    Episode 36: Replacing the Departed and Subverting the Narrative

    in Baseball

    The guys discuss their favorite moments of the 2016 postseason before closing the book on a magical season and discussing potential offseason moves.
    While they appear to have obvious candidates for Dexter Fowler, Jason Hammel, and Aroldis Chapman—things aren't as simple as they might appear.
    Epstein and the Cubs have another busy offseason ahead of them. 
    Here are our top moments from the postseason:

    Episode 35: The Cubs Win the World Series!

    in Baseball

    They did it! Joel and Carlos were on hand in Cleveland to witness the epic seventh game of the World Series, while Isaac and Ryan watched from home. They collaborate to give their recollection of the events, including how this changes things for the Cubs and their fans going forward.
    Plenty of time is spent waxing poetic about the dramatic weight of the event, but the guys find some time to dig into the nuts and bolts of the game as well--including some headscratching decisions by Joe Maddon and a late Rajai Davis home run that nearly ruined everything.
    Thanks for listening this season! It's been a pleasure to do this podcast, and we appreciate everyone from the bottom of our hearts. Please continue to reach out on Twitter @BPWrigleycast and via email at bpwrigleycast@baseballprospectus.com and send us your questions and comments.

    Fantasy Prospect Podcast: Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers Prospects

    in Baseball

    A very special Black Friday edition of the Prospect Podcast this week. Where we discuss two teams that are like stores with completely different inventory. One being the well stocked Cleveland Indians system with plenty of merchandise for prospect hounds. The other being the Detroit Tigers and their going out of business sale with only candle holders and shell shaped soap on the shelves. Yes Ohio vs Michigan and just in time for Ohio vs Michigan. Myself and Michael Halpern of ImaginaryBrickWall.com maintain order so no one can rush the doors and crush other shoppers. Wow I'm really lost in this analogy. Nevertheless it's the latest edition of the Razzball Fantasy Prospect Podcast.

    The Catbird Speaks 11.30.16 - Waiting for death

    in Baseball

    The gang of James Fegan, Ethan Spalding, Collin Whitchurch and Mark Primiano gather together to once again ponder the seemingly immiment but possibly never happening White Sox rebuild.
    --Will Chris Sale get traded? How long will it take? Can they rebuild without dealing Sale?
    --What about one-year rentals for Todd Frazier and Melky Cabrera? When do the Sox get moving on that?
    --If the Sox don't move Sale, do they roll the dice on winning in 2017 without making any effort to improve?
    --Can Jose Abreu get traded in this market?
    --What if the Sox keep Jose Quintana? Can they build around him?

    Episode 29: "Butch Goldstein and The Balsamic Kid"

    in Baseball

    In Episode 29 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett discuss the paucity of Mets news for the week. The Rule 5 adds quickly get sidedrained into a consideration of whether Phil Evans would make the Marlins Top Ten. Jarrett is very excited about Eric Campbell's NPB career, and we are both pretty copacetic with Neil Walker accepting the qualifying offer.
    In the second half of the show we are joined once again by Craig Goldstein to discuss the rest of the NL East farm systems, Jeffrey defends his Dominic Smith and Andres Gimenez rankings, we all compare Lucas Giolito and Robert Gsellman again, and no one really wants to talk about the Marlins farm system.
    In the third half of the show, Jeffrey and Jarrett barely make it through housekeeping without getting distracted, then we answer your e-mails, and then Brady comes on for an hour (where did I lose control of this show) to talk about Rick Porcello and the pro wrestling.

    Episode 214: What do we talk about now?

    in Baseball

    Welcome back to Amazin' Avenue Audio. We are living in a post-Cespedes speculation world, and it is glorious!
    First up, Brian and Chris discuss the new CBA, and present our AAOPs, both of which are sort of silly for different reasons. (1:24)
    Next, Aaron Yorke discusses the speed at which the Mets signed Yoenis Cespedes, and the Mets' potential Winter Meetings wheelings and dealings. (39:39)
    Finally, Steve Sypa and Greg Karam discuss numbers 25 through 11 on the the Amazin' Avenue Mets Prospect list. (45:08)

    Ep. 109: He's Still Mike Trout

    in Baseball

    George Bissell and Mike Gianella of Baseball Prospectus break down the AL-only landscape from a retroactive valuation perspective (5:00), late-career renaissance of Justin Verlander (11:00), likelihood of Rick Porcello replicating his Cy Young campaign (14:00), value of elite relievers like Zach Britton and Andrew Miller (16:00), bounce-back potential for Sonny Gray and Felix Hernandez (23:00), fantasy impact of a league-wide decline in stolen bases juxtaposed by the recent home run surge (31:00), how the power uptick is diminishing the value of elite sluggers who don’t run like Mark Trumbo (42:00) and why Mike Trout, Jose Altuve and Mookie Betts are a cut above the rest in the AL (47:00).
