The subject of the conversation wasn’t complicated. “We just talked about winning,” center fielder Lorenzo Cain told FSKC. read more

Tigers seen as easy targets in AL Central

The Detroit Tigers have as large a cushion in the American League Central Division as any team in several years, going 17-6 leading into the All-Star break. But the teams trailing them don’t view that 6½-game lead as insurmountable. “Any team has a chance to do something special in the second half,” Kansas City outfielder Alex Gordon said during the All-Star Game that was played Tuesday at Target Field. And the Tigers are aware of that. They have led at the break in previous seasons and held that lead. They’ve also led at the break and blown the division. read more

Detroit Tigers feel good about themselves heading into break despite missed opportunity

The Tigers didnt make a statement with a sweep of the Royals. But they did win three of four. They built upon their division lead. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There are very few statement games in Major League Baseball. With 162 games on the schedule, it's difficult to say that one game can turn the tide of an entire season or even mean substantially more than the other 161. But a team can make a statement in a series like the one the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals just completed. In a four-game series, there is a potential for an eight-game swing in the...

Monty's advice to Royals All-Stars: 'Enjoy it to the limit that you want to enjoy it'

If ex-Royal Jeff Montgomery had one piece of advice to share with the Kansas City’s current All-Stars — Salvador Perez, Alex Gordon and Greg Holland — it would be simple. After all, the team’s all-time saves leader has been in three Midsummer Classics himself. “Enjoy it to the limit that you want to enjoy it,” said Montgomery, who was chosen as the Royals’ lone player selection in 1992, 1993 and 1996. “Don’t try to do everything that everybody wants you to do. Be a little selfish and do the stuff that you want to do.” read more
