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

Chris and Ian return to talk about the glacial pace of the offseason. Henry Owens has left the system. JD Martinez still hasn’t signed with the Sox. And while the big headlines tarry, the club has signed some minor league free agents, including Ivan De Jesus Jr. who returns to the club for his third stint. The guys go over non-roster invitations, touching on Chad De La Guerra’s rise from 17th round pick to big league camp. They break down the club’s AAA rule 5 pickups. Finally, they cover both Baseball America’s and Baseball Prospectus’ rankings of the Red Sox system.
