Three Strikes (2:25)

  • MLBPipeline.com released its updated top-100 overall prospect rankings this week, so Tyler and Sam spend a good chunk of this week's show breaking down the biggest movers and trends associated with the new group.
  • The site's No. 4 overall prospect Rafael Devers not only jumped up the list, but was also called up for his Major League debut with the Red Sox. The guys discuss the 20-year-old third baseman's readiness and his role with the AL East leaders.
  • The Mariners and Cardinals completed a fun deal involving two prospects. Tyler O'Neill was sent to St. Louis while Marco Gonzales went the other way to Seatte. Tyler and Sam talk about what the trade means for both prospects and why these types of deals should happen more often.

Promo Watch (25:25)

  • MiLB.com's Benjamin Hill is off this week in preparation for his trip up the Eastern seaboard, so Tyler and Sam take over promotion discussion this week. Topics include Bowie's tribue to David Bowie and Potomac's George Costanza Appreciation Night. The hosts go particularly long on the latter because of the promotion's impressive thoroughness.
