Fill in the Blankety-Blank-Blank

From Jim Leyland, on the current Tigers situation (i.e., last place). MLB.com provides the brackets. There are so many it's comical:

"I don't give a [care] what [effect] it has," he said. "When people start making weak excuses in the newspaper, diversionary tactics and [stuff], that rubs me wrong. I don't give a [care] what effect it has. It can't have a bad effect, because we've been as [bad] as you can be. So it can't hurt. I'm not looking for problems here, but I'm a man. I look in the mirror. When I'm [bad], I'm [bad]. And there's a few [players] in that clubhouse right now that are [bad] too. And they need to look in that mirror. Don't look at mine, look at theirs. And don't look at the guy next to them. Look in the mirror yourself. Don't be pointing fingers over here and why we're not doing well. That's all weak [stuff]. Grilli's [stuff], some of that other [stuff] I read in the paper today, that's weak [stuff]. Weak."

A Good Sports Day in Detroit

The Pistons beat Philadelphia to advance to the next round of the playoffs.

The Red Wings complete their sweep of the Avalanche and move on to the conference finals.

The Tigers complete a three-game sweep of the Yankees.

And since it's the NFL off season, the Lions are unable to mess things up.
