Detroit 15, Baltimore 2

The Tigers bombed away in the official start of Spring Training baseball. Leading off: The Fuckers from last season’s playoffs, the Orioles. Perfect way to put it behind us for a new year. My dad and I were delighted to listen to the intro on Detroit’s radio station, only to have it interrupted by Jim […]

Tigers 12, Mocs 2

Detroit won the annual exhibition against Florida Southern College down in Lakeland. Credit those college kids for letting us beat the shit out of them every year, it’s been a tradition for almost 30 years (they got us a couple of times – ’05 and ’06). I’m sure it’s a thrill for the Mocs. Tim […]

Excitement in the Air

Cue the Rookie of the Year anthem… Tomorrow is officially the first Spring Training game for your Detroit Tigers! There is plenty to be excited about. These Tigers have won the last four straight Central Divisions, fending off one lame opponent after another. Oh, sure, they’ll hype everyone else but the most consistent team in […]

Tigers Pitchers & Catchers Report Thursday!

Position players will join them in one week. Our first Spring Training game is March 2nd against Florida Southern College, then against Baltimore the next day. March 22nd is the first televised game against the Atlanta Braves.

Great News, Tigers Fans

Victor Martinez of Detroit Tigers expected to be ready for start of season: “The Tigers announced that Martinez had successful surgery to repair a torn left meniscus and that he will ‘resume full activity’ in four to six weeks.” “We are very happy the surgery went well and that Victor will be ready to compete […]

Get Better Soon, V

You are the take it slow master, V, don’t feel like you have to rush back. The Tigers are stacked, plus we got four years with you. Your recovery from the ACL was legendary. Kobe and D. Rose – take note. This is my projected starting lineup for Detroit: Rajai Davis – CF Ian Kinsler – […]

Congratulations, Randy Johnson!

The Big Unit has been elected to the Hall of Fame! Randy Johnson was my favorite baseball player of all time. I rooted for him as a kid when him and Ken Griffey Jr. were with the Seattle Mariners. Then, in Arizona, he gave me the only World Series I’ve ever won. In 2001, he […]

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 […]

Detroit Tigers Trade Rick Porcello to Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes

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. […]

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 […]

Victor Martinez: ‘This Is Like My Home’

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 […]

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.
