The Voice of the Turtle, Episode 2: Why should we keep watching the Tigers?

New, 10 comments

After a tumultuous trade deadline in Tiger Town, things returned to normal last week. And by normal, we mean losing. The Tigers lost two of three to both the Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals. HookSlide and Rob talk about these games, the upcoming week of Tigers baseball, and how to fix the beleaguered Detroit bullpen without burning the whole thing to the ground.

Even Bruce knows that The Voice of the Turtle is the #1 Tigers podcast on the internet.
