The Knee Jerks - Eno and Big Al - Baddoo

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:

Tigers fans have a new cult hero in rookie Akil Baddoo.
It's far too soon to say if Baddoo is an All-Star caliber player or just riding a hot streak as the next Chris Shelton, but we sure are enjoying the ride.
There are signs the Tigers may have finally caught a break and found a Rule 5 diamond in the rough
The Tigers have become a better team, but they won't be a good one.  
Ron Gardenhire would say he was open to advanced metrics. AJ Hinch actually uses them
Going by his lineups and bullpen use, Hinch wasn't lying about wanting a roster with versatility and some positions to be run by committee
In response new voter suppression laws, MLB pulled the All-Star Game out of Atlanta. The move may not have been for completely altruistic reasons, but it was the correct decision
Cleaning up the salary cap mess left by Bob Quinn, new GM Brad Holmes allowed long time Lions Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, Matt Prater, Jamal Agnew, and Jarrad Davis to walk in free agency
The only major FA to re-sign is DE Romeo Okwara
The NFL gave lip service to player safety, steamrolling the weak NFL players union in order to chase TV money and add a 17th game. 
Don't expect the Red Wings top be very active at the trade deadline
Greg calls the Jets' trade of Sam Darnold a debacle, and if you take away Joe Namath's Super Bowl season, they are the Lions of the AFC.
Al rails against those who let their guard down with the pandemic finish line in sight, the idiots who still live in COVID-19 denial and teams like the Texas Rangers who threw caution completely to the wind, all as the Canucks and Nationals are waylaid by major virus outbreaks, another wave of COVID-19 rages in Michigan, the CDC is calling for indoor school sports in this state to be curtailed and hearing first-hand from medical professionals they are exhausted and fed up, .
