The Knee Jerks - Eno and Big Al - Underachiever for underachiever

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:

GM Steve Yzerman makes Al eat his words about a quiet Red Wings trade deadline, dealing Anthony Mantha to the Capitals for a first-round pick in 2021, a second-round pick in 2022 and forwards Jakub Vrana and Richard Panik in a blockbuster trade

Varna has much the same rep as Mantha - very skilled, but also an underachiever with a tendency to disappear for long stretches 

According to media reports. Yzerman had three untouchable players - top prospects Moritz Seider and Lucas Raymond, along with captain Dylan Larkin  

NBC Sports is reporting, "Steve Yzerman and Jeff Blashill are having good conversations" about a new contract, A lame duck with a bad W/L record, Blashill has no leverage. The Red Wings can give him a take it or leave it offer. The fan base would prefer "leave it"

The true Detroit Tigers showed up during a roller coaster 3-7 road trip, which featured nothing but series sweeps - a team with solid starting pitching, but little offense, a bad bullpen and questionable defense

As expected, Akil Baddoo returned to earth after a scorching start. He was completely clueless at the plate in Oakland - 0-11 with 8 K. His K rate is  now a brutal 40% and his OPS vs left hand pitching is .000. It's now up to the Tigers' coaching staff top settle Baddoo down and keep him from losing confidence

It's now safe to say Detroit Pistons' GM Troy Weaver hit a home run in the 2020 NBA Draft, as Killian Hayes, Isaiah Stewart, and Saddiq Bey are proving themselves to be rotation building blocks. They will be the satellites circling a yet to be found superstar 

Greg rails against Jeffery Loria and his clown show Miami Marlins. Al calls out the hosts on 97.1 the Ticket, who were again exposed when the Red Wings traded Mantha, showing they are extremely ill equipped to talk about anything but football
