The weather has cooled down, but that is not the same on the hot stove front in Major League Baseball. These next few months will go a long way in selling tickets for the 2016 Major League Baseball season, but which teams will have a legitimate chance of the dethroning the World Series Champions in the Kansas City Royals? How active can we expect the big market teams to be in free agency? Will the New York Yankees be buyers? Will the New York Mets build on their recent success? Be sure to check out the 300lbsofsportsknowledge Show this Thursday night at 8PM Eastern/5PM Pacific as I will be discussing free agency in Major League Baseball.
Taylor "Gator" Phillips and Ed Smith break down the Tigers trading Ian Krol and Gabe Speier to the Atlanta Braves for Cameron Maybin, which means Rajai Davis is likely gone. We'd also like to note that the "Tigers sign Zach Greinke" article is a fake article, which means it didn't happen. The Tigers also hired Lloyd McClendon as the AAA Toledo Mud Hens manager.
We also touch on the Lions hiring Rod Wood as president, announcing their relocation on radio to 760 (am) WJR, and winning 18-13 over the Oakland Raiders at Ford Field, which pretty much ruins their chances at getting the first overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, which still stands to be Ole Miss Rebels junior defensive end Robert Nkemdiche.
Moving over to college football, the #9 Michigan State Spartans upset the #3 Ohio State Buckeyes 17-14 at The Horseshoe, and the Michigan Wolverines pull away with a 28-16 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions at Happy Valley.
In college basketball, the Wolverines fell flat against the Xavier Musketeers 86-70 AT HOME, while the Michigan State Spartans blast through Arkansas Pine Bluff 92-46 and took care of the Eastern Michigan Eagles 89-65.
The Pistons beat the Timberwolves 96-86 at Target Center but give one away to the Washington Wizards 97-95 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. They also got destroyed by the Milwaukee Bucks 109-88 on the road.
The Red Wings hang on in regulation to beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 but give up another late third-period game-tying goal and still beat the St. Louis Blues 4-3 in overtime at Scottrade Center. Plus, former Red Wing Landon Ferraro was claimed off waivers by the Boston Bruins.
Kris Bryant is your NL Rookie of the Year. Joe Maddon is your NL Manager of the Year. And your NL Cy Young Award winner? Jake Arrieta. The Chicago Cubs have swept through this week's MLB awards. So let's look at just how deserving these winners are, and what this can do for the team moving forward.
The Bulls and Blackhawks both begin road trips tonight, with the Hawks taking on the Oilers and Bulls battling the Suns in Phoenix. Derrick Rose is hurt again, and the Hawks have been dreadful on the road this season. Can either team pull off a winning road trip?
