    You can’t predict baseball, but you can at least lay out the parameters. So let’s take a look at what the Tigers and Athletics have in store for us in the American League Division Series. The Teams Detroit Tigers (93-69) vs. Oakland Athletics (96-66) The Matchups Game 1 Friday in Oakland: Max Scherzer vs. Bartolo…

  6. Henderson Alvarez with the unlikeliest of no-hitters

    Sep 29, 2013, 3:51 PM EDT

    Henderson Alvarez

    Actually, it was prime no-hitter time: a meaningless game on the final day of the season. The opposing team had nothing to play for and thus started several backups. The umps were also looking to get things over with in a hurry. If there was ever a day for Henderson Alvarez to throw a no-no,…

  7. Henderson Alvarez completes wild walkoff no-hitter

    Sep 29, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT

    Here’s something we definitely didn’t see coming. Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez has no-hit the American League Central-champion Tigers through seven innings Sunday in Miami. It’s not a fully-loaded Detroit lineup for Game 162, but Prince Fielder is in there along with Jhonny Peralta, Omar Infante and a couple other regulars. Miguel Cabrera, Austin Jackson, Victor…

  8. Jhonny Peralta is starting in left field for the Tigers tonight

    jhonny peralta getty

    Jhonny Peralta‘s Biogenesis suspension is over. The Tigers have clinched the division. So it’s experiment time: Jhonny Peralta will start in LF tonight. He’ll play LF part of all three games in Miami. — Jason Beck (@beckjason) September 27, 2013 And it’s a pretty smart experiment. Jose Iglesias is a great gloveman at short and…

    Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski announced Wednesday evening that Jhonny Peralta is going to be activated from his 50-game performance-enhancing drug suspension this Friday — the first day that he is eligible to return.

  10. X-rays negative on Jose Iglesias’ hand

    The Tigers were given quite the scare this afternoon when Jose Iglesias was hit in the left hand by a pitch from Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen in the bottom of the sixth inning, but it sounds like he’s going to be fine. According to Bobby Nightengale and Jason Beck of MLB.com, X-rays came back negative…

  11. Tigers will have Jhonny Peralta play left field to prep for return from suspension

    Sep 16, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

    Peralta sign Reuters

    Last week the Tigers announced that Jhonny Peralta would start working out with the team again in preparation for potentially coming back from his 50-game suspension for the playoffs, but if he does rejoin the team apparently it won’t be at shortstop. Peralta has been the Tigers’ starting shortstop for the past three seasons, starting…

  12. Nelson Cruz is working out with the Rangers

    Sep 12, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    Melky Cabrera was no precedent it seems. Jhonny Peralta is working out with the Tigers and will rejoin the team for the playoffs. So too Nelson Cruz and the Rangers, reports Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Though he’s at the team’s complex in Arizona, not with the team yet. Cruz is eligible to…

  13. Biogenesis suspension almost over, Jhonny Peralta will start working out with Tigers

    Peralta sign Reuters

    Officially the Tigers haven’t made a decision yet on whether they’ll allow Jhonny Peralta to rejoin the team once his 50-game suspension is over on September 26, but the shortstop is set to begin working out with the team again. Here’s what the Tigers said on the topic yesterday in a statement: There has been…

  14. The Tigers haven’t made a decision on Jhonny Peralta’s playoff status

    Peralta sign Reuters

    While the Rangers are prepared to welcome Nelson Cruz back for the playoffs after his completes his 50-game suspension for his involvement with Biogenesis, the Tigers aren’t ready to say the same for Jhonny Peralta. According to Chris Iott of MLive.com, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski responded to inquiries on Peralta’s status yesterday by saying…

  15. Power Rankings of MLB uniforms

    Aug 20, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v St. Louis Cardinals

    Paul Lukas of UniWatch has issued his annual power rankings of Major League Baseball uniforms. Obviously this is the most subjective of exercises. If you want any more evidence of that know that the Yankees slid from fourth to seventh in the past year despite the fact they haven’t changed their look in close to…

