In episode two of the Bless You Boys Podcast, it's a roundtable discussion between site editors Kurt Mensching, Al Beaton, Allison Hagen, Matt Wallace, and David Tokarz (along with special guest star Donner Mensching), covering the past week of Detroit Tigers baseball.
We want to answer your questions every week! You can send them to us at BYBPodcast at gmail.com.
On most weeks, the release time for the podcast will be either Thursday or Friday morning, depending upon when the Tigers' getaway day game is played that week.
Topics covered in episode 2 include:
In news broken by BYB, the Tigers plan to bring up pitchers Charlie Furbush and Andrew Oliver from Toledo, while Joaquin Benoit loses 8th inning setup job. The editors break down the soon to go down rotation and bullpen fallout.
Sparky Anderson famously said you can't judge a team until 40 games have been played. Sparky's throw away line is now considered gospel in Detroit. As the season has reached Sparky's 40 game plateau, the editors judge the Tigers, and name their biggest surprise and disappointment.
Magglio Ordonez is on the 15 day DL, who will step up in the outfield?
The editors answer several questions from the Bless You Boys community. Again, if you would like to have your question on next week's podcast, just email us at BYBPodcast at gmail.com.
Kurt rants about the waste of time he believes is interleauge play, Al gives Jim Leyland grief for his small ball fetish, David is concerned by the lack of talent in the Tigers' minor league system, Allison is sick and tied of rain outs, Matt isn't worked up about anything, and special guest star Donner the German shepherd puppy makes his thoughts known on the mainstream media!
