Kurt, Allison and Al revel in what was a hugely successful season opening home stand for the Detroit Tigers in the latest Bless You Boys Podcast!
BYB Podcast 34 has a running time of 1:11 and features Kurt Mensching, Allison Hagen and Al Beaton.
- Another BYB Meetup reminder!
- Thanks to Baroque being unable to sleep, there is now a FanPost for ALL of your fantasy rosterbation needs. If you do so in the game threads, we will mock you mercilessly in the next podcast!
- Everyone on the Tigers is off to a fast start...save for a few of the usual suspects.
- There's lots to like and very little of concern after a 5-1 home stand.
- Who is the Tigers' week 1 MVP?
- Ohhhh, Jackson! Austin Jackson, that is...
- The fact there are no wins from Justin Verlander, or anyone else in the starting rotation, during the 5-1 start is as fluky as it comes.
- Doug Fister to the DL, Adam Wilk joins Drew Smyly in the rotation.
Daniel Schlereth is the new BYB whipping boy. Is it deserved? Allison says yes, Kurt says no.
- The Cult is no more. Clete Thomas designated for assignment.
- Victor Martinez is still not ruled out for a late season return from knee surgery..but don't count on it, either.
- As expected, there are more John Lannan rumors. Expect nothing to come of them.
- The Tigers seem to be doing just fine despite the baseball hipsters decrying the dire straits of the minor league system for the past several years.
- Time for Boston Red Sox fans to panic? We sure hope so!
- The small market Cincinnati Reds give long-term, mega-dollars contracts to Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips. Crazy smart...or crazy insane?
- Ozzie Guillen says he loves him some Fidel Castro, gets suspended 5 games. Chicago White Sox fans point toward the Miami Marlins...and laugh.
- Letters from listeners, where we recommend a few Twitter accounts from journalists we think are worth following.
- Red Wings fan Al and Sharks Kurt both think Brendan Shanahan is an idiot. It needed to be said.
mentions: We are on an a hiatus from from all things Inge.
