On the second episode of the Tigers Minor League Report Podcast, Chris, Jake, Joe, Kellen, Rogelio, and Yoop do their best to guess which Tigers minor leaguers will be manning the Toledo and Erie squads in 2021. Then they talk about where they think 2020 draft picks Spencer Torkelson, Dillon Dingler, Daniel Cabrera, Trei Cruz, Gage Workman, and Col…
 
On the first episode of the Tigers Minor League Report, Kellen, Joe, John, and Chris sit down with Dan Hasty, the voice of the West Michigan Whitecaps, as they talk about how the Detroit Tigers prospects fared in the first week of Spring Training, what relievers and starters could make their move to Detroit and the prospects who are rising up in th…
 
The Tigers just wrapped up their first week of spring training, but the Voice of the Turtle is already back in midseason form! On this week’s episode, Rob and Hookslide break down the first week of games for the Tigers in 2017… or as best they can, seeing as no one broadcasts them (looking at you, Fox Sports Detroit). From the good to the bad, your…
 
The Tigers family was saddened this past week to hear of the death of Tigers owner Mike Ilitch. Fans of the team will remember his legacy for a long time to come, and on this week's show, HookSlide and Rob talk about a few memories of "Mr. I," as well as discuss what his passing means for the future of the franchise. The Tigers are now only one wee…
 
Pitchers and catchers report next week, and spring training games begin in a little over two weeks. Yes, after a weird winter and an especially boring offseason, baseball is finally knocking on the door, and not a moment too soon. In about 16 days you'll be able to turn on your radio and hear the voices of Dan Dickerson and Jim Price calling games,…
 
It may not be that chilly outside, but this has been one frosty winter for the Detroit Tigers. Spring is just around the corner, though, and you know what that means! Yes, your favorite podcast hosts are back with another episode of The Voice of the Turtle! Rob and Hookslide shake off the cobwebs this week, and discuss the winter that was in Tigers…
 
It was a long and weird November, but The Voice of the Turtle is back to break down the MLB Winter Meetings, especially the Tigers' rather strange and unexpected lack of activity. With Rob Rogacki on vacation, Bless You Boys staff writer Brandon Day joins HookSlide on this week's episode to discuss what Al Avila is really up to, whether or not he a…
 
The World Series is almost over -- or perhaps, already over, by the time you read this. The Indians lead the Cubs three games to two, and everything will either be decided by the time this podcast gets posted, or the day after that. Either way, we're on the very cusp of the true baseball offseason, and the Tigers will most certainly be making some …
 
Hard to believe it's been 50 episodes since we kicked off this podcast as "The Voice of the Turtle" in the summer of 2015. We saw the team tank, we saw the team rebound, we saw the team make a run at the postseason this year, and -- if Al Avila's latest comments are to be taken literally -- we're about to watch the team go through something like a …
 
With the MLB postseason still in motion, the #HotStoveSeason has yet to officially begin, which means the Tigers haven't done anything worth talking about since their regular season ended. However! Baseball is still happening (enjoy it while it lasts, folks) and your fearless hosts are able to find creative ways to link the postseason activity back…
 
The Voice of the Turtle is back to its usual makeup this week, as Rob returns from his one-week vacation on Podcastellanos Island. Your co-hosts break down the last few games of Tigers baseball -- ok, it was mostly just sighs of disappointment -- and look ahead at what the offseason holds. Rob and Hookslide also offer their picks for this postseaso…
 
Rubber, meet road. The Tigers have three remaining games left (plus a makeup game, if it's still necessary) before the regular season ends, and they've got some catching up to do. In this week's episode, HookSlide is joined by Podcastellanos co-host Eric Wayne, in an attempt to mix things up a bit and hopefully restore some much-needed mojo to the …
 
Last time we spoke, we thought the Detroit Tigers would either blaze their way to the World Series or flame out spectacularly and miss the playoffs. And we might be right! Unfortunately, we were right for all the wrong reasons last week, as the Tigers stumbled to a 3-4 record in ever-frustrating fashion. The offense isn't hitting, wasting the effor…
 
If it feels like you've heard this week's episode of The Voice of the Turtle before, well... you haven't. But it might sound a bit similar to some of our previous shows because, once again, our beloved Detroit Tigers just can't quite string enough wins together to edge themselves ahead in the AL playoff picture. Missed opportunities, inconsistent p…
 
When you stop watching baseball for over a week, and your team's win percentage looks pretty much exactly the same upon your return, that's probably not a good sign -- at least, not this late in August, and not when your team is struggling just to nail down a second wild card spot. In this week's episode, Rob Rogacki and HookSlide do a "deep dive" …
 
