Bless You Boys Podcast 9: Jose Valverde is FUN

Much like Johnny Five, Bless You Boys Podcast 9 is ALIVE! Be prepared, this is our longest podcast yet.

This week's roundtable includes editors Al Beaton, Kurt Mensching and the long missing David Tokarz and Matt Wallace, who discuss the past week of Detroit Tigers baseball.

Topics for this week included:

  • Rick Knapp gets the ziggy.
  • The pressure to win is increasing on Jim Leyland and Dave Dombrowski.
  • Four Tigers (maybe five) going to the All-Star Game.
  • Al Alburquerque placed on the 15-day DL.
  • Carlos Guillen's adventures in rehab continues.
  • Trade silliness and speculation, no Jose Reyes for you!
  • Stupid media tricks over at Mlive

We also answer a metric crap ton of questions from the Bless You Boys community (which is why we ran longer than usual). We LOVE to hear from you. So remember, if you would like to have your question on next week's podcast, please email us at BYBPodcast at

Final thoughts: With a little prodding from Al, David tells Cowboy Joe West to die in a fire, Matt sees a rhubarb at Yankee Stadium, and Kurt continues with his curmudgeonly ways.
