  • Then it’s Detroit’s own Craig Wolanin on coronavirus in the NHL AND his long career playing with/against some of the best ever!

  • College sports may be changing forever. Bob explains and tells of a bizarre suggestion by one of basketball’s top coaches.
  • Catch Episode 1 of ESPN’s “The Last Dance?” One thing the boys DO agree on: TEN episodes on the life of Michael Jordan?!
  • Everybody – but US – is filling space on TV/radio and the net with “best of” lists (yawn). We make this exception, though:
  • •DENNY is on CBS Sports’ list of the four greatest Tigers pitchers who ever lived! What if they’d had WHIP when HE pitched?
  • The Astros took their beating in the sign stealing scandal. Now the Sawx are front and center facing the same charges.

  • Eli defends his use, and his many mentions here, of (gasp!) marijuana.
  • Bob asks what the hell WARP, +ERA, fWAR, rWAR, & DRA- are? He does NOT get an answer.

  • Those stories, more baseball and — HOW much to renovate a HOUSE? — right here!