...And yet, we figured out a way to miss nearly all of the baseball that happened since last week's episode of The Voice of the Turtle. So, instead of staying up all night cramming for this week's show like we're back in college (and let's be honest, we'd probably just end up at the bar), we decided to do our first ever Listener Email Show! That's …
 
The Tigers snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, putting a dour mood on this week's podcast. While the Tigers are still red-hot, having won 10 of 14 games leading into this week's show, a three-game losing streak does sting a bit. Of course, there is more to it than just a short skid. Injuries are mounting in…
 
On this week's episode of The Voice of the Turtle, we break down the week that was in Tigers baseball, including just how they have put together such an incredible stretch. We also look back at the trade deadline, and examine the Tigers' decision to stand pat, along with winners and losers throughout baseball. This week wasn't all sunshine and rain…
 
On this week's episode, we take a look back at the week that was in Tigers baseball, from the four-game split in Chicago to the tightrope walk that was the series in Boston. Rob and Hookslide also look ahead to the next week-plus for Detroit. The schedule sets up nicely for them -- a whopping 22 of their next 31 games are at home! -- but does that …
 
Well, it's doubtful anyone saw that coming. Taking two of three from the Royals was always a distant possibility, but losing two of three to the Twins just wasn't in the cards. That's what happens when your offense only scores a total of four runs in three games, though. But onward we go! HookSlide and Rob revisit the Royals and Twins series to tal…
 
After sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays in a four-game series over the holiday weekend, the Tigers dropped five of their final seven games prior to the All-Star break, falling 6 1/2 games behind the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central race and four games out of the AL Wild Card. Where does that leave them? Well, that's the overarching theme on this week'…
 
Timing can be a b**** sometimes, and the Tigers' recent play leading up to the latest episode of The Voice of the Turtle is no exception. After reeling off four consecutive wins over a flailing Seattle Mariners squad, the Tigers were swept -- AGAIN -- by the Cleveland Indians leading up to Monday's off day. The show must go on, though, and this wee…
 
After taking a series from the Yankees in Yankee Stadium, the Tigers promptly dropped a series against the White Sox, including an incredibly deflating loss on Monday night when they blew a 7-0 lead and managed to let the Sox walk off in extra innings. Still, the Tigers are above .500 and still within just a few games of first place in the AL Centr…
 
On this week's episode, Rob and HookSlide break down the week that was in Tigers baseball. From the 5-2 record -- including a sweet sweep of the Chicago White Sox -- to their upcoming road trip, this week's episode is packed full of all the #content you need. That's not all, though! Your hosts also sit down with Brian Sakowski, National Scouting Co…
 
This is always the worst part of the season. West coast road trips. As if it weren't bad enough that the games start late and fans have to stay up into the wee hours of the morning, the Tigers also don't seem to play particularly well on these trips, so we're usually staying up late just to see them lose. The most recent six-game road trip was no e…
 
Well that was easy. See? All the Tigers needed was to play a few sub-par teams at home, and just like that, they're back to .500 baseball. Unfortunately, the White Sox, Yankees, Blue Jays, and Royals loom in the distance, so these next six games against the Oakland A's and Los Angeles Angels are fairly important. The Tigers can gain some ground out…
 
With a four-game winning streak in tow, your fearless cohosts talk about the week that was in Tigers baseball, look ahead to the next month of action, and talk about how this Tigers team is shaping up after 40 games. Notably, manager Brad Ausmus is still around, the offense is starting to perk up, and the bullpen's mini-implosion was just that. Did…
 
The Tigers swept the lowly Minnesota Twins immediately following our last show, but saw the tables turned on them in three-game sweeps at the hands of the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers. As things stand on Mother's Day, the team is on a six-game skid and seven games back in the division. Unfortunately, there's no easy fix this time around. The…
 
After suffering a crushing home series sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Indians, the Tigers got back in the win column by taking three of four games against the Oakland A's. The offense woke up, Miguel Cabrera showed that he's still Miguel Cabrera, and Brad Ausmus continued pushing all the right buttons. Top prospect Michael Fulmer is slated to …
 
Well, that didn't take long. It's not even a full month into the season, and the Tigers have already dropped two series in a row, which makes for some un-fun baseball. But there have been plenty of good things to focus on along the way, and Rob Rogacki and HookSlide discuss both the good and the bad in the last week of Tigers baseball. The good? Th…
 
The Tigers have gotten off to a hot start, winning six of their first eight games -- including matchups against aces Jose Fernandez and Gerrit Cole -- and the numbers behind those wins look even better! They have scored at least four runs in every game and the bullpen looks (gasp!) passable, if not better. We also look forward at the upcoming week …
