Detroit Tigers, Brad Ausmus, Tigers Pitching, Matt Boyd, Brian Calloway, Lansing State Journal Awards Ceremony, Brian Calloway, and Kimbo Slice Tribute.

A good dispute breaks out today on WKAR's Current Sports. It's been an "incredible" turnaround for the Detroit Tigers, but has it been an "incredible" job by manager Brad Ausmus to help his team to a five-game winning streak? Al and engineer Isaac Constans joust on opposing sides of that question, as callers pretty evenly divvy up their support.  After weighing in on the Tigers feud, guest for the day Brian Calloway, of the Lansing State Journal, joins the show to describe the LSJ annual high school awards ceremony and what speaker Kirk Cousins, former Michigan State quarterback, brought to the event. Finally, Al tones things down to tribute Kimbo Slice, the famed fighter who died at age 42.
