Bless You Boys Podcast 50: Meet Phil Coke's Brain

For Bless You Boys Podcast 50, we decided to pull out all the stops and get the best possibl guest. Instead, we ended up with Twitter sensation "Phil Coke's Brain." Seriously, we think he's kind of a big deal and loved having the disembodied brain of Phil Coke on the podcast! You learn can more about Phil Coke's Brain at his blog, Brain Matters.

BYB Podcast 50 has a running time of 1:11, and features Kurt Mensching, Al Beaton and special guest Phil Coke's Brain.

  • Tigers stand pat at the non-waiver trade deadline.
  • Late afternoon rumors of the Cubs trading the very highly paid Alfonso Soriano to the Tigers lead nowhere.
  • But more rumors state Soriano could still be had in August.
  • Is Soriano a good fit, or would a cheaper, platoon bat coming off the bench be a better option?

  • Where's the offense? I haven't seen it in a week.
