Joakim Soria trade a massive overpay for Tigers

The Tigers didn't pay up for relief help last offseason and are paying for it now. The Tigers needed bullpen help in a big way, and they just landed one of the better relievers on the market in Joakim Soria. The former Ranger put up excellent numbers as a member of the Kansas City Royals from 2007 to 2011, and has 17 saves and a 2.70 ERA as the Rangers' closer in 2014. However, they paid through the nose to get him. In one of the most blatant "win now" moves of Dave Dombrowski's tenure, the Tigers parted with two of the top prospects in their system for Soria, who has a $7 million team option...

Tigers 11, Diamondbacks 5: Detroit staves off Arizona comeback, pulls away late with four eighth inning runs.

What had been a blowout became tense in the late innings, the Tigers giving back five runs after taking a 7-0 advantage. But four two out runs in the eighth inning, three coming on a Miguel Cabrera home run, gave Detroit needed breathing room. The Detroit Tigers took a 7-0 lead, nearly lost it, then pulled away by plating four eighth innings runs after two were out, taking the rubber game of their series with the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-5. The getaway day victory in Arizona extends Detroit's lead in the AL Central to 6 1/2 games over the Cleveland Indians. Anibal Sanchez managed to hang...

Diamondbacks 5, Tigers 4: Late comeback spoiled, Detroit bullpen coughs up another lead

Rick Porcello and the Tigers were in position for a comeback win after scoring two runs in the top of the eighth inning. But Phil Coke and Ian Krol conspired to give the lead right back, the Diamondbacks taking a 5-4 victory. The Detroit Tigers' bullpen let an excellent outing from Rick Porcello go to waste by allowing two runs in the bottom of the eighth, the Arizona Diamondbacks taking a 5-4 come-from-behind victory. Detroit drops to 17-11 in one run games while their lead in the AL Central falls to 5 1/2 over the Kansas City Royals. Chase Anderson, the Diamondbacks' southpaw starter,...

Tigers continue long-term relationship with Lakeland, agree to 20-year Joker Marchant Stadium lease

The Tigers buck the trend of looking for greener spring training pastures in Arizona or coastal Florida by committing to train in Lakekand until 2036. The Detroit Tigers have been closely associated with the city of Lakeland, Florida for  78 years. The Tigers have spent every spring in Lakeland since1936, making for the longest ongoing spring training relationship between a team and city in MLB.

Tight pennant races, Street prices slowing trade movement

With just ten days until the trade deadline, few teams are willing to sell players, yet. Major league baseball’s trading season has begun, and surely there will be more activity before the month of July is over. More deals, and bigger deals may have already gone down, if it weren’t for the fact that so many teams remain within striking distance of at least a wild card playoff spot, and some of the most sought after players are playing for teams in the weak American league’s eastern division. Tampa Bay Rays’ pitcher, former Cy Young winner David Price has been the most talked about...

Tigers rumors: Tigers interested in Phillies left-hander Antonio Bastardo

They may also be interested in Jonathan Papelbon, much to our dismay. The quest for bullpen help continues.
