  1. Porcello plus iffy infield could be trouble

    Christina Kahrl

  2. Miguel Cabrera's absolutely huge deal

    Christina Kahrl

    Three hundred million dollars for Miguel Cabrera? I don't think Dr. Evil ransomed the entire world for that much in the last "Austin Powers" sequel. OK, the deal is reportedly for something less than $300 million, but that's still epic. There are a f...

  3. Does AL MVP race have an easy answer?

    Christina Kahrl

  4. WARfare, 2013 style

    Christina Kahrl

    With the season roughly halfway over, I thought it would be a good idea to dig into the numbers to see what WAR (wins above replacement) is telling us. I'll start with a man who has been at the center of a lot of WAR talk in the last year. 1. Migu...

  5. Marlins remain ugly stain on MLB landscape

    Christina Kahrl

    Twenty years into their history, and there's still something fishy about the Marlins. I don't just say that to be glib. Let's start with a thought exercise. If you were a fan of a team, would you make this deal with the devil: You get 18 years of var...

  6. You've got mail -- the Bill James Handbook

    Christina Kahrl

    Just like the regular season, the offseason has its rhythms. Free agents file, somebody signs early, guys get non-tendered, and the Hot Stove goes from its faint, rattling simmer to explosively boiling over without all that much warning. But as we wa...

  7. Leyland uses every bullet, not just best

    Christina Kahrl

    DETROIT -- Where the Tigers are concerned, it's easy to lose yourself in the statistical feats of their star sluggers: Miguel Cabrera's Triple Crown, of course, but also Prince Fielder notching his sixth consecutive 30-homer season and Austin Jackson...

    Christina Kahrl

    DETROIT -- Down three games to none, facing a better rotation in its own park backed by a lineup built around Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera, how hopeless does the task confronting the Yankees seem? As tough as it will be for them to get back ...

  9. Kuroda vs. Sanchez unfamiliar territory

    Christina Kahrl

    NEW YORK -- Game 1 was ominous for the Yankees and Tigers for very different reasons: The Tigers for their latest unhappy reminder that perhaps Jose Valverde's glaring vulnerability is potentially the stuff of broken postseason dreams, the Yankees be...

  11. Porcello, Boesch put Tigers back on top

    Christina Kahrl

    The Tigers came into this thing as favorites. Whether the division or the season, the losers of 2011's American League Championship Series weren't satisfied with a one-season run. They're supposed to win, with the AL Central representing the very lea...

  12. State of that other division, the AL Central

    Christina Kahrl

    We're almost a fifth of the way into the season, and many of the expected storylines in both leagues have gotten the usual attention. The East divisions get the attention because both provide full five-team tangles of contenders and pretenders, with ...

  15. Position production: At the corners

    Christina Kahrl

    Are first basemen doing more to put runs on the board today than they did 10 years ago? How about 25 years ago? How do you make broad comparisons like this? With any question like this you can get hung up on the differences between eras. Run-scori...

    Christina Kahrl

    With their 3-1 win over the A's Friday night, the Tigers clinched their first division title since 1987, and their first AL Central title ever. That ended a 24-year run without a division crown, which, per ESPN Stats & Info, had been the fourth-longe...
