Seated at a table were Andrew Romine and Joakim Soria, deeply engrossed in a game of chess played on a glass base, with frosted pieces. Miguel Cabrera was busy shouting "We've got to win!" at everyone. Ian Kinsler and Rajai Davis, among others, echoed Cabrera's sentiment. And in the back corner, near the lockers of Anibal Sanchez and Soria, was Joba Chamberlain, freshly designated for assignment after a year and a half with the team. It's not easy to get the news that a team...

Tigers' Alfredo Simon, Joba Chamberlain accomplish dubious feats in loss to Pirates

Simon has an ERA of 6.09 in his last six starts while Chamberlain has given up eight earned runs in his last four innings of work. Unfortunately, both pitchers combined to do something on Wednesday that not too many other...

Detroit Tigers Links: Joba Chamberlain understands your pain

Alfredo Simon and Joba Chamberlain get clobbered, the Royals get swept, and one team turns its back on advanced analytics, while another finds ever better ways to bridge the player/nerd divide. Joba Chamberlain certainly isn't going to give up on himself after last night's three home-run inning, but he understands if the fans do. "I'd boo myself too," said Chamberlain after the debacle. Ah Joba, you're so easy to like. If only the ball was going where you aimed it. Good stuff, in the wrong place, at the wrong time ... well, it looks an awful lot like bad stuff. Not too sure of his barber's...

Game 2015.57: Tigers at White Sox

I was thrilled last night when Ausmus came out to get Joba “8th Inning” Chamberlain to go situational for the next batter, and then Soria for a 4 pitch out. If you’re gonna lose, it’s okay to lose that way. Ausmus was managing. Soria subsequently gave up a 2 out HR, and then a combo […]
