The MLB offseason is off to a quiet start as we wait for Shohei Ohtani and Giancarlo Stanton find a home, but the White Sox did pull off a trade for Thyago Vieira. We debate if he can make the 25-man roster and help the White Sox bullpen in 2018.
Our guest this week is Jim Callis [30:28] from MLB.com and MLBPipeline. He shares his thoughts about Vieira, how the pending Braves punishment will impact the prospect market, and a recap of the Arizona Fall League.
To end, we answer your questions in P.O. Sox:
