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

It's late July, which means both the MLB trade deadline and the draft signing deadline are approaching? Will the Red Sox trade for a first baseman? Will they sign Jud Fabian? Will we be able to keep the two deadlines straight? It's always a question as things get hectic on the player acquisition front! Chris and Ian talked about both pending deadlines as well as (finally) the AAA debut of Connor Seabold, another round of promotions led by Kutter Crawford, and your emails!

With another draft in the books, the guys brought back MLB Pipeline's Jim Callis for his regular visit to the show! He discussed the Red Sox' draft, including where Marcelo Mayer is going to rank on his list, which players might (or might not) need overslot deals to sign, and more! Before our esteemed guest, the guys checked in for the first three games of the Jarren Duran era, then crowed a bit about calling the recall of Tanner Houck. Then Chris ate some crow for saying that the Red Sox would not acquire anyone for CJ Chatham, as Victor Santos has become the newest Sox prospect. After our normal transactions check-in, we got to more of your terrific emails!

It's July and another jam-packed episode of the podcast. With the Draft around the corner, the guys welcomed ESPN Insider Kiley McDaniel to the show to discuss the players who might be fits for the Red Sox at the 4th overall pick in Sunday night's draft. But first, the guys had plenty of news to talk about. The promotion wheel is turning, and the Red Sox opened a 40-man roster spot with a transaction many of you have asked us about... but with a different player. And why did Jarren Duran get shut out of both the Team USA and Futures Game rosters? Plus, the guys talked about the July 1 rankings update and, as always, answered your emails. Told ya, jam-packed!
