Tigers vs. Twins Preview: It’s time to play spoiler

Screw the Twins. Let’s knock them out of the playoffs.

For the last few weeks, many people on this site — myself included, to a certain extent — have been championing the Tigers’ drive towards a higher pick in next year’s MLB draft. There are plenty of benefits to this pseudo-tanking. A higher pick generally results in a better prospect, though one or two spots might not make a big difference. The Tigers would also receive more bonus pool money for a higher pick, which can pay...

Detroit Tigers News: Time is running out on Brad Ausmus

The season, and Brad Ausmus time in Detroit, are winding down. Bye Bye Brad We wrote about the likelihood that Brad Ausmus would not be extended as the Tigers’ manager yesterday. Lynn Henning of the Detroit News also weighed in with some of the verbal cues the Tigers’ manager has been sending that his time in Detroit is coming to an end. It’s not a lock yet perhaps, but it sure feels like a parting is in the air. Sports Illustrated, CBS Sports, as well as Yahoo Sports all weighed in...

Zim, Tigers look to play spoiler vs. Twins

As the Tigers won four straight American League Central titles from 2011-14, the Twins were left trying to play the role of spoiler down the stretch against Detroit. But the tables have turned, as it's now Minnesota competing for its first postseason berth since 2010, and the Tigers are the ones looking to hurt the Twins' chances.

Athletics 3, Tigers 2: Bats fall silent in Anibal Sanchez’s likely final home start

Sanchez pitched well enough for the win, but his teammates couldn’t pick up the slack.

For the second game in a row, Anibal Sanchez harkened back to his glory days, pitching well enough to deliver the Detroit Tigers a win. After striking out 11 White Sox hitters last Friday, Sanchez fanned eight Oakland Athletics in six strong innings on Wednesday. Despite only allowing one run, Sanchez was handed the loss in his likely final home start at Comerica Park. Detroit tacked on a couple of late...

Tigers homestand is likely Brad Ausmus’ last as manager

We’re four years into his tenure and there is little case for Ausmus to keep his job. Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila may yet surprise us and choose to keep manager Brad Ausmus at the helm as the franchise embarks on a rebuilding project. But it feels like the end is here. After four years of frustration and disappointment, it’s time to make a change. Avila continued to be naturally circumspect in his recent comments to the Detroit News. He was asked whether the Tigers would...

Ausmus coy about future as Tigers enter rebuild

The remark from Brad Ausmus came at the tail end of a question about Nicholas Castellanos batting in the middle of the order and whether that would continue long-term.

Tigers vs. Athletics Preview: Offense still isn’t Detroit’s problem

Even after injuries and trades, the Tigers are still scoring runs.

Given everything their offense has gone through this year, the Detroit Tigers have no business scoring runs. They traded J.D. Martinez and Justin Upton, players who combined for 44 home runs and 5.6 fWAR in 182 games for Detroit this season. They lost Martinez, Miguel Cabrera, and Victor Martinez to injuries for long stretches of the season. Cabrera and Victor Martinez have also had their offensive production sapped by those...

The Detroit Tigers need to keep Nicholas Castellanos for the long haul

Time is wasting on an opportunity the Tigers can’t afford to miss. While his team struggles to the end of a bitter 2017 campaign, Nicholas Castellanos has been making a lot of noise lately. The Detroit Tigers’ new right fielder last went hitless in a game on September 2. That game is his only 0-fer since August 28. He has a new position, a lengthy hitting streak, and a second chance to turn himself into a productive everyday major league player. The Tigers may yet have a second chance of...

Detroit Tigers News: The 2018 Tigers will be hard to recognize

The roster overhaul is only beginning. With the 2017 season mercifully winding down, most have begun looking forward to what a 2018 Detroit Tigers squad would look like.

Blown lead in 8th eats at veteran Wilson

Alex Wilson saw the plethora of young relievers in the Tigers' bullpen down the stretch and thought of Miguel Cabrera's young son, Christopher, wearing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack earlier in the year.

Bullpen can’t hold lead after Tigers claw back against Athletics

The Tigers gave fans a wild contest on Tuesday night, but in the end it just wasn't enough. After several lead changes, they threatened with a late rally, but couldn't pull the trigger and ultimately lost 9-8 to the Athletics.

The back and forth, bipolar nature of the game was apparenbt from the get go. In the top of the first inning, Tigers starter Chad Bell would strike out the side in a smooth 1-2-3 inning. However in the...

Tigers may play Andrew Romine at all 9 positions in same game next week

The Detroit Tigers don’t have a lot left to play for, but manager Brad Ausmus could give the fans something cool to end the season. Ausmus says he is giving thought to having Andrew Romine play all nine positions in the same game. If that were to happen, Ausmus has his eye on the Tigers’ season finale at Minnesota on Oct. 1. Four players in modern baseball history have played all nine positions in a game. Shane Halter, in 2000 for the Tigers, was the latest to do it. Romine has seen...
