2022 Detroit Tigers: A Return to Relevance

We have all heard the narrative, seen the similarities, and witnessed their performance. The 2019 Detroit Tigers are a lousy baseball team, just as the 2003 Tigers were a terrible baseball team. 2003 marked the lowest point of a decade long funk the Tigers had been experiencing, finishing with a winning percentage of .265, and … Read more

Former Tiger Phil Coke attempting a comeback

Former Tigers’ relief pitcher Phil Coke will attempt a major league comeback in the upcoming season, and he will do so as a knuckleballer.

2015 Detroit Tigers final report card – Starting pitchers

Max Scherzer – 1, Matt Williams – 0 [VIDEO]

This past offseason, former Detroit Tigers ace and 2013 American League Cy Young award winner Max Scherzer took his talents to the nation’s capital, signing a deal worth over $200 million to pitch for the Washington Nationals. Instantly becoming the top dog for the staff, Scherzer by and large has performed well.

Despite the 4.50 ERA in 11 second half starts, he is posting a very remarkable 2.91 ERA for a Nationals team that has been plagued with injuries, but mostly under-performed all season long. ‘Mad Max’ Scherzer has always been a rather passionate guy about his pitching and a hard worker, one who will always give 110%.

During Friday night’s game vs. the Miami Marlins, Max had two outs in the seventh inning of 2-2 tie, when Nationals manager Matt Williams came trotting out of the dugout, presumably to take the ball out of Max’s hands.

Let’s just say that Scherzer did not want to depart the game.

I’m pretty sure my 5-year old niece can make out what Max said to his manager. There’s a guy who wants to finish what he started, you have to admire that from a starting pitcher.

My favorite part is when the manager and the other players just take an immediate U-turn back to their respective positions after Scherzer states his case. Hey, he really f—ing wants it, alright??
