Episode 75:

Three Strikes (2:05)

  • The Minor League postseason began this week for all full-season leagues, so Tyler and Sam start with a discussion on their favorite storylines heading into the playoffs at the Triple-A and Double-A levels.
  • Strike Two moves down to the lower levels, where the talent isn't necessarily as high but the lure of a ring is just as real. The guys break down what they're watching at Class A Advanced leagues and below.
  • With the sun setting on the regular season, Tyler and Sam discuss how they believe the 2016 Minor League season will be remembered. 

Dylan Carlson interview (32:00)

  • Cardinals No. 21 prospect Dylan Carlson joined the show one day after helping the Gulf Coast League Cardinals capture their first-ever title. The 17-year-old outfielder also talks about getting picked 33rd overall in this year's Draft, his adjustment to the pros and what type of year it's been for Sacramento-area baseball.

Ben's Biz Banter (42:40)
