Trading Tarik Skubal would be admitting to Detroit Tigers fans that the rebuild failed. The Detroit Tigers have finally found their ace in Tarik Skubal. Yes, he has struggled in his last three outings, but he’s still the best and only healthy starting pitcher left from their Opening Day roster. So naturally they should trade him, right?
Boston — Tarik Skubal, asked where his frustration level was Wednesday night after he endured his third straight rough start, let out a sort of groan, paused, and then chose his words carefully. "I can be as frustrated as I want but it doesn't matter," he said. "What I'm...
Bless You Boys
Well, the team looks better, but the winning percentage isn’t changing. After a bit of a tough loss on Tuesday, the Tigers are in danger of being swept in Boston. This would be a less than ideal way to start off a three city road trip. Fortunately, the Tigers have the better pitcher on the mound tonight. That’s no guarantee of anything, and Tarik Skubal has struggled a bit recently, but he’s still developing into one of the better young starters in the game. Go win this thing, Tigers.
Hearing boos at Comerica Park is normal these days, as the frustration from fans rolls on through June. The product on the field is abysmal.

Tarik Skubal pitched seven strong innings Tuesday as the visiting Detroit Tigers broke a three-game skid with a 5-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Tarik Skubal was scheduled to start Tuesday night, but 20 minutes before the originally scheduled first pitch — fearing the impending rain may break up his start — the Detroit Tigers announced he would be pushed back to Wednesday. However, after a two-hour and five-minute rain delay, it was clear there wouldn't be another break in the evening, so A.J. Hinch decided to let his best starter take the mound. ...
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Tarik Skubal pitched seven steady innings to win his fourth straight decision and Harold Castro hit a two-run single to lead the Detroit Tigers to a rain-delayed 5-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night. After the start was pushed back more than two hours,...
There are a plethora of words that could be used to describe the week it has been for the Detroit Tigers. Interesting… polarizing… frustrating… *%&$*$%* (or “insert expletive here”) are some of the first that comes to mind. Halfway through the week, we had watched the team dominate a five-game series against the Minnesota Twins, a series in which Detroit took four out of five games against the leaders of the American League Central. Of course, the week did not end in such a favorable fashion.
