FanGraphs writer Jay Jaffe joins the program to discuss his impressions of the recently concluded MLB draft as a non-obsessive prospect observer, the trends and narratives that have most surprised and delighted him in the young season, and also, the free agent situations of Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel. Please note, this podcast was recorded prior to Kimbrel’s signing with the Cubs, but we think the discussion is still interesting. You can find Craig Edwards’ analysis of the Kimbrel signing here.
