The Knee Jerks: Highlights from Last Night's Broadcast

Greg Eno@@GregEnoSenior Analyst IMay 19, 2009

Last night was the second LIVE episode of “The Knee Jerks” on Blog Talk Radio, my weekly broadcast with Big Al of The Wayne Fontes Experience.

In case you missed it, here are some highlights culled from last night’s episode:

On Tigers Manager Jim Leyland and his contract situation:

Eno: He says he’s had two good years and one bad one. No, Jim, you’ve had three bad second halves in a row.

Big Al: When he went public with [his contract situation] last fall, he couldn’t have mis-read that situation any more than he did. He was in NO position to ask for a contract extension.

On the Tigers’ rotation once Jeremy Bonderman returns from surgery in a couple weeks:

Eno: I think Armando Galarraga ought to be worried. I think he’s on the bubble.

Big Al: (on Dontrelle Willis) I’m not convinced that he can get big league hitters out.

On Red Wings-Blackhawks:

Eno: (on Marian Hossa/Pavel Datsyuk’s goal-scoring slumps) You can’t have EVERYONE going ALL the time, or else you’d win every game 9-2.

Big Al: If Johan Franzen is a playoff God, then Dan Cleary is playoff Jesus.

On Chris Osgood:

Eno: I wish all the Osgood haters would shove it. When the stakes are high, he plays his best. Period.

Big Al: You can make a case that Chris Osgood is a Hall of Fame goalie.
