Welcome back to another edition of The Red Seat Podcast. On today’s episode of the show Keaton and I are joined by our most frequent podcast guest Ian Cundall of SoxProspects.com.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with Ian’s work over at SoxProspects, take a few minutes to go check it out. If you follow the Red Sox minor league affiliates there is no better place to go than their site. You can also find Ian on Twitter at @IanCundall.

Ian helps both Keaton and I make sense of the recent trade with the Phillies by breaking down the two players the Red Sox got back. Nick Pivetta is a guy with some good stuff that hasn’t been able to find success at the major league level. Connor Seabold is the more interesting of the two players and Ian breaks down his pitch mix and why he may be able to have success as a starter.

We then spend the remainder of the show breaking the Red Sox roster down into the following groups: likely trade candidates, maybe trade candidates, unlikely trade candidates, and untouchables. We then also discuss a few bullpen arms that it makes sense for the Red Sox to keep unless they are part of a larger deal.

Overall the discussion is very enlightening and a must listen to as we approach Monday’s trade deadline. The Red Sox will almost certainly be one of the most active sellers and there is no better podcast to get you primed for this. We not only discuss which players are likely to get traded, but also what kind of return you can expect for these players.
