Come to Detroit, Kid

Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers front-runners to add Cuban OF Rusney Castillo.

Trust me. Boston is a flash in the pan every other year – Detroit will contend now and forever.

St. Petersburg, Fla. — The Tigers’ top two front-office generals, Dave Dombrowski and Al Avila, both were with the team this week as Detroit continued its chase for Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo.

The Tigers were maintaining secrecy, but it is known they are heavily pursuing Castillo, 27, a right-handed hitter with speed and power, and with skills that could make him the team’s center-field replacement a month after Austin Jackson was traded to Seattle.

Martinez had lifted a two-run shot out [...]
  • Almost Unbearable Brad Ausmus and I do not think alike. Unless it’s just the way Big Cat and our hitters approach the game – not working the count, swinging at the first fastball they see. Personally, I do not enjoy watching the 2016 Detroit Tiger offensive style. And it’s only May. Unless Ausmus is dismissed for Kirk [...]
  • Change the Batting Order You could claim the Tigers’ resurgence of late is due to Brad’s infamous ejection on Monday, but maybe it has had more to do with the return of originally drafted by Detroit Cameron Maybin?
