  1. Tigers closer Joe Nathan finds it's a game of inches

    Now Nathan is behaving like the pitcher who tortured the Tigers for years and who treated other teams almost as cruelly. His remedy was as ironic as the mechanical malady that in earlier games had him walking batters and getting bashed.

  2. Tigers' Justin Verlander, Phil Coke finally find their groove

    Verlander, who's had a miserable month of starts, was on his game in Saturday night's 5-4 victory, tossing seven shutout innings. And Coke, who so often draws the fan's ire, closed it out, striking out three in the 10th.

  3. Bob Welch was a winner in baseball and in life

    Welch was an accomplished right-handed pitcher whose highlight moments began when he was 21 with an epic ninth-inning World Series strikeout of Reggie Jackson and spanned nearly two decades, 211 victories, and a room full of plaudits and trophies.

  4. Tigers' flaws are evident as troubling tailspin continues

    Baseball is a terribly merciless game. It doesn't suffer weakness. If you have a single component part out of kilter, you're vulnerable..

  5. Tigers must hope to ride out Joe Nathan's woes, or go shopping

    Trauma is probably too strong of a word. Anxiety is too weak. The Tigers on Monday pulled into U.S. Cellular Field for four games against the White Sox, and they could have been in a merrier state of mind.

  6. Prep outfielder Derek Hill was no consolation pick for Tigers

    The Tigers grabbed Hill and wanted him at No. 23 overall more than the two players drafted just ahead of him that some of us hand raised thought they would have preferred.

  7. Nervous Tigers turn to Eugenio Suarez on another shortstop audition

    One day's spring-training drama explains a team's sudden torments. The Tigers, rocked by what was destined to be a long layoff for their starting shortstop Jose Iglesias, are no closer today to settling the infield's crown position than they were in March.

  8. More than aberrations, Tigers' issues require answers the sooner the better

    Somehow, after days and even weeks of displaying the best baseball a big-league team could brandish, the Tigers entering Tuesday's road game against the A's had authored a horrific eight-game stretch.
