The Knee Jerks - Eno and Big Al


May 5, 2021

Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! Along with the Birthday Game and the Jerk of the Week, this week's topics include:

Since the mid-April sweep of the Astros, the Tigers are a dismal 2-15 with both the worst offense and overall record in MLB

There is not a single bat on the current roster remotely capable of carrying the Tigers' offense

Fans are upset with the lack of progress in the rebuild, quickly losing patience with GM Al Avila 

Not one prospect in the Justin Verlander trade has panned out, kneecapping the Tigers' rebuild

We live in strange times, as the Pistons and Magic held a tankathon, where neither fan base wanted a victory

The rules of today's NBA essentially forces teams into tanking

Draft lotteries are a cure worse than what originally ailed pro sports

The Lions' front office picked a draft strategy of best player available, regardless of position, receiving high grades from the pundits 

Not replacing Jared Goff at QB with Justin Fields was the correct move

Greg rails against the NHL for slapping the hand of  Capitals  goon Tom Wilson, who should have been thrown out of hockey for committing aggravated assault on the ice. Al calls out Roberto Alomar's  attempt at gaslighting, as the sexual harassment claim against him must have been heinous for baseball to cut ties with him so quickly. MLB isn't off the hook, as they have yet to do anything about Angels coach Mickey Callaway, who has left a long paper trail of sexual harassment around the league
