    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…

  2. Tweet of the Day: Got a brain injury? #playyousissies

    Given how many careers have been derailed by concussions and all we’ve begun to find out about the ugly long-term impact of brain injuries on former athletes it seems unfathomable to me that a prominent veteran mainstream media member would still be ripping players for not playing through a concussion. And yet here’s this from…

  3. Henderson Alvarez with the unlikeliest of no-hitters

    Sep 29, 2013, 3:51 PM EST

    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,…

  4. Henderson Alvarez completes wild walkoff no-hitter

    Sep 29, 2013, 2:41 PM EST

    henderson alvarez getty

    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…

  5. Video: Prince Fielder and Cecil Fielder reunited

    Prince Fielder and his father, Cecil Fielder, have had a rocky relationship over the years, but they shared a moment yesterday at Marlins Park in Miami. As you’ll see in the video below, Cecil came down near the dugout to greet Prince and say hello to some of his teammates. Whether Prince and his dad…

  6. Brandon Phillips names his All-Swag Team

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:05 PM EST

    brandon phillips

    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports spoke with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, mostly about swag. Phillips says that baseball needs more of it, saying, “That’s exactly why African-Americans don’t play baseball. [There’s] no passion in the game. You’ve got to be like a robot. Look at basketball. Look at football. When you make an exciting…

  7. It’s great to have the Pirates back

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    At some point in the eighth inning, I remember going out to concourse of old Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta and watching Atlanta Braves fans slowly shuffle toward the exits and their cars and another long baseball off-season. It is all well and good to say that baseball fans should stay to the end but…

  8. Trailing by six runs in ninth, Tigers score six, win in 12

    Sep 21, 2013, 11:30 PM EST

    Andy Dirks

    Trailing 6-0 in the bottom of the ninth, the Tigers rallied for six runs against the White Sox bullpen to send the game into extra innings. They pushed across a bases-loaded run for the walk-off win in the 12th inning, reducing their magic number over the Indians in the AL Central to two. Tigers starter…

  9. Video: Prince Fielder snacks on a fan’s nachos after chasing foul ball

    Prince Fielder Getty

    In the top of the fifth inning this afternoon against the Mariners, Prince Fielder attempted to chase down a foul ball off the bat of catcher Mike Zunino. While he was unable to catch the ball, he didn’t walk away completely empty-handed. The best part about that is that the fan appeared to be completely…

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

    Sep 16, 2013, 3:55 PM EST

    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…

  11. Chris Davis joins the 50-homer club

    Sep 13, 2013, 9:26 PM EST

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis became the first Major Leaguer to hit 50 home runs in a single season since Jose Bautista hit 54 in 2010. With the game tied 3-3 in the top of the eighth, Davis drove a Steve Delabar 2-2 change-up to left-center for his milestone home run, putting the Orioles ahead…

  12. Eric Hosmer is quietly having a really good year at age 23

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer had a very nice rookie season as a 21-year-old in 2011, but then dropped off significantly last year and continued to struggle early on this season. There were even jokes made when Team USA chose the former No. 3 overall pick to replace Mark Teixeira in the World Baseball Classic…

  13. Torii Hunter hits a three-run walkoff homer to steal a win from the A’s

    Aug 29, 2013, 4:31 PM EST

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers

    The A’s had smacked the Tigers around for three days and then sprung out to a 6-1 lead after five innings in their series wrapup against the Tigers today. All this with Miguel Cabrera sidelined after leaving the game with an abdominal injury. Max Scherzer looked destined for only his second loss of the year…

  14. Daisuke Matsuzaka roughed up by Tigers in Mets debut

    Aug 23, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Daisuke Matsuzaka

    The Indians released Japanese right-handed starter Daisuke Matsuzaka on Tuesday after he posted a 3.92 ERA in 103.1 innings with Triple-A Columbus. The Mets signed him yesterday and immediately inserted him into the rotation to make his debut in Queens against the heavy-hitting Tigers, his first Major League appearance since October 3, 2012. The Tigers…

  15. Miguel Cabrera blasts walk-off home run as Tigers defeat the Royals

    Aug 17, 2013, 11:55 PM EST

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    It was, as baseball endings go, about as predictable as they come. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera led off the bottom of the ninth with the game tied 5-5. He was 1-for-4 to that point with an RBI single. Entering the night with a .450 on-base percentage, simply reaching with a single or a walk…

  16. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 16, 2013, 6:46 AM EST

    Houston Astros v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 5, Astros 0: Sonny Gray only has a couple of major league starts under his belt, but this one was a spiffy one: eight shutout innings, nine strikeouts. Of course a lot of guys have had spiffy starts against the Astros lately. Rule 5 pick Nate Freiman had himself a nice day too, going…

  17. Prince Fielder is going through a divorce

    Aug 15, 2013, 11:02 AM EST

    Prince Fielder

    Prince Fielder is having an off year. The other day teammate Torii Hunter came to his defense in a radio interview saying: “A lot of people don’t know what’s going on in his life … He’s out there every day, won’t come out of the lineup, no matter what’s going on off the field or…

  18. Torii Hunter: You don’t know what’s really going on with Prince Fielder

    Aug 13, 2013, 6:06 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    Torii Hunter thinks everyone needs to back off Prince Fielder, even though the first baseman isn’t putting up his usual numbers this year. Speaking on the “Ryan and Rico” show on Detroit’s 105.1 FM on Tuesday, Hunter indicated that Fielder is dealing with issues off the field. MLive.com’s James Schmehl posted a link to the…

  19. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 8, 2013, 5:17 AM EST

    Alejandro De Aza,

    All kinds of comebacks on Wednesday. Let’s call it “Comeback Wednesday!” — wait, what? Really? OK, sorry folks. The people in the marketing department said that’s impossibly lame. They’re working on something centering around the idea of “Extreme Comebacks” but they want to focus group it first. We’ll let you know. White Sox 6, Yankees…

  20. A day after Tigers embarrass Phillies, Phillies embarrass themselves

    Jul 28, 2013, 7:15 PM EST

    Jake Diekman

    Last night, the Tigers outclassed the Phillies en route to an easy 10-0 win. Max Scherzer was on point as he improved to 15-1, and Miguel Cabrera was productive as usual. A typical game for the defending American League champions. This afternoon was an entirely different story, as the Phillies were their own worst enemy.…

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

  22. What if the Brewers had kept Prince Fielder over Ryan Braun?

    Jul 22, 2013, 8:33 PM EST

    Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder

    The truth is that the Brewers made their choice well before Prince Fielder signed with the Tigers two winters age. As a small-market team already pushing the payroll to the limit in 2010, the Brewers knew they’d have to decide whether to build around Ryan Braun or Fielder. What made it an easy choice was…

  23. The American League wins the 2013 All-Star Game 3-0

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

    Chevrolet Home Run Derby

    Following the Home Run Derby from on-site is … weird. It’s a made for TV event, really. And when you’re sitting out behind the left field foul pole in a temporary press box that is sort of insulated from the sounds of the ballpark you lose your gravity pretty quickly. I had the MLB.com feed…
