  1. Tigers seem to be losing big-league credentials

    The Tigers not only have lost their grip on first place, they appear this weekend to have lost their status as a big-league team. That's the degree of deterioration and pitching chaos they have experienced during the past 24 hours at Minnesota.

  2. Tigers don't whiff much on prized free agents, but this one stings

    Most times, the Tigers get their man. Tiger general manager Dave Dombrowski targets a pitcher or a hitter in July and figures out a way to bag his trophy. Friday, they lost.

  3. Tigers reportedly a finalist to land Rusney Castillo, but he's not an immediate solution

    The Tigers are finalists in the Rusney Castillo sweepstakes, according to information posted Wednesday on Twitter by Ken Rosenthal of Foxsports.com.

  4. Battered bullpen, anemic hitting make for a fatigued Tigers team

    It was assumed a team's psyches would be more like battlefield corpses. The Tigers have been slumping horribly and inexplicably since the All-Star break, and their bullpen has been battered and reviled.

  5. For a first-place team, Tigers sure make life hard on themselves

    Never in memory has a sports team from Detroit been in first place for so long and performed in such a fan-infuriating manner, a condition that didn't improve Saturday after the Tigers blew a lead in the ninth, ruined Max Scherzer's eight innings of artwork, and eventually lost in 10 innings, 3-2, to the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

  6. David Price dazzles, lives up to hype in Tigers' debut

    Price did his job. Marvelously, so. He pitched Tuesday night on a par with the extraordinary artist and left-handed starter he is, and for so many years has been, long before he joined the Tigers in last Thursday's thunderous deadline trade.

  7. Tigers fans giving manager Brad Ausmus a chance, for now

    Four months after he managed his first big-league game, Brad Ausmus can be looked at almost as a non-factor in the Tigers' 2014 season. That, by the way, is a good thing.

  8. Tigers likely want David Price for long haul, at the risk of bloated payroll

    The Tigers understood two realities Thursday when they replaced the Richter scale with the Dombrowski scale as a new means for measuring seismic activity, at least in terms of big-league baseball transactions.

  9. Five keys to blockbuster deal: Added ace gives Tigers playoff edge

    In union with his devotion to power pitchers, Dave Dombrowski's mantra is a conviction that starters who are more like locomotives are the difference in those best 3-of-5 and 4-of-7 matches that define October's playoffs.

  10. Tigers' huge trade for David Price comes at huge cost

    It was a big trade. It might have been a good trade. But it has little chance of being a great trade the Tigers made Thursday for David Price, a championship-brand left-handed starter the Tigers got with precisely that word in mind: championship.
