Flashback: Toronto vs. Detroit, October 4, 1987

Flashback: Toronto vs. Detroit, October 4, 1987

Getty Archives A regular-season-ender with a much happier ending than 2009’s. As you may have read a little while ago, I did a recap on the (in)famous Game 163 from the 2009 season, with the Twins besting the Tigers in 12 innings to capture the American League Central title. The reaction to it, on various media platforms, was, shall we say, mixed. I’d say it was a pretty even split between “That game was amazing, even though the Tigers lost” and “Why on Earth did you put me through that torture again?!”. Mission accomplished, baby. I thought for a bit of a...

Detroit Tigers are in dire need of left-handed pitching out of the bullpen

While the Detroit Tigers cannot make any changes to their big league roster right now due to the work stoppage, something has to give when things get back to normal. As it stands now, the Tigers will be in dire need of left-handed relievers who can get the job done. The Detroit Tigers have a […] Detroit Tigers are in dire need of left-handed pitching out of the bullpen - Detroit Jock City - Detroit Jock City - A Detroit Sports blog

Detroit Tigers history: The 1906 Tigers

Photo by Transcendental Graphics/ Things took a bit of a downward turn for the Tigers in 1906, and while they weren’t the worst team in the American League, they struggled with injury as well as plenty of internal strife thanks to manager Bill Armour. While the club ended the season with a sub-.500 record. Never fear, though, things were going to take a turn the next season. 1906 History This was a big year for some serious disasters. In January an 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Ecuador and Colombia killed over 500; in Italy in April, Mount Vesuvius erupted completely...

Detroit Tigers still kicking the tires on outfielder Victor Reyes

The Detroit Tigers selected Victor Reyes in the 2017 Rule 5 MLB Draft from the Arizona Diamondbacks organization, and since then, they have hoped for him to break out. His time with the Tigers has been far from an exciting addition. At times it looked like the Detroit Tigers might have found a diamond in […] Detroit Tigers still kicking the tires on outfielder Victor Reyes - Detroit Jock City - Detroit Jock City - A Detroit Sports blog

The expectations have settled for Daz Cameron

Photo by Duane Burleson/ Detroit is still hoping to get any sort of production from the infamous Houston trio. It is not entirely fair to place the burden of trades gone wrong on acquired prospects, but it is impossible for Detroit Tigers fans to hear the names Daz Cameron, Jake Rogers, and Franklin Pérez and not shake their heads in disappointment. Trading Justin Verlander became an inevitability back in 2017, but to have none of the returning pieces looking anything close to even a regular starter makes it that much harder to accept. We’ll continue our series on...

Detroit Tigers history: The 1905 Tigers

Photo by Chicago Sun-Times/Chicago Daily News collection/Chicago History Museum/ Something truly franchise-altering happened to the Tigers this season. 1905 saw things begin to turn around for the Tigers. They had a new future superstar in their midst (though they couldn’t have possibly known it at the time, since he only came to the club in late August), and the club managed to post a winning record at long last under new manager Bill Armour (who would later go on to become president of the Toledo Mud Hens in 1911). Armour would only coach in Detroit for two...
