WATCH: Leyden, Birkett and Niyo talk Tigers, Lions and interview Rick Porcello in the 7 Sports Cave

(WXYZ) - We headed back into the 7 Sports Cave this morning with Brad Galli enjoying the weekend off, so 7 Sports Director Tom Leyden took control of the conversation.

Tom was joined by Dave Birkett from the Detroit Free Press and John Niyo from The Detroit News. They started things off by discussing the biggest sports news of the week - the Tigers' acquisition of David Price.

After tacking that bombshell, the guys then moved on to the opening of Detroit Lions' camp.

Up next was our 1-on-1 interview with Colorado Rockies 2nd baseman - and Brother Rice alumni - D. J. LeMahieu.

We then looked ahead to college football. The season is less than a month away and we took a look at the big expectations in the Big Ten - which expands to 14 teams this year - before coming back to baseball for a discussion with Tigers' pitcher Rick Porcello at Comerica Park. 

Porcello was coming off last night's 11-5 win against the Colorado Rockies.

We wrapped things up with some more baseball talk with Tony Paul from The Detroit News, before getting final thoughts from the guys.

With all that and the Fast 5 Minutes, it was a packed hour!
