Should Miguel Cabrera take some time off?

Does Miguel Cabrera need to take some time off to rest? I'm not sold on that idea, but I don't want to see him step foot near first base again. It's no secret that Miguel Cabrera was not playing at 100 percent of his normal ability through the stretch run last year. Hobbled by nagging injuries, Cabrera limped into the playoffs as arguably less than half of his normal self. From Aug. 27 until Sept. 28 — his last 25 games of the season — Cabrera hit .284/.396/.333 with only one home run and two extra-base hits. Even with his defense limited, he was the designated hitter in only one of...

Tigers 12, Indians 1: Miguel Cabrera homers twice, backing David Price's solid start

David Price settled in to have a strong outing and was given all the run support he needed. The Tigers offense went to town against the wiped-out Indians, clobbering them for 20 hits and five home runs. The Tigers moved back into a tie for first place with the Royals in the AL Central with a rousing 12-1 win over the Indians. A strong start from David Price was supported by five home runs, with Miguel Cabrera blasting two after a month-long home run drought. Price battled the Indians in the beginning, giving up the lone run in the first, but he settled in to have a solid outing and shut...

No, we're not going to show you Justin Verlander's ass

But we are telling you jokes. So, Kate Upton's phone was hacked. Probably. I haven't gone looking for a story about it, frankly. The end result, however, I know: This evening there are photos of the pair posting in front of a mirror in all their glory making their rounds on the Internet. No, we're not going to show you the photos. Not going to tell you have to find them, either. But they definitely exist. This is a thing that happened that you're going to hear about anyway. So it may as well be from us. After all, we are a site that enjoys a good joke, and fortunately Twitter has provided...

Steven Moya, James McCann among Tigers' September callups

Detroit announced the seven players it will add to its active roster on Sept. 1. Great news! You'll finally get to see Steven Moya and James McCann wearing the Tigers' uniform. The pair were among a larger-than-normal contingent of minor leaguers who'll be called up by Detroit for the September roster expansion. OF Tyler Collins, IF Hernan Perez, LHP Kyle Lobstein, LHP Kyle Ryan, and LHP Robbie Ray will also be wearing the Old English D. Moya, a 22-year-old listed at 6'7 and 220 pounds but seemingly bigger in person, may be the most interesting name of the bunch, though finding playing time...

White Sox 6, Tigers 2: Woeful defense leads to series split

White Sox 6, Tigers 2: Woeful defense leads to series split

The Tigers combined brutal defense with a lack of offense and fundamentals into a toxic, losing mix, the White Sox rolling to a far too easy 6-2 victory. Rick Porcello deserved far better. Four Detroit Tigers errors and countless mental mistakes led to three unearned runs. Combine that with a just six hits on offense and you get the Tigers gift wrapping a victory for the Chicago White Sox. The Pale Hose happily obliged, their 6-2 win salvaging a series split. In the race for the AL Central lead, the Tigers fall 1/2 game back of the Kansas City Royals, who take on the Cleveland Indians...

Tigers fans: stopping and smelling the roses wouldn't be a bad idea now and again

It's funny how much amnesia sets in among the Tigers fan base, which is old enough to remember the dark days of the not-too-distant past. For the baseball fan, nothing is crueler than the month of September when your team is hopelessly out of the race. The game takes on a different, lifeless quality in a meaningless September. The leaves are turning, with their pretty colors nonetheless serving as an ominous warning that another tough winter is behind them. The games are played because the MLB schedule mandates it, but there is no drama. There isn't a palpable buzz around the ballpark. Even...

Tigers 8, White Sox 4: Kyle Ryan shines in debut

The Tigers bullpen nearly squandered a stellar performance from first-time starter Kyle Ryan, but a late burst of offense finally put away the White Sox for good. The Detroit Tigers out-dueled the Chicago White Sox in a battle of rookie first-timers to win the back end of Saturday's doubleheader, 8-4. Kyle Ryan (1-0) earned the win for the Tigers, tossing six shutout innings in his major league debut. The win brings the Tigers to 74-61 on the season, just half a game behind the Kansas City Royals at the top of the AL Central. Chris Bassitt (0-1) made the spot start for the White Sox,...
