The Detroit Red Wings won their Game 7 matchup? Why? Well my answer on WLIE yesterday was Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen for starters. They’ve been there. Even Justin Abdelkader who scored the game winner was a “black ace” when the Wings last won their Cup in ‘08-09. He got that experience watching from the sidelines, practicing and traveling with the team, talking to the players and coaches, at least that’s what he told me while his teammates were hoisting the Cup.

Last night at Progressive Field A’s Manager, Bob Melvin got tossed because he KNEW his player hit a homer yet it was called a double before and after video replay. As a matter of fact the video at home, when highlighted, showed the ball hitting off the railing for a dinger. It was definitive, it was a goner, and the A’s lost the game to the Indians 4-3. Even Indians fans couldn’t be thrilled winning a game that way. Well maybe some.
