Tigers Win! Tigers Win!

Take that Minnesota! Okay, it was just one win (and the only win) in a three game home series with the Twins. Sort of like having to take two steps back to go one step forward. But I'll take what little joy I can in a season that has gone drastically wrong. My Detroit Tigers are 66-78 with 18 games... Sign in to see full entry.

0-for September

Eight games in eight days resulted in eight losses for my beloved Detroit Tigers. Until earlier today, when I had a brief opportunity to check sports on the internet, that was almost all I knew about my team for the entire month of September. I caught a Monday score (2-1 loss to the Twins) and I... Sign in to see full entry.

Plus 15 and Counting

The Detroit Tigers split the last two games of a three-game set at Chicago and have won the first two of three home games against the Seattle Mariners. This makes three in a row, seven out of their last ten, and 58 wins for the season (15 more than all of last season). It should be fairly obvious... Sign in to see full entry.

Return to Tiger Land

Plus 12 and counting is where my beloved Tigers stand at the moment. Last season Detroit embarrassed the baseball world with an American League record 119 losses while managing only 43 victories. This season, though four games under.500 at the start of the day, the Tigers have already put 55 games... Sign in to see full entry.

Win Some, Lose Some

True fans have to learn to take the bad with the good. Saturday was all good. All of my teams, the Tigers, the Pistons, and the Red Wings, won their games. Day before yesterday was very bad. The Tigers lost a second game in a row for only the second time this season and dropped two games behind the... Sign in to see full entry.

Pistons Downed Bucks Monday -- Tigers & Red Wings in Action Tonight

The Detroit Pistons thoroughly dominated the Milwaukee Bucks 109 -92 to take a 3-1 lead in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The Pistons shot a blistering 57% from the floor and 95% at the free throw line to improve their playoff average to exactly 100 points per game. They averaged just 90.1ppg...

Ouch! Tigers Stopped by Near No-Hitter!

Cleveland”s Jake Westbrook (1-1) seems to own the Tigers this year. He threw seven perfect innings of relief against Detroit last week, and nearly had a no-hitter in his 3-2 complete-game win yesterday. Carlos Pena hit his fourth home run of the season, a solo shot to left center, in the second... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers, Pistons, and Red Wings Triumphed on Saturday

The Detroit Tigers won their second in a row over Cleveland by a score of 5-2 when Rondell White hit a three-run walk-off home run. This one was more of a pitcher’s duel than a slugfest until White’s heroics in the bottom of the ninth. Ugueth Urbina picked up his first win of the season by shutting... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers Blast Cleveland 17-3

How ‘bout dem Tigers, 17 runs in one game? Last year it took them an average of five games to score that many runs. Things sure have changed in the Motor City. But you knew that. I may have mentioned it a time or two. Jeremy Bonderman picked up his second win of the season in spite of control... Sign in to see full entry.

Third place still ain't bad.

First would have been better, but it wasn’t in the cards for my Tigers yesterday. Detroit out-hit Minnesota 10-8. Unfortunately, the only hits that really count are the ones that produce runs. The Twins proved to be better at that, outscoring Detroit 4-3 to move a game and a half ahead of the Tigers... Sign in to see full entry.

Stats and Stuff

Barry Bonds missed out on another opportunity to make history last night. The greatest active player in baseball failed in his attempt to tie a Major League record for homering in eight consecutive games. In three plate appearances, Bonds struck out looking and walked twice. The strikeout came on... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers Attempt to Regain First Today

You heard me right. My Tigers haven’t folded yet. In spite of some shaky pitching from starter Nate Cornejo and reliever Gary Knotts, Detroit ended Minnesota’s 6-game winning streak with an 11-8 victory last night. The win moved the Tigers to 1/2 game behind the Twins in the tightly contested AL... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers Retain a Share of First in the AL Central

The Detroit Tigers (7-4) used a 12-hit attack and excellent pitching from Mike Maroth (2-0) and Al Levine to down the Cleveland Indians 6-1. The victory assured the resurgent Tigers at least a share of first in the tightly contested AL Central. The Chicago White Sox, one of three teams that tied for... Sign in to see full entry.

Logjams at the Top

Both the AL East and the AL Central have three-way ties at the top as a result of last night’s action. NESportsFan’s Boston Red Sox (victors over the hated Yankees), Baltimore, and Tampa Bay (who beat AL Central Chicago 3-0) are duking it out in the East. In the Central its my Tigers, the White Sox...

Ouch! 11-0 is more like a football score.

Did yesterday's walloping by the Blue Jays burst my bubble, dampen my enthusiasm, send me into the throes of deep depression over the fate of my beloved Tigers? Hell, no! When you sign up as a lifelong fan, its tacit in the agreement that you are willing to take the bad with the good. Even when its... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers Win 6th

Damn, it felt good to type that in the subject line. It was well into May of 2003 before I could say that about my no longer lowly Tigers. Detroit's 5-3 triumph over the Toronto Blue Jays improved their record to 6-2 for the still young 2004 season. They remain atop the AL Central, a game ahead of... Sign in to see full entry.

First Things First

By the way, have I mentioned that the Detroit Tigers are not only in first place in the AL Central, they've got the best damned record in the whole American League? I did? I thought so. Just checking to make sure, and to add a by-the-way mention that as of right now they're tied with defending World... Sign in to see full entry.

Tigers Top Twins in Ten, Take Two of Three

Ahhh. Alliteration -- you've gotta love it, especially when it works out so that you can write a nifty subject line about the success of your favorite team. The Detroit Tigers won for the fifth time in sixth outings by downing last season's AL Central champs, the Minnesota Twins, 6-5 in 10 innings.... Sign in to see full entry.
