The Knee Jerks - Eno and Big Al - Red Wings post mortem, Pistons backing into the playoffs

Long time Detroit podcasters and bloggers Greg Eno and Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks!

The episode is a Detroit Lions-free zone as Greg and Big Al cover the end of the Detroit Red Wings 2018-19 season, the Detroit Pistons doing their damnedest to squander a playoff berth but somehow still have a magic number of 1 with 2 to play and the Detroit Tigers' pitching carrying them to a 7-3 start to the MLB season. 

Along with playing the birthday game and naming the Jerks of the Week, topics include: 

The Red Wings wrap up the season with the fourth worst record in the NHL. But they showed signs of life, ending the season with 8 wins in their last 11 games on the back of their young players.

heir Lose for Hughes draft lottery odds took a slight hit, but there appears to be a core of Larkin, Athanasiou, Mantha and Bertuzzi to build around. 

Head coach Jeff Blashill received his long rumored contract extension, but at just 2 years, the deal won't be so onerous to keep the franchise from to moving on from him (or GM Ken Holland) if things go sideways next season.

The New York Post claims Steve Yzerman is willing to be "wooed" to take over as President of the New York Rangers. There's not much to the story, but it does seem to confirm that the soon to be executive free agent is not looking to be a GM ala Holland, but rather take over an entire organization. 

The playoffs are no longer a given for the badly slumping Pistons.. They have dropped from a seemingly solid 6 seed to barely hanging on to the 8 seed by the skin of their teeth and the will of an obviously injured Blake Griffin. 

But with a magic number of 1, the Pistons are likely going to back in to the postseason...only to become 1st round fodder for the Milwaukee Bucks, who own the best overall record in the NBA.

The Tigers pitching staff is 2nd overall in MLB, and has carried them to a 7-3 record and 1st place in the Central. Their pitching won't remain this good, but it should remain average. Which is more than you can say the Tigers' God awful, powerless offense. 

Starter Mike Moore suffered a knee injury, putting him on the IL. More importantly, the injury gives Daniel Norris, once believed to be a sure-fire top of the rotation starter as a prospect, his last, best chance to stick in the rotation before the new wave of prospects reach the big leagues.
