 A pair of long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters, Greg Eno and Al Beaton, are The Knee Jerks! Eno and Big Al broadcast live every Monday night at 7PM Eastern on the Sports Geeks Radio Network!

In the first hour, we talk about the treatment of retired players by MLB and the MLBPA with the author of "A Bitter Cup of Coffee," Doug Gladstone.

"A Bitter Cup of Coffee" tells the true story about a group of former big-league ballplayers denied pensions as a result of the failure of both the league and the union to retroactively amend the vesting requirement change that granted instant pension eligibility to ballplayers in 1980.

Those players are now getting benefits, but it's only a "partial victory," as Doug will tell us.

"A Bitter Cup of Coffee" is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

In the 2nd hour, Eno and Big Al will cover a busy week in Detroit sports, including the Tigers' ALCS loss to the Rangers, the Lions falling to 5-1 after losing to the 49ers and the MSU Spartans knocking off the Michigan Wolverines for the 4th consecutive year.

We'll also play the birthday game and name our respective Jerk of the Week!

Be here at 7PM every Monday night for the latest and greatest in sports talk...sports talk with a Detroit attitude!
