Bless You Boys Podcast 112: Cobb and Gehringer, a list of two

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

This week, Big Al and HookSlide cover another very good week of Detroit Tigers baseball while debating if purpose pitches are a useful strategy, the weekly shortstop discussion, umpires getting the benefit of the doubt over players, an ALCS rematch and compare Martinez, Cobb and Gehringer K rates.

  • Tigers are steamrolling the AL Central.
  • They may be getting above average defense, but the Tigers are getting little (Danny Worth) to no (Andrew Romine) offense from the shortstop position. Is the time to sign Stephen drew nigh?
  • Brooming the Birds in Baltimore!
  • Miguel Cabrera does it again...and again, and again.
  • Purpose pitch war with the Orioles results in a Bud Norris ejection and many, many words from Torii Hunter.
  • An umpire touches Hunter during the Norris altercation, gets off without being disciplined by MLB. Do you think Hunter would have gotten off so easy if the situation had been reversed?
  • On May 14, a Victor Martinez steal of second was the Tigers' 35th of the season, equaling their season total for 2013.
  • A Tigers - Red Sox ALCS rematch is on tap. Think anyone is looking for a little revenge?
  • Victor Martinez, Ty Cobb and Charlie Gehringer may have something in common.
