Episode 149 is now available for your listening pleasure. Here is this week’s rundown:
- We recap the Texas Rangers series deciding that Derek Holland and vast majority of the bullpen pitchers are toast. Is there anyone that manager Rick Renteria can count on?
- With the fringe relievers failing there has been some good moments from the fringe position players, such as Nicky Delmonico. Has Delmonico made a good enough first impression to convince the White Sox to pencil him on the next year’s 25-man roster? Or, is it still to early yet to tell?
- Preview the upcoming debut starts for Carson Fulmer and Lucas Giolito.
- Our guest this week is Greg Goldstein, prospect writer for Baseball Prospectus. Greg recently scouted the Winston-Salem Dash and shares his reports for Eloy Jimenez, Zack Collins, Jameson Fisher, Seby Zavala, and others. Check out the video he took on his YouTube channel.
- Finally, we answer your questions in P.O. Sox:
