Dan Bartley fills in for Ed Smith tonight.
The Tigers take Game 2 of the 4-game series 6-2 over the AL West-leading Houston Astros. Alfredo Simon goes 7 innings and gets the win, and Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzelanny pitch 1-2-3 8th and 9th innings to seal it. Also, a Justin Verlander update!
Small update: The Michigan State Spartans Football team recruits 3-star safety Kenney Lyke.
An update each on Game 2 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks and Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs between the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning.
I ask Dan what his opinions are on Mike Babcock leaving the Red Wings and FOX 2 and FOX Sports Detroit teaming up to cover Lions preseason games this year.
Ed Smith and I analyze the Tigers' rout of the Minnesota Twins in the rubber finale of the 3-game series at Comerica Park. We also preview the upcoming series with the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
The Grand Rapids Griffins and Rockford Icehogs face off in Game 4 of the AHL Western Conference Semifinals in the 2015 Calder Cup Playoffs. The Griffins led the series 2-1 going into the contest. Game 5 is Sunday at 5.
The Lions hire 3 men into their front office and sign defensive lineman Corey Wootton to a 1-year deal, the Michigan State Spartans Football team recruits another 3-star player, and Red Wings great Gordie Howe announces the construction of his self-named International Bridge from USA to Canada and will have a second round of stem cell treatments.
The Michigan State Spartans square off with the Duke Blue Devils in the Men's Basketball Final Four National Semifinals. If they win, will they take on the Kentucky Wildcats or the Wisconsin Badgers?
The Red Wings take on the Minnesota Wild in St. Paul and try to get back to their winning ways and get two important points in the Atlantic Division. I'll also preview their Easter Sunday game with the Washington Capitals at Joe Louis Arena, which starts at 5.
The Tigers wrap up Spring Training Grapefruit League play in St. Petersburg with the Tampa Bay Rays. They have Easter Sunday off before Opening Day in Detroit Monday against the Minnesota Twins. Twins starting pitcher Ervin Santana was suspended 80 games for use of Stanozolol.
The Pistons return home to the Palace of Auburn Hills and play the Miami Heat.
The Pistons take on the Chicago Bulls at United Center.
The Tigers play their last preseason home game of 2015 at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Florida, against the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Red Wings (at least should) get Pavel Datsyuk back when they travel to St. Paul, Minnesota, and take on the Wild. They were tied with the Boston Bruins with 93 points after blowing a 2-0 lead and losing in regulation. I still think the Wings will lose in regulation again.
The Michigan State Spartans get set to take on the Duke Blue Devils in the Final Four National Men's Basketball Semifinal game tomorrow at 6:09 on TBS.
The Tigers and Minnesota Twins start yet another very important 3-game series at Comerica Park. Who will be in second place in the American League Central Division? Can the Tigers or Twins jump over the Kansas City Royals for first place? Ed Smith and I analyze and discuss. If the Tigers lose, will we rip on manager Brad Ausmus again? Or is this a different story? If they win, we won't worry about it.
We also talk about Caleb Swanigan's decommitment from the Michigan State Spartans Men's Basketball team and head coach Tom Izzo's "Whoop That Trick" Towel showing support for a couple former Spartans in the NBA playing in the NBA Playoffs.
Plus, the Lions sign veteran wide receiver Lance Moore, a 2016 guard named Tyus Battle has committed to the Michigan Wolverines Men’s basketball team, who has also added 2015 forward Brent Hibbits and lost Max Bielfeldt to decommitment, and the U-M Football program has dismissed wide receiver Dennis Norfleet.
The Tigers and Minnesota Twins play the middle game of the 3-game series at Comerica Park with Kyle Lobstein and Ricky Nolasco on the mound, as the race in the American League Central Division standings keeps heating up in the middle of May.
The Grand Rapids Griffins take a 2-0 series lead to Rockford and take on the Icehogs in Game 3 of the AHL Western Conference Semifinals in the 2015 Calder Cup Playoffs. They have yet to win a playoff game on the road. Did they win one on the road tonight?
The Lions work out safety Glover Quin's option to clear $2.17 million in cap space, sign 2nd-round draft pick Ameer Abdullah to a 4-year, $4.16 million deal, and sign former Chiefs cornerback Chris Owens and former Jets wide receiver Greg Salas to 1-year deals. Plus, Stephen Tulloch is getting better and ready to play in terms of his health.
Michigan Wolverines Football cornerback Blake Countess will transfer for his final season of eligibility after graduating from the university, Dennis Norfleet was NOT dismissed from the Football program; he was suspended, and assistant athletic director Jim Minick was suspended indefinitely for his DUI charge. Their Men's Basketball team will take on the North Carolina State Wolfpack in the upcoming season's Big Ten/ACC Challenge, and former Wolverine Chris Webber has problems with the Fab 5 documentary.
The Michigan State Spartans Football team lands 3-star defensive back Demetric Vance, while their Men's Basketball team is assigned to face the Louisville Cardinals in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

The Red Wings are still hanging on to that 3rd place spot in the Atlantic Division after beating the St. Louis Blues in overtime 2-1 at Joe Louis Arena. Plus why AHL teams should not play 3 consecutive games.
I'll also tell you why the Pistons don't need a lottery draft pick.
The Michigan State Spartans may make a long run, but can they go all the way?
The Central Michigan Chippewas deserved to have an NCAA Tournament berth, but then again they didn't earn it.
Tigers Spring Training: Victor Martinez and Miguel Cabrera made their debut by surprise. V-Mart went hitless, and Miggy went 1 for 3. They're only getting warmed up.
The coaching carousels in both college football and basketball have finally come to a close. So, what are the best jobs? Plus, which programs are turning the corner in recruiting and setting up to emerge nationally in the coming years? We'll have that all that and more debate on this week's podcast. Listeners are welcome to call for questions and discussion.
