Detroit Tigers injury update: Plan in place for Victor Martinez; Bruce Rondon set to throw bullpen

Detroit Tigers injury update: Plan in place for Victor Martinez; Bruce Rondon set to throw bullpen

Martinez, a switch hitter, is affected much more when he bats left-handed since the left knee carries the majority of the load when he hits from that side of the plate. DETROIT -- Victor Martinez was in the starting lineup Monday night, which means he is not heading to the disabled list. But the Detroit Tigers have weighed that option -- and basically every other possible option -- according to manager Brad Ausmus. "We've considered everything," Ausmus said when asked specifically about the possibility of a DL stint. "We've considered all the possibilities....

Lionel Hollins: "We're going to try to get Brook more shots"

After the Nets lost in Game 1, and both pundits and fans wondered why Brook Lopez took only, seven shots (making six), there was a lot of talk about feeding the beast in Game 2. "We're going to try to get Brook more shots, but that's the game of cat-and-mouse," Lionel Hollins said after a three-hour long practice and video session. But he said little else and was, as Stefan Bondy put it, "understandably coy" about details. Both Deron Williams and Joe Johnson admitted they need to do better. Following the Nets 99-91 loss, there was a lot of second guessing, led by Isiah Thomas and Rick...

Detroit Tigers' Brad Ausmus explains decision not to replace Victor Martinez with pinch runner late in tie game

Detroit Tigers' Brad Ausmus explains decision not to replace Victor Martinez with pinch runner late in tie game

Ausmus said it was simply too early and Martinez is simply too good offensively to make that move then. DETROIT -- Victor Martinez represented the go-ahead run when he stood at second base with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Detroit Tigers did not have a runner reach second base in the first six innings Monday night in what turned out to be a 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees. Left-hander CC Sabathia was being especially stingy, so Martinez represented a huge run for the Tigers. Martinez is battling a left knee issue, so why did Tigers...

Bucks vs. Bulls: Milwaukee fails to capitalize on sluggish, physical battle in Game 2

Midwest tempers flared in Game 2. Jimmy Butler was once just a key piece for the Chicago Bulls, but an intensifying fourth quarter stretch further proved he's much, much more than that. If you think otherwise, look no further than Butler's key 14 points in the fourth quarter and 31 for the game on Monday in the Windy City that gave the Bulls a 2-0 series lead over the Milwaukee Bucks. A Game 2 in Chicago that included two physical scuffles, a Zaza Pachulia ejection and an ugly early shooting portion leaned in the Bulls' favor charged by Butler as they now have the opportunity to go up 3-0...

Wilderness Walk: Cry Baby Edition

The Wild really took it to the Blues last night, dominating the game in pretty much every metric and facet imaginable. Despite Ott doing Ott things and Backes doing... well... Ott things, the Wild kept their cool, took Tony's advice, and gave the Blues the Blues (last one I promise). The Wild will look to take a 3-1 lead tomorrow, but for today, let's walk.

How the Mavericks can fix the problem of Dirk Nowitzki's defense

The Mavericks star was exposed like crazy against the Rockets during their Game 1 loss on Saturday night. It's time for Dallas to try and adjust for Game 2. Let's get this out of the way -- there were a ton of problems with the Mavericks Saturday night in their loss to the Houston Rockets in Game 1 of their first round series. Monta Ellis went bye-bye, Rajon Rondo had one great quarter and three bad ones and Devin Harris and Chandler Parsons both looked too hobbled. Hal Brown tried his best to round up most of the problems the other night. But this is a big one -- Dirk Nowitzki got...
