Motor City Bengals Presents “Tiger Talk” with hosts Matt Pelc and Dave Holcomb. In this episode, the two hosts completely cover the Detroit Tigers moves at the deadline. General Manager Dave Dombrowski decided to sell and dealt left-hander David Price, left fielder Yoenis Cespedes and closer Joakim Soria in exchange for several prospects, who are already making an impact with the Tigers or their minor league affiliates.

In addition to taking a closer look at the trades and the Tigers new prospects in the first segment, Pelc and Holcomb also debate the liklihood Cespedes returns to Detroit in 2016. Although the outfielder has said on numerous occassions in the last month that he wants to stay in the “Motor City”, he declided to comment on whether he plans to return after he was traded.
It took Dombrowski a long time to decide whether they wanted or not to buy or sell the last week of July, but perhaps in the future, Dombrowski could have even more time. In the second segment, Pelc and Holcomb discuss the pros and cons of pushing back the trade deadline to the middle of maybe even late August.
To wrap up, the two hosts take a broader look at the trade deadline as a whole and share their biggest and most impactful moves from last week. All that and more in this edition of “Tiger Talk”.
