  • From MLive: A Look Back At The Tigers Season

    "Fans often look at their favorite team through a microscope. They celebrate every victory, mourn every loss. They pick apart every roster move, lineup decision and pitching change. They bemoan every blown save, fielding error and baserunning blunder. The players are the ones going through the ups and downs of a six-month season. They have to avoid letting the highs and lows affect them. They have to look at a season through a telescope to focus on the big picture."

    "Yet, it shouldn’t be overlooked several of general manager Dave Dombrowski’s moves did pan out. David Price, traded to the Tigers at the deadline in late July, pitched seven clutch, shutout innings Sunday. Second baseman Ian Kinsler, acquired in a trade for Price Fielder, hit a solo home run that gave the Tigers an early lead. Outfielders J.D. Martinez and Rajai Davis contributed much toward the division title."
