  2. Cry of the Tigers

    Detroit's slim chance to win the AL Central may have died on Monday night at Jacobs Field in one of the best games I've seen all year. Neither Paul Byrd nor Kenny Rogers was particularly sharp, but both battled and got through some quick innings to ...

  3. In Rogers they trust

    If it was a young pitcher, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said, then the team probably would have taken the decision out of the player's hand and made a judgment on their own. But this is Kenny Rogers's 19th year in the big leagues, and so du...

  8. Rogers' stuff too good for Cards

  11. Lack of plate patience sinks Mets

    Jeff Suppan channels Kenny Rogers for a night while Steve Trachsel channels ... well, Steve Trachsel. Suppan pitched an outstanding game, pounding the strike zone, and I'm sure it helped knowing he had a comfortable lead from the third inning on. Th...

  16. null

    Kenny Rogers returns to the mound tonight for the Rangers. Tomorrow, Rafael Palmeiro is eligible to play for Baltimore. Frankly, I'm pleased. This is fantasy baseball. Not politics. Of course, we're entitled to judge these men -- it's the American...
