Bless You Boys Podcast 48: Quintin Berry has ThunderClap

We cover the gamut, from Gene Lamont hate to Quintin Berry love, in this week's Bless You Boys Podcast.

BYB Podcast 48 has a running time of 1:01 and features Kurt Mensching, Allison Hagen and Al Beaton.


  • There are 2 tickets available for the BYB meetup in Detroit on August 4th! Contact Allison for details! Be there or be square!
  • The Detroit Tigers just may be a pretty damn good baseball team. Are the Tigers who we thought they were?
  • 1st place is on the line with 3 games against the hated Chicago White Sox!
  • You may think Gene Lamont sucks. Kurt's Detroit News column tells us why he doesn't.
  • Jim Leyland has laid down the law, he will no longer explain explain his sometimes questionable lineups.
  • Should Jose Valverde be replaced as closer? If so, with whom?
  • Apparently Jacob Turner value as a prospect tanked on Monday. That is if you believed the media (who wanted attention) and fans (who were in panic mode).
  • Will there ever be a winner in the "How good/bad is Quintin Berry" debate?
  • Ron Washington is an idiot.
  • This week in media idiocy covers ridiculous tweets from local sports talk radio hosts.
  • The lightning round features Rod Allen's so-called acting, Fake Jim Leyland, corner outfielders and FSD's lame nicknames for Berry - Q-Ball, QB, Quickness and ThunderClap.
  • Final thoughts include summertime heat, Omar Infante and trade deadline rumor mongering from the usual suspects..

Twitter accounts mentioned: @FakeLeyland

Books mentioned: Lee Panas' Beyond Batting Average
