In this episode of the Bless You Boys podcast, HookSlide talks with Perfect Game USA National Scouting Coordinator Brian Sakowski about the ins and outs of baseball scouting: how to spot talent, how to evaluate skills and flaws, what the terminology means, and more. We also talk about a few of the Detroit Tigers' selections in the 2015 MLB Draft: Beau Burrows, Christin Stewart, and Cam Gibson, son of former Detroit Tiger Kirk Gibson. Finally, we talk about some of the prospects currently in the system, such as Joe Jiminez, Michael Gerber, and Derek Hill with the West Michigan Whitecaps, as well as what's going on in Toledo and Detroit.

In this episode of the Bless You Boys podcast, HookSlide talks with Tigers beat writer and MLive columnist Chris Iott about the past week of Tigers baseball. Topics include whether the bullpen has graduated from "terrible" to "not too bad," whether Dave Dombrowski might be looking to trade for another bullpen arm in July and who would be on the trading block, the ongoing neck-and-neck race between the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals, an "anemic" offense (to use Brad Ausmus' word) that seems to be coming back to life, Alex Avila's knee injury, and Brad Aumsus' growth as a manager in 2015.
This should be another discussion-filled episode, as we talk about Nicki Minaj's latest provacative cover art controversey. As we always do, we'll make sure to cover all elements of hip hop in New York City, and this week, the Rock Steady Crew 37th anniversary weekend was a great example of how one of hip hop's pioneering organizations continues to celebrate all aspects of hip hop music and culture.
We'll also talk with Danielle Mastrion who was commissioned to paint a Beastie Boys tribute mural on the corner of Rivington and Ludlow, the iconic intersection on the cover of the group's album Paul's Boutique.
You know we like to go old to the new, so we'll have a bunch of new, noteworthy rap releases to share with you.
So tune in LIVE starting at 10pm, and get ready to call in and discuss with us.

The Magic Lightning Boys (rock, blues, funk)
If nothing else, you have to give props to the The Magic Lightnin' Boys for one thing; they have been able to make a nod to the past sound fresh and modern. Their combination of hard rock and blues should sound similar to other bands who have tried (and failed) to make this sound appealing to a generation who has heard it all, but it doesn't. Not only does it retain a keen sense of identity at all times, it also serves as the perfect springboard for the new foursome out of Ohio.
