Mike Valenti joins Stoney and Riger to talk about the lack of stars in Detroit sports, the importance of tanking to get them, and his dog of the week in college football.

Valenti was blunt on how Lions should approach the rest of the season.

“It’s malfeasance if they win one of these last games. They have a legitimate shot to get Chase Young.”

The conversation soon turned to a team currently in the dog days of a rebuild, the Tigers. Though they do have pitchers Matt Manning and Case Mize in the system, Mike was cautionary about the team’s lack of positional prospects.

“Anyone involved with baseball knows the volatility of pitching prospects is infinitely higher than positional players.”

With the Army-Navy game being the only scheduled college football game this week, Mike went with Army to cover the spread.
