Hey everybody welcome back for another episode of the Razzball Prospects Podcast. This week JB Gilpin from the big show takes over the Prospect Pod, so of course Michael Halpern and I talk Brewers. Seriously, JB has blinders on with the Brew Crew, but he gives us his fan first perspective on our top 10 Brewers prospects lists. We jump into the hot callups and promotions throughout the majors and minors, talk some Tyler O’neill, Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Tyler Hill, and of course Dansby Swanson. We also discuss why I’m so damn angry lately. It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Prospect Podcast.

From what you have been saying to Grey regarding Hader is it safe to say you like him better than Cody Reed who got sent back down to the minors? Look forward to getting home and listening to the podcast. Thanks for all the great info.

@Raoul Duke: Yes, but I do like Cody Reed. He has a rough first taste, but I haven’t given up on him. The upside is way higher with Hader. I am far and away the high guy on Hader.

@Ralph Lifshitz: We are allowed 6 minor league keepers in my league. Right now I have Moncada, AJ Reed, Nomar Mazara, Willie Calhoun, Javier Baez and Josh Hader. I was going to hang on to AJ Reed and Baez until next year and move them up. I have had them both on my team for a couple years so I was holding out to see if they make good on their talent. In your mind am I better served putting Cody Reed in one of their spots? Or maybe dropping Calhoun is the answer?

Think Hader will need as long as Johnson to find his major league footing?

@Grey: I’m not sure, he’s similar in terms of the control issues, but it’s not as exaggerated as Johnson’s was early on. His K rates are actually better than Johnson’s at this point. He’s struggled at Colorado Springs but that’s the home park+PCL bump. His FIP is almost two runs lower than his ERA. He could struggle in his first taste but should settle in within a year.
