Game 2014.105: White Sox at Tigers

Baseball Reference Game Preview John Danks vs. Drew Smyly Another hilariously unlikely game last night, one that fell our way this time. What novelty will today bring? The first 5 innings worth of Drew Smyly’s last outing against, oh, who even remembers, because they were invisible, was far and away the most stunningly dominant performance […]

Location cause of Joakim Soria's early struggles with Tigers

The newest Tigers' first two outings have not gone so well, especially the one last night against the White Sox. Let's break down the appearance pitch-by-pitch and see what happened. Many Tigers fans and pundits have complained about the recent acquisition of Joakim Soria, claiming the price paid was too high for a year-and-a-half of a relief pitcher, no matter how effective. Soria has only made two appearances since joining the team, and neither did much to stifle those complaints. Last night, Soria entered the game in a tight situation. With some help from the defense, Anibal Sanchez...

MLB trade rumors: Red Sox 'likely' to deal left-handed pitchers Jon Lester, Andrew Bailey

MLB trade rumors: Red Sox 'likely' to deal left-handed pitchers Jon Lester, Andrew Bailey

Would the Tigers be able to trade for either one? It seems like just about any Red Sox player not named David Ortiz has been linked to a trade rumor or three this season, but two of the most popular names of late are Jon Lester and Andrew Miller. SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that both Lester and Miller have drawn plenty of interest in the past couple weeks, and Chris knows everyone so you should believe him. Would the Tigers be able to land either lefty? WHY THIS MAKES SENSE Regardless of whom ends up in Detroit, the Tigers would be adding an excellent left-handed pitcher to their...

White Sox 11, Tigers 4: Anibal Sanchez betrayed by defense and bullpen, Joakim Soria rocked in home debut

Joakim Soria's home debut could not have gone worse. The White Sox pummeled the newest Tiger for four runs and six hits in just 1/3 of an inning, including three extra base hits. Down 2-0, Chicago scored 11 unanswered runs to win going away, 11-4. Sloppy defense and a horrific home debut from Joakim Soria cost the Detroit Tigers dearly, the Chicago White Sox breaking open a 2-2 game with seven runs in the seventh inning, cruising to an 11-4 victory. The loss was the fourth straight for the Tigers, who apparently are not familiar with the term "Home sweet home.". The loss drops Detroit to...

Suarez leaves game early due to lower back stiffness, Castellanos day-to-day

Two injuries left the Tigers bench short of available position players Tuesday night. Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez was removed from the game in the fourth inning Tuesday evening due to experiencing lower back tightness. He is listed as day-to-day and Andrew Romine was inserted in the lineup in his place. Suarez made an impressive play in the first inning that just barely got Alexei Ramirez at first base for the second out. But Suarez went on to have a rough night defensively when two misplays and an error in the third had the rookie shortstop looking out of his element. After Suarez...

Joe Nathan feeling stress? Check his NEBIS-level

Is their poker-tell to Joe Nathan when it comes to the stress he's feeling on the mound? Is the equine exhale the first clue? The air of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears -- Arabian Proverb We all have our quirks. Things we do when we're happy, excited, nervous, or downright scared. These can manifest themselves in any number of ways and have different levels of control we can place upon them. Some folks fidget with their fingers. Others get wide-eyed or perhaps talk at a rapid pace. Golfers have crazy little motions and ticks as they get ready to strike a shot. Then there...
MLB trade rumors: Indians 'very willing' to trade Justin Masterson, but would they deal with Detroit?

MLB trade rumors: Indians 'very willing' to trade Justin Masterson, but would they deal with Detroit?

The Indians are looking to trade the soon-to-be free agent. Does he make sense for the Tigers? Last season, Justin Masterson made his first All-Star team and won a career-best 14 games as the Indians went 92–70 and made their first playoff appearance since 2007. This season? The Tribe are still in contention, but Masterson has not helped one bit. Now, the Indians may be looking to move the pending free agent right-hander at the trade deadline. Sources: Indians very willing to move Justin Masterson. FA to be due back Friday from DL. Looking for young, controllable starting pitching. —...
Rob and Jon talk about whether the Tigers should trade Ian Kinsler

Rob and Jon talk about whether the Tigers should trade Ian Kinsler

Would trading Ian Kinsler be a good long-term move for the Tigers? Rob and Jon go back and forth about the latest pet project of Lynn Henning from the Detroit News. Before we get into the brilliant insight below (and Rob's comments), a little context. Over the past couple weeks, Lynn Henning of the Detroit News has started beating an interesting drum. Tigers can (must) also trade Kinsler at some point in 2014. Devon Travis likely ready for 2B work in Detroit by some stage of 2015. — Lynn G. Henning (@Lynn_Henning) June 18, 2014 Henning has followed this initial comment with a bit...

Will the Tigers look to trade Jose Iglesias this offseason?

Will the Tigers look to trade Jose Iglesias this offseason?

Does the emergence of Eugenio Suarez make Jose Iglesias expendable? On Sunday, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe addressed the impending July 31 trade deadline in his weekly notes column. He mentions that Jimmy Rollins, a name oft-associated with teams in need of a shortstop, is likely to stay in Philadelphia for the remainder of the season. Specifically, he indicates that the Detroit Tigers are sticking with Eugenio Suarez for the time being. That's not shocking in the least, as Jimmy Rollins and his 35-year old glove are not a great fit for the left side of the Tigers' infield. What I...

Five players that the Tigers should pursue at the trade deadline

Major league baseball's non waiver trade deadline is this Thursday. Here are five players that the Tigers should be inquiring about. The Tigers have filled their greatest need by acquiring Joakim Soria, a solid late inning relief pitcher and potential closer, but there are still some areas on the team that could be upgraded in a significant way before the July 31st non waiver trade deadline. Here are five players who would give the roster a boost. 1. Andrew Miller, LHP, Boston Red Sox Any doubts about whether the Red Sox were going to be sellers at the trade deadline were erased when...

Brad Ausmus and Kevin Rand admit surgery the 'root cause' for Miguel Cabrera's struggles

A 3-for-17 weekend for Miguel Cabrera had manager Brad Ausmus and trainer Kevin Rand discussing their slugger's struggles after Sunday's loss. They both pointed toward Cabrera's 2013 injury and resulting surgery as the reason for his down season. Going by the standards of the majority of major league players, Miguel Cabrera is having a very good 2014 season. Good enough to make the All-Star Game and be one of the best offensive players for Detroit Tigers. After disappointing weekend against the Los Angeles Angels (3-for-17 in the four game series, 0-for-8 over the final two games, one RBI,...
