Well, a little over a year after the "forgot to hit record" incident, Chris screwed up and deleted the audio from part 2 of last week's podcast. However, he made up for it by recording a new episode with Ian Cundall, going over the news--including Will Middlebrooks' demotion, Garin Cecchini's promotion, and Trey Ball's signing--before delving into the players to watch in Lowell and the GCL this year. Also, Chris sneezes really loudly during the middle and leaves it in to show he's a good sport.
This week we open with another track from Young London's new EP, Instincts, called "That Feeling." Check them out on iTunes, at facebook.com/younglondonmusic, and on the Spotify stage at this summer's Warped Tour.

After a big week for the Red Sox, Chris Hatfield, Matt Huegel, and Ian Cundall reviewed the results from the Red Sox' 2013 draft. They speculate on which of the highly-ranked high school players might sign, discuss their new draft binkies, and answer reader questions. Plus, the guys got to some news on the farm, including Xander Bogaerts's hot streak and potential to be promoted soon, Brandon Workman's actual promotion to Pawtucket, Jose Iglesias's official graduation to Boston, and the start of the Dominican Summer League. And of course, Chris makes a bunch of references that nobody gets, per usual.
