Omar Infante

  1. Miguel Cabrera, Tigers still wondering what hit them

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:53 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera walks back to the dugout after being called out on strikes to give the San Francisco Giants the World Series during Game 4 of the MLB World Series baseball championship in Detroit

    Triple Crown winner and likely American League MVP Miguel Cabrera took an 89-mph fastball from Sergio Romo right down the pipe to end the World Series on Sunday night. An 89-mph fastball. With Quintin Berry looking nothing like a major league No. 2 hitter ahead of him and Prince Fielder flailing away behind, Cabrera certainly…

    UPDATE: Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News reports that Infante suffered a non-displaced fracture of the fifth metacarpal of his left hand. The injury will not require surgery. 11:37 PM: If the Tigers are going to try to make the Giants sweat in this series, they will likely have to do it without…

    We’re headed to extra innings in Game 4 of the World Series, as the Giants and Tigers remain tied at 3-3.

  7. Bad baserunning, bottom of the lineup does in the Tigers

    Oct 25, 2012, 11:25 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder, Buster Posey

    One of the big stories of the 2006 World Series is how poor fielding from the Tigers’ pitchers did the team in. In 2012, the focus might go a similarly specific problem; bad slides led to two outs and cost Detroit at least one run in a 2-0 loss in Game 2. The Tigers lost…

    AT&T Park is in a state of “Panda-monium.” Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval — who is affectionately nicknamed “Kung Fu Panda” — hit a Justin Verlander pitch into the right-center field seats in the bottom of the first inning of this World Series opener, giving San Francisco a 1-0 lead. Giants left-hander Barry Zito looked a…

    San Francisco Giants Victory Parade

    Less than half of the Giants’ current roster remains from the team that won the World Series in 2010. There are only 11 holdovers, or 12 if you include Game 1 starter Barry Zito despite his not being on the actual playoff roster in 2010. Carl Steward of the San Jose Mercury News has the…

    UPDATE: It’s official, Zito will start Game 1. ========== There’s no official word yet on the Giants’ rotation for the World Series, but Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that Barry Zito is likely to get the call for Game 1 against the Tigers. He’d face Justin Verlander in a matchup of former Cy Young winners…

    It takes more than a couple of goats for a team to get swept in a seven-game series. Let’s run down the five people most responsible for the Yankee meltdown. Derek Jeter‘s ankle not being a person, we’ll leave it out of this. 5. Eric Chavez – Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily, yet Chavez was worse.…

    It’s not quite Mariano Rivera throwing out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium before Game 3 of the ALDS, but this should be pretty cool: Ivan Rodriguez will throw out the first pitch tonight at Comerica Park. Rodriguez signed with the Tigers as a free agent in 2004 when they were coming off a 119-loss…

  17. Omar Infante’s thumb is OK

    Oct 17, 2012, 11:02 AM EDT

    Omar Infante

    From the “I didn’t realize this even happened as I was watching the game last night” comes Omar Infante‘s thumb, which he apparently jammed while diving for Mark Teixeira‘s single in the top of the ninth inning.  He also apparently had x-rays on it and they have come back negative. He’ll be in today’s lineup.

    Did you know that there is a 100% correlation between watching football and death? Really, every single person who has ever watched a football game has either died or will, without question, die in the future.  Stop the dying, people. Stop watching football.  It’s for your own good. In case you haven’t decided to turn…

  20. Umpire admits bad call, Joe Girardi calls for more replay

    Oct 14, 2012, 10:31 PM EDT

    Joe Girardi

    Umpire Jeff Nelson admitted after Sunday’s game that he botched the call at second base that aided the Tigers in a two-run eighth inning against the Yankees. Omar Infante was attempting to return to the bag after rounding second on a single, but he was clearly tagged out by Robinson Cano on the play. Nelson…

  21. Jeff Nelson made one of the worst safe calls you’ll ever see

    Oct 14, 2012, 7:49 PM EDT

    Omar Infante, Robinson Cano

    My belief isn’t that we need more instant replay in baseball because umpire’s are incompetent. My belief is that it’s needed because a lot of things happen in baseball that are way too tough to call at normal speed. This, however, was not one of those plays. In the eighth inning of Sunday’s ALCS Game…

    Oct 12, 2012, 12:35 AM EDT

    Justin Verlander

    Way too much Justin Verlander. Detroit’s ace held down the A’s for the second time in five games Thursday, pitching a complete-game shutout and striking out 11 as the Tigers won 6-0 to move on to the ALCS. Verlander fanned 22 in his two starts, setting a new record for strikeouts in a Divisional Series.…
