SORT BY Relevancy
The Tigers upset themselves against the worst team in the National League, the Milwaukee Brewers, 3-2 in the first of a 3-game series at Comerica Park, and I go crazy about it, as Ed Smith co-hosts with me. This has to be one of the most disgraceful games we've ever seen! DISGRACEFUL! I'll explain it.
I also have an update each on Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander and Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock, who was earlier reportedly offered a 6-year, $30-million deal by the Buffalo Sabres.
Is Justin Verlander's reign of dominance over?
Are the Astros and Marlins actually...Good?

The Bless You Boys Podcast returns after a six week hiatus! Kurt, Al and HookSlide come out swinging by debating Kate Upton, Max Scherzer's regression, ZIPS Projections, farm system rankings, the BBWAA and the Hall of Fame vote and PED mudslinging.
Justin Verlander has core muscle surgery.
Was Kate Upton involved?
Tigers to explore a long-term deal with Max Scherzer, avoiding arbitration with one-year $15.525 million contract.
Scherzer will not talk contract during season, optimistic about a new deal.
How badly will Scherzer regress in 2014?
2014 Detroit Tigers ZiPS projections released, are quite optimistic.
Nick Castellanos named the 37th overall prospect by Baseball Prospectus.
Farm system rankings are as relevant to team success at the big league level as college football recruiting rankings are to winning national championships. It's all BS.
Hall of Fame voting causes more controversy as Jack Morris falls of the ballot and Alan Trammell continues to be stupidly ignored.
The BBWAA is badly broken. To show just how badly, Dan LeBatard gives his hall ballot to Deadspin, resulting in a sensible ballot and his vote being revoked permanently.
Alex Rodriguez PED suspension lowered to 162 games.
Everyone came out of the Biogenesis scandal looking bad, especially MLB.
Expanded instant replay approved by MLB, will go into effect this season.
Expect rules changes to result from controversial replay calls. See the NFL and the 'process of the catch.'
Angel Borrelli and Joe Janish talk baseball pitching mechanics and injury prevention. In this episode, they discuss updates with pitchers from previous episodes, such as Homer Bailey, Jonathon Niese, Justin Verlander, Vic Black, and Masahiro Tanaka. In particular, Angel explains the connection between Vic Black's herniated disc and his shoulder weakness, and she goes into detail about Tanaka's reduced velocity. Finally, Angel provides a velocity tip by illustrating -- with photos referenced at OnBaseball.com -- how pitchers need to, and fail to, "get over the front leg."
