As Grey and B_Don sit down to talk about baseball on this week’s pod, we have but one question… WHAT IS GOING ON WITH JUAN SOTO? He’s approaching the Mendoza line for batting average in the 2nd half (while having an OBP close t0 .400, but still). Is there something wrong or just a blip? Where do the guys think the young stud OF ends up being drafted next year?
After the Soto panic has subsided, we move on to talk about some of the strong 2nd half performers. What do you do with Jake McCarthy for next year? Is the #3 guy on the player rater over the last 30 days a top 50, top 100, top 200? Then, we look at Bo Bichette’s amazing 2nd half and decide where he is going to end up for 2023, and what players we might be taking over him.
We move on to some impressive young arms in Spencer Strider, George Kirby, and Jeffrey Springs. We discuss the latest Japanese import rumors as Kodai Senga could be on his way to being posted. Find out what kind of comp the guys have for him if he makes the leap across the pond. As usual, we wrap up the show with some bullpen SAGNOF help and some names to monitor on the waiver wire.
