Detroit Tigers: MCB ‘Tiger Talk’ Swept in Los Angeles


Motor City Bengals Podcast – Tiger Talk: Tigers Swept in Los Angeles

Motor City Bengals Presents “Tiger Talk” with hosts Matt Pelc and Dave Holcomb. On this episode, Pelc and Holcomb breakdown the tough West Coast trip, which included a four-game sweep at Angel Stadium, and welcome guest, Motor City Bengals Staff Writer Matt St. Jean.

To start the show, the two hosts discuss the struggling Detroit Tigers offense. Detroit has scored three or fewer runs in seven of their last nine games and are 10th in the American League in scoring. Left fielder Yoenis Cespedes has particularly struggled, hitting just .182 in the clean up spot since Victor Martinez hit the disabled list. Both Pelc and Holcomb share their thoughts in what can be done to jump start the offense.

Justin Verlander‘s rehab start and David Price‘s season are the two other major topics in the first segment.

In the second segment, guest Matt St. Jean makes his Tiger Talk debut. He also shares his thoughts on what to do with the offense, Verlander’s latest start and which former Tiger is most painful to see do well in their new uniform.

To wrap up the show, Pelc and Holcomb talk about the return of Josh Hamilton in the “Around the League” segment. Could he and the Texas Rangers, who are now a game above .500, start making some noise in the AL West?
