The most comprehensive Red Sox minor league discussion on the web.

Throughout the year, we get questions about who the Red Sox will protect from the Rule 5 Draft in the coming offseason. This week, we learned who those players are, so what better time to discuss? Why did the Red Sox protect Jalen Beeks, Ty Buttrey, and Chandler Shepherd? Listen and find out! Plus, the Arizona Fall League is over, so we recapped the fall campaigns of Michael Chavis, Henry Owens, and their compatriots on the league champion Peoria Javelinas. Finally, we mused about how Blake Swihart and Marco Hernandez might fit on the 2018 Red Sox roster.

We recorded a podcast. Then the Red Sox went and did things that made the podcast old news before we even released it. So here is an addendum to our last episode, talking about the additions of Bryce Brentz and Williams Jerez to the 40-man roster; why Rusney Castillo might never see the majors under his current contract; and the Red Sox making some MLB coaching hires, including a few with ties to the farm system. Chris also opened the show with a few words about the passing of 17-year-old Daniel Flores.

Chris and Ian are back to wrap up the 2017 season and look ahead to 2018. In news, the club signed some minor league free agents and the major league club got a new manager. How might those events trickle down to other players and coaches in the system? Is Bryce Brentz coming back? Is Carlos Febles moving up to the majors? (As it turned out, the answer to both was "yes.") Plus, the fall and winter leagues are up and running, so we're due for an update. Wrapping up the 2017 season, the guys discussed some season-end awards and the site's official season-end rankings.
