How do the guys feel about the team's chances for clinching that AL Central now? The guys also talk Parker Meadows demotion to AAA, Kenta Maeda's illness, and who could be getting called up soon. After the break, Mark and Evan welcome on to the pod Paul Hoynes, Cleveland Guardians beat writer for Cleveland.com.

    Continuing the conversation on Tarik Skubal's Cy Young Award contention and individual player struggles of Detroit Tigers

    Continuing the conversation on Tarik Skubal's Cy Young Award contention and individual player struggles of Detroit Tigers

    After giving the city of Detroit and the Lions a well deserved hat tip for an unprecedented  NFL draft weekend, the guys get right to business addressing the must-see TV pitching of Tarik Skubal. The guys thought the ace could seriously contend for a Cy Young Award at the start of the season, how do his numbers add up against his peers and where is he at in the conversation so far? After covering Skubal's heat, the guys shift to a much colder subject and focus in on the team's puzzling offense. While an immediate answer eludes both the front office and the "Days of Roar" crew, the guys focus in on the offensive issues of Parker Meadows and Colt Keith. Could either benefit from a stint in AAA? Mark and Evan also continue to scratch their heads at a drastically underperforming Spencer Torkleson.

Great Podcast with One Exception

Love this podcast with the exception of one major annoying flaw. Mark Goresh constantly speaks of himself in 3rd person. Normally only does it a couple times per episode, but this week he did it about 8 to 10 times and I almost had to leave the podcast and unfollow the show. If inot for this, it would be a 5 star rating.

It’s …fine

Tigers fans don’t have many options; this and Turning the Corner are the only tolerable podcasts. While the latter is superior imo, this one at least sounds relatively professional most of the time and has some worthwhile content. I could do without the personal background stuff, but that’s whatever, I can skip forward. The real flaw of the show is definitely Gorosh’s ego. I’m glad Evan is bemused by his partner’s ridiculous hot takes and vendettas; but me? Listening to Gorosh, I wonder how this man goes through life without getting Tim Anderson’ed on a regular basis.

EDIT: of course, the episode that was posted as I left the above review was actually a good one, not weighed down by the issues I complained about. Bobby Scales was interesting to hear from and I appreciated the guarded defense of
Wentz. The negative fan circle jerk has gone way overboard there.
