Detroit Tigers News: It’s time to sell

Detroit Tigers News: It’s time to sell

It’s over, everyone. Welp I thought this was going to be a partially original thought but Cam beat me to it earlier this week. Regardless, the breaking point has been reached with this Detroit Tigers team. When you can’t even win a good start from Anibal Sanchez, it’s time to pack it in. The hard truth is this is not a championship team. It has neither the starting pitching nor the bullpen to win consistently. I think it is better than its record shows, but making the playoffs is a long shot and winning once they are there is an impossibility. I am an eternal optimist and was firmly...

Detroit Tigers news: The tank is real

After another mediocre performance Monday the Tigers are on the brink it was a rough night Monday, after a surprising effort by Anibal Sanchez, the Tigers were simply beat by the long ball in the first game of their four game series. They lost to the Seattle Mariners six to two. After an unpleasant night last night, the Tigers look to rebound as Jordan Zimmermann will take the mound for the Tigers opposing Ariel Miranda tonight at 10:10 p.m. ET. You can read more from the Mariners’ perspective in the Behind Enemy Lines Q & A. Cameron tells us why it’s time for the Tigers to start...

Mariner Bats Roar at Tigers in Italian, Scare Them

Gaviglio, Zunino, and Guillermo secure the win. We expected home runs tonight. The Tigers called up Anibal Sanchez from AAA to start tonight’s game. No one was quite sure why he was here because it didn’t appear as though he had worked out his problems in the minors after losing his starting job in Spring Training. In 21 innings in the Major Leagues this season, he had given up 9 home runs. Yet, until the 5th inning it looked like an okay move for the Tigers. Despite loading the bases in the 2nd with 2 walks and a hit by pitch (he would escape without yielding a run), he kept the...

Mariners 6, Tigers 2: A plague of dingers

Locusts, home runs, you name it, Detroit suffered from it in Seattle For the better part of five innings, Anibal Sanchez put doubters to shame on Monday night in Seattle. Called back up to the big league roster after a stint in Toledo, Sanchez brought with him the normal round of gnashing of teeth that comes with his every appearance. And like we’ve come to expect, what the starting pitcher did meant little to the outcome, for the bullpen blew it yet again. The Tigers lost by insert score here. Look, it really doesn’t matter, does it? Sanchez went five innings. He was hit by a...

Anibal Sanchez goes 5, but Tigers squander chances to score in loss to Mariners

Anibal Sanchez goes 5, but Tigers squander chances to score in loss to Mariners

Tigers relievers gave up two home runs in the late innings as the Seattle Mariners won the series opener 6-2 Monday night. SEATTLE -- Anibal Sanchez lasted five innings in his first start of the season, but the game was decided after he departed. The Detroit Tigers squandered scoring opportunities and Tigers relievers gave up two home runs in the late innings as the Seattle Mariners won the series opener 6-2 Monday night at Safeco Field. Both starting pitchers -- Sanchez for the Tigers and rookie Sam Gaviglio for the M's -- walked a tightrope, narrowly avoiding...

Detroit Tigers News: Anibal Sanchez returns to the starting rotation

Detroit Tigers News: Anibal Sanchez returns to the starting rotation

We’re hoping for the best with Sanchez on the mound, but not expecting much. As the sun rises on another Monday morning, a middling Detroit Tigers team finds itself four games under the .500 mark and kicking, halfheartedly, at the hand of the Chicago White Sox, which is placed firmly on their ankle trying to drag them down into the cellar of the American League Central Division. On Monday, the Tigers are on the road facing the Seattle Mariners to begin the back half of a stretch of games on 13 consecutive days. Anibal Sanchez gets the start for reasons that are unbeknownst to me but must...

Anibal Sanchez to start for Tigers on Monday for some reason

There is no statistical reason for Sanchez to be back in the majors, but he will be starting against Seattle anyway. Well, this is a head-scratcher: Anibal Sanchez will return to the major leagues and start for the Detroit Tigers on Monday against the Seattle Mariners. Sanchez, who has been with the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens since May 22, will return as part of a short-term six-man rotation. The team has yet to confirm the news, but a roster move will likely be announced after Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. From a statistical perspective, the news is certainly puzzling. Sanchez...

Anibal Sanchez to start for Tigers Monday in Seattle

Sanchez pitched four games for Triple A Toledo to try and show the Tigers he can start for them. DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers saw what they needed to from Anibal Sanchez during four starts with Triple A Toledo. Now it's time to see what he can do at the Major League level. Before accepting a demotion to Toledo last month, Sanchez struggled during 11 appearances - all in relief - with the Tigers. He had a 9.00 ERA, 2.048 WHIP, 0-0 record, allowed nine home runs and struck out 22 in 21 innings. He went to Toledo to try and prove he could start again for the Tigers...

Its June 7, and neither Matthew Boyd, Anibal Sanchez or Mike Pelfrey are in the Detroit Tigers rotation. None of the three, in fact, are even on the team. DETROIT -- The battle for the No. 5 spot in the rotation that consumed much of spring has taken a somewhat unexpected turn. It's June 7, and neither Matthew Boyd, Anibal Sanchez or Mike Pelfrey are in the Detroit Tigers rotation. None of the three, in fact, are even on the team. Buck Farmer, who will be recalled to start Wednesday night, is the Tigers' new No. 5 man. If his performance is anything like his...