  16. So, Jeff Pearlman: how do you really feel about Alex Rodriguez?

    Jeff Pearlman writes today that Ryan Dempster is a hero for throwing a baseball at Alex Rodriguez. But I’m not quite sure how strongly he feels about it. Please judge for yourself: F**k you for cheating. F**k you for stealing paychecks. F**k you for influencing the outcomes of games. F**k you for lying. F**k you for dragging us all…

  17. Bud Selig calls his suspension of Alex Rodriguez “eminently fair”

    Aug 15, 2013, 10:20 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    At the owner’s meetings in Cooperstown, New York, Commissioner Bud Selig defended his decision to suspend Alex Rodriguez through the 2014 season for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, calling it “eminently fair”. Selig added he was “trying to be fair, trying to be logical and rational”, per ESPN’s Mike Mazzeo. As evidenced by his…

  18. Nelson Cruz to stay in playing shape

    Aug 13, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    Nelson Cruz may or may not be welcomed back to the Rangers when his suspension is up (and if the Rangers make the playoffs) but he’s not giving up on the idea: Nelson Cruz to head to the Dominican for 12 days to work out at home gym and #Rangers facility there. Still could play…

  19. Video: Jose Iglesias makes an incredible barehanded play

    Aug 12, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Doug Fister, Jose Iglesias

    The Tigers parted with outfielder Avisail Garcia last month to land Jose Iglesias as a fill-in option for Jhonny Peralta at shortstop. And this incredible barehanded play tonight against the White Sox is an example of why. My goodness. That almost defies the laws of physics. Jhonny who?

  20. Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta not likely to rejoin their teams following their suspensions

    Aug 10, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Jhonny Peralta, Jim Leyland, Tony Randazzo

    At least that’s what Pedro Gomez is hearing: Heard from a pair of reliable sources that it’s highly unlikely Nelson Cruz (Rangers) and Jhonny Peralta (Tigers) appear in the postseason. — Pedro Gomez (@pedrogomezESPN) August 10, 2013   If this holds I suppose we can call it the “Melky precedent.” Of course, all bets are…

  21. Man who cost his team a pennant due to his gambling problems calls Jhonny Peralta “selfish”

    Aug 6, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Denny McLain

    Denny McLain is the best. Yes he won 31 games in 1968 and back-to-back Cy Youngs in ’68 and ’69, but according to a 1970 Sports Illustrated story he also cost the Tigers a pennant in 1967 when, in late September, he suffered broken toes at the hands of bookies to whom he owed $46,000.…

  22. Posnanski: Fair or unfair, Major League Baseball making example of Alex Rodriguez

    Like it or not, MLB is making an example of Alex Rodriguez.

  23. A-Rod handed 211-game ban; eligible pending appeal

    Aug 5, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    alex rodriguez getty

    New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was one of 13 Major League Baseball players who were suspended on Monday for receiving performance-enhancing drugs from a shuttered Miami wellness clinic, the league announced. Rodriguez received a 211-game punishment from the league, which would be effective on Thursday and last through the end of the 2014…

  24. Jesus Montero’s future in doubt with 50-game ban

    Aug 5, 2013, 2:27 PM EDT

    Jesus Montero

    Two years ago, one could have looked at the group of the 14 suspensed Biogenesis players — Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera, Jesus Montero, Francisco Cervelli, Antonio Bastardo, Jordany Valdespin, Sergio Escalona, Fernando Martinez, Cesar Puello, Fautino De Los Santos and Jordan Norberto —  and concluded that, besides Braun, Montero…

  25. What do the Tigers and Rangers do about Jhonny Peralta and Nelson Cruz come playoff time?

    Aug 5, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT

    Jhonny Peralta, Jim Leyland, Tony Randazzo

    The two Biogenesis suspensions with the most on-field impact are easily the Rangers’ Nelson Cruz and the Tigers’ Jhonny Peralta. One leads his team in homers the other is his team’s starting shortstop. Both, assuming their suspensions start today, will be eligible to return for the playoffs if their teams make it there (Peralta could…
