TweetCap: Game 3 | Tigers 10 – Yankees 7

Brennan Boesch was perfect at the plate: 4 for 4, 4 runs, 4 RBI, and Max Scherzer was just this side of awful: 9 hits and 6 ER in 5 innings.

Tigers’ 2011 X Factor: Phil Coke

In Phil Coke’s three-year major-league career, he’s finished 31 games and he’s started just one — the Tigers’ final game of the 2010 season. That outing could best be described as abbreviated; he threw 1.2 innings, allowing five hits, a walk and two runs. What conclusions can we draw from this micro-sample size? Less than […]

2010: The Year in Lists

A year ago, we were still stinging from Game 163 and not certain how the Tigers would respond to a crushing end to the 2009 season.

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.

Tuesday Tananas: Fred Lynn, Ted Power and Don Draper

Is it just me or were there a lot of Aug. 31 trades made back in the day? Back in the late ’80s and early ’90s it seemed that Oakland was always adding a big name at the deadline — Willie McGee, Ruben Sierra, Harold Baines. Just asking. The last time the Tigers made any […]

No Hitters? No-Hitter!

It seems awfully unfair for a guy to throw a no-hitter against a team that evidently has no hitters, doesn’t it? In the spirit of full disclosure, I didn’t see any of Monday night’s bizarro-rama — Max Scherzer also had a no-hitter going into the sixth?! — because I was out at a family thing. […]
