I had the opportunity on Thursday night to chat with Dave Mitchell of UltimateSportsTalk on his weekly BBA Baseball Talk radio show (hosted by BlogTalkRadio). Our topics included the Prince Fielder signing, Mike Ilitch's desire to field a winner, Jose Valverde, the second base problem, injuries, infield defense, Victor Martinez's prognosis, Jim Leyland's smoking habit, and the Central Division race.

Feel free to check out both of the websites linked above, and listen to the show (embeded below or via download). My segment starts at about the 30:30 mark, and lasts about 15 or 16 minutes.
