Do the Detroit Tigers have any chance of reversing their slide -- and slowing down the Kansas City Royals -- to claim the AL Central again? We're talking through the team's lingering issues, which include Brad Ausmus, the shaky bullpen and a lineup that's shy a couple key pieces.
Also, a look at the Detroit Lions as they head into their third preseason game this week.
Justin Verlander is struggling, Joe Nathan can't get anyone out, and the lineup has had its ups and downs. With their AL Central lead dwindling, are the Detroit Tigers in serious trouble of dropping from contention?
We'll touch on that, plus the upcoming NHL free-agency period. Should the Detroit Red Wings chase any high-priced talent? Which of their own guys do they need to bring back? And with the Stanley Cup Finals close to wrapping up, do the Wings have the pieces in place to win another title in the near future?
Can the Detroit Tigers find their missing pieces during MLB free agency? That's the main topic up for debate on this week's episode.
Chris Iott of MLive is scheduled to join us.
Among the topics discussed:
-The fit of Brad Ausmus as manager.
- Which players should the Tigers target this offseason?
- Is a Max Scherzer trade really in the cards?
- Which position needs the most help?
Also, we'll discuss the Pistons' decent start to the 2013-14 season, and preview the Lions' road date with the Bears, in addition to making our weekly football picks.
Going to be our first show with some guest callers! First Brayden and Ryan will talk about the NBA Draft and who was the biggest winners and losers of the draft. Then, we will talk Clemson Tigers football as we will have isportsweb correspondent Kaila Burns-Heffner on to talk about what to expect from the Tigers this season. Finally, we will stay taking about Tigers but focus on the Detroit Tigers as isportsweb owner and lead Detroit Tigers writer Joe White joins the show to talk about the Tigers season so far and what to expect moving forward.
For the third straight season, the Detroit Tigers had the look of a World Series champ only to fall short in the postseason. What went wrong this time and what is ahead, especially now that Jim Leyland has stepped down as manager?
Tony Paul of the Detroit News will join us to discuss all that and more.
The Detroit News' Tony Paul will join us to discuss the upcoming Detroit Tigers season. Is this the year that the Tigers finally break through and claim their first World Series since 1984?
On our list of conversation topics ...
- Which players might surprise fans this year?
- Who is the biggest threat in the AL Central?
- Was it wise to keep Rick Porcello for the starting rotation?
All that and more as we welcome the 2013 baseball season.
Tony Paul of the Detroit News is scheduled to join us to discuss the latest Detroit Tigers' offseason developments. Anibal Sanchez re-signed with the team this week ... so will Rick Porcello wind up wearing another uniform in 2013?
Plus, are the Detroit Lions in line for big changes this coming offseason? The Lions fell by 28 to the hapless Cardinals last week, leading some around the area to call for a head coaching change.
And it's bowl season: What's on tap in the coming days?
Is Omar Infante the Detroit Tigers' answer at second base? Can they pry Aaron Hill or Willie Bloomquist out of the desert? And what will happen with the starting rotation? There are less than two weeks until the MLB non-waiver trade deadline, so it's time to talk about what the Tigers might do to gear up for a run.
And over in Hockeytown, are the Red Wings doing anything besides waiting on a Shane Doan decision? Philadelphia's signing of Shea Weber could have long-lasting implications.
Finally, we take a peek ahead to the college football season. Which games are we looking forward to?
