12:27 PM Mike valent: Mike Valenti
12:27 PM CBSDetroitModerator mod: Welcome everyone the chat with Mike Valenti has now begun
12:28 PM Mike valenti: god help me. Let’s go
12:29 PM Conor: Hiya Mike what’s goin on
12:30 PM Mike valenti: Ok, I’m here guys….let’s go.
12:30 PM Conor: Do you think Burnett is gonna make it past the 5th inning?
12:30 PM Mike valenti: No conor, I think burnett sucks and the tigers should shell him.
12:30 PM Sean: Series over right Mike? Texas vs Detroit?
12:30 PM Ryan: not a sports Q but Im new to the area and have a dillema. Im in charge of a party bus for a friends bachelor party. Any detrot or royal oak bars with hitting?
12:30 PM Mike valenti: Sean it;s done. enjoy the ALCS vs Texas
12:31 PM Sean: You don’t think Tampa has a shot? Good pitchers for the rays
12:31 PM Mike valenti: Ryan alot of good spots in royal Oak, hit several. Depends what type you want
12:31 PM Conor: I don’t understand why Gerardi was complaining about the strike zone, I thought it was fair. CC had a 6-0 with a 2.39 era going into that game with that same home plate umpire
12:31 PM Mike valenti: Sean I didnt say they didnt have a shot did I? I simply gave my picjk
12:31 PM Mike valenti: Because Girardi is a putz
12:31 PM Sean: oh okay. well do you see texas taking it today or in game five?
12:31 PM Mike valenti: Pulling a phil jackson
12:31 PM Conor: Do you think thats Gerardi just saying we were outplayed?
12:31 PM Mike valenti: I dont care what girardi was saying, he stinks.
12:32 PM Ken: hello Mike….
12:32 PM Sean: Girardi gave burnett the kiss of death by saying he was on a short leash
12:32 PM Sean: according to Colin Cowherd
12:33 PM Mike valenti: Sean he is always on short leash. Why does it matter? Guy is a mental midget and melts down.
12:33 PM Conor: Do you think that in the ALCS the pitchers are going to pitch Young differently considering he’s a first pitch hitter
12:33 PM Sean: Yeah but he has a good start every so often, its october, anything can happen
12:33 PM Nick D: how about those LIONS!! i’m from Dallas and listen to the station all the time, i just wanted to give a shout out and say I’m so happy all the Dallas fans here were shut up on Sunday
12:33 PM Sean: I guess I’m a pessimist
12:34 PM Mike valenti: Conor people have caught on. He;s just executing and raking
12:34 PM Ken: Am I crazy for thinng 11-5 for the lions for the lions and how do you REALLY feel about the MEEchigan Wolverines
12:34 PM Ken: thinking*
12:34 PM Conor: once MIchigan hits the big 10 I think it’ll be a different story a little bit
12:34 PM Mike valenti ban: No not crazy 11-5 becomes more realistic as we go along. Win Monday night and it certainly is buy time
12:35 PM Conor: I could see 8-4 at the end of the year
12:35 PM Mike valenti ban: Michigan could go 8-4 but the season starts now. Lets see how they react.
12:35 PM Ken ban: I feel you, who’s next for the tigers
12:35 PM Mike valenti ban: Could lose @NW @ Iowa @ILL @ MSU vs Neb very easily
12:36 PM Mike valenti ban: Rangers Ken, I cannot buy Tampa
12:36 PM Conor: Has there been any update on Justin Durant from anything you’ve heard? I heard he was maybe in for Sunday
12:36 PM Conor: Although Bobby Carpenter did a good job filling in
12:36 PM Conor: Monday I mean
12:37 PM Jason: Is Wisconsin really that much better than the rest of the Big 10?
12:38 PM SammyMac: Mike what do you expect from Porcello tonight?
12:38 PM Mike valenti ban: Yes they are. wisconsin is balanced. I fear them.
12:38 PM Mike valenti ban: Sammy I assume he will be ok tonight. Tex and Arod are $55 million in poop. Bunch of guys like Posada are rollover kings. I think Tigs close it out.
12:38 PM Jason: Any hope the Lions line gels? Are you have nightmares of Pepper too?
12:39 PM Ryan ban: Thanks for the heads up mike. I don’t want to bore or bog down your chat. I emailed you about the Roayl Oak bars. Any recommendations would be wonderful!
12:40 PM Michael ban: Do you think the bye week helps or hurts Spartans? Thoughts on Cousins’ play vs buckeyes?
12:40 PM Joey: You believe the curse of the SI cover?
12:40 PM Conor: What do you see for the Red Wings this season?
12:40 PM Mike valenti ban: helps mike, gel the line, two weeks to prepare for spread attack, I love it
12:41 PM Mike valenti ban: conor i see good not great, might5 not win division…might. they will be ok though.
12:41 PM Conor: I unfortunately sense another second round KO unless there’s some just amazing deadline pick-up
12:41 PM Conor: they have the scratch for it for once
12:42 PM Brian ban: If Persa plays on saturday against Michigan, does Northwestern become the runaway favorite in that game?
12:42 PM Scott ban: Mike, do you like NW at +7.5 against Michigan?
12:42 PM Mike valenti ban: No brian, no runaway favorites in most big 10 games, all teams not named Wisky pretty similar. I like NW to give Mich fits
12:42 PM Mike valenti ban: Yes Scott I do
12:43 PM Ken ban: AYe Mike, does the station have “sit ins” where we can see the basic run through of the show
