Ron Gardenhire reveals Detroit Tigers starting catcher for 2019 season

When the Detroit Tigers decided to part ways with James McCann, the question was, who would be the starting catcher in 2019?

Well, according to Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire, the decision has pretty much been made that Grayson Greiner will be the No. 1 catcher this coming season.

Greiner, who is 26, played 30 games for the Tigers in 2018, hitting .219 with no home runs and 12 RBIs.

As it stands, Greiner will be backed up by John Hicks, who will also get some time at first base.

Breaking down the Detroit Lions playoff chances and why they WILL get in

Ok, I know this is a BOLD prediction but I believe the Detroit Lions will somehow, someway squeeze their way into the NFL Playoffs.

With their win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, the Lions moved to 5-8 and kept their slim playoff hopes alive.

In fact, following the Minnesota Vikings loss the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football, those hopes actually improved as the Lions playoff chances, according to FiveThirtyEight, went from 1% to 3%!

You are probably thinking one of two things right now. 1) This guy is a complete clown if he believes the Lions are going to make the playoffs, I am not reading any more of his BS or 2) I may as well see what this clown has to say since he took the time to write it out.

Well, my hope is that you are still reading because I am about to tell you exactly why I believe the Lions WILL make the NFL Playoffs.

Lions chances…in a vacuum

Believe it or not, the Lions could find themselves in the playoffs even if they lose one of their remaining three games but the chances of that are VERY SLIM. So, my focus in this piece will be predicated on them winning out and letting the chips fall where they may.

First, let’s look at how the Lions playoff chances increase (in a vacuum) with them winning each of their remaining three games.

*Note: This does not take into account what other teams in the league do, we will look at that later. Also, I am not going to get into tie games because all of our heads would explode.
