Undefeated! Walk off wins! Small sample sizes!

Brad Ausmus' strategy compared to Jim Leyland's - Some differences, nothing earth shattering.

TOOTBLANs for everyone, especially Nick Castellanos. But don't blame Dave Clark!

Relief pitching roles have started to shake out.

Detroit's defense isn't great, but it's better than 2013.

Tigers starting pitching remains dominant.

The offense is doing just enough to win, but it's no coincidence the Tigers started scoring runs in bunches when Miguel Cabrera's bat woke up.

MLB is working the kinks out in instant replay. Then again, the NFL has had kinls for years and is still trying to get replay right.

Sports talk radio hosts like Mike Francesa and Boomer Esiason made asses of themselves over the Mets' Daniel Murphy missing two games for paternity leave.
