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

After focusing on the Lowell Spinners last episode, Chris and Ian emptied their scouting notebooks, which they filled in recent weeks with stops to see the Greenville Drive and Portland Sea Dogs. As if that weren't enough, Red Sox VP of Amateur Scouting Mike Rikard joined the podcast to talk about scouting for the draft generally and the 2019 draft class in particular.

The annual summer hiatus is over. Chris and Ian return to update you with the latest from around the Red Sox' system. First up, they share insights on the DSL guys dealt for Andrew Cashner. The guys do a back of the envelope review of the 2020 big league club bench. From there, Chris goes over the late season promotions. With that covered, Ian and Chris talk about the Lowell Spinners. And man, that club is interesting. There isn't a night where you won't see a dude on the hill. Chris and Ian break down who's shoving, raking and the guys who just need the offseason to get here. In closing, the guys crack open the mailbag to get to your questions.
