Bless You Boys Podcast 116 was recorded June 20, 2014, has a running time of 67 minutes, and features Al Beaton and HookSlide.
This week we discuss the reaction to Brad Ausmus' unfortunate joke, see encouraging signs despite the Tigers losing 3-of-4 to the Royals, ponder the possibility of benching Torii Hunter, hope Joe Nathan and Justin Verlander are fixed, and know when it's time to not be nice.
Brad Ausmus' attempt at a post-game sarcastic joke causes a firestorm of controversy and several apologies. Was some of the anti-Ausmus reaction caused by frustration with his team's performance?
The past week has shown the difference in experience levels between Ausmus and Jim Leyland.
HookSlide goes into Little League coach mode to refresh everyone on just what this thing called second place is and how you can find your team there.
The Detroit News' Lynn Henning advocates a fire sale on Twitter.Despite the calls for extreme moves, it's still too early to PANIC.
Fans want their pound of flesh, but no coaches will be fired. The possibility of a lineup change exists.
J.D. Martinez clubbed Royals pitching to the tune of a .500 average, three home runs and six RBIs. Since being called up, Martinez has given the Tigers something Torii Hunter hasn't provided in weeks - offense and not being Hunter on defense.
Bullpen roulette: Luke Putkonen is out indefinitely after elbow surgery. Band-aids Corey Knebel and Evan Reed have been sent down, replaced by Band-aids Blaine Hardy and Chad Smith.
The Joe Nathan whom we saw strike out the side against the Royals after finding an arm slot issue would go a long way toward fixing what has ailed the bullpen.
Justin Verlander as been awful of late, but he cannot be sent down nor should he be sent to the bullpen.
In this episode of the Bless You Boys podcast, HookSlide chats with Detroit Tigers television play by play announcer Mario Impemba of Fox Sports Detroit. HookSlide and Mario break down the Tigers' eight-game losing streak, their first such streak since 2005, and talk about everything from Brad Ausmus' role in the melt-down to the starting rotation, to the faltering offense, and everything else in-between.
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 this episode of the podcast, HookSlide catches up with Detroit News columnist Kurt Mensching. Topics include Shane Greene's recent rough outings, Brad Ausmus' bullpen management, Joba Chamberlain's struggles, Victor Martinez, and the recently opened spot on the Tigers' 40-man roster.
In this episode of the Bless You Boys podcast, HookSlide chats with Ryan Dunsmore of SB Nation's Houston Astros site as well as BYB staff writer Jon Erkkila. Astros topics include: early dominance in the AL West, the apparent success of the rebuilding project, World Series odds, and more. Tigers topics inclue Victor Martinez's trip to the disabled list, whether Victor's contract extension looks any different in light of his injuries, the emergence of Alex Wilson as a stable bullpen piece, the struggles of Joba Chamberlain, Brad Ausmus' sometimes questionable strategies, and analyzing the issues behind the streaky Tigers offense.
In this episode of the Bless You Boys podcast, HookSlide talks about the West Michigan Whitecaps and the Detroit Tigers with Ryan Schuiling, host of the WBBL Morning Show and color commentator for the West Michigan Whitecaps. Topics include who's hot for the Whitecaps so far, Brad Ausmus' early approval rating, what to do with Joe Nathan, Dave Dombrowski and the bullpen, the improved Tigers defense in 2015, and more.
In this episode of the Bless You Boys podcast, HookSlide catches up with BYB staff writer Jon Erkkila to talk about Brad Ausmus, Max Scherzer, James Shields, the new baseball commissioner Rob Manfred, and more!
Pastor Brad Morgan of New Life Beginnings Church in Pattison, TX Continues teaching from Psalm 18. Psalm 18 was written near the end of David's life to declare the faithfullness of God, but, actually the Psalm came to David the day that he was delivered from the hand of Saul.
With David, no one saw a king, but God saw a king. God is able to bring tremendous change in our lives. This change is a process. The change that causes us to find the assignement that God has for our lives comes with provision and blessing. In Proverbs 10:22 says, "The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it and neither does toiling increasith." When we are working in the assignment the Lord has for us, the blessing of the Lord will cause us to be rich in all ways. Even Jesus increased in favor and stature with God and man (Luke 2:52).
Whatever God has called you to do (even if it is more than one thing), as we accept that calling we come into agreement with our assignment from God. No matter how hard the enemy attacks, you might want to quit, but the Spirit of God will tell you to stay with it. This was evidenced for David even in a time of great trial. In 1 Samuel 22:1-2 it says, "David therefore departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. So when his brothers and all his father’s house heard it, they went down there to him. And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him. So he became captain over them. And there were about four hundred men with him. David was in agreement with his assignment to be a leader, a King.
Pastor Brad continues to teach from Psalm 18.
"Hell is a provision of God's love...So for those who refuse the offer of God's loving rule there is a place where they can be free from it forever." -Jan Hettinga, Follow Me.
It's called Hell.
A place where all of its citizens have said to Jesus, "Not Your will but mine be done." A place filled with former atheists, to be sure. But also a place filled with former pastors, preachers, church-goers and hypocrites. A place where, according to Jesus, the common denominator is...
