On this show I open up on why I love podcasting and its importance in my life over the last 5 years. Then after that debacle we discuss the challenges with age difference in dating, The World Cup madness, super heroes with handicaps, & much more….
We have the rights to our opinions and to be told to where to STICK THEM.
A bleary-eyed Big Al and HookSlide spend another show talking about the Tigers' bullpen, ponder the pros and cons of the Joakim Soria deal along with the Joe Nathan and prospect fallout, ask how Detroit can 'win' the trade, debunk jinxes and revel in the glory that is Ryan Raburn's throwing arm.
Bless You Boys Podcast 121 was recorded July 25, 2014, has a running time of 73 minutes, and features Al Beaton and HookSlide.
Tigers acquire closer Joakim Soria from Rangers for prospects Jake Thompson and Corey Knebel.
Did the Tigers overpay for Soria?
Trading prospects is the equivalent of buying lottery tickets. You could hit big, but the odds are heavily slanted against you.
Are the Tigers scrapping their future with prospect heavy trades? Was the Soria trade a "screw the future" deal thanks to an octogenarian owner who wants a World Series win NOW?
Should the bullpen have been better addressed during this past off season?
Joe Nathan is still the closer. But for how long? Would Soria be best used in higher leverage situations earlier during a game?
How do we define "winning the trade?"
Fangraphs: Joakim Soria and the value of a postseason relief ace.
When Dave Dombrowski says it's 'highly unlikely" Joel Hanrahan pitches for Tigers, he's actually saying "Hanarahan will not pitch for Detroit in 2014."
Some things will never change, such as the Tigers' connection with Lakeland.
Debunking baseball voodoo: There are no such things as jinxes.
Ryan Raburn is gonna Ryan Raburn. Just ask Corey Kluber.
All that, plus tangents galore!
This week's podcast with Secretary of Defense, Sullivan1995; Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense & America's Securirty Affairs, sportbix; Asssistant Secretary of Defense for Global Strategic Affairs, lulu-lemon!; Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, -=Madara=-; Major, Aljamaaheer; Lieutenant Colonel, David-Rules; and producer, Warrant Officer, CF-AIRCOM
This week Neil Weinberg joins us to talk Tigers, Rick Porcello, Brad Ausmus, and all things stats and advanced metrics. In the second half of the show, HookSlide and Big Al ponder where the Tigers' offense has gone, why it's disappeared and if it can be fixed.
Bless You Boys Podcast 123 was recorded August 8, 2014, has a running time of 1:23 and features Al Beaton and HookSlide.
Special guest: Neil Weinberg of New English D and Fangraphs. Neil can be found on Twitter at @neilweinberg44.
What happened to the offense? Tigers scored just 6 runs during the 4 game series in New York, and just 2 runs in the 3 losses combined.
How to fix it? Who is to blame and is there a quick fix?
Austin Jackson: Has the trade of Jackson, who was big part of Detroit's offense, hurt more than anticipated?
It it far to criticize Miguel Cabrera?
Alex Avila: Hhas the criticism over his bat gotten to the point where it's beyond over-the-top?
David Price: Thoughts on his first start? Was Price the pitcher you expected?
Jim Johnson: Thoughts on the the Tigers taking a flier on the former All-Star closer?
Royals creeping closer: The second place Royals are hot again and have crept within 3 games of Detroit. Time to PANIC?
Dave Dombrowski: Out of the running for MLB commissioner. Feel free to breathe a sigh of relief.
TV Ratings: The team with the highest local TV ratings (with some of the lowest rights fees) is the Detroit Tigers. Their 8.38 household rating is almost a point higher than the second place team, the Cardinals.
All that, plus tangents galore!
Big Al and HookSlide commiserate over what has been an awful two weeks of Detroit Tigers baseball, including throwing players under buses, brutal slumps, assigning blame, more shortstop and bullpen talk and remembering that this too, shall pass.
Bless You Boys Podcast 114 was recorded June 6, 2014, has a running time of 64 minutes, and features Al Beaton and HookSlide.
