Detroit’s manager has looked like a rookie these last two days.

The Tigers just scored five runs on ten pitches.

Max Scherzer vs. Chris Tillman.

For a few years there, I saw it as my personal mission to the spread the gospel of Ron Gardenhire.

This was a day of missed opportunities for the Royals.

Torii Hunter is 39 years old and his defense has rated very poorly this season in the outfield, but he made a game-saving catch in the Tigers’ 5-4 defeat of the Indians on Saturday night at Comerica Park …

The Tigers were trailing the Indians heading into the bottom of the eighth inning Saturday night at Detroit’s Comerica Park and a loss would have put them back behind the Royals — who defeated the Red Sox on Saturday — in the American League Central standings. That’s when Alex Avila came through with probably his biggest hit of what has been a tough 2014 …

The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.

A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

Given how he’s playing these days, he’ll have to. But it’s nice to hear him say it.

Three days, three come-from-behind wins for the Rockies over the Giants.

One side effect of the Twins signing Kendrys Morales to be their everyday designated hitter is that it pushed Josmil Pinto out of the lineup and, it turns out, back to the minors.

Every man’s gotta have a code. Even a silly, antiquated and contradictory one like baseball players have.

The only thing better than Yu Darvish busting out an eephus pitch is Torii Hunter’s reaction

Two homers for Alex Gordon, a triple play for the Rockies and another shellacking of a hapless opponent by the Oakland Athletics.

Hey, blue! You gotta have you hands higher on his face to do a Vulcan mind meld!

The Cubs give Travis Wood more run support in this game than Jeff Samardzija has had in his eight starts combined this year.

What a fun, relaxing weekend. Not just for all of us who watched races and sipped julep. It was relaxing for Carlos Beltran too.

A ton of guys had multi-homer games yesterday. Ryan Braun led the pack with his three. I’m sure that won’t bother anyone.

Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

Unfortunately, there will NOT be a 162-0 team this season.

LAKELAND, FLORIDA — After clubhouses close I usually wander around and take pictures of people without asking. Then I eat ballpark food. It’s a totally healthy way to live life. Here’s some of the random things I saw while I was waiting for the game to start. Hey, it’s should-be-Hall-of-Famer Lou Whitaker! Where are you…

LAKELAND, FLORIDA — I made it into the Tigers’ clubhouse right as it opened this morning. It’s like most of the other spring training clubhouses. A bit more cramped than some because Joker Marchant is a bit older, but it’s the same scene you always see. At least physically. In terms of vibe it felt…

There’s a story in the Detroit Free Press about Ian Kinsler‘s dissatisfaction with his stolen base totals from last year. He swiped only 15 bases and was caught 11 times. The former total was his lowest since his rookie season, the latter total was his highest ever. He discusses the reasons for why this was…
