Justin Verlander ‘forced’ Kate Upton to watch his 2007 no-hitter on Opening Day

Justin Verlander and wife Kate Upton, along with toddler daughter Genevieve, hunkered down on the couch Thursday for some television, and the Houston Astros ace shared on social media how he felt completely entitled to commandeer the remote control. With Major League Baseball of course on hiatus amid the COVID-19 pandemic and Thursday’s originally scheduled Opening Day unfortunately passing without a single game being played, the only thing baseball fans could do is seek out content...

MLB and the players’ union have agreed to conditions concerning service time and the amateur draft.

The biggest news of the past week came on Thursday night, when Major League Baseball and Major League Players Association came to a tentative agreement that would clear the way for a 2020 season. The two parties agreed to terms concerning key economic issues such as player service time and this summer’s amateur draft.

In regards to...

Best-loved Detroit Tigers bracket: Round One, part two

We haven’t even gotten to the really tough ones yet.

When I proposed doing a best-loved Tigers bracket I thought it would be an all-in-good-fun way to keep everyone engaged during the extended offseason. I should have known it would have also involved some very passionate tweets and comments from everyone.

A reminder: the brackets were random. A cruel twist of fate paired Miggy and Ty, I didn’t do it to personally hurt you.

The likely Tram vs. Kaline pairing though... while not...

With the infield and the outfield now covered, it’s time to turn our attention to the pitching staff.

On what would have been opening day for Major League Baseball we are instead left with re-broadcasts of old games, March Madness-style best-of brackets and fantasy drafts. Here at Bless You Boys we have been following the lead of Detroit Tigers Twitter in a fun draft game that allows the fans to build their own classic Tigers team using a...

The 2020 season has been postponed, but we’re not letting that keep us from enjoying Opening Day.

Today is the day baseball fans have been waiting for all winter. Unfortunately, Opening Day has been postponed and there won’t be any live baseball played today. However, with much of the world isolating themselves at home, MLB is attempting to simulate the Opening Day experience by offering fans of every team a game to get excited about....

Is it about the Detroit Tigers? No. Should you watch it? Yes.

We are one day away from what should have been Opening Day, and with more and more folks working from home, Netflix has taken the opportunity to release one of the most insane documentary series I have ever witnessed.

Below there will be some spoilers in the review, but please know that anything I say cannot remotely approach just how wild this series gets. We are reviewing it here...

The first four of thirty-two contenders, are you ready?

When we started out with the idea for this challenge, the assumption was that 16 players would be more than enough to do a suitable bracket. But between your incredible suggestions and others brought up by the Bless You Boys staff, we came up with a 32-player bracket.

Over the coming week we’ll be exploring the first round players and their legacy with the team, four players at a...

You’ve already selected your infield in our previous post, now here’s your chance to fill in your outfield.

Last Saturday, I published a post outlying a fun draft game in which fans can build their own classic Tigers infield using a fixed allotment of money to buy various players with assigned values. Tigers Twitter released its second part on Monday which allows you to now put together your ideal outfield.

So many legends.

I hope everyone out there is adjusting to what appears to be the new normal for the world we live in. With various levels of social distancing and sheltering in place being implemented, I have found myself with a little more time at home without some of my normal distractions.

While the MLB season continues to be postponed there have been much to keep fans occupied on social media.

The official Detroit Tigers Twitter account posted a fun game on Friday where fans are given an allotment of $16 with which they have to spend on various retired former infielders. The notable names are arranged into tiers according to their monetary value.

You have $16.

We’re living through unprecedented times, but despite the doom and gloom there are still things to look forward to.

What day are we on with no baseball? Day 7? Day 8? Day 900? Regardless, we’re all starting to get a bit stir-crazy whether we’re in self-quarantine, social distancing, or have to work still and just need a distraction.

In addition, they have made plans to assist their minor league players.

On Tuesday it was announced that all 30 MLB teams would be contributing at least $1 million each to a fund in support of out-of-work gameday staff. The fund would ensure that park employees who will be missing out on planned paid work hours because of the baseball suspension will still get paid.

CEO Christopher Ilitch said in a statement on Wednesday, “We are pleased that all of...

Tigers' Joey Wentz undergoes Tommy John surgery

Tigers lefty Joey Wentz has undergone Tommy John surgery, according to a team announcement. He’s expected to be sidelined for 14 to 16 months, the team provides. Wentz was the 40th overall pick of the 2016 draft. He came to the Detroit organization last summer, along with outfielder Travis Demeritte, in the deal that sent reliever Shane Greene to the Braves. This decision didn’t exactly come out of nowhere, as Wentz had dealt with forearm issues this spring. But the 22-year-old had gone...
