Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

About Us

The Sporting Snarf is a website dedicated to the enjoyable, humorous, and nuanced aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon, in varying degrees of print/video length, engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

Dave Doubles Down

The Tigers GM was at it twice Thursday, trading shortstop Eugenio “Mr. Suave” Suarez along with a Whitecap for Cincinnati Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon. Suarez filled in nicely for our injured shortstop last season who will now be healthy, along with Andrew Romine as a backup. The West Michigan Whitecap was a former first round pick. [...]

Detroit Tigers Trade Rick Porcello to...

For Porcello, he will greatly be missed. A young stud in our rotation, he was starting to come into his own last season with a few shutouts. The groundballer had to be traded based on need only, for the Tigers have a deep rotation but a poor outfield, especially defensively. Cespedes will provide just that. As one of the best defensive left f [...]

Torii Hunter Rolling Downhill via Anti-Gay Bigot Torii Hunter Calls Reporter “Prick” Four Times. Hunter used to be our boy. His free-swinging ways were a little too much too handle, so the Tigers parted ways. Maybe, it was the perfect time. The usually mature Torii is in way over his head on the issues of sexual orientation. At his welcoming pr [...]

Victor Martinez: ‘This Is Like ...

Earlier this season, V let Dave D know his feelings: “He said, ‘Dave, do you have a minute I could talk to you?” Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski recalled today. So they went to the back of the clubhouse, into a private locker room and Martinez, representing himself at the moment – “I’ve never done [...]

Thank You, Tigers & V

We love watching you play, Victor Martinez. You’re slow, steady, patient approach was legendary to witness last season. I couldn’t imagine us not re-signing you. It appears the Detroit Tigers have paid V $70 Million for four more tries at the World Series. Es tu casa para vida, senor.

Detroit Tigers Awards Finalists

Victor Martinez, Mike Trout, and Michael Brantley (WTF?) of the Cleveland Indians have been named the three finalists for the American League MVP. We were also among the finalists for Gold Gloves. These Tigers were nominated at their position with two other players: Second Base: Ian Kinsler Catcher: Alex Avila First Base: Miguel Cabrera Kinsl [...]

How Stupid Is Kansas City?

San Francisco radio stations ban hit song ‘Royals’ in wake of World Series – ESPN. It’s like using Born in the U.S.A. as a patriotic anthem. And we’ll never be royals (royals).It don’t run in our blood,That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.We crave a different kind of buzz. WE’LL NEVER BE ROYALS. [...]

Worst Team to Ever Win the American L...

If you didn’t think these playoffs were fucked, look again… I know first hand how average those fucking losers are, the Tigers beat them every step of the way and in every meaningful game. This is truly the circus.

Alex Avila Not Retiring

Tigers catcher Alex Avila has taken a tremendous beating behind home plate over the years. He seems to catch more foul tips, bats-on-the-backswing and just about every other thing catchers suffer back there. Avila suffered another concussion in the Tigers’ ALDS Game 3 loss to the Orioles, but he says that he’s going to be fine for the start o [...]
