Detroit Tigers looking more likely as the landing spot of Max Scherzer in 2015 and beyond

The annual Winter Meetings have come and gone. Agent Scott Boras described his client as “kind of a Peyton Manning, number 1 type of guy” and that “every general manager in baseball wants Max Scherzer on his team,” but the offers have not exactly come flying towards Boras and Max Scherzer. With Jon Lester off the market, Scherzer is clearly the best free agent pitcher remaining...

Did Max Scherzer really have his breakout in 2012?

Max Scherzer was on my fantasy baseball team in 2013. (Note: I recognize you don’t care about my fantasy team. This is in the service of a point, I promise.) My fantasy baseball team that year won the league championship, and Scherzer was a big reason why. I don’t remember if I thought to myself […]

Detroit Tigers Top 10 Prospects

The Detroit Tigers minor league system has been one of the worst in the majors for quite a few years now. But they still have a few guys that could come up and help the major league club. Rebuilding the Tigers’ system will have to happen through the draft. I fell the 2014 Tigers draft class was a pretty good start.  Derek Hill is the jewel of the system, and guys like Grayson...

Olbermann names Verlander the “Worst Person in Sports”

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander is living comfortably to say the least so it may raise a few eyebrows when someone well off like himself takes to social media to complain about a $40 car ride. Well that’s exactly what happened the other day when Verlander took to Twitter ******** about Uber’s “surge” pricing. .@Uber I used to love you and now your ridiculous surge charges...

It’s World Series or bust for the Detroit Tigers in 2015

The task is very straightforward for manager Brad Ausmus and the 2015 Detroit Tigers team: Bring a championship to the Motor City, or else. Yoenis Cespedes was acquired by the Tigers who in turn shipped Rick Porcello to Boston last Thursday. Cespedes is a flashy, attention grabbing athlete – equipped with a flame spitting Lamborghini Aventador – who is able to put more fans in...

Justin Verlander bemoans Uber’s surge charges in Instagram post (pic)

One could reasonably expect that a person with the considerable wealth of Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander wouldn’t need rely upon the services of Uber. Moreover, one also reasonably could expect that a person with the wealth of Verlander wouldn’t feel compelled to complain about the outfit’s rate surges.

Tigers' lineup still formidable but questions about pitching remain

With the Winter Meetings over and the offseason at the midway point, here is a look at how one of the Indians rivals in the AL Central, the Detroit Tigers, have fared: DETROIT TIGERS Last season: 90-72, first. Lost to Baltimore in three games in the American League Division Series. Indians vs. Tigers last two years: 12-26 including 8-11 last year. What They've Accomplished The Bermuda...

Yoenis Cespedes has a Lamborghini that spits fire (PHOTOS)

Yoenis Cespedes has been a member of three MLB teams in the last year. And now that he’s been shipped off to the Motor City, it makes perfect sense that he’d buy a flashy car. And that’s exactly what he did. He bought a Lamborghini Aventador, which tops out at 200 mph. But he took it next-level and decided to get it customized with flames that shoot out of the tailpipe. That is badass...

Yoenis Cespedes’ Lamborghini shoot fire (VIDEO)

Instagram New Tigers outfielder Yoenis Cespedes just figured out how to heat up Michigan winters with his Lamborghini Aventador that SHOOTS FIRE.  No, he doesn’t live inside a movie set.  According to the car’s Wiki page, it goes 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and its top speed is 217.  The black on black beauty’s starting MSRP is $397,000.  It’s a gas guzzler at up to 11 miles...

Biggest Sox Trade Loss Might Be Alex Wilson

(USAToday Sports)It has gone almost completely unnoticed that RHP Alex Wilson was included in the package that netted the Red Sox Rick Porcello. Yoenis Cespdes was obviously the big chip that was moved for the right-handed starter, but Wilson may end up being the guy we regret sending to Detroit. In fact, FenwayNation awarded Wilson our 2014 "Under The Radar Award". Why? Wilson hurled...

The best MLB free agent is still available

Despite a raucous string of events at the Winter Meetings—including deals for Jon Lester, Matt Kemp, Jimmy Rollins, and Yoenis Cespedes—the best player on the open market is still out there. After all the conspiring and proficient machinations on the part of Dodgers VP of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman were pelted out and echoed for days, it’s probably safe to say Max...

Grading the Tigers’ Winter Meeting deals

If there’s one thing Dave Dombrowski is good at as the Tigers general manager, it’s making each and every offseason very interesting whether it’s a big free agent signing, trade or simply sitting on his ass at the more opportune times. This offseason has pretty much stuck to that pattern, especially with the Winter Meetings now over so lets take a look at the two deals Dombrowski...

Yoenis Cespedes’ value lies solely in his name

Yoenis Cespedes is an extremely interesting case among Major League outfielders. He isn’t nearly as good as the general perception of his skill set might indicate. Yet, in the past six months, he’s been traded twice, for two fairly notable pitchers: first for Jon Lester and now he’s headed to Detroit in exchange for Rick Porcello. Although the two pitchers were rentals,...

Tigers, Red Sox swap Yoenis Cespedes, Rick Porcello

The Tigers needed another outfielder. The Red Sox needed starting pitching, and needed to trade an outfielder or three. The fit seems reasonable, and so now it appears that Detroit and Boston have exchanged Yoenis Cespedes for Rick Porcello, with the Tigers getting two additional players as well. And to add to the intrigue, the […]

Justin Verlander posted a photo of himself at the Seahawks-Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia Sunday and the commenters let him have it.  Apparently attending a game between two division leaders instead of watching the Lions play the Tampa Bay Yucks is frowned upon. Detroit dudes also don’t accept scarves either.  Now, I have no issue with JV going to Philly...

It goes something like this: Elite starting pitching Run producers in the batting order A shaky bullpen A weak bench This model has been good enough to land the AL Central crown four years in a row.
