“For the times they are a-changin”

– Bob Dylan

You will soon notice that things are going to be a little different around here, starting with this post. I would introduce myself, but if you are reading this, you likely already know me from the several hours of prospect banter I have recorded right here on the Razzball airwaves with the self-proclaimed “Prospect Jesus,” Ralph Lifshitz. This podcast is one thing that isn’t going to change, and Halph is back at it again this week, starting off by talking up Hunter Greene, along with two other prospective two-way talents in Shohei Otani and Brendan McKay. We then shift focus to some of the fast risers on Top 100 lists, including Cody Bellinger, Lewis Brinson, Anthony Alford, and Kyle Tucker. And oh yeah, we also may or may not mention a few of those changes I was talking about before. It’s the latest edition of the Razzball Prospect Podcast.

    I too have always thought of Ralph as the prospect gardener. He’s quite the mow and blower…from what I’ve heard. Trimming the Austin Hedges and raking the ranks like the intergalactic Brandon Rodgers in the the 25th century. Great to finally see your name on the post partner.

      @J-FOH: haha … The Prospect Gardener definitely sounds like a horror film. And thanks man.

      @J-FOH: Totally agree J-Foh. About time our man Halp got a post on here. The more Halp the better I say!

        @Rosscoe: Fucking awesome Rosscoe! Thanks. More Halp coming, ha

          @halp: Hell yeah! Lovin’ it Halp.

          Totally agree with you guys that I hope McKay signs as a bat. I’ve heard he could legit pitch this year in the show as a back end guy, he’s that advanced, but not that much upside. However it looks like he could be a stud bat. Lets see if a ball club has the nuts to draft a 1st baseman that high.

            @Rosscoe: Yea, exactly. The discrimination against 1B college bats is legitimate. It’s going to be really interesting what happens with him on draft day.

              @halp: Yeah, I’m dying already! McKay and Pavin Smith look like they should go top half of the 1st round, but we’ll see what happens. Mind you, a HS righty going 1st would be just as unusual.

                @Rosscoe: MLB draft is easily my favorite these days, even though the broadcast is extremely rough around the edges to say the least. And this year is going to be very interesting like you said, without great up the middle college talent. Could be very high school heavy in the early rounds.

    Trying to get a bead on w hy we’ve been drooling over Bellinger but not Hoskins, who’s establishing himself as a great power hitter AND has demonstrably better plate discipline. Prospect hounds missing this guy because he’s already 24 and not on the Dodgers?

      @Starlin ‘Didn’t get those Vitamins at K’ Marte: Age is a factor but also he doesn’t have the elite bat speed and athleticism of Bellinger. Hoskins stock should certainly be higher though with what he is doing outside of Reading.

        @halp: So dude, I pulled the trigger on that trade we talked about on imaginarybrickwall.com To remind you, it’s an OBP league, I traded away Senzel for Collins, Calhoun and a 2nd rounder. The other owner valued Willie as high as Soto, there wasn’t a chance to buy low on him. Thoughts?!

          @Paste: Definitely a trade that makes Dynasty Leagues so fun. I still like Senzel the best, but when it comes to prospects, you are probably better with the 3 really good prospects than putting all of your eggs in one basket.

    You are very welcome Halp. It was my pleasure to light the torch that ended in another spot for you. Glad to have your smooth shit Razzing all over us.

      @nick the smooth dick: much appreciated, your work has not gone unnoticed. Can’t say it was expected, but looking forward to picking up the torch for a little while.

    Nick Noltes face!

    I think Boras employs a team of hackers and spy’s and gets dirt on everyone. He’s the J Edgar of sports agents and probably dresses up like a lady
