Why Buck Farmer 'can handle it all' out of the Detroit Tigers' bullpen

Doesn't matter if the Detroit Tigers manager is Ron Gardenhire, AJ Hinch or you.

Expect to see a lot of Buck Farmer trotting out of the bullpen this season.

Jack of all trades, master of none. In a nutshell, that is Detroit Tigers reliever Buck Farmer — music to manager AJ Hinch's ears.

Michigan basketball shows mark of great team: Winning with ease while not playing its best

It may have felt like a ho-hum win for Michigan Basketball on Thursday. But under the surface, we saw a few reasons to believe the Wolverines are a legitimate national championship contender, believe it or not, against Rutgers.

Michigan basketball pressed forward in Big Ten title race with Thursday's win over Rutgers by playing superb defense, even as offense sputtered.

AJ Hinch has a lot to consider if the Detroit Tigers decide against a five-man rotation. “The younger our rotation is, t...

Detroit Tigers' relievers will have defined roles but AJ Hinch wants them to be versatile

AJ Hinch has a lot to consider if the Detroit Tigers decide against a five-man rotation. “The younger our rotation is, the more that we are going to have to look at that extra reliever, that eight-man bullpen anyway, which could impact the position-player group.”

Detroit Tigers manager AJ Hinch promises he will name a closer, but that role could mean multiple innings. Also, hear from new Tiger Cale Coshow.

Detroit Lions: The Hex
A Michigan Poem November 19, 2020 Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? When we wore the M with pride, When we first saw those maize wings take the field, Back when we were choosing sides. Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? Back when running backs stood strong, With a hundred thousand on our side, When hopes weren't easily gone. Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? Can you still recall Lloyd Carr? Leading that last game against Florida, Along the sideline field afar. Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? When our quarterbacks went pro, When our corners played like Woodson, Is it something you still know? Remember when Michigan was Michigan? When the band would take the field, With a score that favours Michigan, Is it something you still feel? Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? With three hundred pound linesman? When we used to beat the buckeyes, When we used to pose for Heisman! Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? When NO season was too late, When even as the underdog, We knew we’d beat O-State. Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? When that wasn't just a dream? When we rolled into Columbus, And we played like Wolverines! Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? Back when we were really mean, Back when Michigan was Michigan, And it was The Team, The Team, The Team! Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? Or do you even care? Have you convinced yourself it matters not? Or do you watch, then sit and stare? Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? Is it difficult to cope? Do you still put on the maize and blue? Do you hold an ounce of hope? Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? Do you feel it's not too late? Do you remember still what Bo once said? Do you still revere the gate? Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? Are you still in awe of The Big House? Do you still revere the sacred field? Or is your heart of a mouse? Do you remember when Michigan was Michigan? And you let that feeling ride... Saying, “I won’t abandon Michigan, And I won’t forsake my pride, Because Michigan is Michigan, And as they all look down their noses, I know that we’re still Michigan, And will again play for the Roses. AIt was Michigan - Thirty Six And it was Ohio State - zero That was the score after our first-game in time, Now, here is the score from 1969, Back when Michigan was Michigan, and we will be once more, Ohio State - 12, Michigan - 24” Ben

Big 10 better play football. It's not about the money. It's about keeping the thugs from joining the other thugs looting and rioting.
