    Puig Out

    I took the kids to the Dodgers-Reds game and they saw Yasiel Puig flop about three feet from the second base bag on a caught stealing. Still: beats working.

  10. Max Scherzer doesn’t like that Sports Illustrated mentioned his contract status

    Apr 30, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Sports Illustrated, last I checked, was not a publicity firm. But apparently Max Scherzer wants it to be.

  14. Ian Kinsler homers, hits a walkoff single for the Tigers

    Ian Kinsler

    But the biggest problem for the Royals wasn’t Ian Kinsler. It was Ned Yost’s bullpen management.

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

  17. Masahiro Tanaka had a heck of a game against the Marlins on Friday

    Mar 28, 2014, 10:10 PM EDT

    Masahiro Tanaka

    Yankees GM Brian Cashman signed Japanese starter Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year, $155 million contract in January, then spent some time deflating expectations for the right-hander. His spring performance, including his final outing Friday afternoon against the Marlins, may have reinflated those expectations. Hiroki Kuroda started and tossed three scoreless innings before Tanaka entered the…

  18. Max Scherzer and the Tigers clear the air

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Last weekend the Tigers took the unusual step of calling out Max Scherzer — however implicitly — as being greedy when they announced that he has rejected the team’s offer of a contract extension. That sort of thing turns fans against a player and can put a player on the defensive. According to the Detroit Free…

    Jon Lester Getty

    The Red Sox formally announced a contract extension with slugger David Ortiz last night. Could a deal with left-hander Jon Lester be next? Well, maybe.

  21. Mike Trout on contract extension rumors: “I haven’t heard anything”

    Mar 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Mike Trout Getty

    As of late last month there were numerous reports about the Angels and Mike Trout working on a massive long-term contract extension, but as Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com notes that talk has gone silent recently. Gonzalez asked Trout what the extension rumors being quiet meant and here’s how the Angels center fielder replied: I haven’t…

  22. Why did the Tigers make such a big deal out of the breakdown of the Scherzer negotiations?

    Mar 24, 2014, 9:06 AM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Players and teams negotiate for long term contracts all the time. They reach the beginning of the season without deals being reached frequently. Also, frequently, players state that they will not negotiate during the season. There is nothing particularly unusual about any of that. So why are the Tigers making a point to throw Max…

  23. Report: Tigers have opened up extension talks with Miguel Cabrera

    Mar 23, 2014, 8:25 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    The Tigers may have hit a roadblock in extension talks with starter Max Scherzer, so they have turned their attention to first baseman Miguel Cabrera. Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the two sides are open to an extension, but the discussion remains at a preliminary stage. Cabrera moved over to first base after…

    As first reported by MLive.com’s Chris Iott, the Tigers made a final long-term extension offer this weekend to the representatives of right-hander Max Scherzer and had it rejected. The two sides will wait until the offseason to pick the negotiations back up, and there’s obviously now a very good chance that Scherzer will be hitting…

  25. Anibal Sanchez has a sore shoulder

    Mar 17, 2014, 2:19 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    Detroit choosing Justin Verlander over Max Scherzer to start on Opening Day was a reminder of just how star-studded the Tigers’ rotation is, but here’s a slight buzzkill: No. 3 starter and reigning ERA champ Anibal Sanchez was scratched from today’s scheduled start with shoulder soreness. For now the Tigers are saying they expect Sanchez…
