For weeks, we’ve been mixing in as much general MLB talk as we have discussion of the Tigers. Largely this is because the Tigers aren’t particularly relevant and weren’t linked in any rumors. Until we have actual baseball to assess, the list of key topics has been pretty short beyond deep dives into the farm system and the rebuilding process.
However, the free agent kerfuffle is behind us until next offseason, major league camps are trimming their rosters, and we’re in the home stretch of the countdown to Opening Day. The Tigers roster battles are shaping up, and we’re already annoyed with Ron Gardenhire. We’re also growing fond of Ron Gardenhire. It’s complicated.
Last week, Ashley and Brandon took on the positional battles shaping up in spring training. They took a look at several league wide issues, and took a crack at predicting the 2018 American League playoff teams. We’ll get back into how the 25 man roster is shaping up when we record Tuesday night. But there are a host of potential issues and topics to break down.
So, what do you want to hear about? We ask for your podcast questions here. Tigers questions both short and long term, questions about prospects and the farm system, general baseball questions, the draft, fantasy baseball, what have you. We’ll tackle anything you’ve got. Post them below, or on Facebook or Twitter, and we’ll get to as many as we can on tonight’s show. Suggestions to improve the podcast, criticisms, complaints, idle thoughts, whatever you’re thinking, we want to know (some exceptions may apply).
We’ve also established a Patreon page here, and if you’re inclined, please venture over and become a Patron of the site and podcast. Your support could do a lot to further our Tigers coverage this season as we continue to look for ways to bring you unique perspectives and Tigers content. We’re still working out rewards for patrons at the $3 and $5 levels at the moment, but features are likely to include a monthly minor league podcast and a mailbag with managing editor, Rob Rogacki. Any suggestions on this front would also be most welcome.
Here’s your chance to direct the show a bit, so let us have it!
