2015 Lions preseason: Lions-Jaguars odds and more

They call this the dress rehearsal of the preseason and it’ll get the grand stage on Friday night in front of a national audience on CBS. The Lions are 1-2 point dogs, but are the pick according to SportsBookReview. Here’s what they had to say:  If Brady has trouble succeeding without enough targets in front […]

Justin Verlander flirts with no hitter, tears in post-game interview

Justin Verlander threw another absolute gem on Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Angels, one-hitting the Angels in a 5-0 win. Verlander lost his no-hitter in the 9th inning when Chris Ianetta put a 97-mph fastball on the chalk down the left-field line. Verlander would get the next two outs to complete the complete game […]

Erik Kramer survives apparent suicide attempt

I don’t usually post on stuff like this, but Erik Kramer is the only QB in my lifetime to quarterback the Detroit Lions within throwing distance of the Super Bowl. Kramer was the Lions’ QB in 1991 when the Lions went 12-4 and lost in the NFC Championship to the Washington Redskins. It was the first year […]

Tigers bring their June 1935 hittin’ shoes to Wrigley

The Tigers won’t pitch their way into the postseason, but if they continue to get 19 hits and score 10-plus runs a game, I think they might have a chance to win some games. I think. Keep those shoes shined, boys. Maybe bring back Ryan Raburn and his shine box for that.

Detroit drone video

Detroit drone gives us a glimpse of the Detroit Packard plant, Eastown Theater and the Fisher Body Plant. It’s pretty neat, even though things are a mess and the music, SQURL, reminds me a little of Radiohead (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but not the most upbeat music you’ll hear.)

2015 Lions preseason: Lions-Redskins odds and more

The Lions will look to carry over its success from the first preseason game into the second in Washington on Thursday. Despite an impressive 23-3 win at home against the New York Jets, the Lions are 2.5-point dogs on the road against RGIII and Washington, according to Sports Book Review. The over/under on the game is set at […]

Ameer Abdullah impresses in Lions debut

The Lions kicked off their preseason Thursday night against the New York Jets and were clicking offensively, putting up 10 points on their first two drives. Most impressive was rookie running back Ameer Abdullah who ducked and darted for 61 yards on 5 carries in the first quarter, including this 45 yarder:

David Price tweets support of James McCann

This is in response to McCann’s dust up with Jose Iglesias in the dugout on Friday night. Of course Price is going to back his old battery mate. McCann may have shown Igelsias up, resulting in Iglesias blowing up, but he most likely had the best intentions in mind, and that’s a good thing for the […]
