Game 2015.20: Tigers at Twins

The Tigers are back to winning, taking the Indians series with a 2-game winning streak, and now they get the Twins, who they dominated by a combined score of 22-1 to start the season. It would be nice to get some momentum to take on the road to Kansas City on Friday. The victory Sunday came with a cost, however, as Rajai Davis had to leave the game with a groin strain and is day...

The bad news: the Tigers suffered their first losing week of the year, going 3-4 with a four game losing streak sandwiched by three wins. Still, after how well the Tigers started the year, to be only a half...

Detroit Tigers: What Nathan injury means

Unfortunately, closer Joe Nathan is the blow the bullpen took as he will not be one of those arms this season. Nathan, 40, tore both the ulnar collateral ligament and flexor pronator in his right elbow in his rehab start for the Toledo Mud Hens and is now officially out...

Justin Verlander, Kate Upton attend Canucks playoff game (Video)

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and girlfriend Kate Upton are apparently hockey fans, as they attended Thursday night's Vancouver Canucks playoff Game 5 against Calgary. Verlander is still recovering from a triceps strain, and it looks like he's used the time out of the spotlight to grow a massive beard. Verlander may as well call himself Grizzly Adams now.

Reports of the Tigers’ demise were greatly exaggerated

Maybe it was their failure in the postseason against Baltimore last October (they lost seven of their last nine play off games). Maybe it was worries about their injuries and old age. Maybe it was boredom, refusing to pick the same team as always to win it all, but for some reason the sports writers of American (including those for this site) had essentially pronounced the Detroit...

Detroit Tigers off to historically torrid start

For Detroit Tigers fans of a certain age, a fast start to the regular season is nothing new.  In 1984 the Motor City Kitties rocketed out to a 35-5 record through the first 40 games, a feat which has never been duplicated. It is unlikely a team is soon going to duplicate that feat, but this year’s Tigers are certainly looking capable of matching that season’s total of 104 wins...
