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

That's Juan Carlos Linares who looks like one of the Beagle Brothers. And if we're referencing JC Linares, who ranked in the top twenty in 2011, then you know that, yeah, the system isn't looking good right now. But that system transformed in a minute during the 2011 draft, and guess what time it is? With the first and second rounds on Monday night, Ian highlighted his take on the Sox draft strategy for the 2018 draft. The guys shared the new rankings, discussing Jay Groome's status after Tommy John, the latest on Tanner Houck and Bryan Mata at Salem, Jalen Beeks and his cut fastball, and scouting reports on Travis Lakins, Ty Buttrey and Williams Jerez. Plus much more.
