FIRE TROY WEAVER?

After a month's hiatus due to Al's travels,  Eno and Big Al are back spewing HAWT TAEKS on a new episode of The Knee Jerks Podcast. It's good to be back, and we very much appreciate your patience with our sometimes irregular schedule.

Speaking of hot takes,we welcome back NBA Stats Guru Siddy Hall, who puts Pistons GM Troy Weaver on BLAST. Siddy comes in smoking hot, believing Dwane Casey should remain as head coach instead of being moved to the front office, while calling out an uninspiring coaching search with no obvious home run hire. We also take a deep dive into Weavers' roster and salary cap management, trades which have gone sideways, and the good and bad of Weaver's drafts.

Siddy also give us his thoughts on what has been a fun first round of the NBA Playoffs.

In the second half of the show, our topics include:

It was a week where the Tigers' botching weather postponements made more news than the team's performance.

For the second time in less than a year, Austin Meadows was placed on the IL due to his mental health. To no one's surprise, a very vocal minority of the Tigers' fan base made complete asses of themselves over what is a serious issue.

The Tigers' penchant for boneheaded base running resulted in AJ Hinch pulling Javy Baez from the lineup mid-game. The Tigers proceeded to rip off a 5 game winning streak post pull, so let the comparisons to Jim Leyland's legendary 2006 clubhouse rant ensue.

The Lions' Jeff Okuda era ended with a whimper. The team cut bait, as the former 3rd overall selection was shipped to the Falcons for a 5th round draft pick.

Four years into GM Steve Yzerman’s rebuild of the Red Wings, the Captain says, “It’s gone OK.” Blunt, but accurate.

The Red Wings are at a crossroads. They are not bad enough to have a legit shot at top lottery pick, but not good enough to earn playoff 8 seed. They are in desperate need of a couple of impact scoring wingers and an elite goalie. But who is going to trade that kind of talent for picks? And it's nigh impossible to find that sort of player with the 9th and 18th overall selections in the draft.

We also play the Birthday Game and name our respective Jerk of the Week!
