Tigers, Red Wings owner and pizza titan Mike Ilitch dead at 87

Owners who try to win should be applauded. It’s a shame the team couldn’t give him a championship before he died.

Condolences to his family and friends.

Mike Ilitch, one of the most famous Detroiters of his time, died today at the age of 87, according to his company, Ilitch Holdings. His family will honor him at a private funeral service.

Juliano: Should Baseball Union Be Happy With the Status Quo?

Most in the baseball media have declared management as the winner in the sport’s latest round of labor negotiations. Over the last two days, I’ve portrayed the outcome as a split decision by illustrating how the new CBA will do little to change the prevailing trends in the game. But, that begs the question: is the status quo good for the players?
