COVID slowing MLB play, NBA, NHL and PGA roll on

Fat Guy Corner

The Tigers First Place stay was a short one as predicted. The Tigers, after Sunday’s double header loss to the Cincinnati Reds, leaves their record at five hundred. The 5-5 start is pretty impressive for a team expected to lose often in 2020. I had the Tigers at around 2-8 or 3-7 after 10 games in 2020 The Tigers and […]

Play ball! Tigers open strange season; Lions and NFL testing and training

Fat Guy Corner

The month of July is winding down and we will head into August. This is normally the time baseball season settles into the dog days of summer. The year 2020 has changed that as baseball has just played its first weekend of baseball. I want to say numerous story lines emerged over the weekend with COVID-19 taking center stage. We […]

The return of Tigers baseball and Tiger Woods

Fat Guy Corner

The MLB baseball season for the World Series bound Detroit Tigers opens up Friday in Cincinnati. Let’s be totally honest, the Tigers are not going to the World Series in 2020, we all know that. Actually, the boys in Las Vegas have set the Tigers season win total at 21.5 games. The season will be 60 games and if you […]

Workday Charity Open win, a name change and what’s ahead for college football

Fat Guy Corner

The golf finish at the Workday Charity Open was one of the best finishes I have seen in a long time. The match went through a three-hole playoff before Collin Morikawa snatched an improbable victory from Justin Thomas. I say improbable, because Collin was three shots behind Justin with three holes to play. I have to admit when Thomas made […]

NFL news, hockey draft picks and baseball’s return

Fat Guy Corner

The NFL has a couple of stories this week and one involves the “Motor City Kitties.” I will start with the non-Lions story first. The New England Patriots have come to terms with Cam “The Scam” Newton on a one year deal worth $7.5 million. The ex-Carolina Panther quarterback has been on the market since March when he was released. […]

The favorite wins at Belmont, more on MLB, NHL and golf

Fat Guy Corner

The Belmont Stakes winner was the favorite, Tiz the Law. My hunch on Modernist did not pan out so my pocketbook is a little lighter. Oh well, you know the saying “A gambler’s money has no home!” Tiz the Law came flying down the lane to pass Tap It to Win to win by three and three quarter lengths. Tap […]

Golf and horse racing return as questions continue for NBA and MLB

Fat Guy Corner

The PGA returned this week at the Charles Schwab Challenge. How nice was it to have live sports back? I say real nice! I know Daniel Berger was happy to see golf back. Daniel Berger made birdie on No. 18 to get himself to fifteen under, which allowed him to win the tournament in a playoff. The playoff win came […]

The NBA is set to return, other sports still up in the air

The NBA will return on July 31 and NBA games will resume then. I want to breakdown — to the best of my abilities — how it’s going to work. There are a lot of moving parts to the restart of the NBA season similar to my golf swing. First of all, 22 teams will partake in the conclusion of […]

Will baseball or basketball return first? A successful golf match and NASCAR wins

Fat Guy Corner

The sports world remains pretty much quiet, and what happens in the future is pure speculation. There are four major sports leagues and baseball seems to be the closest to starting up. The MLBPA has submitted a proposal of a 114 game schedule to the owners of MLB. The proposal features deferred salaries and the option for players to opt […]
