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 […]

Monday Mankowskis: Playoff Odds, Rayburn’s D, Stephen Drew’s Luck

The horror of the weekend sweep in Cleveland hasn’t completely washed away here at Daily Fungo HQ. Saturday night’s game was so disappointing that yesterday’s seemed more like a scrimmage … A scrimmage that counts. But a new week is here and the Tigers are at home, where they excel. Instead of focusing on this […]

The Brandon Inge Conundrum

Note: I started writing this piece and realized that Tom Gage wrote about 900 words on the same topic. While it might not be the freshest take, I’m posting it anyway for your consideration. For the life of me, I can’t remember a Tigers player that enraged me the way Brandon Inge does these days. […]

Game 21: Twins 2 – Tigers 0

ESPN highlights available here. The Score: Twins 2 – Tigers 0 The Gist: Justin Verlander was the tough-luck loser on a night when Ryan Raburn‘s lead-gloved defense cost the Tigers dearly. And on a night when Francisco Liriano showed that he might be back in pre-arm-injury form, the Tigers got fewer hits (5) than the […]

Game 18: Tigers 8 – Rangers 4

ESPN highlights available here. The Score: Tigers 8 – Rangers 4 The Gist: For the first time in nearly nine years, Brad Thomas took the hill as a starter and did enough to keep the Tigers in the game until the offense took over in a kooky fourth inning. With two outs that inning, Ryan […]

Of Course: Guillen to the DL

The cynical view, of course, is that we all knew Carlos Guillen would make at least one appearance on the disabled list this season. But come on, who had him on the shelf in the third week of the season? Certainly not Jim Leyland. But that’s the sitch as the Tigers’s number-five hitter lands on […]
