MLB Team Recaps- Detroit Tigers

Tom Greene | October 1st, 2019 

The Detroit Tigers, also known as the team I wrote my debut article about, and the team that’s closest to me had a rough year. To say the least. A season that looked promising turned out to be furthest away from that, and the injury bug had its way with this rebuilding team. Were playoffs in the question? Not necessarily, but was Ron Gardenhire‘s team looking for respectability in the American League? Certainly.

In a certain season of trial and error, let’s look at the trials that worked and the errors that occurred Continue reading

Into the 80s with Tom Greene- A Possible Wild Card Matchup

Tom Greene | September 6th, 2019

The end of the baseball season is getting closer. As temperatures begin to drop, the heat begins to rise on the teams that haven’t yet joined the 80-win club. After a few days away to take care of employment situations, I return to bring you two more teams that have joined our club. The Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians have been battling all season to reach a postseason berth. Now that they’ve reached 80 wins, they both feel they’re almost there. And, they’re telling the rest of the 80s club, (indirectly) “Shut your halfwit pie-holes! We’re trying to make the playoffs!”

OK, that SpongeBob reference may not have been the 80s, but we’re breaking down a team that didn’t even exist in the 80s but have some pretty awesome  “Throwbackuniforms. The Rays help the sunrise on this edition of, “Backtrax MLB!” Continue reading

Into the 80s with Tom Greene- Atlanta Braves

Tom Greene | Aug 28th, 2019 

Our “Into the 80s” series rolls on. The fourth team to join the 80-win-club is the Atlanta Braves. When Bryce Harper signed with the Phillies, most of the national media picked Philly to win the NL East. What the media didn’t say is that the Braves won the NL East last season. Harper may have made you forget about Ronald Acuña, Jr. and his team. At 80-53, they are behind the Dodgers, Astros, and the Yankees, but are still a force to be reckoned with. Continue reading

Assessing the Tigers Trade Pieces

Tom Greene    | July 23rd, 2019

At the start of the season, the Detroit Tigers had a glimmer of hope. With a rotation of Matt MooreMichael Fulmer, Matt Boyd, Jordan Zimmermannand Daniel Norris, the Tigers looked to improve upon their first season under Ron Gardenhire. However, the injury bug hit… and it hit hard. This bug depleted the rotation as well as the infield and has forced the Tigers and Al Avila into an ultimatum- time to sell and pick up prospects.

The Detroit Tigers’ Struggles, Summed Up in 500 Words

Tom Greene | June 10th, 2019

Tiger fans like me know that in early June, this season almost seems to be a lost cause. It’s just a matter of time before this team will sell some assets in return for top-100 prospects… or so, it seems. Fans aren’t thinking too positively of this as two years since the J.D. Martinez trade, only Dawel Lugo has made the Major League club. This has people questioning Al Avila, and seeing what he will do this time around. As for now, let’s break down the struggles in 500 words or less (Oops, I’ve already used 96!)
