Chris Solari Detroit Free Press Published 6:42 PM EST Dec 29, 2018 SAN FRANCISCO — Dimitri Douglas has yet to play in a college football game. But he and a number of other young Michigan State players learned a valuable lesson in teamwork and giving back. About 30 Spartans and football staff members served meals and bussed trays at St. Anthony’s Dining Room on Saturday morning as they took a break from preparing for Monday's Redbox Bowl against Oregon. The assembly line approach to helping the community resonated. “You have your different positions, you gotta execute your job to the best you can do,” said Douglas, a freshman offensive lineman from Saline. “I mean, it’s just a team thing. It’s a team responsibility. And all the people who do work here did a great job of explaining everything to us and helping us out along the way.” More: How well do you know your Michigan State bowl game history?

Chris McCosky The Detroit News Published 3:06 PM EST Dec 10, 2018 Las Vegas — The big-league indoctrination for outfielder Mike Gerber could not have gone worse last season. He struck out 21 times and managed just four hits in 47 plate appearances in 18 games with the Tigers. It was, to say the least, an uncharacteristic struggle. In five minor-league seasons, Gerber had hit .279, with a .346 on-base percentage, slugging .468 with an OPS of .814. None of that translated for him to the big leagues last season. The Tigers took him off the 40-man roster last Thursday and placed him on waivers, which was required ahead of the Rule 5 draft. But his minor-league track record did not go unnoticed. On Monday, Gerber was claimed off waivers by the San Francisco Giants. It’s a much-needed fresh start and a strong opportunity for Gerber. The Giants, at present, don’t have a lot of organizational depth in the outfield. In fact, at 26 years old, Gerber is the oldest … [Read more...] about Detroit Tigers lose OF Mike Gerber off waivers to San Francisco Giants
Justin Rogers The Detroit News Published 6:41 AM EDT Sep 17, 2018 Santa Clara – Eli Harold’s authenticity resonates. It resonates during his interviews, with a media sick and tired of wading through cliches, and it resonates with his Detroit Lions teammates, who have quickly gained an appreciation for the fourth-year linebacker. In a eerily quiet, somber locker room, following the Lions’ 30-27 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, one of those teammates leaned over and said to another, "Man, it sucks we couldn’t get this one for Eli." Harold came to Detroit last month after three years in San Francisco, traded in the middle of training camp when it was clear the 49ers were no longer invested in his development. The Lions were intrigued with his potential -- the way his athleticism and length fit coach Matt Patricia's scheme -- and felt the price tag, a seventh-round pick, was too good to pass up.

Andrew Collins and David Tracy are winding their way north from Los Angeles to San Francisco, and they’re borrowing David Hasselhoff’s ride from the television show Knight Rider, KITT. They’re on their way to Radwood NorCal, but they’re taking the scenic route and will be stopping for a few choice photo ops and live video. If you aren’t already following @jalopnik on Instagram, make sure you do so you can see all of the KITT action. Current Collins report indicates that there are “No issues so far, except for the fact that it’s pretty slow, and driving with the yoke is very, very odd.” That sure doesn’t look very easy to drive. If you can’t make it to Radwood tomorrow, you can get a feel for what it’s like by following their path on Instagram. … [Read more...] about You Can Follow KITT From LA To San Francisco On Jalopnik’s Instagram
It feels like Radwood, the car show that gloriously celebrates the angular, analog and awesome cars of the 1980s and ‘90s, has been a part of our collective modern car culture forever. But it hasn’t! The show’s only a year old. Now, after making a huge, neon splash in 2017, the show is coming home at the end of this month, and if you’re in Bay Area you should definitely go. Our good friends at the Cammed & Tubbed Podcast, Clutchkick Podcast and Driving While Awesome! are throwing another show at Oyster Point in South San Francisco on June 24 for period-correct cars, trucks and motorcycles, and just like the event in Anaheim we teamed up with them on last fall, it is gonna be one hell of a party. Radwood is what car shows should be. It’s fun, it’s goofy, it’s collaborative and celebrates everything interesting and wonderful about the cars many of us grew up with. There’s none of the stuck-up rich dude assholery you find at so many … [Read more...] about Radwood Is Back And It’s Coming To San Francisco On June 24. Are You Rad Enough To Go?
