Good Morning,

On Today’s episode of the show I am joined by Ian Cundall the director of scouting at We spend the first half of the show deep diving into the following topics:

  • Thoughts on the shortened draft including:
  • Is this a short-sighted move for teams?
  • What does this do for baseball long term?
  • With the Red Sox losing a second round pick in a five round draft is the penalty too harsh?
  • How much money does the team actually have to spend now?
  • What are the chances of the team landing good players for $20,000?

We also change gears and discuss Ian’s state of the system series he has been putting out at SoxProspects. We cover:

  • High Minors Pitching
  • Mid Minors Pitching
  • Low Minors Pitching
  • Catchers
  • Corner Infielders
  • Middle Infielders
  • Outfielders

This one is a long one, but if you are into the Red Sox minor league system or the upcoming draft it is a must listen. I’d also urge you to follow Ian on Twitter at @IanCundall and follow myself at @DevJake.
