Topics:

Swept in Cleveland. But there's no reason for DOOM.

Don't blame the plane or Zubaz for the losing streak, blame the starting pitching.

The odd use of Phil Coke: Was it do to the team "trying to get him going" or "The Tigers' bullpen was so worn out, who else would you have used?"

The latest bullpen savior, Corey Knebel, is called up.

The Robbie Ray experiment was a success, but it was time for it to end.

Danny Worth, shutdown reliever.

Any solution at shortstop won't include Stephen Drew. But don't expect Hernan Perez or Eugenio Suarez to be the solution, either.

Prince Fielder to undergo season ending neck surgery, Ian Kinsler continues to impress. The Tigers will be winning the trade for some time to come.

Rumors of Dave Dombrowski becoming the next baseball commissioner won't go away.