12:43 PM Mike valenti ban: no ken we do not , thank god
12:43 PM Ken ban: lol
12:44 PM Justin ban: How long do think AJ will go tonight?
12:44 PM Conor: 5 innings max
12:44 PM Mike valenti ban: long enough to lose the game justin he sucks
12:44 PM Conor: I think he’s gonna get torched
12:45 PM Conor: I think Valverde needs to work on his follow through instead of his dance moves on the mound a little bit
12:45 PM Conor: Guy’s been a mess the first two games
12:45 PM Scott ban: So you think the Tigers will win the series tongiht?
12:45 PM Joey: Hasn’t blown anything though
12:45 PM Mike valenti ban: yes scott i do
12:45 PM Justin ban: He is a heart attack waiting to happen
12:46 PM Michael ban: Mike, what do you think chances are that Lions are undefeated come Thanksgiving?
12:46 PM Conor: Yeah but he can’t afford these 2 walk innings
12:46 PM Brian ban: Do you think the Rays are done tonight or do they send it back to Texas?
12:46 PM Dale ban: How big of a difference is AJ watching his past play-off succcess going to really mean?
12:46 PM Mike valenti ban: 10% mike
12:46 PM Conor: especially against the Rangers, they will make hhim pay
12:46 PM Ken ban: Good Question Micheal
12:46 PM JP: is it wishfull thinking for the Tigers to go after Prince Fielder and move Cabbera to 3rd?
12:46 PM Jason: I can answer that for you JP – Yes
12:46 PM Conor: absolutely
12:47 PM Mike valenti ban: I dont believe Burnett has the mentakl toughness anymore to get it done. He has given up on himself and seems to just meltdown. The LAST guy I’d put out there tonight.
12:47 PM Mike valenti ban: JP is on drugs. Waive to everyone
12:47 PM Justin ban: why would they move cabrera to third they have Ingey? lol
12:47 PM Conor: the great white hope
12:47 PM Conor: pure michigan
12:47 PM Jason: Will the Lions be able to handle Peppers? Is Backus still effected by the injury or just getting old?
12:47 PM Ken ban: lol
12:47 PM Mike valenti ban: Jason Backus is just…Backus. Average.
12:47 PM AZ ban: Burnett might suck but its not like Porcello has been anything spectacular, still a little nervous
12:48 PM Conor: Porcello can still suck less and win
12:48 PM Thomas: I’m going to stop my Inge hatred for the rest of the season… He got things started last night. Props to Inge and Santiago.
12:48 PM Dale ban: If you were in Girardi’s shoes who would you start?
12:48 PM Ken ban: Porcello is at home too
12:48 PM Conor: The singing hot dog guy
12:48 PM Brian ban: Mike, do you know anything about the atmosphere in East Lansing in the wake of Delvon Roe’s annoucnement last week? How are his teammates reacting?
12:48 PM Conor: has a better chance than burnett I would say
12:48 PM Jason: Should we give Enos more of chance at CMU? He is looking terrible.
12:49 PM Mike valenti ban: Porcello all day over Burnett.
12:49 PM AZ ban: Not complaining just saying people are acting like its for sure, lets not get too excited but yes would rather have porcello
12:49 PM Julius ban: im nervous today as well, porcello is now ace him self
12:49 PM Mike valenti ban: Nio Jason, fire him so MSU can hire him as OC
12:49 PM SammyMac19 ban: Mike how do you like the Tigs against TEX if they play in the ALCS?
12:49 PM hrtuten ban: Now that part of your fear of epic Spartina collapse was alleviated last Sat., how do you see the next three games? I got Spartina going 2-1.
12:49 PM Jason: Please take him back, I was hoping he would have stayed after the MSU loss
12:49 PM Julius ban: i agree porcello over burnett, but anythign can happen, NY has good at bats
12:49 PM CBSDetroitModerator cleared messages from user Ronnie Mund.
12:50 PM hrtuten ban: hrtuten
12:50 PM Joey changed their nickname to Joey.
12:50 PM Mike valenti ban: hrtuten…beat Michigan then talk. I need to see just how good this defense is. Do ANYTHING against Denard and Co. and yes we could split the two after
12:50 PM Conor: Is anyone else wondering why Verlander didn’t just close out the game yesterday?
12:50 PM JP: would Mark Dantonio coach at OSU?
12:50 PM ValentiSlappy ban: Mike, you’re my hero!!!!
12:50 PM Mike valenti ban: Texas cannot win here, Verlander in long series? Yes please.
12:50 PM Jason: Why is Doug talking about using Pappa Grande tonight? Seriously?
12:50 PM ValentiSlappy ban: Boombaye!
12:50 PM Mike valenti ban: Ask doug, I’m not getting inside his head.
12:51 PM Jason: Your thoughts on it Valenti – would you really bring out Pappa Granda tonight in a save situation?
12:51 PM Thomas: So you’re saying Tigs to the WS. Can they hang with the Phils?
12:51 PM ValentiSlappy ban: Mike: Atlanta at home against Green Bay… Think Atlanta pulls it off?
12:51 PM Mike valenti ban: Hell no, guy has thrown 53 pitches in two days and looked like *** last night. No thanks
12:51 PM JP: Mike, would OSU take a shot at Mark Dantonio for next season?
12:51 PM Julius ban: Hey mike if it were to go to game 5 do you think Fister can handle it on the road to pull a W
12:51 PM Mike valenti ban: No, green Bay is sick
12:51 PM Jay ban: Mike, would you go with Ramon tonight against AJ Burnett?

