Game 2017.44: Tigers at Astros

Tue, 23 May 2017 22:58:14 +0000

I don’t have too much to say about last night’s game, other than it was a pitching duel, as expected. Fulmer is good. Jordan Zimmermann? Hmm. Bleacher Report thinks he might be one of the worst free agent pitcher signings ever. The best thing possible for the Tigers would be for JZ to roll off […]

Game 2017.43: Tigers at Astros

Tue, 23 May 2017 00:22:18 +0000

Well, we’ve played over 40 games now, so it’s the point of the season, according to Sparky, where we can tell what a team is made of. Do you know what ill really tell you what the Tigers are made of? How they do on this brutal road trip. it’s only a mid-coast trip, not […]

Game 2017.42: Rangers at Tigers

Mon, 22 May 2017 00:52:12 +0000

The Tigers are in the limelight tonight on ESPN. Old Man Hamstring and all, Ian Kinsler can’t resist that, and neither should you. Miggy came back with a vengeance last night. Alex Avila apparently sold his soul to the baseball devil. Andrew Romine is in the lineup because..well, because he’s going to go all Caesar […]

Game 2017.41: Rangers at Tigers

Sun, 21 May 2017 01:23:24 +0000

Miggy is back. Sort of. He is DH’ing, which doesn’t always work for everyone. Jumpin’ John Hicks is back, they could have used him. Alex Avila is hitting 2nd, for the first time ever (he started at cleanup for the first time ever yesterday). Today’s Lineup: Ian Kinsler, 2B Alex Avila, 1B Miguel Cabrera, DH […]

Game 2017.40: Rangers at Tigers

Fri, 19 May 2017 20:39:12 +0000

The Rangers are hot, they’ve won 9 in a row. The Tigers are without Victor Martinez and Miguel Cabrera (Victor will miss the series on paternity leave. OK, there are 4 or 5 months a year where you wouldn’t have to miss games, there are ways to time this stuff you know). No matter. The […]

Game 2017.39: Orioles at Tigers

Thu, 18 May 2017 17:36:27 +0000

Last night was a good win, dedicated to every fan who has ever said a player was “due,” because if anyone was due, it was Tyler “Fingers” Collins. Miggy has an oblique strain, and will probably be out the rest of the home stand, but is not expected to end up on the DL. JZ, […]

Game 2017.38: Orioles at Tigers

Wed, 17 May 2017 23:27:51 +0000

The Tigers had a very exciting game last night. In different circumstances, that JD Martinez grand slam could have ended up on the season-end highlights of the year. Justin Wilson was and has been awesome, but when he gave up that dinger to Trumbo (who happens to be one of the hottest hitters in MLB […]

Game 2017.37: Orioles at Tigers

Tue, 16 May 2017 22:54:16 +0000

The Tigers have two quick 3-game series, before a long road trip, not the friendliest stretch of their schedule. Today’s WAR What is it Good For? Lineup: Ian Kinsler, 2B Nick Castellanos, 3B Miguel Cabrera, 1B Victor Martinez, DH Justin Upton, LF JD Martinez RF Mikie Mahtook, CF James McCann, C Jose Iglesias, SS Pitching: […]

Game 2017.36: Tigers at Angels

Sun, 14 May 2017 19:32:21 +0000

After a Jud-inspired JD Martinez performance, the Tigers now have a chance to close out a West Coast trip with a winning record, which doesn’t happen every day.  The only thing better than watching JD go long twice was seeing Justin Wilson blow through the 9th in 1-2-3 fashion. That feels good. In other news […]

Game 2017.35: Tigers at Angels

Sat, 13 May 2017 21:42:01 +0000

J.D. Martinez returned, and squibbed a single. Jose Iglesias made a great play at short. A bunch of other things also happened, none of which were worth staying awake for. Zimmermann wasn’t horrible, but he certainly was not good. The Tigers were probably looking for more than “not horrible” when they gave him that contract. […]

Game 2017.34: Tigers at Angels

Sat, 13 May 2017 02:24:12 +0000

J.D. Martinez is back! The lineup is now starting to look like the lineup we expected to see this season. Jim Adduci to the DL with an oblique injury. Today’s Lineup: Ian Kinsler, 2B Nick Castellanos, 3B Miguel Cabrera, 1B Victor Martinez, DH Justin Upton, LF JD Martinez RF Alex Avila, C Andrew Romine, CF […]

Game 2017.32: Tigers at Diamondbacks

Thu, 11 May 2017 00:28:15 +0000

The Tigers finally made the big decision, and there’s me without internet access. It was a decision that seemed somehow both inevitable, but still surprising.  It will be interesting to see what, if anything, they do with Frankie now that he is no longer the closer. Today’s Lineup: Andrew Romine, CF Tyler Collins, CF Miguel […]

Game 2017.30: Tigers at A’s

Sun, 07 May 2017 18:53:01 +0000

Well, Frankie had me fooled. Two quick outs and two strikes on the 3rd guy, and it looked like we were about to get treated to the elusive clean save. You know what happened: a walk, a double (lefties are killing him), and a two-run single. I think closers are over-rated even when they do […]

Game 2017.29: Tigers at A’s

Sun, 07 May 2017 00:04:35 +0000

As JD Martinez begins his rehab assignment ( 2 hits at DH), his fill-in is making a pretty good show of it. Jim Adduci had a clutch bases loaded triple to put the game out of reach, and continues to put up numbers that would be nice even for JD Martinez: so far in 37 […]

Game 2017.28: Tigers at A’s

Fri, 05 May 2017 22:47:28 +0000

Game 28 was supposed to be yesterday, but that one was called swiftly. Could it have been because the Tigers had a West Coast train to catch at night? (The home team gets the call on postponing a game before it starts; once it starts it is the umpires’ call). Jud is already forecasting disaster […]

  • Strikeouts
    Saber geekiness from Tom Tango. A strikeout is just another out, in terms of the run value of the out. But cutting down on one's strikeouts is a good thing (in the wallet).
