Detroit Tigers Offseason Preview, Al Avila, PJ Fleck, Western Michigan Football, Big Ten Conference and Block-Charge Review.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" maybe it's a little bit too early to speculate on 2017 baseball, but some big news came out of the Detroit Tigers' clubhouse from general manager Al Avila. Al thinks the Tigers are starting the rebuild process, but where can they turn with the third-highest salary in the MLB? Al and engineer Isaac Constans throw out a few alternatives for this team to cut costs and remain relevant. Next up, the time has come to give some love to Michigan's second-best college football team, the Western Michigan Broncos. Even with all of the success this season, however, both Al and Isaac aren't sure if a dynasty is in the making. They predict the potential landing spots for WMU head coach PJ Fleck. Finally, Al and Isaac have a brief spat over whether it's a good idea to have a block-charge review system in the Big Ten.
