Tigers' Scherzer = Sports Illustrated cover boy

The crux of writer Albert Chen's story, which doesn't seem to be online yet (and if it is, please send us the link), is how Scherzer turned down $144 million guaranteed from the Tigers last month, in hopes of getting an even bigger contract in free agency this fall. 'Max Scherzer is a really smart guy,'...

Coke'd: the fans on Twitter have spoken (sort of)

Phil Coke has fallen out of almost everyone's good graces, it seems, as this Twitter search revealed. (I hope I did the search right.) Phil Coke blew hard last night. After striking out the first two batters he faced, he started giving up hits, then he started giving up runs, then he - the team LOOGY, mind you - gave up a home run to left-handed hitting Adam Dunn. I think everyone is frustrated at this point, and to confirm that fact, I went out to Twitter and just a quick search for "Coke." The results were definitely ... results. Dissarano and coke, pizza and the champions league....

Tigers build big lead, bullpen barely holds it

No offense to Charlie Leesman, probably a pleasant chap, but he's no Chris Sale. And no offense to the Miguel Cabrera of the first 16 games, but he's not the hitter who'll probably show up for the next 145 —which is how many games the Tigers have remaining after an 8-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.

Detroit Tigers notebook: Austin Jackson not in lineup for 1st time in 2014: 'He'll be back in there tomorrow'

With Jackson on the bench for at least the start of the game, that leaves just two Tigers players who have started every game this season: Miguel Cabrera and Ian Kinsler. DETROIT -- Brad Ausmus said every player needs a day off now and then. Even Austin Jackson. Jackson played every inning of each of the first 16 games this season, but he was not in the starting lineup Ausmus posted for the game Tuesday night between the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox. "He's played every game," Ausmus said. "We'll give him a day and then he'll be back in there...

Ask Schmehl: What's wrong with Alex Avila? How bad does the Doug Fister trade look now?

Theres no need to mince words: Trading Steve Lombardozzi for Alex Gonzalez was a terrible, terrible trade and it essentially makes the Doug Fister trade look that much worse. DETROIT -- Baseball is a crazy game. Completely unpredictable. Less than a month ago, Danny Worth was told he'd open the season in Triple-A Toledo after the Tigers made a head-scratching trade for infielder Alex Gonzalez. Once again, Worth found himself on the outside looking in, despite a torrid spring that probably should've earned him a spot on the opening day roster. At the...
