    Bad news: the Brewers just announced that Corey Hart will have right knee surgery next Tuesday. The recovery time: three to four months. Hart missed time last year with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. It was his first season as the Brewers’ first baseman, where he took over for Prince Fielder.  Mat Gamel will likely cover…

  2. Miguel Cabrera cruises to American League MVP award

    The debate has raged on for months. And now we finally have a winner. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera was named the American League MVP this evening by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Despite the impassioned and often contentious arguments dating back to the summer, the balloting wasn’t all that close. Cabrera received 22…

  3. Torii Hunter signs a two-year, $26 million deal with the Tigers

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Torii Hunter

    It’s not 100% done yet — it’s pending a physical — but Ken Rosenthal reports that the Tigers have signed Torii Hunter to a two-year deal. The deal is for $26 million. Hunter and the Tigers are a perfect fit.  He can slide right in to right field — or left and can probably still…

  4. Brewers not working on contract extension with Corey Hart

    Corey Hart homers AP

    UPDATE: Both general manager Doug Melvin and Hart himself have denied Rosenthal’s report that they’re working on a new contract. ========== Corey Hart is heading into the final season of a three-year, $26.5 million contract and Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that he’s “discussing a new deal” with the Brewers. Rosenthal writes that Hart is…

  6. The Top 50 Free Agents of 2013

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

  7. Two of Pascual Perez’s greatest hits

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Pascual Perez fight

    Still bummed over the news of the death of Pascual Perez.  When I first started thinking about him I, and probably a ton of other people, immediately first thought of him being lost on I-285, desperately looking for the ballpark and ultimately missing his start because of it. A ballpark that was not, it should…

  8. Autopsy Report: Detroit Tigers

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants pitcher Romo strikes out Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera to win the MLB World Series baseball championship in Detroit

    I prefer to think of this as an autopsy and not a eulogy, because an autopsy deals specifically with the cause of death. A eulogy, in contrast, takes in the deceased’s whole life and tries to draw some lessons from it. I don’t think anyone can draw any intelligent conclusions about the Tigers’ entire 2012…

  9. 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…

  10. Buster Posey clubs two-run homer to put Giants back on top in Game 4

    Oct 28, 2012, 10:04 PM EDT

    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…

  12. Miguel Cabrera did not talk to reporters after Game 3 loss

    miguel cabrera media getty

    Remember when the Cardinals’ Albert Pujols skipped a session with the media following last year’s World Series Game 2 loss to the Rangers and everyone made a big stink about it? Now the Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera is traveling that same road. According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, Cabrera “was showered, dressed and heading out the door…

  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. Giants blank Tigers in second straight game, move within one win of World Series championship

    lincecum getty

    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. Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont regrets sending Prince Fielder

    Oct 26, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    World Series - Detroit Tigers v San Francisco Giants - Game 2

    Prince Fielder was thrown out at the plate in the second inning last night when third base coach Gene Lamont decided to wave the 300-pound slugger home from first base on a Delmon Young double. After the game manager Jim Leyland called Lamont’s decision “a little overaggressive” while noting that it was still a bang-bang…

  17. 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…

  18. Madison Bumgarner delivers as Giants top Tigers in Game 2, take 2-0 lead in World Series

    Oct 25, 2012, 11:18 PM EDT

    Madison Bumgarner AP

    Coming into tonight, many questioned whether Madison Bumgarner was the right choice for Game 2 after his late-season struggles carried into the postseason. However, Giants manager Bruce Bochy decided to roll the dice with his young left-hander after some mechanical tweaks rather than go with Ryan Vogelsong on short rest or Tim Lincecum. It was…

  19. Madison Bumgarner and Doug Fister match zeros, Game 2 scoreless through five innings

    The Giants ran away with Game 1, but pitching is the name of the game tonight. Madison Bumgarner and Doug Fister have matched zeros so far as Game 2 remains scoreless through five innings. Bumgarner, who struggled over his first two starts this postseason, has allowed just two hits while striking out six and walking…
