Kurt arrives in Lakeland, finds a second home.

Kurt eyes tell him these ain't the same Detroit Tigers.

Tigers owner Mike Ilitch admits he has been dealing with health issues.

Andy Dirks gone 12 weeks for back surgery.

Who will replace Dirks in left field? (And no, Nick Castellanos is NOT an option, despite what sport talk radio hosts may say)

Jose Iglesias' shin issues return.

Alan Trammell gives Ian Kinsler his blessing on wearing number 3.

Kinsler trashes Rangers in an interview with ESPN, catches flack for actually saying what he thinks, then claims his quotes were taken out of context.

Is there a Plan B at 3rd base if Castellanos flames out?

Can speed and defense replace the production of Prince Fielder, Omar Infante and Jhonny Peralta?

Justin Verlander is dealing with first world problems. After buying a $400K Lamborghini Aventador, which he waited 2 years to get, Verlander now has 9 cars, but only an 8 car garage.