We missed last week due to Al's medical issues and re-scheduling just not working out. Plus, we remembered how bad the podcast went the last time we tried to record the morning after a west coast night game.
The slump from HELL.
Which are the real Tigers - the team which played like the best MLB, or the worst?
A key to the slump is there has been no offensive production from the outfield over the past three weeks. Going into Friday's action, Austin Jackson and Torii Hunter have a lower OPS than Andrew Romine over the [past 3 weeks
Brad Ausmus has said the Tigers must get better play from the 5-through-9 spots in the batting order. If Ian Kinsler, Miguel Cabrera and/or Victor Martinez don't hit, the offense has been dead in the water.
Eugenio Suarez was called up from Triple-A Toledo and is expected to get most of the playing time at short over Romine. Is the Suarez experiment a panic move?
Joe Nathan has blown more saves and given up more home runs in 2014 than he did over the entire 2014 season as a member of the Rangers.
Did Nathan throw Nick Castellanos under the bus? Did Brad Ausmus handle the situation correctly?
Dave Dombrowski actually broke out from his comfort zone of drafting big, hard throwing right-handed pitchers in the first round of the MLB Amateur Draft by selecting a toolsy high-school outfielder, Derek Hill out of California. There have been comparisons made to a young Torii Hunter, as Hill projects out as a center fielder.
One week after another BYB podcast full of talk of what's wrong with the Tigers, Al and HookSlide revel in their undefeated week, ask what has changed, are impressed by Rick Porcello and J.D. Martinez, appreciate Torii Hunter's honestly, and wave back at Ian Kinsler.
Bless You Boys Podcast 117 was recorded June 27, 2014, has a running time of 56 minutes, and features Al Beaton and HookSlide.
Things were looking dire last week. The Tigers had lost 3 straight to the Royals, dropping 1 ½ games back and appeared well on their way to 3rd place. Seven days later, the Tigers have 7 wins in a row, and are back to 4 1/2 games up in the Central. But what's changed in one week?
Rick Porcello is off to the best start of his career. Thursday night he tossed his first career shutout and second complete game, raising his record to 10-4 and lowering his ERA to 3.41.
Dave Dombrowski tells MLB Network Radio the team is confident Joe Nathan has turned the corner, and that if the Tigers do add bullpen help ahead of the trade deadline, it'll likely be for a seventh- or eighth-inning guy.
J.D. Martinez is named AL Player of the Week, and continues to bash the living Hell out of the ball.
The Tigers' corner outfield positions are getting crowded. Torii Hunter sees the writing on the wall and tells the media he is willing to take a part-time role if that's best for the team.
Ian Kinsler homered in his first at-bat in his return to Arlington, then waved to the Texas bench when running to first (with a huge smile on his face).Flying under the radar is Kinsler's bat, which has been just as hot as the Tigers named Martinez.
Tigers have reacquired Daniel Schlereth, assigning him to Toledo.
All that, and more!
On Bless You Boys Podcast 122 Big Al and HookSlide break from the usual format both a live episode and welcome a special guest. Joining us in the first half of the podcast is Ben Chiswick, play-by-play man for the West Michigan Whitecaps, the Single-A affiliate for the Detroit Tigers.
Ben will fill us in on life as a play-by-play man and give us an in-depth look at the Whitecaps' current prospects and the outlook on the players the Tigers traded away in the deals for Joakim Soria and David Price.
David Price is a Detroit Tiger!
Reactions are mixed in Detroit, happy in Seattle and beyond angry in Tampa Bay.
Is Price Max Scherzer insurance?
Is Justin Verlander bullpen bound for the playoffs?
Tigers and A's in a Cold War style arms race.
Outfield is full of question marks with the trade of Austin Jackson
Curtis Granderson all over again.
Drew Smyly is frowning.
Has Dave Dombrowski gone all-in?
Worries over Joakim Soria.
All that, plus tangents galore!
