Rob Manfred threatens to relinquish ties with MiLB

Baseball’s commissioner, Rob Manfred, is at it again. The often-maligned head of Major League Baseball has entered into a rather public, and childish, back and forth during negotiations with Minor League Baseball.

Trade deadline deals mirror Detroit Tigers season

Another July 31st has come and passed, and again Detroit Tigers fans have found themselves in what feels like a bad rendition of Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day.

Section 313, Seat No. 22: Nicholas Castellanos is getting better in right field, whether you like it or not

Oh, Nicholas Castellanos. Probably the most scrutinized of all the Detroit Tigers players of the last two years.

Starting in … Read more

Miguel Cabrera hits dingers to celebrate his birthday

For the second year in a row, Miguel Cabrera homered on his birthday. Last year it was a loud and massive shot to dead center field against the Tampa Bay Rays, this year a screaming line drive that barely cleared the left-field wall at Comerica Park. Either way, Miggy loves to celebrate his birthday with the long … Read more
