08:52 AM ET 09.03 | And now for the Gordie Howe of baseball ... OK, it's not quite that dramatic. But Howard Johnson, a member of your 1984 Tigers champions, and his son, Glen, are about to play together in a pair of minor league baseball games in Ramapo, N.Y. The Rockland Boulders of the Can-Am League signed the pair for a home stand Sunday and Monday. Howard, 50, also won a World Series with the New York Mets in 1986.

I expected better out of Danks. The De Aza drop really set a bad tone for the game. The Tigers' radio announcers dubbed it an "ambush." You guys will have a better chance tonight again Penny.
