Tigers Look to Porcello to Repeat What Bonderman Accomplished in ’06 ALDS Clincher

Five years ago this week, the Tigers sent a young, often frustrating righthander to the mound in the fourth game of the American League Division Series. With a win, no sure thing with the unpredictable starter, the Tigers would eliminate the Yankees and move on to the American League Championship Series against the Oakland A’s. Twenty-three-year-old Jeremy Bonderman was the Tigers’ starter […]

The Friday Breakfast: Adios to the Twins

There’s no shortage of joy when the Tigers face the Twins for the final time during a season. Yes, 2009 included – outcome notwithstanding. And just think, a week from now we can say the same about the White Sox. The Friday Rundown The Tigers are in first place, 8.5 games ahead of the White […]

Sunday Snacks: April in the D Edition

A few overdue thoughts as I work the previous-channel button on my remote, switching between the Tigers and Wings games. When a few specific things occur, I know for certain the baseball season is in full bloom — eight games in or not. Two of these things have already taken place in the past 24 […]

Sunday Snacks: RIP Woodie Fryman, A Fantasy Camper Says Goodbye and More!

When I was just starting to collect baseball cards, the first thing I always did upon opening a new pack was to flip the card over to see if the player ever was a member of the Tigers. Because my memory latches on to such random things, I clearly remember when I turned over the […]

Three-ish for Thursday: Festivus, Feller and My New Job

Here we are one week before Festivus and the Tigers have given fans mere stocking stuffers compared to the gifts White Sox, Nationals, Red Sox and, most recently, Phillies fans received. Then again, only in this offseason could a guy of Victor Martinez’s caliber be considered value-bin material. Now that the big names are off […]

Tuesday Tananas: A-Jax, Bondo and Joe Isuzu

I just couldn’t see the Tigers making a move for Dan Uggla and hoped, quite frankly, that they wouldn’t. The added power behind Miguel Cabrera certainly would’ve been nice but not in the form of another righthanded bat. I’m willing to wait and see what Dave Dombrowski has up his sleeve. Until then, here are […]

News Galore on the Way Out the Door

It’s not often Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski gets loose and talks at length about the club’s plans, but on Sunday in Baltimore he did just that, breaking some news and confirming a few long-anticipated decisions: Brandon Inge gets offered an extension. As Ian wrote this summer, Inge is either loved or loathed in Detroit — […]

Season Series Recap: Tigers vs. White Sox

This is the first in a series of Season Recaps in which we’ll look at how the Tigers fared against division opponents in 2010. Since the 2000 season, the Tigers are 40 games under .500 against the White Sox. That’s beyond ugly. That’s hideous. Since Ozzie Guillen arrived in 2004, the Tigers are 19 games […]
