I know people had complained in the past about a Tigers thread everyday and such, but they've also become nonexistent unless it's a series against Chicago or Cleveland, so here's my solution: i'll attempt to create a thread for the entire series and as it moves along I can update it to bump it up the board.

The Tigers took the first 2 games of the series and look to continue their pitching dominance over the lowly Astros. I'll post the lineups when I see them announced
Nik did pretty well throwing the ball. A behind the scenes video leading up to his pitch.
Dombrowski makes the first move to try and secure some bullpen help, no idea on the contract details or what Hanrahan will be able to provide just 12 months after Tommy John but it's a good and necessary risk for the Tigers.
