VIDEO: Austin Hatch Hits a Free Throw in Michigan’s First Exhibition

The Michigan Wolverines have just one exhibition game under their belts (an 86-43 win over Wayne State), but they’ll have a hard time topping the highlight that outing produced.

Detroit Tigers Rumors: Could Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier or Carl Crawford Be in Play?

Austin Jackson’s still in Seattle, Andy Dirks was claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays and Torii Hunter appears headed out the door. So, unless the Detroit Tigers are banking on Tyler Collins and/or Steven Moya playing huge roles next season (and some would argue they should), GM Dave Dombrowski needs to find at least one starter in the outfield.

And, hey, whaddya know? The Dodgers reportedly are shopping three.

GIF: Joique Bell Steamrolls Cortland Finnegan

Sunday’s Detroit Lions win over the Miami Dolphins was a hard-fought, physical victory.

Perhaps no play better summed up the outcome than Joique Bell flattening Miami cornerback Cortland Finnegan on a tackle attempt. Bell, who finished with 81 total yards from scrimmage, turned up the sideline and saw Finnegan standing in his way.

GIF: Brandon Jennings Misses Last-Second Shot, Pistons Lose to the Jazz

Brandon Jennings scored 23 points on Sunday, but he missed a couple of key shots down the stretch in a 97-96 loss to the Utah Jazz.

The Pistons put the ball in Jennings hands in the closing seconds, giving their point guard a chance to win it at the buzzer. But his floater from the top of the lane never had much of a chance — it clanked off the back of the rim, sealing Detroit’s fate. Continue reading

VIDEO: Gustav Nyquist Scores Another Highlight-Reel Goal

Gustav Nyquist helped the Detroit Red Wings earn a point on Sunday against Tampa Bay, his thrilling third-period goal enough to tie the game at 3-3. The Wings would wind up losing — as they always do — in a shootout.

But the one-point outcome does not take anything away from Nyquist’s latest brilliance:

Detroit Tigers Rumors: Tyler Clippard ‘Would Be Perfect’ Trade Fit for the Bullpen

MLB free agency is underway, but that does not mean that Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski would pass on a trade if one came along. We’ve seen more than enough aggressive moves from Dombrowski now to know that he is constantly working the phones.

And FOX’s Ken Rosenthal offers up a possible target: Washington reliever Tyler Clippard.

The Nats are deep in young relievers, though they would need to find a closer if they did not trust Drew Storen in that role. Clippard’s projected arbitration number of $9.3 million is high for a setup man. He would be a perfect [fit] for a team in need of late-inning help — a team such as the Tigers.

From the Spartan Sideline, Buckeye Edition: Ohio State vs. Michigan State Preview

Michigan-State-Spartans-Logo-jpgAfter a week to rest their bones following a hard-hitting affair against the Michigan Wolverines, the Michigan State Spartans get back to work this week in East Lansing.

And the task posed by the road team is stiff. Who’s waiting for the Spartans? Nobody in particular, except for a revenge-minded Ohio State Buckeyes squad, still smarting from last year’s meeting in December that ended their national title dreams.

This season’s match-up likely serves as an elimination game for the college football playoff. The winner could have an inside track to hanging around the discussion, while the loser is likely on the outside looking in for the rest of the year. Who’s got the edge? Spartan Sideline is back to explain. Continue reading
