Tigers Mailbag: Doug Fister trade looking worse and worse

The Tigers have the fans all riled up again, thanks to another mini-downslide, an offense that's been snoozing since the All-Star break and a bullpen that continues to look absolutely awful, even with the addition of Joakim Soria.

Nats Journal: Doug Fister and Jose Lobaton form a formidable battery

Doug Fister has been excellent for the Nationals all season but the results stand out when Jose Lobaton is behind the plate.

Nats Journal: Nationals-Reds discussion thread: Game 102

UPDATE, 12:49 p.m.: The Reds announced that the game will not start on time. The tarp is still on the field and the rain comes and goes. We expect to be here a while. Doug Fister (9-2, 2.92 ERA) makes his second start of the second half, this time on six days rest and not 12 like his previous start. Fister has never pitched at Great American Ball Park. He has faced the Reds before and allowed only two runs over seven innings. Fister is 6-0 with a 2.09 ERA with Jose Lobaton behind the plate. He will be opposed by Mat Latos (2-2, 3.15 ERA). The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game...

Midterm report card: Tigers bullpen is their biggest weakness

Midterm report card: Tigers bullpen is their biggest weakness

The Tigers bullpen has been their biggest weakness all season. The Tigers bullpen was blamed for letting a championship slip away in 2013. That came on the heels of a season where they went into the playoffs without a closer. Then, they lost their three most trusted relievers from that group. Joaquin Benoit left as a free agent. Drew Smyly was moved to the rotation to take the place of Doug Fister, who was traded. The club declined to pick up the option on Jose Veras, who worked in a set up role after being acquired at the trade deadline. The attempted fix was to sign Joe Nathan as the...

Doug Fister? Yes. Babe, Willie, Jackie, and Doug. Apparently the photo above was taken at the 4th of July parade in Doug Fister's hometown (Merced, California) by Fister's fiancée. Good company, indeed: Thank you to those at home! “@35_smash: @dougfister58...

Fister battles, emerges with 8th win

BALTIMORE — Early on a humid night at Camden Yards, it looked like Doug Fister might not have his best stuff. Staked to a 2-0 lead by his Nationals teammates, Fister took the mound for the bottom of the first and delivered a bumpy performance. Perhaps squeezed by a tight strike zone, the right-hander walked…

Nats Journal: Anthony Rendon’s defense shines

Pick an inning from Wednesday’s win and Anthony Rendon likely had something to do with it, and probably with his glove. In the fifth inning, he stopped Steve Pearce’s bullet groundball, collected himself and the ball, and fired a rocket across the diamond for an out. After the Nationals threw the ball around in the infield, Rendon flashed a broad grin as he flipped the ball back to starter Doug Fister. Read full article >>
