Bless You Boys Podcast 73: Wait till he hears about wOBA

On the third consecutive Bless You Boys Podcast recorded after a Tigers loss, Kurt makes stats up, Allison returns triumphantly and Al dreads the inevitable return of the Big Potato.

BYB Podcast 73 has a running time of 58 minutes and features Kurt Mensching, Allison Hagen and Al Beaton.


  • The Tigers are having both a great West Coast trip and start to the season.
  • The Tigers' 14 inning win in game two of the Mariners series was epic, weird and epically weird. It may be years before we see another game remotely like it.
  • Revisiting the Doug Fister trade.
  • ESPN's Jim Bowden (ESPN Insider link) seriously suggested trading either Avisail Garcia or Drew Smyly for Padres closer Huston Street. NO DAMN WA...Well, not so fast on Garcia...
  • Changes are looming in the bullpen.
  • Jose Valverde, Bruce Rondon or both?
  • Is it time to retire the #AustinJacksonStrikesOut hash tag?
  • Brandon Inge, beer, peanuts, drunk fans and Toledo don't mix.
  • Carlos Quentin is nuts.
  • Padres CEO Tom Garfinkel, who disparagingly called Zack Greinke "Rain Man", is a despicable human being.
  • Justin Verlander's contract sends a writer for Slate over a disingenuous, self-righteous, edge.
  • It's true, Kurt made up BABIP.
  • All games should start at either 1 PM or 7 PM Eastern. No exceptions.
  • Joe Dumars should be fired.
