After taking a very unexpected week off due to Al finding himself in the hospital (where I got to watch the Tigers clinch the Central), the Bless You Boys Podcast returns with a vengeance!
BYB Podcast 20 runs 1:05, featuring managing editor Kurt Mensching, deputy editor Allison Hagen and your host, deputy editor Al Beaton.
Topics discussed included:
- Where were you when the Tigers clinched?
- Scoreboard watching is fun!
- 2006 vs. 2011: Which Tigers team is better?
Miguel Cabrera is not going to back into a batting title...unlike a certain Mets shortstop.
- Post season worries, is there a tiny voice in your head saying things like, "Uh oh, which Scherzer will show up?"
- Who's on and who's off the 25 man ALDS roster?
- Does MLB really need another round of playoffs?
- Listener questions ran the gamut and included Top 5 lists, the Tigers' offense against top-tier pitching, 5 and 7 game playoff matchups, you be the 8th inning manager, X-Factors, Red Sox are desperate for a starter, AL and NL awards predictions, must an MVP come off a playoff team, catching and 3rd base in 2012 (we need our weekly dose of Brandon Inge), reviewing "Moneyball," and we give fashion advice.
Final thoughts: Allison is biding her time till Friday, Kurt says Mike Scioscia was right , and Al is ready for more podcasts!
