Rick Porcello Continues to Roll: Tiger Tales

But he's missing his next start because of tightness in his side. Hey, Rick, can you not flirt with injuries right now? Thanks.

Joba Chamberlain is Back, Baby: The Beanball

You see what happens when you let a guy just go ahead and grow his facial hair as long as he wants? Stupid Yankees ...

Detroit Tigers’ Closer Joe Nathan is Lights Out: Motor City Bengals

It's been a long time since the Detroit Tigers and their fans had a closer they felt comfortable with ... Even when Jose Valverde went 49 for 49 and didn't blow a save for the entirety of the 2011 season, it was never easy.

Remember when it was a late-and-close game, Joe Nathan would take the mound, and we'd all say, "Great, this game's basically over"? Yeah.

That's good news for the Tribe. Maybe they can lead the AL Central in walk-off home runs again.

Will Middlebrooks fractured his finger on Friday night, and that leaves the Red Sox with infield issues. That's in addition to their "Awful Ballpark" issues.

Fielder to miss few games with herniated disc in neck: MLB.com

The consecutive games streak has come to an end. Question of the day: now that the streak is over, will Prince start taking regular days off, like normal players?

Tigers social

"Stuck in Boston" is a terrifying phrase.

I guess if you've got to travel by bus, wearing Zubaz is the way to do it.

Check out Max, probably crushing the hell out of some candy back there.

You can run, Dude in the Background, but you can't avoid this photo.

You can argue with this picture, but your argument would immediately become invalid.