12:52 PM Jay ban: Agreed

12:53 PM Jim Costa ban: Haha so you are saying you arnt scared?
12:53 PM Mike valenti ban: Why would I be scARED cOSTA? I fear teams like wisconsin…not Michigan.
12:53 PM Julius ban: The Gardner Robinson duo seems sick so far
12:53 PM Jason: Mike – Doesn’t CC remind you of an elephant seal?
12:53 PM Quincy ban: Nebraska got crushed by Wisconsin; do you think that’s more a product of Wisconsin being good and actually having a talented QB, or was Nebraska overrated?
12:53 PM Mike valenti ban: Both Q
12:54 PM Mike valenti ban: Julius your mother and Dery would be a sick combo vs Minny. C’mon
12:54 PM Julius ban: lmfaoooo i was waiting for that
12:54 PM Brian ban: After being slammed by everyone coming into the draft, has Cam Newton done enough to prove himself as a legit threat at QB in this league after just four games?
12:54 PM Scott ban: I can’t wait until Michigan has to play Bama next year and then Air Force the week after. can you see an 0-2 start?

12:54 PM Julius ban: you almost jinxed it last night, it would of been your mother hahahaah

12:57 PM Mike valenti ban: This chat is headed downhill fast…
12:57 PM Steve ban: Cousins’s eyes looked like he wasn’t all there competitively. We need the determined and goal focused leader from last year lest fall into mediocrity. Young D can take us only so far.

12:58 PM Brian ban: Are you going to get Terry’s dance partner on the show any time soon?

12:58 PM Josh ban: Mike is the bottom of the big ten, the worst you have ever seen?
12:58 PM Justin ban: OU is -10 Saturday against Texas. I’m on the fence I think FSU was overrated so this should be the first test for OU and this game is always close, what do you think?
12:58 PM FaheyCMU has been banned by CBSDetroitModerator.
12:58 PM Jim Costa ban: Will the Lions/Packers game be a matchup of undefeated teams?
12:59 PM Mike valenti ban: adam avila looked to roll his ankle last night, might not be bad idea. Burnett stinks
12:59 PM Michael ban: Rumor has it Booty Lounge will be in EL next wknd LOL
12:59 PM Brian ban: The Booty Loung is in EL every weekend. Except up there they call it the Brody complex.
