The Voice of the Turtle, Episode 71: This is better than no baseball

Have you tuned out on the 2017 Detroit Tigers? We here at The Voice of the Turtle don't blame you. The Tigers have fallen well behind the pack in the AL playoff race, and are now playing for 2018 and beyond. Victor Martinez is on the disabled list again, Joe Jimenez is all out of whack, and Miguel Cabrera is a below replacement level player. Things suck.

But baseball is still happening, and we're still going to watch.

On this week's episode, Rob and HookSlide delve into everything that is going wrong with the Tigers right now. They explore what the injuries mean for this Tigers roster, speculate on Justin Upton's future in Detroit, and re-live the Brawl of the Century with the New York Yankees from last week. And since we can only take so much negativity, we also look at Mikie Mahtook's breakout and fawn over some of the Tigers' new prospects.

Topics in this week's episode include:
- Are you rooting for wins or losses?
- Victor Martinez has a bad heart
- Justin Upton: Tiger in 2018?
- Justin Verlander is good again!
- Miguel Cabrera is not
- Is Mikie Mahtook for real?
- Prospectzzzzz (and the Arizona Fall League rosters)
- Listener questions!
- Which new prospect are you most excited about?
