Who is Brad Ausmus? A Personal History of the new Detroit Tiger’s Manager

Who is Brad Ausmus? According to a female friend on Facebook, “He may not have any previous experience as an MLB manager, but he’s pretty.” Seeing as I had only heard of him on Detroit sports radio, I decided to do some digging.

Jim Leyland Gone, Who Next?

The Detroit Tigers have a large offseason hole to fill, and it will be difficult to find another manager that matches Jim Leyland. Or even comes close. Coming into a struggling Detroit Tigers team in 2006, Leyland led them to a 95-67 record and an AL Pennant. Something the Tigers have not had since ’87....

Leyland shift the order, A-Jax wakes up

Leyland-haters were silence last night when he shifted the batting line up for game 4, moving Austin Jackson back from lead off hitter to #8, and sliding everybody else up a spot. Jackson, who had previously went 3-for-33 with 18 strikeouts this series, hit 2-for-2 on the night with 2 walks, a stolen base, and...

Verlander takes the mound tonight: ALCS Game 3 Preview

Tonight, Justin Verlander takes the mound against the Boston Red Sox’s Jon Lackey. Lackey has posted very similar regular season numbers to Verlander, but I’m not worried. Verlander has turned it on this past month. Jon Lackey has allowed only 4 runs on 7 hits this post season. If we compare that with JV’s 6...

MVP! MVP! MVP!

It’s that time of year again, the time where sportswriters, fans, and players argue like little girls watching twilight. Only this time instead of Team Edward and Team Jacob, it’s Team Miggy and Team Trout. In 2012 nobody really knew who the MVP was going to be until the day it was decided, but everyone...

More Than A Game: Playoff Baseball.

Every kid who plays baseball has always had the dream, hit the walk off home run that sends their team to the World Series. For me, it would be to hit that walk off home run for the Detroit Tigers. That dream did not come true for me, but it did for Magglio Ordonez in...

MLB: Tigers Clinch the Central Division

Doesn’t matter if it’s my hometown team, Tigers took the division for a third straight year. I can be proud. Dave Dombrowski obviously has something going on.
