

We’re one week into spring training and/or the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending) competition. The Tigers have played six of their 33 scheduled spring training games. There have been some spectacular performances and, for the most part, they haven’t been in a good way. But before we get to those, we need […]
