I start the podcast with what I thought was the excitement of Lucas Giolito’s no hitter on Thursday, but it turns out Ralph couldn’t have cared any less about it. I then try to lighten the mood and ask about his weekend, but it just sends him into a deeper spiral of despair. Amed Rosario and Luis Robert did start to pull him out of it, though, and then we really hit our stride by digging into the upcoming 2017 MLB Draft and First-Year Player Fantasy Baseball Drafts. We discuss if Hunter Greene is worthy of the #1 overall pick, and who the other top contenders for that slot are, including Brendan McKay, Royce Lewis, and MacKenzie Gore. We also debate the strategy of taking high risk/reward prospects, such as Austin Beck and Jordon Adell, over some of the safer college players, like Kyle Wright, JB Bukauskas, Adam Haseley and Pavin Smith.

  1. I’m a first time dynasty leaguer. Don’t have a lot of time to watch MiLB. Have the MiLB app to track players and listen to you guys(my guru’s). Having a hell of a time evaluating trades. More specifically active players for prospects. In the midst of a trade…giving up jonathan villar for ramiel tapia. If villar wasn’t so young I would of went for it already. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    1. haha, thanks on the listen and guru status! Even with Villar’s struggles, I would still need more than Tapia. Would have to be at least one more very, very good prospect along with him.
