For no particular reason, former ballplayer Sean Casey went on the Dan Patrick Show today and talked about the time he got thrown out at first on a ball he hit to left field. We don’t really need a reason to relive this play, though, because it was a truly great moment in baseball history, and Casey’s retelling is…
Tigers center fielder Anthony Gose caught a long fly from Josh Donaldson during fourth inning action in Toronto today and casually started jogging back to the dugout. That’d be fine, except it wasn’t the third out of the inning—and the Blue Jays had Ryan Goins on second base.
Look, you can yell “that’s why he’s never won a Gold Glove” or “process over results” or “Miggy should probably be wearing his glove when he’s holding the runner on first base” until you’re blue in the face, but he got the out didn’t he?
A dumb squirrel jumped onto the field in the eighth inning of today’s Royals-Tigers game, and acted like it owned the damn place. The stupid thing ran around as if people were there to watch it. Hey, here’s a newsflash: they weren’t.
It’s been a disappointing season for the Detroit Tigers, who won 90 games last year and expected to be a playoff team again this season. After blowing a late lead and losing 11-9 to the Mariners last night, the Tigers’ record sits at 46-47, and there is talk about the team unloading talent at the trade deadline. Last…
Yesterday was a throw day for David Price, and with the Tigers on the road in Seattle he used the visiting bullpen at Safeco Field. He wasn’t a fan:
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has been placed on the disabled list for the first time in his career. Cabrera was placed on the 15-day DL but is expected to miss six weeks with a Grade 3 calf strain.
I dunno, man. There’s nothing in this world more obnoxious than a young boy. Positive reinforcement in form of a bunch of free swag is just going to make this worse.
Dammit, All-Star voters. The goal was to get every Kansas City Royal in the AL lineup, with only Mike Trout as the outlier. Now, Miguel Cabrera has surpassed Eric Hosmer in the first baseman spot by over a million votes, and Mike Moustakas holds an extremely slim lead over Josh Donaldson.
A weird thing happened in the top of the third inning of last night’s game between the Reds and Tigers. Right as Anibal Sanchez was about to deliver the first pitch of the inning, everyone realized that the Tigers had no left fielder. Where was Yoenis Cespedes?

As Rajai Davis was talking to Fox Sports Detroit during today's Marlins-Tigers game, a player wandered into the frame, waved at the camera, sat down, and smooched a gal before the two left. The reader who gave us the heads-up believes it was Joe Nathan, and it sure looks like him.
From Detroit Tigers beat writer Chris Iott comes this photo of pitcher Alfredo Simon's car. If I were still 11, I would swear this is one of the five coolest things I've ever seen in my life.
After calling off the 1994 World Series because of a work stoppage, and failing to reach an agreement over the winter, MLB owners were determined not to lose another season of profits—even if they had to bring in the strikebreakers. A handful of managers, and even one owner, spoke out against the use of replacement…
CBS Sports reports that Max Scherzer and the Nationals have agreed to a seven-year deal. He'll join a rotation that includes Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Doug Fister, Gio Gonzalez, and Tanner Roark. But just ask the Tigers: the best rotation doesn't guarantee anything.
The Tigers have acquired OF Yoenis Cespedes from the Red Sox for starter Rick Porcello and a minor-league pitcher.
Former Tigers manager Jim Leyland has a well-known love of singing, and it was a possible career path if that whole baseball thing hadn't worked out for him. A couple great moments of him singing have been captured on tape, like when he sang some of the Stylistics hit "Betcha by Golly, Wow" during a trip to the Motown…
