SORT BY Relevancy
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.
In an episode all about the Benjamins, Al and Hookslide cover the fallout from the Tigers' historic contract extension with Miguel Cabrera, Max Scherzer's contract negotiations ending in futility, the acquisition of ancient shortstop Alex Gonzalez and Forbes estimating the team's worth at $680 million.
Bless You Boys Podcast 105 has a running time of 1:03 and features Al Beaton and HookSlide. Kurt Mensching will be back next week.
Tigers, Cabrera formally announce 8-year extension, commit to 10-years and $292 million overall.
MLB execs disgusted over Miguel Cabrera extension.
Fans of advanced metrics are calling the Cabrera extension the worst contract ever. What a surprise!
But is it really that crazy of a contract in retrospect? $30 million may look like chump change in ten years.
Tigers were between a rock and a hard place. Let Cabrera walk in free agency, the fans get upset. Sign the best hiotter in the game to a contract locking him up for the remainder of his career, the fans get upset.
Tigers' GM Dave Dombrowski contended it's better to extend a pending free agent early on the process, believing a player is more likely to leave the longer you wait.
The Tigers may not be all that worried about the long-term ramifications of a contract extension thanks to the ridiculous amount of TV money MLB teams earn.
Max Scherzer and the Tigers cease contract negotiations.
Scherzer's agent Scott Boras claims it was the Tigers who rejected a deal.
Tyler Collins makes the team as a left fielder.
Tigers obtain shortstop Alex Gonzalez from the Orioles for utility man Steve Lombardozzi.
Forbes values Tigers at $680 million, 15th overall in MLB. Anyone else think that figure sounds low?
Doug Fister will start the season on the DL. The Tigers win the trade!
1A- Serena Williams beats Maria Sharpova for the 15th time in a row and then takes the Sony Open.
2A- Northwestern University football players have won their case against the NCAA.
2B- Final Four Predictions.
3A- Miguel Cabrera signs extension for $292 million and $31 million per year.
3B- NY Mets and NY Yankees preview.
4A- Manny Pacquiao vs. Tim Bradley II!! Bradley's thoughts...
5A- Johnny Manziel excels during his Pro Day.
5B- Ray Rice is indicted and marries his fiance.
5C- Maurice Jones-Drew joins the Oakland Raiders.
5D- The Philadelphia Eagels sign Mark Sanchez and cut DeSean Jackson.
Miguel Cabrera is on pace to go down as one of the greatest hitters baseball has ever seen, and his remakarable 2013 season has experts talking about him in comparison to the likes of Joe Dimaggio, Willie Mays and others.
So, how far can Cabrera take the Tigers this year? And will Nick Castellanos be along for the ride?
That, plus a look at the Lions through two preseason games. Is this team doomed to another subpar season?
Miguel Cabrera hit his 400th career home run over the weekend, blasting one to center field against the St. Louis Cardinals. Is he the greatest Detroit Tigers player ever? And where does Miggy rank among Gordie Howe, Ty Cobb, Barry Sanders and the rest of Detroit's all-timers?
We take on that subject, plus look ahead to Tuesday's NBA Draft lottery and Wednesday's possible Mike Babcock decision.
