Chris McCosky The Detroit News Published 10:29 PM EDT Sep 17, 2018 Detroit — The two veteran starting pitchers the Tigers hoped would anchor their rotation — Michael Fulmer and Jordan Zimmermann — have combined to make 47 starts this season. They are 10-20 in those starts personally, while the Tigers are 15-32. Extreme failure to launch there. Both had month-long stints on the disabled list. Both showed flashes of top-of-the-rotation form, but no sustained consistency. Both fell well short of their own, and certainly the Tigers’, expectations. Fulmer’s season is likely over after an MRI Monday showed meniscus damage in his right knee. And Zimmermann did not survive the fourth inning Monday in the Tigers’ 6-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins in the first game of the final home stand of the season at Comerica Park. BOX SCORE: Twins 6, Tigers 1 He gave up a first-inning home run to Eddie Rosario and then was chased after a four-run, five-hit barrage … [Read more...] about Zimmermann, Tigers can’t overcome Twins 4-run uprising
In case you have somehow missed BMW’s marketing storm last year, a staggering 40 years have passed since the 3 Series was first introduced in 1975. In the intervening years, Munich’s iconic sports sedan – and the centre on which it has built its reputation as the maker of the Ultimate Driving Machine – has become the benchmark, the yardstick on which all compact premium sedans have been measured. The sixth and latest generation, the F30, started out life pretty much the same way. When we first tested the car in Barcelona all the way back in 2012, we praised it for its fleetness of foot and an impeccable ride and handling balance. “Back to the top of the heap,” “the balance of power has very much shifted back to Munich” and “the king is dead, long live the king” were just some of the things we said about it. But the past four years have shown why a king should never rest on his laurels. The first part of a one-two punch came … [Read more...] about DRIVEN: 2016 BMW 330i F30 LCI – can the best still keep up?
CIRCUIT DU CHATEAU DE LASTOURS, France — The road ahead is unpaved, rock-strewn and rut-rich. Deep puddles blast murky water across the windshield. Colossal three-blade windmills tower overhead, perilously sprouting like whitewashed redwoods at the outer edges of corners. The urge is to play it safe, to tackle this rally proving ground with the sort of caution you'd normally take off road. But, this is the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, and to dawdle would be to miss out on the massive capabilities it possesses, which the majority of its buyers will waste on cart-strewn acres of posh parking lots. So, the foot goes to the floor, the twin side pipes of this Mercedes-AMG G 63 rumble and bark, and we're doing 45 mph. If you're not Sébastien Loeb, driving along seemingly 9 feet in the air while careening across rocks, 45 is damned fast. From the passenger seat, it feels like a ride, which suddenly makes the decision to keep the old G-Wagen's dash-mounted grab handle a sensibly … [Read more...] about 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class First Drive Review

The College Board pegs the average annual cost, over all, at in-state institutions at $25,290. If your student is turning the tassel this spring, congratulations. Your checkbook deserves a well-earned breather. It might have to endure one last flogging, though. Should that sheepskin result in a job (and let’s hope so!) a vehicle may be needed. Or maybe you have a high school graduate who will be commuting to college, or one diving straight into the working world. Sending them off with a solid automobile is a terrific — albeit extravagant — graduation gift. Even if it’s simply a hefty down payment to get them … [Read more...] about Cars That Will Get Your Grad Down the Road of Life
