Tigers Rumors: Detroit looks to keep Joakim Soria

The Detroit Tigers won 90 regular season games and the American League Central division title, but lost in four games to the Baltimore Orioles in the ALDS. The clear weakness of the Tigers was the pitching staff which was 24th in the league in ERA at 4.01.

Tigers reserves must show improvement next season

Detroit — All in favor? Thought so. The show of hands is impressive. Even president and general manager Dave Dombrowski believes the Tigers need a more productive bench. But here's the catch. The Tigers aren't going to allocate much money this winter to come up with one. "Our bench could be better," Dombrowski said. "But I don't think it's going...

Tiger Stadium will live again in replica form

Detroit Tigers fans — and aficionados of baseball history — have lamented the vacating of Tiger Stadium after the 1999 season. That feeling of loss was compounded when the ballpark was demolished in 2008.

2014: The 1st Inning (10-8)

While this is partly inspired by the old Sam Hoff season-as-innings feature, I’m not going to go into statistics too much, least of all cumulative team stats. No, I’m going to recap the games, because the games are what happened. (You might be surprised at how clearly you remember some of them.) I am, in fact, going to avoid too much summarizing of the “innings” in general...

Detroit Tigers: 3 burning questions this offseason

In order to get back to the World Series next year, the Detroit Tigers have some offseason issues that need to be addressed and some questions that need to be answered. 1. Will Max Scherzer come back? To me this seems like a no-brainer, but anything can happen. Pitcher Max Scherzer was the Tigers best pitcher in 2014 as he led the team with 18 wins, 252 strikeouts, and an ERA of...

Detroit Tigers offseason rumors: Alex Rios edition

Detroit Tigers: need to knows from Dombrowski presser

Each year, Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski holds an annual postseason press conference with the media. This year’s meet-up came sooner than everyone hoped and most had expected. These gatherings are usually a demonstration in how to say something without saying anything at all. Dombrowski is generally candid yet predictably cryptic in these pressers and chatted Tuesday afternoon...
