Red Sox Podcast
The most comprehensive Red Sox discussion, from the minor leagues up to Fenway, on the web.

We are less than a week away from the start of the 2021 Major League Baseball season and the guys want to get going already. Chris and Ian have the latest analysis of the big league lineup. They start with the rotation, and what Tanner Houck and Connor Seabold need to do in Worcester. For hitters, the guys talk through what to do with Michael Chavis, Bobby Dalbec and Jarren Duran, as well as the surprising spring of Jonathan Arauz. They also discuss the various rule changes that will be tried out in the minors this year. And as always, we get to the mailbag and your terrific questions.Thanks for writing in and make sure to send your questions to
