Al Avila is no longer the General Manager of the Tigers. Owner Chris Illitch spoke about the decision to move on from their long time GM after 7 years at the helm. Illitch says that he'll begin an exhaustive search for their new front office leader and use every contact that he has in the industry to find the right person for the job.

On the field the Tigers came up just short again vs Cleveland, a 3-2 loss at home as the pitching staff shut down the Guardians for 7 innings, but couldn't push the final runs across to come back from a 3-0 deficit early.

Matthew Stafford gave Lions rookie Jameson Williams his blessing to take his old number after the young wideout reached out to him via text. Williams will wear No.9 after switching from his initial No. 18.

And Michigan basketball released their official roster ahead of the upcoming season and head coach Juwan Howard set to speak with the media later today.
