Bless You Boys Podcast 76: Dumb baseball

Rick Yeatts

As the Tigers travel to Cleveland, The BYB Podcast returns hoping to soothe a ridiculously nervous fan base.

BYB Podcast 76 has a running time of 56 minutes and features Kurt Mensching, Allison Hagen and Al Beaton.

Topics:

What the Hell happened in Texas?

Apparently two bad starts means Justin Verlander is washed up.

Miguel Cabrera, Baseball God.

Jose Valverde has been Lucky with a capital L.

Is it a coincidence the Tigers have slumped in Austin Jackson's absence?

Al Alburquerque's demotion has the bullpen in disarray.

Drew Smyly is is being badly misused.

Don Kelly should not be playing over Andy Dirks or Matt Tuiasosopo.

Is Alex Avila irreparably broken?

The baseball media is buying into the Indians wholeheartedly. Should we as well?

God help us all if the Tigers lose in Cleveland in the same walk off fashion the Mariners have over the past three games.
