Ashley and Brandon return as the Tigers attempt to seize a share of first place in the AL Central. What is happening here?? This scruffy band of young players and veterans continues to surprise with some outstanding performances, and a peculiar steadiness that has Tigers fans already believing that their team is never out of a game. Meanwhile, around the league, people are getting in trouble and shenanigans are afoot.

  • The Tigers are ridiculous right now, winning games they shouldn’t, booting the ball around and coming through with huge performances to bail themselves out.
  • Blaine Hardy broke Robinson Cano’s hand, but you’ll never guess what happened next!
  • Ashley and Brandon made it to episode 20 without a big ol’ PED discussion, but no further.
  • MLB and their petty fight over custom cleat designs.
  • Here’s a link to the “Fun Cup” minor league teams with alternate Spanish names and gear.
  • Expectations have been a bitch for years, and there is something freeing about watching the Tigers without them.
