Red Sox Major League Spring Training games have started so Ian runs through some things he noticed during the first weekend of games and the recent transactions. Ian then sits down with Geoff Pontes of Baseball America to discuss some underlying metrics they look at with minor league hitters and pitchers and what those metrics show. They also discuss the key rule changes for the minor leagues this year, the reduction of the reserve list and the new complex league schedule, and the impact that could have on teams this year.   Got something to say?

We start off with some college baseball talk and then move on to discuss the Red Sox trade with the Royals where they acquired a very interesting starting pitching prospect. We also briefly touch on the signings of Liam Hendriks and Michael Fulmer, before going through what the top pitching prospects in the system need to do to take the next step in their development!

The offseason's long but so far it's been slooooooowwww.... sorry, we've probably been watching too much White Christmas, but even Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney would've struggled to find something to sing about the Red Sox offseason so far (of course, we recorded the night before the news broke that the Red Sox had agreed to terms with Lucas Giolito). Still, the guys tried to make sense of it all, as well as taking a quick look at the Tyler O'Neill trade, which went down shortly after our last episode. Maybe we just need to keep recording so that moves can happen a day or two later? Got...

At the last moment, the Winter Meetings gave us plenty to discuss. First, the Red Sox moved Alex Verdugo to, of all places, New York, with the Yankees sending three arms in return. Then, the organization lost NINE players in the Rule 5 Draft, while a tenth was traded in exchange for a pick in the Major League portion. At the very least, the club kept a tradition alive by selecting a Yankee in the minor league portion. the guys discussed the comings and goings, and then responded to your emails. (NOTE: this episode was recorded before the Tyler O'Neill trade.) Got something to say? We love...

So it turns out the Rule 5 protection and non-tender deadlines led to a somewhat eventful week! First, the Red Sox turned some heads by declining to add Shane Drohan to the 40-man roster on Tuesday. Then, they swung a minor trade with Seattle on Friday in addition to non-tendering Wyatt Mills. Analysis of all this and some minor league comings and goings, plus your emails, await!

The Red Sox found themselves a new Chief Baseball Officer, and it's a familiar face in former Boston reliever Craig Breslow. Since retiring in 2018, Breslow has worked in the Cubs front office - with some familiar faces - and become known as a rising star in front office circles. So what to make of the hire? Too soon? Was it surprising? The guys gave their thoughts on the hire and what it means for the team going forward. Plus some fall/winter ball talk and of course, your emails! Got something to say?
