Tigers Den Roundtable: What are the positives from the Tigers’ 2017 season?

Tigers Den Roundtable: What are the positives from the Tigers’ 2017 season?

The 2017 season hasn’t been great, but there are a few silver linings to be found. Watching the 2017 Detroit Tigers has been an exercise in futility. On paper, they have enough talent to match up with nearly any team in the American League. If their veterans could remain healthy and productive, it’s not unreasonable to think that they could have challenged for a playoff spot — if not the still-up-for-grabs AL Central crown. Unfortunately, those veterans have been neither healthy nor productive. Victor Martinez’s OPS is under .700 now, while Miguel Cabrera is not much better at .751....

Justin Verlander gives up 3 home runs as Tigers lose to Rangers

Victor Martinez led off the ninth with his ninth homer. ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Joey Gallo and Mike Napoli hit back-to-back homers and the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 10-4 on Tuesday night to end Justin Verlander's three-game winning streak. The Rangers had just gone ahead 2-1 on Nomar Mazara's RBI single in the fourth inning when Gallo hit his 34th homer, a towering drive that landed in the second deck of seats in right-center above the Texas bullpen and was estimated at 459 feet. Napoli followed with a 416-foot shot to left for his 24th homer, and...

Tigers 2, Yankees 0: A tale of two rain delays

Tigers 2, Yankees 0: A tale of two rain delays

Plus, Victor Martinez collected his 400th double. Patience is a virtue. Fortunately, the Tigers are a pretty virtuous bunch, and held on to win a rain-delayed rubber match 2-0, taking the series from the Yankees in the Bronx. The first rain delay of the daypushed back the start of the game by about 90 minutes; eventually, the Tigers and Yankees headed into the final game of their three-game series. Many wondered if the Tigers had it in them to compete after trading off some key pieces, but the team has looked sharp since the trade deadline on Monday. Jordan Zimmermann faced off against...
