Episode 63: Here's The Tamale Guy!

by Kevin Goldstein

For the first time since Episode 0.9 we do the show with Jason in Mexico City. There's plenty of fun, plenty of prospect talk, a long discussion of the Cubs general manager job, how the Blue Jays are the new flavor of the month and then we get serious, talking to Rany Jazayerli about Syria. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language and subject matter. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Couple things:

KG - You didn't give us who you like at 3rd base (or do you concur with Rendon), if not who is the closest to him?

Jason/KG - A quick synopsis of Pimentel. You guys spoke about Harper, then got into the discussion re: Martin v. Brown and forgot about LF. Besides his 80 power, what else does he offer? Hit tool = ?

I don't accept that draft position makes no difference in how teams treat players vis a vis giving them a shot in the major leagues. The upper minor leagues seem full of guys who were high end picks who never made it but have lingered on, given chance after chance after chance, even over lower drafted guys who have never gotten a cup of coffee. At some point in time it's got to be nothing more than, "Heck, someone thought enough of this guy to draft him in the second round, give him a shot, no one is going to complain that we gave him some hacks."

Orpheum Bell - awesome - like a cross between Gogol Bordello and Tom Waits.
