MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox David Dermer-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back for another edition of the podcast. This week there is a lot of 40-man roster talk as the Red Sox announced who was protected from the Rule 5 draft. Jake and I go player-by-player of the seven who were added to the roster and talk about when their debut could come as well as what their role might be when they eventually make it to the major leagues.

Additionally, we talk about Eduardo Rodriguez and the good news regarding his health and plans for the offseason, Jake and I talk a little bit about what that means for the Red Sox rotation and what our expectations are for Rodriguez for 2021. We also discussed a couple of Red Sox rumors around Kris Bryant and what a trade offer might look like from the Red Sox if they want to land the former NL rookie of the year and NL MVP, as well as a possible run at Hunter Renfore. We also hit on the recent coaching hires and what they tell us about what the Red Sox are trying to form around culture and atmosphere with the team and of course, answer your listener questions.
