  1. Unpredictable Tigers looking like a postseason crapshoot

    All it took were games Friday and Saturday to prove the Tigers need more than relievers to win a championship general manager Dave Dombrowski is aching to bring his boss, Tigers owner Mike Ilitch.

  2. With Joakim Soria trade, Tigers should ask why they couldn't solve crisis from within

    Most teams do a better job of at least bringing to their big-league teams a farm arm or two who can be counted on to help in the late innings and not force a general manager into an 11th-hour shopping spree when a shutdown relief pitcher is needed.

  3. LeBron's Miami sojourn wasn't a mistake, but reconnection with Cleveland is uplifting

    It seems we are supposed to be rivals, Detroit and Cleveland, but Motown today can feel good about Friday's news that LeBron James is headed back to the Cavaliers.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
