A joy to tune into the Tigers and within a few minutes hear Jack Morris mutter about his disappointment in the fan base and crack a sour joke about sports journalists' lack of athleticism.

surely there must be somebody out there who can right this ship by reordering the lineup via Spore or Koan or some comparable software

Less than 365 days after the Tigers took DeCaster in the 18th round of the 2018 draft, DeCaster climbed all the way from rookie ball to Triple-A Toledo, while playing on six different teams, bouncing through a series of cities and endless blur of hotels, putting up impressive numbers at every level.

DeCaster, a 24-year-old sidearm relief pitcher, has appeared in 40 games in the Tigers system, throwing 69 2/3 innings. The righty has a 1.42 ERA with a 0.804 WHIP. He has struck out 81 with just 10 walks and has allowed just three home runs. Teams are hitting just .186 against him.

Trevor Rosenthal’s Tiger debut included a first pitch that hit umpire Laz Diaz in the leg, another pitch that went behind Tyler Naquin, some fastballs that just missed triple digits and a few nasty sliders.https://t.co/sU8xKV39Nc

no way to predict that jordy mercer would get hurt

The difference between -190 and -189.449.

You play the hand you're dealt.

ron gardenhire's league-leading seven ejections are a sign of how hungry this team is

Tigers have lost 33 of their last 40 games, something the 2003 Tigers did not do. Last MLB team to do so was the 2012 Astros. Only previous time Detroit had done it was 1996.

Welcome back, Transaction Jackson.

Edwin Jackson's 9 years, 321 days between wins for Tigers is the longest gap between wins in franchise history. Previous record was 6 years, 95 days by Wild Bill Donovan from 1912 to 1918, when he came out of retirement at age 41 after managing the Yankees. (h/t @EliasSports)

The Tigers position players have posted -1.9 fWAR this year. Do you know how hard that is to do? It's the only negative WAR total of the decade, and the worst mark overall by nearly four wins. And, uh, it's hard to see things getting much better down the stretch.

The Houston Astros are poised to be one of the largest favorites in an MLB game ever when they send Justin Verlander to the mound against the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night.

The Astros are listed as -500 home favorites at Caesars Sportsbook and as high as -550 at other sportsbooks. If the price holds, Houston will be the heaviest favorite in a game in at least the past 15 seasons, according to sports betting database BetLabsSports.com, and likely longer.

i know it's a lost season and there are ~reasons~ not to bring up any of the kids, but continuing to run edwin jackson out there is pretty embarrassing

17 seasons in the bigs and a bWAR of 9.3

EIGHT passed balls in 30 games, but

Jose Abreu was staring down at home plate and not expecting a throw to third to buzz by him at all. https://t.co/WbvZrOKLcg

I consider myself a pretty decent baseball knower but the only players I could name from this team are Cabrera and BUCK FARMER

-3.3 bWAR out of the hitters is really something

mookieproof, Friday, 27 September 2019 02:15 (two weeks ago) link

Back-to-back strikeouts from Christin Stewart and Travis Demeritte close the Tigers season with a 5-3 loss. They also set a MLB record with 1595 strikeouts in a season, one more than last year's White Sox.

In any case, it's over. We all made it. Tigers finish season at 47-114. pic.twitter.com/x8TOS7GMX3
