If All-Star weekend should be celebrated for anything nowadays it should be for it’s premier event. That of course being the MLB Futures Game! What’s that you ask? Am I a little out of touch with reality right now? No, you are! Do you want to start this right here? Right now? EXACTLY! (beats chest a few times like an ape) This game is by far my favorite part of the entire shindig, and this year’s crop has a ton of talent on the USA team and the World squad. With this in mind and fresh on the heels of my Top 100 release, Lance and I cover the gambit. Starting with some updates from around the minors, followed by some Top 100 talk, further followed by the 2018 MLB Futures Game Preview. This show is jam packed with knowledge and ready to go!

You probably just answered this in the previous comments but Triston McKenzie took a big drop down to 85 on your list. I have been holding him a while. Is it the “overrated pitchers” you feel you did before or is there more of a risk with him than originally suspected?

The list is awesome. Have it book marked and refer to a lot already. Thank you. I’m sure it took a lot of hours to put together.

@Ralph Lifshitz: Is that why Allard dropped from 50 to completely off the list despite pitching pretty great this year?

Ralph – was fairly surprised to see Logan Allen miss out on the midseason rankings, especially since he only seems to be getting better, and is putting up great numbers at AA (i.e. MLB ready in today’s game).

Any thoughts?

With the fantasy trade deadline a month or so away, I wanted your take on keepers for next season. Here are my keeper caliber players. I can keep 4:

Trout, Harper, albies, gleyber, Springer, Kershaw, madbum, thor and Verlander.

If I had to pick today, my choices would be trout, Harper, albies and Clayton (I could be convinced to keep gleyber).

Wanted your input so I can identify possible trade chips. Thanks!

@Mike: package Springer and one of those pitchers for a 1st round bat

@batflix: I also own Paxton and Nola. Springer and one of those 2 enough for a first round bat?

Can you give me a little more on Nathaniel Lowe? I see he is having a breakout season, and you have him ranked #70 in your top 100, while sites like MLB.com(I know those are real life list and not fantasy), don’t even have in their top 30 for Tampa. Is he their 1B of the future, or is Bauers and McKay blocking him? Just seems 1B prospects are pretty weak, and Tampa has 3 of the top 10. Lowe is not owned in my 20 team dynasty, so I’ll prolly be targeting him in my next 1st year player draft. Where would you rank him in a first year player draft? Thanks Ralph

Ralph, I wanted to get your input on Jake Bauers. What do you think of him ros? I have some guys that I want to bale on like beltre or hosmer
Do you like bauers more than them ros, obp league? Also bauers needs one more start in OF to qualify there which will be helpful. Is he under the radar and underowned in fantasy given his plate discipline? 14 homers in minors last year could be 20 in the majors. He can also steal a bag. Am I being to optimistic or does he look like a nice asset to deploy in the 2nd half? Thanks
