There are no dynasties in baseball anymore. But the Tigers have been a mini-dynasty in the AL Central, having won it for the past four seasons. In the past two weeks, however, their aims have radically changed.

The Royals are trying to no-hit the Tigers in Friday night’s game. Chris Young started and pitched five productive innings before giving way to the bullpen.

He faced six batters and retired them all. And he cranked it up to 99 m.p.h.

It won’t get the attention of his earlier bullpen moves, but it’s hard to tell what Brad Ausmus was thinking in the ninth inning Sunday.

The Tigers and Royals both lost, which means that the AL Central won’t be decided until Sunday afternoon.

It was a day of blowouts and fine pitching performances.

Every ten years or so, the Tigers get a walkoff grand slam. Like, every ten years or so, basically to the week.

Day baseball, man. Day baseball.

Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season. Next up: The Detroit Tigers. The Big Question: Are the Tigers still the clear favorites in the AL Central? Detroit has won…

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski was initially coy last week when asked if Miguel Cabrera would be moving from third base to first base following the Prince Fielder trade, but today he admitted that’s the plan. No surprise, certainly, as Cabrera was banged up physically a lot this year and has long been stretched defensively…

Following the blockbuster trade that sent first baseman Prince Fielder to the Rangers and second baseman Ian Kinsler to the Tigers, everyone on the planet simply assumed that Miguel Cabrera would move over from third base to first base while prospect Nick Castellanos would take over at third. It makes sense, as Cabrera was becoming…

Venezuelan newspaper El Universal reports that Miguel Cabrera has told the Tigers that he wants to play first base. This is probably a relief to everyone in the Tigers organization, who you have to figure WANT Cabrera to play first base now that Prince Fielder is gone. And want to have third base open for…

Give lots of credit to Dave Dombrowski; the potential nightmare back half of Prince Fielder‘s nine-year, $214 million contract is no more. Instead, Fielder and the $168 million he’s still owed is gone after two mildly disappointing seasons in Detroit, with Ian Kinsler‘s more palatable deal coming back. The Tigers sent along $30 million in…

The Tigers have made a habit of big splashes in the offseasons. Three years ago, it was Victor Martinez. Then Prince Fielder. Last winter, the Tigers signed both Anibal Sanchez and Torii Hunter. Those deals have helped them reach the postseason each year, but the ultimate prize has remained out of reach. As the Tigers…

John Lowe of the Detroit Free Press has the story from Boston: Jhonny Peralta is a free agent, and the Tigers have filled his position with Jose Iglesias. So early this morning, in a corner of the cramped clubhouse after the season ended, Peralta was asked, “Have you thought about telling the Tigers you would…
Sep 16, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT
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…
