Leon Halip

In the final BYB Podcast of 2013, Kurt, Al and HookSlide debate the merits of the Tigers' off season moves, eviscerate the BBWAA over the Hall of Fame vote and celebrate the holiday season and Kurt's birthday at the same time by singing horribly.

BYB Podcast 100 has a running time of 55 minutes and features Al Beaton, HookSlide and of course, Kurt Mensching.

Detroit Tigers topics:

Looking back at an off season full of upheaval:

  • Are the Tigers a better or worse team as now constructed than the one which finished two games short of making the World Series?
  • Would you have preferred the Tigers had made one more run at a title with the team as constructed in 2013, or had the window closed on this group of players? In other words, did the Tigers need a shake-up?
  • Do you believe the moves were made due to salary concerns or a genuine need to re-imagine the roster?
  • Do the moves of this off season make the future of this team look brighter in 2015 and beyond?
  • Did the Tigers go too far, not far enough or did they do exactly what needed to be done in retooling the roster?

Looking back at the 2013 season:

  • What was your favorite moment?
  • What moment made you angriest?
  • To paraphrase former NFL coach Denny Green, were the Tigers who we thought they were?

MLB news:

  • When it comes to the dolts in the BBWAA and their Baseball Hall of Fame voting procedures, Al goes all Frank Costanza during the Festivus Airing of Grievances - "I got a lot of problems with you people!"

Birthday news:

  • Al, HookSlde and Kurt all sing ... horribly ... for Kurt's birthday.
