Detroit Tiger Links says sell everyone

It was a good run. Welp. Season's over. Sure we actually witnessed a "good" Mike Pelfrey start. And, yeah the Tigers are a game over .500. Doesn't matter, time to fire sale everyone. It seems like the popular sentiment is that unless the team is dominating, the team should sell instead. And after a second straight season of mediocre play, patience for many has run out. But if the fan base wants to sell, it better consider what that actually means. And that would mean departing with the players who are actually assets. So let's start with Justin Verlander and  Miguel Cabrera. If...

Matt Carpenter was left off the Sporting News top fifty players list, but that means more of him for us - A Hunt and Peck

Sporting News conducted a ranking of the top 50 players in baseball and... Wait, where is Matt Carpenter? This is what many were saying as they glanced over the Sporting News top 50 Major League Baseball players. I imagine these people glanced over the list once, twice, maybe three times more to ensure they had not just missed his name. Still, he was no where to be found. I, too, was startled over his omission. Since becoming a starter in 2013, Carpenter has been one of the best players in baseball, the sixth best by fWAR among qualified hitters, in fact, just above Miguel Cabrera, who was...

Tigers lineup: Jarrod Saltalamacchia playing 1B, Miguel Cabrera the DH

The Tigers seek a four-game sweep of the Mariners in a Thursday afternoon matinee. DETROIT -- Here's a twist. Looking to give Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez some rest, Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has Jarrod Saltalamacchia playing first base in the series finale Thursday agains the Seattle Mariners (1:10 p.m., FSD). It's the second time this season Saltalamacchia, the Tigers' primary backup catcher, will play first. He played two innings at first base on April 23, and four games there last season with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The start marks...

Watch Miguel Cabrera's home run leave Comerica Park

Watch Miguel Cabrera's home run leave Comerica Park

Cabreras home run bounced once behind the Al Kaline statue before leaving the stadium. DETROIT - Miguel Cabrera didn't just hit the ball over the fence in the first inning for his 15th home run of the season. He hit it out of Comerica Park. OK, it took one bounce before leaving the stadium but it was still a monster home run nonetheless. The Detroit Tigers slugger belted a pitch from Nathan Karns over the brick wall in center field near the statue of Al Kaline. It took one bounce on the concourse and landed on E. Adams Ave., where fans went chasing after it. The...

Watch Miguel Cabrera hit a home run onto Adams Street

Statcast says Miguel Cabrera hit the ball 454 feet Monday at Comerica Park. That sounds pretty far. It would be the Tigers’ second-farthest home run of the year, even. BUT MIGUEL CABRERA ONE-BOUNCED THE FRICKEN BALL ONTO ADAMS STREET. This, for reference, is what a 467-foot home run at Comerica Park looks like. There’s no way Miguel Cabrera’s home run only went 454 feet. None. Nobody believes it. Not fans, not reporters. Nobody. ESPN Stats & Info later clarified that the ball was hit 461 feet. Still don’t believe it. Thanks to Detroit News reporter Tony Paul, we do have a quick...

Royals 16, Tigers 5: Pitching is hard

The Royals torch Boyd and the bullpen. It was Baseball Night in America and the Tigers got the nationally televised treatment, complete with two random old men saying nonsense to one another that was occasionally related to the game on the field. These two were to announcing what Delmon Young was to left field. Fortunately, the Tigers came out swinging and two singles from Ian Kinsler and Cameron Maybin put runners at the corners with no outs. A Miguel Cabrera fly out drove in the first run. Maybin advanced to third on an errant throw, and Castellanos reach base when "he" was struck by a...

Tigers 11, White Sox 8: Tigers score lots of runs, don’t blow it this time

That went a little better than last night. One night after scoring nine runs and losing in heartbreaking fashion, the Detroit Tigers nearly did the same on Tuesday. The Tigers jumped out to a 10-2 lead on the Chicago White Sox, but only gave some of it back this time before capping off a ___ victory. While this game didn’t get off to quite as fast a start as Monday’s — Ian Kinsler grounded out to open Tuesday’s proceedings — the Tigers scored a run in the top of the first when Miguel Cabrera singled home Jose Iglesias. Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann coughed up the lead by...

Miguel Cabrera wants a kiss from a White Sox player

Jose Abreu wanted to catch a foul ball off the bat of Ian Kinsler. Miguel Cabrera wanted to catch Jose Abreu into his web of love. Unfortunately for Miggy, the feelings were left unrequited. Man, that’s just cold, Abreu. Priceless, Miggy. You’d have to be heartless to deny love like that. Credit: Fox Sports Detroit

White Sox 10, Tigers 9 (F/12): The Tigers made me sad

The Tigers decided to spend several hours torturing Tigers fans everywhere by bleeding away a 7-0 lead through the efforts of the bullpen. The Chicago White Sox furiously rallied all game long and finally tied it in the ninth to send the game to extras, where Anibal Sanchez ceded the winning run after several heroic innings of work. The Tigers pounded James Shields early, paced by a lead-off dinger from Ian Kinsler. Miguel Cabrera and J.D. Martinez also did heavy damage in the early innings as the Tigers made Shields wish he was back in the friendly confines of the NL West. Matt Boyd...

Tigers expect Miguel Cabrera to play Saturday, when Shane Greene will be activated

Cabrera left Fridays win over the White Sox in the seventh inning after his back tightened up.
