Gave: With everything on the line, nobody better than Hasek

Now that Dominik Hasek is safely enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame, can we talk about his place among the all-time great goaltenders in the game? To be sure, there is a Greatest Generation of fans who watched Terry Sawchuk (No. 1 up in the rafters at Joe Louis Arena) as nearly impenetrable for those Red Wings Stanley Cup teams in the 1950s. Others might argue for Patrick Roy,...

Tigers exercise Avila's $5.4 million option

DETROIT (AP) -- Alex Avila's $5.4 million option for 2015 has been exercised by the Detroit Tigers. Avila, who turns 28 in January, hit .218 with 11 home runs and 47 RBIs last season, although concussion problems have become a concern over the last couple years. Detroit would have owed him a $200,000 buyout if it had declined the option. In 2014, Avila fell 43 plate appearances...

Bizarre ruling and lack of clutch hitting doom Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Say what you will about bad bounces or bad breaks or even bad umpiring that might have cost the Royals, the truth is the Detroit Tigers simply hit better when it matters these days. The Tigers proved that again in a 3-2 win Saturday at Kauffman Stadium over the Royals, a crushing loss that put a huge dent in the Royals' hopes of winning the AL Central. The...

Notes: Offseason helps Jimmy Howard enter training camp at his 'best' in years

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Jimmy Howard chuckled while remembering his posture towards the end of last season. "If you see me walking around in February or March my knees are inward, my shoulders are forward," Howard said. When he wasn't spending time with his wife and two young sons this summer, Howard was focusing on getting his shoulders and hips back into place by...

Injuries, mistakes already mounting for Lions

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- It's hard to say what Jim Caldwell's biggest concern should be following his first loss as coach of the Detroit Lions. Turnovers? After an impressive season opener, the Lions reverted to old habits, losing two fumbles and an interception in last weekend's loss to Carolina. Missed field goals? Rookie Nate Freese had two, which cost Detroit points...

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan traveled to South Bend with a chance to make a resounding statement on a national stage. Instead, the Wolverines are again searching for answers. Coach Brady Hoke found some positives in Saturday's loss, but there weren't many in the 31-0 defeat -- Michigan's most lopsided of his four seasons at the helm. "We did some things very...

Tigers say no decision made on offseason surgery for Miguel Cabrera

DETROIT -- Everyone has watched Miguel Cabrera deal with a right ankle injury this season. It bothers him most when he has to run the bases, much less so on defense. ESPN's Buster Olney reported before Sunday night's game that Cabrera has bone spurs in his ankle and would need surgery during the offseason. The Tigers did not deny that Cabrera might have bone spurs, but did...

Will Lions' offensive line pick up where it left off last season?

Nothing has changed more with the Detroit Lions over the last year than the perception of the offensive line. A year ago at this time, there was serious concern with an unproven second-year player taking over at left tackle on the quarterback's blind side, a center who some thought was too old and needed to be replaced, not to mention a rookie moving in at right guard. That group...
