    Max Scherzer

    Detroit hasn’t gone through with an arbitration hearing since Dave Dombrowski took over as general manager in 2002, settling with every player during that time, but the streak may be in jeopardy. Max Scherzer requested $7.4 million and the Tigers countered at $6.05 million, and Jason Beck of MLB.com writes that “they continue to talk,…

    With Anibal Sanchez locked up the Tigers rotation looks pretty spiffy: Justin Verlander Max Scherzer Anibal Sanchez Doug Fister Rick Porcello/Drew Smyly Six legit major league starters for five slots is not a bad position to be in.

Schlereth was the Diamondbacks’ first-round pick in 2008 and went to the Tigers in the big three-team deal with the Yankees involving Curtis Granderson, Max Scherzer, Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson, Edwin Jackson, and Phil Coke in December of 2009. He tossed 49 innings…

    Things are getting pretty wild in Game 4. After the Giants took the lead in the top of the sixth inning on a two-run home run by Buster Posey, Delmon Young tied it up in the bottom of the frame with an opposite-field solo blast off Matt Cain. It was Young’s third home run of…

    Posey Getty

    Buster Posey has had a pretty quiet postseason with the bat. But he just struck at the right time for the Giants. Posey turned on a Max Scherzer change-up in the top of the sixth inning for a two-run homer to give the Giants a 3-2 lead. The ball landed just inside the left field…

    Giants right-hander Sergio Romo had a dominant regular season, posting a fantastic 1.79 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 63/10 K/BB ratio across 55 1/3 innings. And he’s been even better in these 2012 playoffs. Romo blew through three straight batters in Saturday night’s World Series Game 3 victory over the Tigers and has now gone four…

  13. Prince Fielder falters for flailing Tigers

    Oct 28, 2012, 12:05 AM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    While Saturday’s shutout loss was definitely a team effort, Prince Fielder‘s struggles are a central reason the Tigers are now just one defeat away from losing the World Series. Swinging at pitches off the plate, Fielder went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Game 3. He grounded into a double play his first time up. Overall,…

  14. Don’t start with the Justin Verlander on three days’ rest stuff

    Oct 27, 2012, 11:53 PM EDT

    Justin Verlander

    Tigers ace Justin Verlander gave up five runs in four innings against the Giants in Game 1 of the World Series.

    Giants righty Ryan Vogelsong wasn’t especially sharp, allowing five hits and four walks over 5 2/3 innings, but he kept the Tigers scoreless and his bullpen continued that pattern of zeroes as San Francisco won Game 3 of the World Series 2-0 on Saturday in Detroit to take a 3-0 Fall Classic lead. Tim Lincecum…

  16. Justin Verlander will not start Game 4 on short rest

    Oct 26, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    Jim Leyland, Justin Verlander

    After last night’s loss Jim Leyland was asked if he’d consider bringing back Justin Verlander on short rest to start Game 4 if the Tigers were facing elimination and the manager made it clear that’s not an option. Verlander threw just four innings in Game 1, which normally might make coming back on short rest…

  18. Giants to face rotation dilemma in World Series

    Ryan Vogelsong

    With plenty of time to set things up, the Tigers have already announced their rotation for the World Series (Justin Verlander, Doug Fister, Anibal Sanchez and then Max Scherzer). The Giants have some decisions to make. Here’s one guess at how it could go: Game 1: Wednesday – Barry Zito – four days’ rest Game…

    The Tigers have no reason to make any changes to their postseason starting rotation. So they won’t. Tigers manager Jim Leyland told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that Justin Verlander will start Game 1, Doug Fister will start Game 2, Anibal Sanchez will start Game 3 and Max Scherzer will start Game 4 no matter which…

    Tigers Reuters

    We know one team who will still be alive next Wednesday. Finishing off a thoroughly dominating performance, the Tigers topped the Yankees 8-1 at Comerica Park today to sweep the ALCS in four games and advance to the World Series. CC Sabathia is a pretty good pitcher to have on your side facing elimination, but…

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Max Scherzer was pulled for left-hander Drew Smyly with two on and two outs in the top of the sixth inning, so Joe Girardi called on Alex Rodriguez to pinch-hit for Raul Ibanez. However, there was no redemption to be found. Rodriguez hit a routine fly ball to center field to strand two runners and…

    CC Sabathia

    No, the Yankees probably weren’t beating the Tigers four times in five days either. Still, Wednesday’s rainout made the assignment that much tougher. – Because they’re playing four games in four days, the Yankees have lost the ability to pitch Game 4 starter CC Sabathia on three days’ rest in Game 7. At best, he’ll…
