If the San Antonio Spurs played baseball, they would win most games 5-2. Ricky P was phenomenal, again, scattering 9 hits over […]

Miguel Cabrera's ankle pain not ideal but manageable

Miguel Cabrera's ankle is painful to run on and it's impacting his ability to drive the ball, but there isn't much to do about it right now. DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera is dealing with some pain.

Tigers trade rumors: Deal for Astros closer Chad Qualls appears dead

A trade for Astros' closer Chad Qualls looks to be off the table with the passing of the 48 hour trade deadline.
